Invisalign® Clear Aligners

At Hamlett & La Mastra, D.M.D., we use clear Invisalign aligners to gently move your teeth into place. Invisalign aligners are smooth, custom-made plastic trays that you wear over your teeth. You can pop them out at mealtime and keep enjoying all your favorite foods. Then, every two weeks or so, you’ll get another set of aligners until your treatment plan is complete. Best of all, no one will know you’re wearing orthodontics until they notice the difference in your smile.

about Invisalign

When should you consider Invisalign Clear Aligners?

Invisalign treats a range of teeth straightening issues, ranging from minor tooth movements to more complex cases. Whatever the issue, the result is a new, more even smile that you will want everyone to see.

Here are some of the straightening issues that can be treated with Invisalign:

  • Overcrowded teeth occur when there is a lack of room within your jaw for all of your teeth to fit normally.
  • Widely spaced teeth occur when you have extra space within your jaw.
  • Crossbites occur when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned. It usually causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, and can happen on both the front and/or the sides of the mouth.
  • Deep bites occur when the upper teeth overlap significantly with the lower teeth.
  • Underbites occur when the lower teeth protrude past the front teeth, usually caused by undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or both.
What advantages does Invisalign offer over traditional braces and veneers?

While all three treatments are useful under different circumstances for perfecting teeth alignment, Invisalign® has a number of unique advantages over both traditional dental braces and dental veneers:

  • Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign trays are both nearly invisible and fully removable. While this makes them significantly better for the aesthetic appearance of your smile during treatment, they also require more discipline and commitment from the patient to ensure proper treatment. Used correctly, Invisalign can achieve results almost identical to those obtained by using traditional braces.
  • Veneers are thin ceramic covers designed to permanently affix to the existing dental structure. They are somewhat expensive, can sometimes break, and often last less than twenty years. In addition, the teeth must be etched to achieve a proper fitting, so the dentist has to place alternative coverings should the patient ever want the veneers removed. Invisalign® is preferable to veneers because it corrects the underlying structural problems in the dentition while avoiding damage to the integrity of the individual teeth.
What’s the procedure for the Invisalign treatment?
Initially, your dentist will take three-dimensional images of the entire jaw. These images are uploaded to a computer where the dentist can move teeth around, view the jaw from different angles, and project what the final results will look like, allowing you and your dentist to see how the Invisalign treatment will change your facial aesthetics. Through this process your dentist will devise an initial treatment plan.

From this plan a unique set of alignment trays is custom crafted for your teeth. The number of trays required varies, but 20-29 sets per arch over the course of the treatment is typical.
What do I need to consider before deciding on Invisalign?
For the first few weeks, the use of Invisalign will take some getting used to. Trays should be worn at all times except when eating or drinking because food can easily get trapped between the tray and the teeth, creating problems with tooth decay. Expect new trays every two weeks or so, and watch for progress between appointments as this can usually be seen with the naked eye.

Invisalign, known for being both comfortable and effective, has undoubtedly revolutionized orthodontics.

If you have questions about Invisalign®, please Dr. La Mastra.
