What is the step-by-step process of getting Invisalign?

Step 1: Consultation & Examination: Meet our specialist orthodontists who are certified providers of Invisalign in Dubai. During your initial consultation, impressions, X-rays, and photos of your teeth will be taken by your orthodontist.

Step 2: Planning: Your digital treatment plan will be mapped out to the exact movements of your teeth along with a 3D animated video (called a ClinCheck video) of the expected results of your treatment will be shown to you by your orthodontist. You and your orthodontist can either agree with the Invisalign treatment plan or have it revised.

Step 3: Receiving your Aligners: Your Invisalign aligners will be manufactured using the CAD/CAM technology and you will receive your set of invisible aligners in a couple of days.

Step 4: Treatment & Final Result: Your Invisalign treatment starts from the first day you wear your aligner. Make sure to also set orthodontic visits in our Dubai clinic to monitor your progress.

What are the bite problems that can be treated by Invisalign aligners?

  • Overbite – Your upper front teeth overlap with your lower front teeth.
  • Underbite – Your lower front teeth are in front of your upper teeth when you close your mouth.
  • Crossbite – Some of your upper teeth are sitting inside your lower teeth when you close your mouth.
  • Teeth Gap – You have extra space between two or more of your teeth.
  • Open Bite – Your upper and lower teeth don't touch when your mouth is closed.
  • Crowded Teeth – You do not have enough room in your jaw for your teeth to fit normally. Teeth can crowd together, overlap and twist, or sometimes get pushed to the front or the back.

For other cases that require more tooth control (e.g. impacted teeth), other orthodontic treatments are applied and Invisalign comes as a partial treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Virtually invisible – When you’re wearing Invisalign, nobody could tell that you’re wearing orthodontic treatments. Invisible aligners work best for some patients especially adults who feel awkward to get braces later in life.
  • Removable – Invisalign clear aligners are removable, which means you can eat, brush and floss with your bare teeth! Unlike braces where you have to avoid chewy or crunchy foods that can get in between the wires, there are no food restrictions or special toothbrushes needed with Invisalign.
  • Easy cleaning – You can also use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to clean the Invisalign aligner inside and out. When removing it during a meal, make sure you rinse it with warm water before putting it back into place. Brush and floss after every meal before wearing your invisible aligners.
  • Comfortable – Invisalign aligners are custom-made to your teeth structure and do not irritate your cheeks and gums like some braces do. Less frequent dental visits – Braces require frequent adjustments from your orthodontist whereas, with Invisalign, you simply need to stick with your treatment plan. Dental visits are only needed for monitoring your progress and other concerns.
  • Fast results – Invisalign aligners boast of evident results 2x faster than braces.

The length of your Invisalign treatment depends on the complexity of your bite condition. Your orthodontist will tell you exactly how long your treatment plan will take. Duration could be as short as 6 months but takes 12-18 months on average. The results of the Invisalign treatment, however, will start getting evident in a matter of weeks after wearing your aligners.

Your orthodontist will begin by examining your bite and recommend some initial dental procedures (cleaning, extraction, etc.) if needed to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy for Invisalign treatment. Information about your teeth will also be taken such as impressions, X-rays, and photos which will be sent to our partner Invisalign center. The whole plan and estimated cost of your treatment will also be discussed.
 

You need to wear each Invisalign clear aligner for 20-22 hours for 2 weeks before shifting to the next one for best results (may vary according to treatment plan). You can only take off your Invisalign when eating, brushing or flossing. You can drink water while your aligners are on but need to remove them when drinking colored beverages.

No. These invisible aligners are perfectly designed to fit your current teeth structure, Invisalign will not impede or affect your speech.

Dental appointments with your orthodontist in Dubai will be arranged according to your Invisalign treatment plan. These are necessary to check if additional attachments should be put in place, if there are other procedures needed to be done, and if further coordination is needed with the partner Invisalign center. Going for an orthodontic visit to our Dubai clinic every 6-8 weeks is recommended.

After your Invisalign treatment, you need to wear removable Vivera retainers at night to keep the new teeth position in place. Invisalign provides 3 sets of these retainers while your orthodontist can give you a set of fixed retainers for both arches.

Yes, you can have braces removed by your orthodontist and start with the treatment process anew with Invisalign aligners.

It is possible. Your Invisalign treatment plan can be customized to either close the gap or keep the space ready for future prosthodontic treatments like bridges or implants. You can even have your Invisalign aligners customized with a tooth-colored coating (the rest will still be invisible) to cover up the space for the missing tooth!

The cost of Invisalign treatment differs on a case-by-case basis, depending on the case complexity; cases that require fewer aligners and adjustments cost much lesser than a much-complicated case. At Micris Dental Clinic, we provide flexible payment options broken down in installments until the end of your Invisalign treatment plan.
