Align Your Smile With Invisalign in Stittsville

Overview

Many adults would like straight teeth but do not want to show braces. Invisalign is an excellent alternative for these patients. Invisalign is a custom made appliance made of medical grade to progressively straighten your teeth. These aligners are a clear, effective and comfortable way of moving your teeth. Each tray is slightly different from the one before it, moving your teeth closer and closer to the desired result. Invisalign is an excellent appliance choice for those individuals with higher aesthetic demands. Being removable and clear, they are comfortable and easy to manage.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign is a blend of modern 3-D computer graphic technology and ages-old traditional orthodontics. You will be fitted for a system of twelve to forty-eight clear aligners that will only be removed when you are eating, drinking and brushing your teeth. On a week-by-week basis, your teeth will move oh so gradually until they reach the desired placement specified by you and your dentist during your consultation. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks, though this duration can change from person to person, before moving up to the next Invisalign aligner.

Could Invisalign Be the Right Choice for You?

Since this system of aligners is all but totally invisible, Invisalign is considered a popular option for anyone who doesn’t want to have visible metal braces on their teeth. Having traditional braces can make some people feel less than confident, and Invisalign offers a solution to this problem!

Unfortunately, Invisalign is not an option for everyone. You can schedule a free consultation here at Stittsville Braces to determine if this is indeed the right choice for you and your smile.

Treatment Process

Step 1 - The Initial Consultation With Stittsville Braces, Your Local Invisalign Provider
We have amassed quite a lengthy experience with Invisalign, and will happily discuss your needs with you during your first consultation in our offices. She will evaluate your teeth and your specific needs before deciding whether Invisalign is the appropriate treatment for your unique situation. During this consultation, she will gladly answer any questions you may have about the process, including cost, insurance and anything else that you’re curious about.

 

Step 2 - Designing a Treatment Plan Just for You
After your consultation and our dentist and you have decided that Invisalign is the right appliance to treat your condition, you will undergo a series of x-rays, pictures and impressions of your teeth. These images and impressions will be used to create a 3-D image of your mouth digitally, which will be the basis of your treatment plan. At this point, you should be informed of the length of treatment, which is usually about a year for adults. You will be shown a visual representation of how Invisalign will gradually move your teeth into their corrected positions.

 

Step 3 – Receive Your Customized Invisalign Aligners
You will then receive your Invisalign aligners, and treatment can begin! Unlike traditional braces, these aligners are made of a clear and smooth BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate your mouth like the metal in some braces can. You will wear an aligner every day, removing them only to eat or to brush and floss your teeth. Each aligner in this system will work toward shifting your teeth into the desired position.

 

Step 4 – Changing Your Aligner
Every two weeks, sometimes more or less depending on what your orthodontist says, you will change your Invisalign aligner, swapping out your current one for the next step in your treatment. Every six weeks or so, it is recommended that you book an appointment at our offices so that we can best monitor your progress and make sure that these aligners are working out as best as possible for you. Whenever you change your aligners, you will be able to see the results taking form right in front of your eyes.


Step 5 – Finishing Your Treatment
At the end of this process, you will go to your orthodontist, who will check your results and tell you whether or not you will need retainers to keep your teeth in their correct positions. At this point, you will have finished with the Invisalign aligners and should now have your best, straightest smile yet!

Unfortunately, Invisalign is not an option for everyone. You can schedule a free consultation here at Stittsville Braces to determine if this is indeed the right choice for you and your smile.

Treatable Cases

Spaced Teeth

This occurs with the abnormal continued growth of the jaw bone. When teeth are missing, this can also be caused by the surrounding teeth shifting due to extra space. Spacing issues between teeth can lead to gum problems (due to lack of protection by the teeth), periodontal pockets and an increased risk of periodontal disease.

Overly Crowded Teeth

In many instances, this orthodontic issue occurs when there is simply a lack of room within your jaw for all of your teeth to fit normally. When left untreated, overly crowded teeth can get worse over time. This crowding can lead to plaque accumulation, tooth decay and an increased chance of gum disease.

Crossbite

This occurs when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned. It causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth and can happen on both the front and the sides of the mouth. This can lead to abnormal tooth wear and chipping, and periodontal problems including gum disease and bone loss.

Underbite

This occurs when the lower teeth protrude past the front teeth. It is usually caused by undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or both. This can prevent the normal function of front teeth or molars, which can lead to tooth wear. It can also cause painful jaw and joint problems.

Overbite

What people commonly refer to as an overbite is known to dental professionals as overjet. It occurs when the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth. It is typically caused by genetics, bad oral habits, or overdevelopment of the bone that supports the teeth. This can lead to gum disease and chipped or fractured front teeth.

Why Invisalign

Invisalign for Teens

Invisalign Teen was designed specifically with growing teenagers in mind, after numerous orthodontists, parents and teens weighed in and collaborated together to bring this treatment into reality. Being a teenager is not easy, and with big, metal braces things can become even more challenging. But Invisalign can fit easily into any teenager’s schedule, and keep their appearance completely intact with this near-invisible technology! And since it can be so easy to lose the alignment appliances, you will even be given extras!

Here at Stittsville Braces, we value making you happy and confident with your smile, whether you’re an adult or a teenager in need of some realignment.

How Invisalign Teen Works To Treat Your Teeth

First, you will sit down with your dentist and discuss whether Invisalign Teen is the right treatment option for your unique features. If it is decided upon, then you will be fitted for a series of eighteen to thirty customized aligners, designed specifically with your mouth in mind for optimal comfort and invisibility. 

After receiving your Invisalign aligners, you will come back to us every eight to ten weeks so that we can measure your progress, for about six to fifteen months. The duration of this treatment depends on a lot of things, but most specifically on the details of the issue that we’re using Invisalign to remedy. The sooner you get in to see us, the shorter this experience is likely to be.

Each aligner will be worn for about two weeks, being removed only to eat, drink and brush. You will then use the next aligner in the process, repeating these steps until the process is finished and your grin is looking its best.

Conditions Treated by Invisalign Teen

Like traditional braces, Invisalign Teen is designed to remedy many kinds of issues that you may have with your bite. These conditions include but are not necessarily limited to:

  • Teeth that are widely spaced apart

  • Teeth that crowd each other

  • Overbite, when your top teeth come out just a bit further than your bottom teeth

  • Underbites, the reverse of the overbite, where your bottom teeth stick out further than your top teeth

  • Crossbites, when one or more of your teeth are tilted toward the cheek or tongue

Invisalign for Adults

You may be aware that most orthodontists recommend straightening teeth in the teen years. Perhaps you have children who are getting braces, or you've simply seen teens with braces around the place. The reason this happens is because teeth are not fully set in place until the age of 20. If we apply braces or Invisalign to teeth before they are fully set in place, it is generally a more efficient straightening process.

However, it is important to understand that this does not mean we discourage adults to straighten their teeth. Adult teeth are still able to be moved using braces or Invisalign. It may take a little longer than it would in the teen years, but this shouldn’t be a deterrent to achieving the straight smile you have always wanted.

We often recommend Invisalign for our adult patients as it is an extremely discreet and comfortable straightening method. Invisalign trays are made from a clear medical-grade plastic that fits over the arch of your teeth. This means no bulky metal and no uncomfortable comments from friends and acquaintances.

Another major advantage of Invisalign for adult patients is the fact that the trays are removable. Removable trays mean patients are able to brush and floss teeth as normal, maintaining a high oral hygiene level throughout the entire straightening process. This also allows patients the flexibility to remove their aligners for special events that may arise within the treatment time frame, so they feel completely like themselves.

Invisalign relies on the compliance of the patient. As the aligners are removable, some patients find it hard to remember to wear them or choose only to wear them at certain times. While taking them off for a special event is one of the drawcards of this type of treatment, leaving them off for extended periods of time will limit the effectiveness. It is recommended to wear the aligners approximately 22 hours a day to ensure results.

Invisalign has helped thousands of patients around the world achieve the cosmetic results they were looking for. However, you may require structural treatment too which may not be able to be treated using the Invisalign system. Severe crowding, problems with your bite and teeth that need pulling down or moving across will need a more adaptable treatment such as traditional braces. The best way to know for sure is to come in for an assessment with Stittsville Braces. We will be able to offer you the best advice on treatment and help you to make the right decision for you.
