Invisalign and Orthodontics

Invisalign and Orthodontics

Invisalign®️ is becoming a popular alternative to braces for teens and adults. Invisalign®️ is a set of clear plastic aligners custom-fit to the patient throughout their treatment plan. These aligners are replaced over the course of treatment as teeth begin to straighten.

The doctors and the oral healthcare professionals at Aurora Dental Studio, want to educate their patients, current and new, on the benefits of the Invisalign®️ option.

The benefits of Invisalign® occur both during and after treatment. The advantage of convenience and comfort occur during treatment, and the advantage of confidence and self-esteem occur after.

The Benefits During Treatment

Today’s dental patients are generally goal-oriented and busy. There are expectations of the most advanced procedures without any downtime. Older teens can smile proudly in selfies and continue to participate in school activities, and professional adults can give a powerful presentation at work.

The aligner trays can be removed when eating and when performing one’s oral hygiene regimen. Unlike traditional braces, the aligner trays are easily removeable and there are no food restrictions.

Invisalign®️ patients report greater comfort and less sensitivity during treatment. Patients must visit the orthodontist every 6-8 weeks for an exam and, possibly, for the next aligner set. The cost and the length of the treatment plan are specific to each patient and cannot be equally compared to other Invisalign®️ patients or to patients with traditional braces.

The Benefits After Treatment

Invisalign®️ patients have the benefit of watching their teeth come into alignment over the treatment period. Their hygiene regimen continues without change or interruption. In addition to the confidence and self-esteem, Invisalign®️ patients experience a functional bite for speaking and chewing.

Orthodontics is the field of dentistry that corrects teeth not properly placed in the jaw. In addition to a better smile and an improved appearance, straight teeth are healthier. Teeth that are crooked, or that do not fit together properly, have a higher risk for decay, gum disease and cause extra stress on the muscles used for biting and chewing.

The doctors and the Orthodontist at Aurora Dental Studio want to educate their patients, current and new, on the field of orthodontics and whether this treatment method may be an option for you to consider.

How do I know if I need orthodontic treatment?

It is the dentist, or the orthodontist, that makes this determination. The treatment plan, if any, is made from diagnostic tools, a review of the full medical and dental history of the patient, a clinical exam, impressions, special x-rays and photographs.

If you have any one of the conditions below, then you may be a candidate for orthodontic treatment:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Cross bite
  • Open bite
  • Misplaced midline
  • Spacing
  • Crowding

How does orthodontic treatment work?

There are many types of appliances, removable and fixed, to retrain muscles, to influence jaw growth and to straighten teeth. These appliances work by the application of gentle pressure over time.

Below are examples of fixed appliances:

  • Braces
  • Fixed appliances that attach to teeth
  • Fixed space maintainers used when there is premature loss of baby teeth

Below are examples of removable appliances:

  • Aligners
  • Removable space maintainers
  • Removable retainers
  • Retainers for jaw repositioning
  • Lip and cheek bumpers
  • Palate expanders
  • Headgear

The Orthodontist will determine the treatment plan that is right for you, based on the diagnostic information acquired, and your overall goals. Call or visit us for a free consultation.
