Invisalign/Orthodontics

What happens during an orthodontic consultation?

The dentist uses orthodontic consultations to determine what course of action is needed to treat misalignments and overcrowding of teeth. In most cases, x-rays are taken and sometimes digital photos and 3D mapping. These special images help the dentist to see exactly what is going on inside the person’s mouth and jawbone. This ensures that the best treatment is provided. When the patient will be using braces, digital x-rays will be taken. This only takes a few minutes. A soft, plastic cheek retractor is placed in the patient’s mouth to get a clear image of the teeth. Orthodontists suggest that children get a consultation once they turn seven, although they may not need treatment right away or at all. Adults can also get a consultation to correct issues which were not addressed earlier.

What are Invisalign® aligners?

Invisalign® is an orthodontic tool used to address misalignment and overcrowding without using metal like conventional braces. The Invisalign® system’s aligners are made from clear, BPA-free plastic which has been approved for medicinal purposes. These aligners are very unlike traditional metal braces. They are nearly invisible when worn and won’t irritate the cheeks and gums. The Invisalign® system uses impressions of the patient’s teeth to create personally made aligners. X-rays and 3D images are taken to gather the precise specifications needed to make the aligners. This information is then given to a laboratory where the aligners are constructed. Each set is made to gradually move teeth into place, and they are changed every two weeks.

When will my braces be applied or my aligners provided?

Once the impressions and x-rays have been taken, an appointment will be set up where the braces will be applied to the teeth. In some cases, braces can be applied on the same day the images are taken. If Invisalign® aligners are chosen, it can take about four weeks for them to arrive from the dental lab. When they have come in, the orthodontist will arrange a visit with the patient to explain how to use and clean the aligners.
