 INVISALIGN FAQ

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a technique in which clear transparent aligners are utilized to correct your teeth and bite. Basically, they’re a set of clear, removable aligners that are designed to straighten your teeth over time just like braces, but without using wires or brackets at all.

The material is a patented thermoplastic material that was made just for use for Invisalign. Because this material is totally safe, Invisalign is FDA approved and doesn’t have harmful chemicals such as latex. If you’re allergic to gluten, no need to worry because Invisalign aligners are gluten-free.

At Marble Dentistry in Vaughan, the aligners are specially made for each individual patient. An experienced dentist will make a digital scan of your teeth and form your clear aligners specifically to apply the right pressure in the right places through dental attachments and solve your smile concerns. Through every step of the process, you’ll be monitored by your orthodontist in Vaughan.

How Do the Clear Aligners Work?

Another popular Invisalign FAQs is: how do they work?

Invisalign is very similar to the metal braces; their main advantage is the fact that they are clear as opposed to braces. Your aligners are designed to put gentle force on your teeth, in different areas, through the dental attachments and with careful timing, to bring them into a more aesthetic and functional alignment. Each aligner is designed to make only the slightest of adjustments to prevent discomfort and root resorption.

Aligners are swapped out usually about every 7 -10 days, to continue putting constant pressure on your teeth. This ensures that your orthodontist can continue monitoring the progress of your teeth and alter the aligners if needed.

Eventually, the incremental progress will slowly accumulate, and you’ll discover that your smile improves over time. The best part of it all is that you won’t have to deal with the bulk or discomfort of traditional metal braces to get the smile you’ve always wanted.

How Long Is Invisalign Treatment?

Treatment length varies depending on your particular orthodontic needs, but in general, Invisalign treatment for adults usually can be completed in six to eighteen months.

How Often Do I Have To Wear My Invisalign Aligners to Obtain ideal results?

You must wear your aligners every day for 19 to 22 hours in order for them to work.

When you take your aligners out to eat and drink or to brush your teeth, make sure you put them right back in to continue the treatment. Missing large gaps of treatment time will prolong your treatment which can be very frustrating.

Do I have To Avoid Certain Foods?

The answer is No! One of the best aspects of the Invisalign treatment offered at Marble Dental Centre in Vaughan is that you do not have to restrict your diet. The aligners are meant to be removed while you eat, so you do not have to worry about damaging them with hard or sticky foods.

Keep in mind that you will need to clean your teeth after eating before you put the aligners back in.

How Do I Take care of My Aligners?

You might wonder how to avoid discoloration, odor and a buildup of bacteria? Follow these tips for how to clean Invisalign trays.

Take your aligners out and clean both your teeth and the aligners thoroughly after you wake up.

We at Marble Dental Centre recommend to rinse them when you remove them. You want to avoid creating an environment for bacteria to grow on your aligners.

Brushing the aligners with a soft-bristled toothbrush also is a good way to remove some of the plaque.

Soak your clear aligners in either a denture cleaner or Invisalign cleaning crystals every day.

Does Invisalign Hurt?

While there is pressure on your teeth to align them and that might cause discomfort, many patients are not very affected by this. However, it is possible that you may feel a little discomfort, especially when you are using a new set of aligners.

This discomfort should disappear within a few days and should never exceed pain beyond some slight sensitivity.

For the early days, you can utilize over-the-counter pain medication, to help alleviate the discomfort if necessary.

Is Invisalign Easy To Use?

The answer is yes! That is what our patients in Woodbridge, Vaughan love the most about Invisalign. The clear aligners are easy to put in and remove and are very comfortable to wear. There are no sharp edges and because they are invisible to people around you, you will feel more confident wearing them.

Also because they are removable, keeping your aligners and teeth is much easier. You are also able to floss easily.

Dental Implant FAQs

Dental Implant: Changing Lives

Dental implants have changed considerably the way we treat missing teeth and restore the function and aesthetics. Connecting the artificial teeth to the jaw makes them as strong as your natural teeth, which allows you to eat anything you want without worrying about your teeth when you talk, eat, and laugh. Dental implants done at Marble Dental clinic in Woodbridge allow you to live your life to the fullest!

What are the main types of dental implants?

There are two main types of dental implants on the market:

•             Endosteal Implants: Endosteal means “in the bone”, so Endosteal implants are surgically attached to patient’s jawbone. They act as an artificial root and can support a replacement tooth.

•             Subperiosteal Implants: These implants are positioned to rest onto a patient’s jawbone instead of being placed into the bone. They are preferable for individuals who have severe bone loss on their jaws.

WHAT IS A DENTAL IMPLANT?

A dental implant in Woodbridge is an artificial tooth that is made up of three main parts. The implant post itself is a small titanium screw that is placed in your jawbone done by our top rated dental surgeons in Vaughan. An abutment, or connector, connects the implant to the crown which is the third and visible part of the dental implant.

HOW DO DENTAL IMPLANTS WORK?

Dental implants are made of pure titanium, so they are able to permanently integrate with the bone which is called Osseo integration. This fusion is so effective that it allows dental implants to function as natural teeth in all chewing, biting, and dietary functions.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DENTAL IMPLANTS done at Marble Dental Centre?

•             Can last for a long period of time if maintained properly

•             Not removable (They are fixed restorations)

•             Look and feel natural and aesthetically acceptable

•             Protect the jawbone from deterioration by maintaining the bone density

•             Eliminate dietary restrictions as patient’s function is restored completely

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET A DENTAL IMPLANT FROM START TO FINISH?

The entire process of getting a dental implant at Marble Dental Centre in Vaughan can take 3-6 months, depending on the surgical site, your need for bone grafting or tooth extraction, and the complexities of your surgical case.

WILL I NEED TO HAVE BONE GRAFT WHEN DECIDING TO REPLACE MY MISSING TOOTH?

On average, patients that have had a missing tooth for a very long time might require bone grafting prior to dental implant surgery. A consultation with one of our dentists at Marble Dentistry in Vaughan, ON will reveal the particulars of your specific case.

WILL I MISS WORK?

We recommend to take the rest of the day off following you implant procedure done at Marble dental clinic in Vaughan. In general, most patients are able to return to work the next day with no discomfort.

DO DENTAL IMPLANTS HURT?

The answer is No. Dental implant surgery is performed after numbing the surgical area, and the surgical site is always kept numb during the procedure. Later in the day, as the anesthesia wears off, you might start to feel some mild discomfort but nothing that can’t be controlled with over-the-counter medications.

Who are a good candidate for to get a dental implant?

Individuals considering dental implant treatment must meet a few criteria to ensure ideal outcomes. For example, you must have:
