How Invisalign Works
Today it is common for people to have crooked or gapped smiles even after having braces in the past. In reality, majority of the people with crooked or gapped teeth are extremely self-conscious about their appearance, and live their lives not smiling. Honolulu, Hawaii Invisalign provider, Dr. Dino Dee has the ability to change that by using one of the most revolutionary orthodontic treatments ever created, the Invisalign system.
Invisalign consists of a series of virtually invisible clear aligners that you replace every two weeks. Each aligner is custom-made and is designed to shift your teeth progressively into proper alignment. Since each aligner is custom-made to the exact calculation to fit your smile and bite, you can be rest assured that the Invisalign treatment will be creating a smile that truly fits you.
Initially, we start by examining your mouth including your teeth, jaws, jaw joints, muscles, and view them completely as a functional system and decide whether Invisalign is the correct treatment for you. The Dr. Dino Dee will then take precise impressions of your teeth that are then submitted to the Invisalign labs. Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Align Technology will create your custom aligners based on the Dr. Dee’s instructions. Each set of clear aligners are worn for two weeks, shifting your teeth gradually millimeter by millimeter each week until the best results have been obtained. The typical turnaround time on a full Invisalign treatment usually lasts about 12 months, however, each case differentiates and may require more or less time.
Invisalign Express consists of a maximum of 10 trays in the system, which is a minimum of 20 weeks of treatment not including retainer treatment. This is for cases that require little movement, mild crowding and mild to no rotation. It is an excellent system for rebound cases of people who had braces before.
Unlike the traditional metal braces that everyone can see, Invisalign is almost completely invisible and undetectable. Invisalign will not hold you back from life’s daily chores because you can completely remove your aligners to eat, drink, brush and floss. You will also enjoy the comfort of not feeling irritation to your gums and cheeks that are associated with traditional metal braces, since Invisalign has smooth edges.
