Invisalign: How to Straighten Teeth Without Braces

What is Invisalign?


Invisalign treatment is actually an orthodontic treatment, the only difference is that it has become possible to fix teeth without braces.


Can I determine how my teeth will be at the end of the treatment?


The patient and physician see how the teeth will be at the end of treatment by using three-dimensional models and then give their joint approval for production. Thus, you can make a special smile design with your dentist. At the end of the treatment, you will not encounter an unwanted result or surprise and you will not be disappointed.


How do teeth improve without braces?


Invisalign plaques are produced by correcting your teeth on the computer, extracting the shape you want from the 3D printer and pressing a flexible transparent plate on it. Each plaque is corrected 0.5 mm, and when you insert this corrected plaque on your teeth, the teeth are forced to enter this plaque and the teeth are moved so that the teeth move a little more with each plaque change.


Where and how are transparent plates produced?


After the measurements are taken with special silicones, these measurements are sent to centers abroad and virtual models are created in the computer with three-dimensional modeling method. On these models created in the computer, the desired movements are given to the teeth by computer simulation and the final state is determined on the computer according to the person's request.


How many weeks after the measurements are taken do the plaques arrive?


It takes about 5-6 weeks for the measurements to go abroad, to decide on the ideal treatment plan and the production phase.


Can I see the result of treatment with Invisalign?


Yes. With Invisalign, you not only see the result of the treatment, but you can also make planning and smile design with your doctor as you wish.


My teeth are very crowded, I wonder if they can fix my teeth? Is it done on every tooth?


Very crowded teeth do not mean that the treatment will not give results. It can be used for serious crowding problems, but there are a few specific tooth movements that Invisalign treatment cannot do. For this, examination by an experienced Orthodontist is absolutely necessary.


How many plaques should I wear? How many hours a day will I wear the plates?


The duration of treatment and the number of plaques to be used varies according to the degree that the teeth are crowded and the amount of movement desired. Each transparent plaque corrects the teeth by 0.25-0.5 mm and needs to be worn for 18-20 hours a day for 14 days. At the end of the second week, the teeth take the shape of the plaque and the second plaque with some more correction is applied and for 14 days the teeth take the shape of the new plaque. In this way, the teeth are corrected with a series of plaques.


What is the biggest advantage of Invisalign treatment?


Treatment with transparent plates is more comfortable than traditional braces. Since there is no wire or metal part in the mouth, there is no stinging or wound formation. Treatment is more painless than traditional braces. It does not have a negative effect on speech, there is no need to remove it in presentations, meetings.

Will I have pain in Invisalign treatment?


A force must be applied so the teeth can move. You will feel a pressure the first time you put on transparent plates. Your teeth will adapt to this pressure after a short time.


How often will my orthodontic checks be in my Invisalign treatment?


Your checks will be every 2-3 months. Transparent plates are changed every 15 days. For example, if 20 plates were produced for your treatment, your treatment will correspond to a period of 10 months. Follow up sessions are less than traditional treatment methods, thus creating a great advantage for patients coming from abroad.


How many hours a day do I have to wear the transparent plates?


You should wear the transparent plates for an average of 18 hours a day. It is recommended to remove it only while eating and in an important situation, with a maximum of 1-2 hours.


Is the treatment with normal braces or Invisalign shorter?


The most important feature of Invisalign treatment is that by giving more pressure, it does not slow down the movement of the teeth. When used correctly, it is possible to know the treatment end process clearly, but it is possible to see how the teeth will look in a given month in 3 dimensions. Invisalign treatment time can be comparatively shorter than normal orthodontic treatment.


Are Invisalign treatment fees expensive?


As with all other orthodontic treatments, the cost of treatment with transparent plates depends on the crowding and the difficulty of the treatment. Although Invisalign is not a very expensive method considering its comfort and convenience, it is more costly than fixed orthodontic treatments. But the price is close to traditional braces. Treatment prices are determined by the doctor who will treat you.


Do I need filling before my Invisalign treatment?


Yes. Before starting Invisalign treatment, all caries should be cleaned, dental calculus should be cleaned, and all oral care processes should be completed. Depending on the situation, your doctor may request extraction of your wisdom teeth before Invisalign treatment. After the measurement is taken, no action is applied in the mouth. Prosthetic procedures such as bridges and implants are performed after Invisalign treatment is completed.


Can Invisalign be inserted instead of a wire in orthognathic surgery patients before surgery?


Yes, orthognathic surgery simulation and teeth can be prepared for surgery with the help of Invisalign. Thus, in orthognathic maxillofacial surgery operations, it is possible to undergo surgery without inserting a wire, and postoperative intraoral problems and troubles are eliminated.


Is there Bisphenol-A used in plastic material manufacturing in Invisalign Aligners?


Invisalign Aligners do not contain Bisphenol-A or phthalates, which are used in baby bottles and plastic bottles and are banned by the USA and the European Union because they cause many health problems. Therefore, you can safely have Invisalign treatment in any period of your life, including pregnancy and lactation.


Are any protective procedures applied after my Invisalign plates are finished?


After your Invisalign treatment is finished (valid for all orthodontic treatments), very thin protective wires are attached to the inside of your teeth. This thin wire is definitely not visible from the outside. It is recommended to wear it for at least 2 years to avoid any deterioration in your teeth.


Who should do Invisalign planning? Can every dentist do it?


The most important part in this treatment is the planning section. Orthodontic treatment planning is a very special and different treatment compared to other dental treatments. Therefore, physicians performing this treatment must be experts. Orthodontics specialists are people who have graduated from a 4-year doctorate and specialty program offered at universities after 5 years of dentistry education. Although the desired result cannot be obtained with wrong planning, it may be necessary for the orthodontist to apply braces at the points where transparent plates cannot correct the problem.
