“Must Know” Tips Before Getting Invisalign

June 27, 2015

 

ThinkstockPhotos-177000598The orthodontic and cosmetic dentistry fields have come a long way even in the last five years. What was in back in the day is nothing more than a memory today. We’re in the business of straightening teeth and are always keeping our ears and eyes out for the latest techniques and procedures. One of the most advanced orthodontic and cosmetic dentistry treatments available today is the unique Invisalign system. It’s taken the dental industry by storm as more and more people are ditching metal braces and opting for this fantastic treatment. It’s the preferred teeth-straightening procedure for teens and adults, so you know you’re in great company. Deciding whether or not Invisalign is right for you isn’t a quick process, but if you’re eligible for treatment, there are some things you need to know before choosing Invisalign. At Robison Dental Group in Canton, MI, we want you to know ahead of time what treatment will involve, and how best to prepare.

Invisalign – Yay or Nay?

“Is Invisalign right for me?” It’s what countless patients ask themselves. Though it has become one of the most preferred ways to straighten teeth, it isn’t right for everyone. Why? Usually, the main culprit is a patient’s bite. It’s important to note that Invisalign is used for cosmetic purposes. If you have a bite that’s causing problems, Invisalign may not be compatible with your situation. Our cosmetic dentist will know the answer for sure once your mouth is thoroughly inspected.

It isn’t just bite problems that can derail the possibility of receiving Invisalign treatment. A lot of patients discover that there is a lot of upkeep and responsibility falls solely on their shoulders. Yes, it offers many beneficial alternatives over traditional metal braces, but unlike braces, you have the power to straighten whenever you want. How much time you spend receiving treatment is entirely up to you and how closely you’re following your regimen.

Below are some tips to consider before discussing Invisalign treatment with us:

1.       Prepare to wear your aligners for a prolonged period of time. You must be able to commit to 22 hours of wear and changing aligners every two weeks.

2.       Embrace that strange, straightening feeling. Your teeth are shifting, which is a good thing. You may experience some tooth sensitivity and pain at first, but it should go away after a couple days.

3.       Perfect your brushing and flossing regimen. Trays can be a breeding ground for bacteria to grow, so brushing and flossing is vital.

4.       Avoid sugary foods and drinks like the plague. We all know the horror sugary treats can cause to your teeth, but if any sugar content is left behind in your trays, it can stain your teeth.

Remember, the pace of your treatment and its success is dependent on you. By being proactive in your treatment, you’ll see results that will leave you breathless.

Straight Teeth for Every Family Member with Orthodontics in Canton, MI

November 15, 2014

87717422Sometimes, when a parent takes a child to the orthodontist for braces, they see those young teeth becoming straighter and they think, “How about me?” But then they might think, “I don’t need a mouth full of metal at my age.” At Robison Dental Group in Canton, MI, your child can have traditional orthodontics to straighten their teeth, while you have Invisalign® clear braces for yours. The best of both worlds are available in one convenient location with Dr. J.D. Robison.

Braces, of course, are designed to straighten crooked or crowded teeth, an incorrect bite and jaw problems. Traditional braces consist of metal brackets that are secured to the teeth with special dental cement and then connected with a wire. This wire is held in place with bands that now come in a rainbow of colors. So, for younger patients, braces can be a chance to show school spirit or just have fun with color. These braces require scheduled appointments for tightening and changing the wire in order to control the pressure, which moves the teeth into place.

For adults, Invisalign clear braces—as the name implies—straighten teeth almost invisibly. So, if the concern is that having braces might compromise your social or professional life, then Invisalign can allay those concerns. These braces straighten teeth with clear BPA-free plastic aligners. You’ll wear each set of aligners for your upper and lower arches for about two weeks and then move on to the next set. As you progress, you’ll begin to see your teeth gradually straighten. Most patients can complete their treatment with Invisalign in about one year.

Call Our Office Today

So, if your child needs braces and you want to finally straighten your own teeth, schedule an orthodontics appointment for both of you at Robison Dental Group in Canton, MI. Our office also conveniently serves patients from Ann Arbor, Northville, Westland, Plymouth and the surrounding areas.

How Long Do I Need to Wear My Invisalign Braces Each Day?

July 1, 2013

If you’ve researched Invisalign, you know that the aligners you’ll wear are removable. But does that mean you need to wear them all day long?

That will depend in part on the personal instructions you receive from Dr. John Robison or Dr. J.D. Robison. In general, though, the answer to that question is yes.

For Invisalign to work efficiently, pressure needs to be applied to teeth for at least 22 hours a day. So, when should you take your aligners out? To eat or drink, and for brushing and flossing. As a result, Invisalign lets you enjoy the same kind of diet you enjoyed before you started treatment. Plus, by taking your aligners out for brushing and flossing, patients are able to clean parts of their smile that would be harder to clean with bracket-and-wire braces.

In some cases, you may be able to take your aligners out for special events. This might include a night out with friends or a special date. But to achieve the results you want in the average treatment time of 12-18 months, it’s best to wear your aligners for the recommended amount of time each day.

Do you want to learn more about how Invisalign can help you enjoy a straighter smile without the need or metal brackets or wires? Call Robison Dental Group to schedule a consultation with Dr. John Robison or Dr. J.D. Robison.  Our dental team serves patients from Canton, Ann Arbor, Northville, Westland, Plymouth, and beyond.

Invisalign: A Clear Alternative to Traditional Braces

August 28, 2012

If you’ve dreamed of a straighter smile but think the only way to achieve one is with traditional braces, you’re missing out. At Robison Dental Group, we offer a revolutionary orthodontic solution called Invisalign that’s helping us change the lives of Canton-area teens and adults.

What makes Invisalign different? The answer is threefold. Invisalign is:

  • Clear
  • Removable
  • Convenient

Now, let’s take a look at each one of these.

Clear

Traditional braces use effective but unattractive brackets and wires to gradually move teeth into their ideal position. Invisalign, on the other hand, relies on a series of clear trays instead, each of which is custom-made for your smile and is intended to bring you closer and closer to your goal. And because your aligners are clear, you can look forward to treatment that’s more discreet and unobtrusive, leaving you feeling more confident as you go to work or school.

Removable

Besides being clear, there’s another benefit to Invisalign—your aligners are removable. What that means is you can still enjoy all your favorite foods by simply taking out your aligners when it’s time to eat. But that’s not all it means. By taking out your aligners to brush and floss, you can keep your teeth cleaner than you can with traditional braces, which can encourage tooth decay and gum disease.

Convenient

Both of the above combine to make treatment with Invisalign a more convenient orthodontic solution for Canton-area patients to consider. Because Invisalign uses clear trays instead of brackets and wires, no tightening appointments are needed. Instead, we’ll just need to check your progress periodically. And because removable trays make it easier to keep your teeth clean, future appointments for common oral health problems are less likely.

Are you ready to talk about how Invisalign can help you? Call Robison Dental Group today to schedule an appointment with Dr. John R. Robison or Dr. J.D. Robison. Our doctors serve patients from Ann Arbor, Northville, Westland, and Plymouth.
