What is Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign treatment offers an alternative treatment to typical braces. It allows you to adjust misaligned teeth without the worry of maintaining regular and non-removable braces.

What are the advantages of Invisalign over traditional methods?

Invisalign has several benefits over traditional methods:

  • Invisalign braces are invisible, so you can flaunt your smile without even letting anyone else notice the braces.
  • They are removable so it doesn’t interrupt normal oral hygiene routines.
  • Invisalign doesn’t put any restrictions on food habits so you are free to eat what you want.
  • The treatment duration is shorter compared to traditional braces although the traditional braces are preferred for complex teeth misalignment conditions.

Describe the process of Invisalign treatment?

Firstly schedule your complimentary consultation with our Invisalign dentists, who will then customize the treatment type to be done according to your smile and requirement. Then the aligners are created accordingly. An individual has to wear an aligner for 20-22 hours a day. Patients are required to change the set of aligners periodically which can vary from two to four weeks.

What is the cost of Invisalign treatment?

The cost is more or less similar to that of traditional braces. The cost may vary based on complexity and length of treatment. Longer the treatment, the more set of aligners you need to reach the end of treatment. Our treatment coordinators at Accu Dental can give you a no obligation quote along with the complimentary Invisalign consultation with our Invisalign dentist.

Is the treatment painful?

Some patients may experience minor discomfort for a few days at the beginning of every new stage of the treatment when they place a new set of aligners. The discomfort is completely normal because the aligner is applying pressure on various teeth to push them in a certain direction of alignment. This is a sign that the aligners are working.

Will my speech be interfered if I am wearing Invisalign braces?

As every orthodontic treatment takes some time to adjust in your mouth, Invisalign also takes a few days to adjust to your mouth. Many patients share their experience that they notice no changes while they speak. However, some may find a little difficulty for the first few days. As soon as you acclimate to your aligners, you will return to your normal speech once again.

How do I maintain my aligners?

It is effortless and easy to maintain your aligners. Just like you brush your teeth, brush your aligners with a toothbrush and toothpaste and rinse them well with luke-warm water. At Accu Dental, our dental experts will provide tips to take good care of your aligners.

What does dental implant treatment consist of?

Dental implants offer a replacement for missing teeth. They are not actually teeth but a prosthesis used in replacing missing teeth, which are small titanium posts inserted into the jawbone. On top of that, a crown, fixed bridge, partial denture, and full denture can be attached. It takes a few weeks to few months for the implants to integrate with your bones. After the implant integrates solidly with the bone, an abutment is attached to the implant to provide the proper transfer of forces to the implant and for alignment with the rest of the teeth.. Finally, a crown is screwed on to the abutment.

Am I the right candidate for dental implants?

Anyone who is missing a tooth or multiple teeth can get dental implants. An ideal candidate must exhibit good oral health and have enough bone structure to accommodate implants. Schedule a complimentary consultation with our dental implant expert doctors at Accu Dental to learn whether you are a good candidate for dental implants.

How can I benefit from dental implants?

Dental implants can replace teeth lost to decay, gum disease, or accidents. They can potentially last for a lifetime and improve appearance, confidence, and the capability to eat your favorite foods and continue your active lifestyle without the need for a removable attachment or a dental bridge. Implants are made of titanium metal and won’t decay or rust with time.
