Comprehensive Invisalign is a popular tooth straightening treatment designed to address a wide range of complex orthodontic cases that have a huge impact on a patient’s confidence. After all, your smile is often the first thing a person notices about you.
Depending on each patient’s bespoke requirements, this can be used to treat an array of conditions, including, overbite, crossbite, overcrowding, underbite and overjet, and more people than ever before are opting for this treatment instead of traditional braces.
If you are considering this option to improve your smile, you have certainly landed in the right place. We’ve created a helpful guide outlining everything you need to know.
A Clear Alternative to Traditional Braces
Invisible braces are a fantastic alternative to traditional metal braces in so many ways. For example, unlike metal braces, clear plastic Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, making them incredibly discreet, without compromising on results.
Designed to provide a flush fit against the teeth, they don’t cause the cuts or discomfort associated with other braces. Ultimately, you can go about your day-to-day business with minimum impact, and achieve a smile that you are proud to show off.
How Does Comprehensive Invisalign Work?
Each set of your aligners, gradually pushes your teeth into the desired position, allowing you to achieve your teeth straightening goals over time.
Designed to rectify moderate to severe teeth misalignments, the vast majority of treatment plans take around 7 months to complete, with more complex cases taking longer. Your dentist will closely monitor your treatment plan to ensure that no adjustments are required.
Who is a Suitable Candidate for Comprehensive Invisalign?
This is now one of the most sought-after treatments for people looking to enhance the look and feel of their smile.
However, this treatment isn’t suitable for everyone. For example, if you have gum disease, cavities, or ongoing concerns surrounding your oral health, your dentist may be reluctant to proceed with this treatment. At the same time, patients who have dental implants, bridges or TMJ disorder may not be the best candidates for Invisalign.
Of course, before opting for any treatment, it’s important that you always consult with your doctor.
Dental Problems That Invisible Braces Can Address
One of the main benefits of invisible braces is that it can be used to treat an array of conditions, including the following:
- Crooked Teeth
- Gaps in Teeth
- Open Bite
- Crowded Teeth
- Tooth Shape
Benefits of Comprehensive Invisalign
There are a number of different benefits that come hand in hand with this option, including the following:
- More comfortable than traditional braces
- Allow for better dental hygiene throughout treatment
- Can rectify a vast range of dental problems and prevent other issues.
- Non-invasive scanning
- Eat and drink as normal
- Boost confidence
Process of Getting Comprehensive Invisalign
Once your dentist has determined whether you are a suitable candidate, your dentist will then take a 3D scan of your mouth, so that a bespoke treatment plan can be put together.
This digital plan will outline each stage of your treatment, so that you can see the results you will be working towards. What happens next?
- You will receive your custom Invisalign aligners
- You will be asked to attend regular appointments with your dentist so that progress can be monitored
- Your dentist will always advise when to change to a new set of aligners at these appointments – most people change their aligners every two weeks!
- You will attend a final check-up to confirm you are 100% happy with your results
Comprehensive Invisalign vs Invisalign Express
Comprehensive is a treatment designed to address more complex orthodontic cases as patients keep using aligners until the desired results are achieved. Invisalign Express is used for less severe cases and comes with seven aligners.
Again, your dentist will always discuss with you the best option based on your bespoke needs.
