What is Invisalign?

Invisalign uses a customized set of clear aligners to reposition the teeth according to a plan created using digital impressions and CAD/CAM software. We use iTero® 3D digital teeth scanning. The iTero digital scanning system eliminates the need for messy putty in your mouth by creating a 3D digital scan of your teeth. It offers a fast and more comfortable experience and it’s more accurate, resulting in a more precise fit from your Invisalign aligners.

The combination of advanced technology enables Dr. Ayzin to work with you to create more predictable and accurate results that will straighten teeth and improve overall dental health. Patients will change their aligners about every two weeks to maintain progress.


Am I a candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign can successfully treat a wide range of orthodontic and bite-related problems including Gap Teeth, Open Bite, Underbite crossbite, overbite, and overcrowding of teeth. The first step is to schedule a consultation during which we will thoroughly evaluate the condition and function of your smile before making the appropriate treatment recommendations. Invisalign is available for children and adults and Dr. Ayzin takes the time to ensure that it is the best solution for your needs. For more complex problems or structural concerns, especially in children we also offer traditional metal braces and oral appliances as needed.

Adults are often good candidates for Invisalign, especially is you are experiencing orthodontic relapse after prior treatment with braces at a younger age.


What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign can offer patients several key benefits when compared to metal braces, including:


  • Discreet orthodontic treatment means that no one has to know you are wearing braces.
  • Removable aligners make it easy to maintain a healthy oral hygiene routine.
  • No dietary restrictions- aligners can be temporarily removed when eating.
  • Shorter treatment times with the average being about a year.
  • Comfortable orthodontic treatment- the clear aligners are made of a hard-soft plastic that does not irritate the gums or soft tissues.


How long does Invisalign take?

The length of an Invisalign treatment will depend on your oral health condition. On average, the treatment can last from 12 to 18 months. Complex cases can take more than two years, while simple issues can last for a year. A more complicated problem may need the use of Attachments to assist with the alignment.

Although most of us feel that our children can benefit from straighter teeth, let’s not forget our oral health as well. Thanks to the almost invisible plastic, there are no telltale signs of wires or brackets showing in your teeth. It’s more comfortable and less noticeable than metal braces; thus, an ideal treatment for adults who want to achieve a better looking, and healthier smile regardless of your age. See Clear braces if you want a better adult orthodontics alternative.

Invisalign was originally meant to treat adult smiles. That is because the design of the aligner does not allow for the permanent teeth to erupt. Because of the numerous advantages it has over other treatment methods, there is a huge market for teens that want to experience the same benefits adults have from this treatment; thus, Invisalign Teen was born. With this version of Invisalign, there are tabs left in places where the permanent teeth are expected to erupt. Therefore, teens experience the same advantage of the original Invisalign yet allowing the permanent teeth to erupt. Unfortunately, this treatment is not meant for pediatric or young patients. Not to worry because there’s Child orthodontics and Dental braces kids meant for that case.

Invisalign was an exciting new innovation and a great alternative to wearing traditional braces, but the treatment was initially intended for adults only. This is because each of the plastic shells fits closely to the jaw; thus leaving no place for permanent teeth to erupt. However, because of its benefits and mainly because it is more discreet than metal braces, teens wanted to have this similar treatment. Thus, Invisalign teen was the result. Invisalign teen is a modified version of the original Invisalign where there are tabs left in places for the teeth to erupt and grow. The advantage of Invisalign is maintained, and at the same time, it allows for the eruption of new teeth. This type of orthodontic treatment is not available for very young patients as of this moment, but don’t worry because there are Child orthodontics and Dental braces for kids available for these cases.


Invisalign First – for Kids!

What is Invisalign First

Clear Aligners for TeenagersCreating a great smile involves getting several treatments during early childhood even before all the teeth have erupted. Invisalign First is the next generation of treatment aimed for that matter. Invisalign first allows children who still have developing teeth to use Invisalign aligners to treat various orthodontic problems. It is an orthodontic treatment meant for younger patients who need to achieve a straight smile but doesn’t like the look of metal braces.

Invisalign First is designed to correct a wide range of broad to multiple straightening issues, such as crowding, tooth profusion, arch development, narrow dental arches, spacing problems, etc., with the aim of improving the overall appearance of the child’s smile. The trays of Invisalign First are custom-made to help gradually expand the growing teeth of the child. By expanding the arch, over time, a skilled endodontist such as Dr. Ron Ayzin can easily prevent or correct more oral health problems in the future.


Why Invisalign First?

Invisalign first is Phase One oral treatment. This type of treatment is used to make various corrections of the positioning of the growing jaw as well as the expansion of the arch and creating room for the growing teeth. Invisalign First can be used to treat various orthodontic issues such as:

  • Create space if the teeth are crowded.
  • Correct thumb sucking problems and improve speech issues.
  • Correct and guide the development of your child’s jaw.
  • Control the width of the upper and lower jaw.
  • Correct interferences and tooth protrusions.


What is Phase One?

As your child is growing, their teeth are growing with them.

This is the best time to treat any orthodontic problems of your child, particularly for children aged 6 to 10. This early treatment is known as Phase 1 Treatment.

Phase 1 treatment aims to develop young jaw and arches to make room for the permanent teeth to grow.


How Invisalign First Works

Invisalign First expands and contours your child’s jawline. This process is known as dental arch expansion. Through dental arch expansion, your child’s teeth are pushed until it reaches the desired dental arch width.

The procedure to expand the dental arch width starts with a consultation to determine if this is the best treatment for your child. If it is, then your dentist will take photos, x-rays, and impressions of your child’s teeth. Once he has gathered all the needed information, the data are sent to the lab where a custom Invisalign First device will be made.

Depending on your child’s oral health condition, he or she may need to use up to two aligners. There are certain conditions of your child’s teeth in which they may need to wear attachments to direct the pressure from the retainer device to the teeth.


Invisalign express / Lite

Invisalign Express/Lite has a shorter length of treatment than the traditional Invisalign treatment. Express is perfect for less complicated conditions as you’ll only have to wear five to ten sets of aligners compared to the standard Invisalign where you’ll wear up to 25 or more sets. Check out the Do’s and Don’ts of this treatment.
