What is Invisalign?

Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective.

You wear each set of aligners for about 1-2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to the final position your orthodontist has prescribed. You’ll visit us about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

The Benefits Of Invisalign

When it comes to orthodontic treatment, Invisalign offers a variety of distinct advantages that set it apart from traditional braces:

  1. Invisible Treatment — With Invisalign, you won’t have to hide your smile during your orthodontic treatment. The aligners are virtually invisible, so most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them.
  2. Comfortable Wear — Invisalign aligners are made from smooth plastic, making them incredibly comfortable to wear. With no wires or brackets to irritate your mouth, you’ll find the treatment process much more comfortable.
  3. Flexible Lifestyle — Love popcorn or apples? No problem! Since the aligners are removable, you can continue to enjoy all your favorite foods without the risk of damaging your orthodontic appliance.
  4. Easy Oral Care — Maintaining oral hygiene is a breeze with Invisalign. Simply remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would.
  5. Predictable Results — With Invisalign, you can see a digital representation of your treatment plan from start to finish, allowing you to visualize the end result before you even start your treatment.
  6. Time-Efficient — Invisalign often requires fewer office visits than traditional braces, as there are no wires to tighten. Moreover, the average treatment time is often shorter with Invisalign.

Remember, choosing the right provider is key to achieving optimal results with Invisalign. As a Diamond Plus Invisalign Provider, we have the experience and expertise to guide you through your smile transformation journey with confidence.

Invisalign For Kids

As a parent, you want the best for your child — including their oral health. And when it comes to maintaining a healthy smile, proper alignment is crucial. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children have their first orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7. This may come as a surprise to many parents, as they often associate orthodontic treatment with teenagers and adults. However, the earlier your child sees an orthodontist, the better their chances are for a successful treatment outcome.

At the age of 7, most children have a mix of baby teeth and permanent teeth. This makes it easier for orthodontists to identify any potential issues with tooth and jaw alignment. By catching these problems early on, they can be corrected or monitored as your child’s mouth continues to develop. This can potentially prevent more extensive and costly treatments in the future.

Additionally, starting treatment at a younger age allows for optimal growth modification. As children grow, their jaws are still developing and are more malleable. By utilizing orthodontic appliances, such as Invisalign aligners, at this stage, we can guide the growth of the jaw to create a better bite and alignment for your child’s teeth.

Introducing Invisalign First

Invisalign has become a popular choice for adult orthodontic treatment due to its discreet appearance and ease of use. However, many parents may not realize that Invisalign also offers an option specifically designed for children — Invisalign First.

Invisalign First is a series of clear aligners that are custom-made for your child’s mouth. They work in the same way as traditional braces, gradually shifting teeth into their correct positions over time. However, they offer the added benefit of being nearly invisible, making them a perfect option for self-conscious kids.

While Invisalign First is suitable for many children, it may not be the best option for all cases. The severity of your child’s orthodontic issues will ultimately determine if they are a candidate for Invisalign aligners. It’s important to consult with one of our orthodontists to determine the best course of treatment for your child. With Invisalign First, your child can look forward to a straight and beautiful smile in the future. So don’t wait — request that first orthodontic consultation for your child today!

Invisalign For Teens

As a teenager, having crooked teeth or misaligned bites can be more than just an aesthetic concern. It can affect your self-esteem, confidence, and even your overall oral health. That’s why it’s important to address these issues early on, and thanks to Invisalign Teen, getting a beautiful smile has never been easier.

Invisalign Teen is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment designed specifically for teenagers. Unlike traditional metal braces, it uses clear aligners that are virtually invisible and removable. This means you can straighten your teeth without anyone noticing and still enjoy your favorite foods without worrying about food getting stuck in your braces.

What Makes Invisalign Teen Unique

Aside from its discreet appearance, Invisalign Teen also offers other benefits that make it the perfect choice for teenage patients. Here are some of them:

  • Customized For Growing Teeth — Invisalign Teen aligners are designed to accommodate growing teeth and jaws, making them a more comfortable and effective treatment option for teenagers.
  • Active Aligner Indicator — Invisalign Teen aligners come with a blue indicator that fades over time to show whether the aligners have been worn for the recommended 22 hours per day. This helps parents and orthodontists monitor compliance and ensure the treatment is on track.
  • No Food Restrictions — Unlike traditional braces, there are no food restrictions with Invisalign Teen. You can eat whatever you want, as long as you remove your aligners before meals and brush your teeth before putting them back in.

Life With Invisalign

Living with Invisalign is easy and hassle-free. Here are some tips to help you take care of your aligners and achieve the best results:

  • Keep Them Clean — It’s important to clean your aligners regularly with a soft toothbrush and mild soap. This prevents bacteria buildup and keeps your aligners looking clear and fresh.
  • Wear Them For At Least 22 Hours Per Day — For Invisalign Teen to work effectively, you need to wear your aligners for a minimum of 22 hours per day. This may seem like a lot, but remember, the more you wear your aligners, the quicker and better your results will be.
  • Never Leave Them Out In The Open — When not wearing your aligners, always keep them in their case to avoid losing or damaging them. Leaving them out in the open can also expose them to bacteria and germs.

With Invisalign Teen, not only will you achieve a straighter and healthier smile, but you’ll also gain more confidence and self-esteem. Plus, the treatment is relatively shorter compared to traditional braces, with an average time of 12-18 months. So don’t let misaligned teeth hold you back from living your best teenage years — choose Invisalign Teen and experience the difference for yourself!

Invisalign For Adults

When it comes to orthodontic treatment, many people assume that it’s only for children and teenagers. However, the truth is that orthodontic treatment can benefit adults just as much, if not more. At Otto Orthodontics, we offer Invisalign as an option for adults looking to achieve a perfect smile.

Adult Orthodontic Treatment

One of the biggest myths surrounding orthodontic treatment is that it can only be done during childhood or teenage years. This is simply not true. In fact, more and more adults are seeking orthodontic treatment to improve their dental health and enhance their appearance.

One of the main reasons why it’s never too late to get Invisalign as an adult is because our teeth continue to move and shift throughout our lives. This means that even if you had braces as a child or teenager, your teeth may have shifted over time and could benefit from further treatment. Invisalign can help correct these issues and give you the straight, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.

Additionally, with advancements in technology and techniques, adult orthodontic treatment has become more discreet and comfortable than ever before. This means that you no longer have to worry about the stigma of wearing metal braces as an adult, and instead can straighten your teeth with confidence.

There are many benefits to getting Invisalign as an adult, including:

  • Improved Dental Health — Crooked or misaligned teeth can lead to a range of dental problems, such as tooth decay, gum disease, and jaw pain. By straightening your teeth with Invisalign, you can improve your overall dental health and prevent future issues.
  • Enhanced Appearance — Let’s face it, having a straight smile can greatly enhance your appearance and boost your confidence. As an adult, this can be especially important in both personal and professional settings.
  • Comfort And Convenience — Invisalign aligners are made of smooth plastic that won’t irritate your mouth like traditional braces. Plus, they are removable, making it easier to eat, drink, and clean your teeth without any restrictions.
  • Shorter Treatment Time — In some cases, adult orthodontic treatment with Invisalign can be completed in a shorter amount of time compared to traditional braces. This means you can achieve your perfect smile faster!

Why Adults Love Invisalign

Invisalign is a popular choice among adults for many reasons. First and foremost, the aligners are virtually invisible, making it a discreet option for those who may be self-conscious about their appearance during treatment. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces and do not require frequent visits to the orthodontist for adjustments.

Another reason why adults love Invisalign is because of its flexibility. The aligners can easily be removed for special occasions or important events, unlike traditional braces which are always in place. This allows for a more convenient and hassle-free treatment experience.

Additionally, with Invisalign, you will receive a series of custom-made aligners that gradually move your teeth into the desired position. This means there are no wires or brackets that need to be tightened, making the treatment process more comfortable and less disruptive to your daily life.

At Otto Orthodontics, we understand that adults have busy lives and unique orthodontic needs. That’s why we offer Invisalign as an option for adult patients, providing a discreet and convenient way to achieve a perfect smile. Don’t let age hold you back from getting the smile you’ve always wanted — it’s never too late to transform your teeth with Invisalign. Contact us today to request a consultation and take the first step towards a healthier, happier smile!

Invisalign For Senior Adults

Invisalign is a series of clear, removable, BPA-free plastic trays that you fit over your teeth. The trays are custom-designed using state-of-the-art, digital technology. You can even get a preview of what your tooth movements will look like from start to finish before your treatment begins!

Invisalign moves teeth incrementally into their optimal positions — which means less discomfort than braces. A slow and steady push force moves your teeth to align with each set of clear aligners before you move on to the next set. Typical treatment plans include 18-30 sets of aligners and last about 1-2 years, though it’s worth mentioning that treatment sometimes takes longer for seniors or if you don’t follow your plan to a “T”. You wear your Invisalign aligners for 22 hours a day, only taking them out when you eat, drink anything other than water, and when you clean your teeth.

We’ve found that many of our adult patients choose Invisalign over braces because clear aligners are more discreet and work well for busy lifestyles. With Invisalign, you don’t look like you’re doing orthodontic treatment, and you don’t have to change your eating and drinking habits to avoid damaging your appliance, as you do with braces.

Understandably, Invisalign for seniors can seem a bit more complicated than Invisalign for younger patients, since dental work like crowns or bridges is more common in older adults. So can you get Invisalign with crowns or other dental work? The good news is that, yes, you can get Invisalign with crowns, implants, or other types of cosmetic or restorative dental work. You can even get Invisalign if you’re missing some teeth or have large gaps.

Depending on the complexity of your case, our team might recommend Invisalign attachments or rubber bands for your treatment. These additions help fix more serious orthodontic issues like twisted or leaning teeth, or jaw alignment that’s impacting chew and bite functioning.

Benefits of Treatment As A Senior Adult

Straightening your smile may seem purely cosmetic, but your smile is a gateway to the health of your entire body. Some of the benefits of straight teeth include:

  • Enhanced Chewing Efficiency — If you’ve been struggling with chewing as you’ve gotten older, it could be due to misaligned teeth. Aligning your bite can restore proper dental function, allowing you to enjoy your meals without frustration.
  • Improved Oral Hygiene — Crooked teeth pose a challenge when it comes to maintaining oral hygiene. Proper brushing and flossing become more time-consuming. Neglecting oral care increases the risk of tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, and even tooth loss.
  • Preserving Tooth Health — As we age, our bites tend to deepen, leading to tooth wear. Enamel does not regenerate, which may necessitate procedures such as veneers or crowns to restore both the length and functionality of your teeth.
  • Preventing Future Problems — Minor dental issues in adulthood can worsen over time. By addressing these concerns with adult orthodontics, you can prevent more complex problems in your senior years.

At Otto Orthodontics, we are committed to helping seniors like you achieve optimal oral health and a confident smile. Contact us today to learn more about our personalized orthodontic solutions.
