The Invisalign Difference
Customized Plastic Aligners: Invisalign treatment is centered around a series of clear plastic aligners that are custom designed specifically for your unique dental needs. These aligners are comfortable to wear and discreet, making it a popular choice for both teens and adults.
Convenience and Comfort: Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign allows you to straighten your teeth at your own pace. The removable nature of the Invisalign trays grants you the freedom to maintain your oral hygiene with ease. You can brush and floss your teeth just like you normally would, and there are no restrictions on eating or drinking during treatment.
Variable Treatment Duration: On average, Invisalign treatment lasts approximately two years. However, it's important to note that each patient's needs are unique. As a result, the duration of treatment can vary from person to person, depending on the complexity of the case. During treatment, it’s important to follow Dr. Pavlushkin’s instructions carefully. Once you’re finished wearing the aligners, you'll transition to a custom retainer to ensure your teeth remain properly aligned.
The Personal Choice for a Beautiful Smile
Invisalign is not just about straightening your teeth; it's a personal choice that empowers you to achieve the smile you've always dreamed of. To ensure the effectiveness of Invisalign treatment, there are certain guidelines that need to be followed. When patients adhere to the prescribed protocol, the results can be truly remarkable, leading to a beautifully aligned smile.
What to Expect During Invisalign Treatment
Invisalign treatment begins with an in-office consultation. During your appointment, Dr. Pavlushkin conducts an oral exam, reviews your dental health history, and asks about your goals for treatment. She also takes oral X-rays to assess the position of your teeth and jaw. Next, Dr. Pavlushkin takes digital scans of your mouth and uses a computer-aided design program to develop a custom orthodontic treatment plan that maps the gradual movements of your teeth. After finalizing the plan, Dr. Pavlushkin sends your scans to a dental laboratory to craft your first set of Invisalign aligners.
Once you have received your first set of custom aligners, you can expect the following during your course of treatment:
Regular Tray Changes: Throughout your Invisalign journey, you will receive a series of aligner trays. These trays need to be changed at designated intervals to facilitate the gradual movement of your teeth. To achieve the best possible results, wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day, only taking them out to eat or brush your teeth.
Office Visits: Periodic visits to our Old Bridge, NJ dental office are an integral part of your Invisalign treatment. During these visits, our team will assess your progress and make any necessary adjustments to ensure your treatment is on track.
Guidance and Support: At Empire Dental Group, we take pride in working closely with our patients to ensure they are following the Invisalign guidelines correctly. We believe that effective communication and patient education are key to achieving the best results.
Keeping Your Aligners Clean
Keep in mind that Invisalign aligners are just like traditional braces in that they collect food particles, plaque, and bacteria. To keep them in optimal condition, Dr. Pavlushkin and the team recommend rinsing your aligners several times a day in warm water. For more intensive cleanings, ask the team about the Invisalign cleaning system.
