Invisalign Clear Aligner in Abu Dhabi UAE
Invisalign Clear Aligner
Often we notice a change in our teeth’ positioning and alignment, which significantly affects the overall aesthetics of our face. Luckily, modern dentistry provides a solution for our misaligned teeth. In dentistry, orthodontics deals with issues related to misaligned teeth. The advancement in orthodontics allows patients to choose from a variety of options for teeth straightening and Clear/Invisible being one of them.
What are clear/invisible aligners?
Clear/Invisible aligners are clear and removable plastic aligners or trays. These Invisible aligners or plastic trays can solve several orthodontic issues such as crooked teeth, malocclusion, and the gap between the teeth. They fit around the contour of the teeth and can be worn all day long except for chewing and cleaning purposes. This is a great alternate option as compared to conventional metallic braces that are fixed and much complicated for cleaning purposes.
The treatment procedure for Clear/Invisible aligners
The orthodontist will first complete all the initial assessments and the plan for Invisalign with the patient’s consent. After the assessments, a 3D tray, made up of clear plastic is made. The trays must be custom-made under a controlled environment. The orthodontist will then guide and deliver the instructions regarding how to wear and how to clean them. Clear/Invisible aligners require multiple adjustments and replacements (every month or as recommended by an orthodontist) until the completion of the treatment.
How long does it take for invisible aligners to straighten teeth?
The length of treatment with invisible dental aligners is determined by how far the teeth must be shifted and moved. Treatment lasts anywhere from ten to twenty-four months. However, if you are an adult who had braces as a youngster and your teeth have shifted somewhat over time, you may just need invisible aligners for 10 to 12 weeks.
Advantages of Clear/Invisible aligners
Clear/Invisible aligners possess many advantages over conventional metallic braces such as
– They are clear and invisible in color hence aesthetically pleasing.
– The treatment time varies depending on the severity of the misalignment.
– These are removable and easy to carry.
– Invisible aligners do not produce difficulties while chewing and talking.
– No complications such as wires, brackets, etc., hence easy to clean. Just remove the trays and brush them with simple tap water and toothpaste.
How much is invisible/clear aligners for adults?
Invisible/clear aligners are a bit expensive than traditional braces, however, there is no way to know for sure without knowing your teeth’ precise demands. Every individual is different and so does their oral health needs. A dentist will first make a thorough assessment, clinical and radio graphical exam. After that, a care plan and treatment plan are devised, tailoring the patient’s needs and requirements. Here, it is to be noted that the cost of clear aligners varies for each patient. Many factors affect the actual cost and need to be considered before proceeding to the actual Invisalign treatme
- Basic oral health status (condition of the gums, teeth, and supporting structures)
- Medical health
- The complexity of the case
- What is the dental practitioner’s level of qualification and experience?
- Where are you getting treatment from?
Am I a good candidate for clear/invisible aligners?
Adults and teens are the ideal candidates for invisible aligners since they are custom-made for a snug fit. It’s more difficult to straighten a child’s teeth. The oral structures of young children are still growing and developing, so the dentist must keep this in mind while planning clear/invisible aligner treatment. Patients with mild to moderately crowded teeth or moderate spacing difficulties are often treated with clear/invisible aligners. However, significant crowding or spacing issues, as well as severe underbites, overbites, or crossbites, may necessitate more extensive treatments.
Management and maintenance
To achieve good results home management is necessary for addition to clinical management. The bacteria present in the oral cavity play a huge role in producing diseases of soft and hard tissues. Especially, in such cases where a dental appliance is involved, bacteria and plaque tend to hide under or between the crevices of the appliance and damages, the tooth enamel and gums. Therefore, it is necessary to clean the dental appliance (clear/invisible aligners) and the oral cavity meticulously.
Some basic cleaning instructions need to be followed before and after wearing the clear aligners.
- Twice brushing with a soft toothbrush and fluoridated toothpaste using correct methods.
- Flossing should be followed as well.
- Brush and clean the aligners after brushing your teeth.
- Consumption of a healthy diet is essential.
- Refrain from the colored diet such as red wine.
- Refrain from tobacco, alcohol, and other addictive substances.
