The procedure of Invisalign treatment
Invisalign is a particular type of orthodontic treatment that is used to restore the positioning of teeth. At Dr. F. Isaac Hakim dental clinic, we offer Invisalign treatment in place of braces, aligners or other teeth realignment measures. In cosmetic dentistry, Invisalign treatment is one of the most sought out dental procedures in teeth enhancement.
Unlike other tooth realignment methods, Invisalign is entirely clear. This makes it solid for other people to spot whether you have Invisalign on. Invisalign are also quite soft and easy on the gums and teeth making them a very comfortable form of dental treatment. Invisalign aligners are designed to be easy to fit and remove in order to simplify the patient’s task of fitting the Invisalign.
How are Invisalign fixed?
Most people are opposed to Invisalign treatment due to the fact that they do not have enough information concerning this procedure. Lucky for you, Invisalign treatment is a simple procedure that may take only a single day to fit and adjust the Invisalign. However, our dentist must first conduct a dental consultation before any treatment can begin.
Consultation and screening
During the consultation, our dentist will try to assess your dental situation in order to provide a systematic treatment plan for your dental issue.
For Invisalign treatment, we normally ensure that the patient’s dental health is completely healthy before starting the procedure. This means that if you have any decay or infections, the dentist will have to treat those first.
In screening, our dentist uses a special scanning machine to take the 3 D scan of your dental structure. The dentist will use this scan to determine how best to provide Invisalign treatment. At Dr. F. Isaac Hakim dental clinic, we offer top-notch consultation services, and in most cases, we can start treatment on the day of consultation.
After getting the scans of your dental structure, the dentist will use them to design Invisalign aligners that are suited to your specific dental issue. Designing the digital framework of the Invisalign may take some time, and our dentist may have to schedule another appointment.
The dentist will let you see the digital image of the Invisalign for you to know whether they are suitable for you. If they are okay, the dentist starts on creating the Invisalign aligners. Creating the Invisalign aligners may take between two to four weeks. After they are ready, the dentist will contact you.
Fitting the Invisalign
After getting the Invisalign from the dental lab, our dentist will help you fit them and show you how you can remove and place them. You can check on how comfortable they are and if they are restricting any jaw movement. If so, you can simply explain it to the dentist and get a better set of Invisalign designed for you.
The dentist may have to design another Invisalign set for you later on meaning you may have to go for dental checkups. Our dentist will advise you on how long you should have the Invisalign and the proper way of maintaining and taking care of them.
