Is Invisalign a Good Option?

Get your smile back in no time.

If you have been avoiding braces because you felt they were not the right choice for you, it’s time to talk about Invisalign.

Invisalign is a teeth alignment system using clear aligners. It allows you to achieve that perfect smile comfortably and quickly. On this post, we’ll help you decide whether starting an Invisalign treatment is the best option for you.

How does it work?

Unlike braces, Invisalign does not use brackets and wires to shift teeth, but clear plastic alignment trays. Each tray works to position your teeth into its ideal position. Patients are usually made to wear these trays for two weeks, then a new set of trays will be put in place for the next set of changes. You will be expected to visit the dentist every six to eight weeks for check-ups, with the treatments usually completed in a year.

Invisalign is one of our fortes, if you’re contemplating on getting fitted for these invisible braces in Dubai, have a look of some of its benefits.

What are the advantages?

While some patients still choose to go the ‘braces route’, Invisalign is becoming a popular choice for the following reasons:

  • Comfort: without the wires and brackets that irritate the soft tissue, Invisalign’s smooth trays offer better comfort for the patient.
  • Safety: the plastic trays offer a better experience to patients with metal allergies and sensitive gums.
  • Speed: compared to braces, Invisalign treatments allow patients fewer visits and an overall reduced treatment time to your dream smile.
  • Hassle-free: you won’t need to change your diet or oral hygiene routines to accommodate your treatment. Simply remove your aligners, enjoy your favorite food, brush and floss your teeth as usual, and pop them back in place to continue treatment.

Invisalign: How To Clean Your Trays?

Invisalign: How To Clean Your Trays?

How to care for your Invisalign Aligners?

If you have decided to start your Invisalign treatment you’re probably wondering how to take care of your new clear braces. 

Invisalign trays need to be cleaned gently with water and a very soft toothbrush to avoid scratching them. Your aligners are more fragile than you natural teeth and need to be taken care of gently.

In this blog, we’ll show you some oi the best practices to keep your trays clean and sanitized.

 

Brush your teeth and your aligners

It’s best to brush your aligners, whenever you brush your teeth. That means that you’ll be brushing them at least twice a day. For the best results, we recommend having a separate toothbrush for your Invisalign trays. It’s also best to use cold water instead of hot water, as it may warp the plastic of the aligners. Be sure to brush the entire tray inside and out, making sure to rinse it out completely.

 

Do not use toothpaste to clean your Invisalign Trays 

Tooth paste can be abrasive and will scratch your aligners overtime rendering them opaque. Instead you can use cold water, a very soft tooth brush and some clear liquid soap.

For a complete solution you can purchase the Invisalign cleaning system right here:

Store them properly

When removing your Invisalign alignment trays for any reason, be sure to store them carefully in their storage case. If you do not have a case in hand, the second-best alternative is to place them in a glass of cold or room temperature water.

To keep potential smell away, and improve the freshness of your aligners, store them in diluted antimicrobial mouthwash while you eat. This helps reduce the buildup of plaque and will help improve your breath.

 

Brush your aligners after every meal

Although you should brush your alignment trays twice a day, the best way to avoid discoloration and smells is to brush them between meals. If you don’t have the time to brush them after each meal, then you can take them out and rinse your mouth thoroughly, cleaning your aligners with cool water.

If you notice your Invisalign aligners are damaged, kindly call us immediately. Do not wear your damaged trays as this will have an adverse effect to your treatment.

Invisalign, Live a Normal Lifestyle!

Invisalign, will it affect your lifestyle?

The simple answer is that Invisalign won’t deeply affect your lifestyle. Invisalign aligners are practically invisible, to allow you to carry on with your day-to-day with confidence. Gone are the days of regular orthodontic braces where you feel self-conscious to smile and reveal the metal wires and brackets.

 

How does Invisalign work?

In order to achieve the perfect smile, we recommended that you wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day. This will ensure optimum results. With Invisalign, you will enjoy all of your favorite foods and drinks by simply removing your aligners. Invisalign is easy to live with contrarily to traditional braces which can force you to eat only specific foods. You can remove your aligners and store them in their case before eating. As well. brush your teeth morning and night, clean, rinse and return your aligners after that.

 

Are Invisalign aligners difficult to maintain and clean?

Many patients with regular braces find it difficult to reach in between teeth and gums because the wires and brackets are in the way when brushing and flossing. With Invisalign you can live brush and floss normally, as you will simply remove the aligners to do so. Simply brush and and rinse them in lukewarm water to keep them clean and free from food particles.

Invisalign Treatment: The Facts

Invisalign Treatment: The Facts

Invisalign Treatment, here are the Facts.

Have you considered braces or other types of teeth alignment services? At Versailles Dental Clinic, our team offers Invisalign Aligners – A revolutionary dental technology for straightening your teeth. The Invisalign treatment is a popular choice, as it is hardly noticeable unlike braces.

There are many common questions about Invisalign, such as: Is the treatment painless? Will the treatment offer me the perfect smile? Can I eat whilst I wear my Invisalign? 

 

The Invisalign Treatment is painless

The Invisalign treatment is virtually painless and more comfortable than regular orthodontic braces. At the most, discomfort may occur for the first few days or when you switch your tray to the next phase, this is the pressure of your teeth adjusting to the new tray. Invisalign aligners have been designed to ensure your treatment is as painless as possible!

 

You can remove your aligners

Invisalign aligners can be removed when brushing and flossing. However, the biggest advantage is that you can also remove them during mealtime, allowing you to eat and drink whatever you like, without the worry of damaging your aligners.

 

22 hours a day

If you want to achieve optimal results, you have to wear the aligners up to 22 hours a day. The aligners will control the way teeth shift. Each tray will shift certain teeth, the shift is mapped out in your personal treatment plan as determined by our expert team to reach the straight teeth you desire.

 

They’re completely transparent

Invisalign aligners are transparent to ensure that they are not noticeable, unlike metal wires or brackets. It’s simply a thin cover over your teeth, which resembles your original teeth.

 

You do need to take proper care

Maintain a good oral hygiene at home or else you may expose your teeth to cavities and decay. Use warm water and anti-bacterial soap to clean your Invisalign aligners regularly. This is to prevent the buildup of bacteria which can be harmful to the clear aligners.

 

 You have to wear a retainer

After your Invisalign Treatment you will wear retainers for a few months after completion of the treatment. As you naturally bite and chew the teeth, there is a possibility that they could move. Retainers will help avoid that and ensure the shifted teeth stay firmly in place and do not move around again.

Invisalign in Dubai, is available from Versailles Dental Clinic Dubai, we’ve treated more than 20,000 patients with clear Aligners.

What Is The Right Age For Kids To Get Braces?

December 28, 2017

What Is The Right Age For Kids To Get Braces?

As a parent, you must wear many hats and know what is best for your child in every aspect of their life.

It is not easy for a parent to know when to start Orthodontic treatment for their children. There is a lot of information out there to navigate and understand.

As a parent, you might be confused because even if your child’s teeth look aligned in the front, the malocclusion may lay in the back teeth, something that is difficult to see with an untrained eye.

Dr. Firas Haj Ibrahim, our specialist orthodontist, advises:

It is a good idea to get an orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7-8 years old. By that age children have enough permanent teeth that allow me to diagnose if there might be future problems. Early detection of potential orthodontic issues is key since in many cases the early diagnosis and prevention makes future treatment easier for the patient and the doctor.

If I detect a future problem, the age of the actual treatment can widely vary depending on each individual case.

For some rare cases, I might use the interceptive approach, which involves using dental appliances (not braces) at an early age. This will be the first phase of the treatment. Once the child has all adult teeth out, I will continue with the second phase (braces) if needed. The benefit of the first phase is big, usually, the second, braces phase, will be shorter and lighter treatment.

For most cases, I will start the treatment once all adult teeth erupt. Depending on each individual case the age might vary.

What is important to remember:

  • Early detection is key, book the first consultation around ages 7-8.
  • If necessary, return every 6 months for follow-up appointments to monitor the situation.
  • An orthodontic consultation is different from a dental consultation, make sure to follow-up your child dental care with your regular dentist.
  • Untreated orthodontic issues might contribute to tooth decay, gum diseases, tempo mandibular problems and loss of teeth.
  • Crooked teeth can also affect a child and teen self-confidence.
  • If left untreated, orthodontic problems do not go away, unfortunately, down the road, they will be more complicated and costly.

The bright line is:

  • With early detection, the treatment will be done safely in shortest terms possible.
  • Even if the treatment can be lengthy, you will give your child a smile for life.
  • The greatest reward for a parent is a healthy smile of their child.

You can book a free, 15 minutes orthodontic assessment for your child with Dr. Firas.

6 Reasons Why Invisalign Is Better Than You Thought

December 26, 2017

6 Reasons Why Invisalign Is Better Than You Thought

There is a lot of hype these days about Invisalign as well as many misconceptions. Invisalign IS an efficient orthodontic treatment for adults and kids that solves most of the orthodontic problems. Invisalign is NOT a purely cosmetic treatment.

As the technology progresses, so does Invisalign treatment. Here are 5 reasons why Invisalign is better than you think compared to braces:

  1. Increased comfort

    Patients using wired braces have more discomfort and pain. With Invisalign the only time you might feel discomfort is when you start wearing a new set of aligners, every 2 weeks. The pressure on your teeth is of a very low degree.

    Invisalign aligners are removable and you have the freedom to continue eating a normal, balanced diet. You can also remove the aligners for an important evening out.

  2. Discrete

    Invisalign are almost invisible and it looks as though you are not wearing braces at all. If you feel anxious to wear a “train track” to work especially if you are an adult, then Invisalign is the perfect solution for you.

  3. Fast treatment

    Invisalign treatments are generally faster than traditional braces. What is more fascinating is that since the treatment is designed by a special software, you can see how your teeth will look like at the end of the treatment. As a patient, you can even add modifications to the outcome before your treatment had started.

    One more thing: using an Acceledent device, you can half the duration of your Invisalign treatment. The soft pulse technology helps your teeth move safely faster, for example, a treatment of 12 months can be reduced to 6 months.

  4. Reduced restrictions

    One of the biggest downsides to traditional braces are the required bi-monthly visits to the dentist. In our fast-paced world, where people’s lifestyles are directly related to travel, committing to monthly or bi-monthly visits for 1-2 years is virtually impossible.

    With Invisalign, you have the freedom to travel extensively and plan your dentists’ visits according to your schedule.

  5. Hygienic and safe

    Oral health is significantly improved with the use of Invisalign aligners, which can be easily removed for cleaning. You will also tend to consume more water as it is the only liquid you can drink while wearing the aligner. Less sugary drinks – healthier teeth.

  6. Get those few pounds off!

    Along with your Invisalign treatment, you can plan a diet as well. As you must remove the aligners for every meal, snaking is naturally reduced. Combine 2 in one, Invisalign treatment and a lite diet, the result will be amazing.
