What is Invisalign?

Learn about Invisalign with Lenny Slepchik, D D S, a Preferred Provider

Are you too embarrassed to smile? Does the way your teeth meet bother you? Dr. Slepchik offers Invisalign treatment in downtown Montreal so that his patients can straighten their teeth without anyone knowing you are wearing braces. You can enjoy discreet treatment that results in a beautiful smile.


How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign Downtown Montreal

Invisalign targets alignment issues (how your teeth meet) such as crowded, tilted or rotated teeth, and the gaps between them. The clear aligners fit your teeth at each stage and gradually move them to arrive at your ultimate goal. These removable aligners are made from a comfortable plastic and are worn for 1 week at a time. In fact, this can create a straighter smile in less than a year. We also recommend Invisalign treatment to make flossing and brushing easier.

Straightening teeth can not only improve the look of your smile but also improve your overall dental health. By eliminating hard to reach spaces in your mouth, periodontal disease and cavities can be reduced. Patients that have an interest in Invisalign will have both digital x-rays and digital impressions taken in our office. After Dr. Slepchik takes the impressions, we send this diagnostic information to the Invisalign lab. Their lab will then send virtual time-lapse images of your smile, which helps you visualize how the treatment will work.


Who is a candidate for Invisalign?

Many teens and adults are good candidates for Invisalign. The advanced techniques that are now available with this protocol make Invisalign appropriate for mild to moderate misalignment, including the correction of over-bite, under-bite, and cross-bite. Patients should be in good oral health and be free of gum disease before beginning Invisalign treatment. If dental problems exist, we will provide treatment to improve oral health before commencing with teeth-straightening.


Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces

Invisalign has become a preferred method of teeth-straightening because, unlike traditional braces, there are no fixtures that are permanently attached to the teeth. The two protocols work in a similar manner. Each applies consistent pressure on teeth to first loosen the hold of the periodontal ligament; simultaneously, the pressure exerted on the teeth is done  in a way that forces them into better alignment. The protocols differ in the extent of malocclusion each can correct and in the method through which teeth are straightened. Severe malocclusion may need to be treated with traditional orthodontic treatment.

 The clear plastic aligners that are custom-made for you in every step of the teeth-straightening process provide the following benefits;

:

 

  • Removable:     You can take your aligners out when you eat and when you brush and floss. No problem !
  • Easy to clean: To keep them fresh, rinse them with warm water.
  • Comfortable:   The aligners are made from smooth plastic and contain no sharp edges. You will always feel comfortable while wearing                              them.

What Is the Invisalign Treatment Process?Dr. Slepchick

If you are interested in Invisalign, there are multiple steps which are part of your Invisalign treatment. When you come for your first appointment, we  take a series of  photos of your teeth and provide you a simulation of the possible result. Next, Dr. Slepchik will design your treatment plan .  Once this is accepted, the attachments will be placed on your teeth with your first set of aligners. Your will be visiting us every 2-3 months in which we will provide you with newly adjusted aligners at each stage of dental treatment.

The Invisalign process is explained in further detail below and will be discussed with you during your consultation appointment.


Appointment 1: Records

Using the Itero Impression System, we take digital photos of the teeth to create extremely accurate models which evaluate your mouth’s orthodontic situation. Our system also provides an immediate simulation of the possible result. It’s easy and comfortable. This appointment is about one hour long.


Appointment 2: Case Presentation

Based on his experience with the Invisalign system, Dr. Slepchik provides different prescriptions to create the most effective treatment plan for you. Dr. Slepchik will show and explain the chosen treatment to the patient. At this point, we also explain the number of appointments necessary and all fees.

Our Invisalign treatment includes your aligners, up to 2 refinement series and 4 sets of retainers and a wire retainer (if necessary). There are no additional costs. Upon patient acceptance and an initial deposit, we will order your aligners.


Appointment 3: Attachments & Aligners

During the third appointment,  the attachments are placed  on your teeth. They are the same colour as your teeth and are practically invisible. This appointment lasts about an hour long and requires no freezing. You are completely comfortable.   You will receive your first set of aligners and be shown how to put them on and and take them off.

Appointment 4 (and on):

Every 2-3 months, we give you your new aligners and check your progress.  When your treatment is finished, we analyze the final result and decide together if further treatment would enhance what was achieved. If yes, a refinement is done using additional aligners. When we complete the case, we order your retainers. Sometimes, we place a thin wire retainer on the tongue side of the lower front teeth where necessary.


What Can I Expect After My Invisalign Treatment?

Invisalign | Dr. Slepchick

Because Invisalign is a discreet method of treatment, patients get to see their progress every step of the way. This means there are no major surprises at the conclusion of treatment. The follow-up to your treatment is the use of a retainer. Initially, the retainer is necessary 24/7. After a period of time, you may only need to wear it only at nighttime .  Wearing a retainer at night may continue for several years to prevent shifting of teeth.

Taking care of my aligners

Invisalign aligners are very easy to maintain. When you remove them to brush your teeth, simply run lukewarm water over all surfaces of the aligner. No need to brush them; doing so could cause tiny scratches that harbor bacteria and odor.

How long will I need Invisalign?

Depending on the extent of correction you need, your treatment may be complete in 9 to 18 months. After your teeth are properly aligned, you will need to wear a retainer for two or more years.

Invisalign Cost

The cost of treatment is determined by the number of aligners you will need to achieve the desired outcome. During our consultation, we can discuss the extent of care you need and what the treatment costs. If your dental insurance offers benefits for orthodontic care, this should include Invisalign..
