Most frequent questions and answers
What are the advantages of Invisalign over metal braces?
Invisalign offers a virtually invisible solution for those who want to straighten their teeth. The clear aligners are great for adults who may feel self-conscious about wearing braces.
Invisalign aligners are removable, so there are no food restrictions or special toothbrushes needed. You can brush and floss your teeth normally, and easily clean your aligners with a soft-bristled toothbrush.
The aligners are custom-made for your teeth and are designed to be comfortable, without causing irritation to your cheeks and gums. Dental visits are only needed for monitoring your progress and other concerns, and Invisalign can help you achieve your desired smile in a short period of time.
How long does the Invisalign treatment take?
The duration of your Invisalign treatment depends on the complexity of your bite condition, which can vary. Your orthodontist can tell you how long your treatment plan will take, which can range from as little as 6 months to an average of 12-18 months. However, you can start seeing the results of the Invisalign treatment within weeks after wearing your aligners.
What should I expect on my initial Invisalign consultation?
To ensure the success of your Invisalign treatment, your orthodontist will evaluate your teeth and gums’ condition and recommend any necessary initial dental procedures, such as cleaning or extraction. They will also take impressions, X-rays, and photos of your teeth, which will be shared with our partner Invisalign center. During this visit, your orthodontist will discuss the treatment plan and cost estimate with you.
How often should the Invisalign aligners be worn?
To achieve the best results, you need to wear each set of Invisalign aligners for 20-22 hours per day, which usually lasts for two weeks (may vary according to the treatment plan) before switching to the next set. You can remove your Invisalign aligners when you eat, brush, or floss. While you can drink water while wearing your aligners, you need to remove them when drinking colored beverages.
Will Invisalign aligners affect my speech?
No, Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly, and they won’t affect your speech in any way.
What are the bite problems that can be treated by Invisalign aligners?
These are some common bite and alignment issues that Invisalign can help correct:
- 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.
How often should dental visits be for Invisalign users?
To ensure the success of your Invisalign treatment, dental appointments with your orthodontist will be scheduled in accordance with your treatment plan. These appointments are essential to determine if additional attachments are required, whether other procedures are necessary, and if further coordination is needed.
Do I need retainers after the treatment?
To maintain the new position of your teeth after Invisalign treatment, you will be advised to wear retainers either during night time or with fixed retainers. These retainers will help keep your teeth in the proper alignment achieved from the treatment.
Can I replace my braces with Invisalign?
If you are a good candidate for Invisalign, you can switch from braces to Invisalign. Your orthodontist can remove your braces and start you on the process of using new Invisalign aligners.
Can I get Invisalign treatment with missing tooth/teeth?
Yes, it is possible. Your Invisalign treatment can be personalized to either close the gap or prepare the space for future prosthodontic treatments, such as bridges or implants. You can even opt to have your Invisalign aligners coated with a tooth-colored material, which will conceal the space left by the missing tooth, while the rest of the aligner remains invisible.
What is the cost of Invisalign in Dubai?
The cost of Invisalign treatment in Dubai varies depending on the complexity of your case. The more complicated your case, the more aligners and adjustments you may need, and thus the higher the cost. However, at Micris Dental Clinic, we offer flexible payment options that can be divided into installments until the end of your Invisalign treatment plan.
