Creating Smiles
for 15 Years

Smiles by Morel together with Invisalign and Sure Smiles will take care of your teeth. Get the perfect smile in no time!

Clear Aligners

Aligners can substitute traditional metal braces. Since they're constructed of two transparent aligners customized to your mouth's precise dimensions, they are essentially unnoticeable. Not everyone needs Invisalign, but it may be ideal for people who need minor dental correction for problems including mild to moderate misalignment, overbite, or underbite.

Who Is A Candidate For Aligners?

People who typically benefit from wearing clear aligners are those with malocclusion (crooked teeth). Clear aligners are also effective for people that have large gaps between teeth, teeth that are sideways, open bite, and spacing issues.

Things to Consider
Before Getting Aligners

Considering Aligners? Then you're on track towards your dream smile!

Many individuals think Invisalign and traditional braces vary mainly in appearance, and Invisalign is faster and more discreet than traditional braces. Patients observe benefits in 1-2 months.

Invisalign may seem sleeker than metal braces, but it may still be uncomfortable. Some report discomfort, and some don’t.

When Invisalign aligners are removed, many patients’ teeth feel loose. This is normal, as your teeth must be relaxed to migrate.

Together with Invisalign, we make your aligners. After scanning your mouth with our scanner, the Invisalign lab manufactures aligners you replace every two weeks.

Your aligners must be worn for 22 hours daily, which means you can only eat and drink (other than water) in those two hours.

In the first week or two, some patients notice a slight lisp or unusual voice. A) Most people don’t notice, and B) it goes away as you become used to the aligners.

Every Invisalign case is different; some may require orthodontic rubber bands.

What to Expect
When Getting Aligners

It will be easier to decide if Invisalign is the best option for you if you know what to anticipate. You may quickly achieve a stunning smile in just five easy steps and some time!

Your dentist will examine your mouth during your initial visit and discuss your goals for cosmetic dentistry with you. Your dentist will let you know if getting Invisalign is right for you. Some individuals might not be suitable for this kind of teeth straightening procedure, which is why consultation is crucial. During the consultation, your dentist will talk about the treatment plan and the anticipated length of treatment as well.

The method of digital molding is the next step. Depending on your schedule, this can occur at your dentist’s initial appointment or a different one.

A precise model of your mouth and teeth is created using a digital scan, images, and x-rays. These are delivered to the Invisalign laboratory so that they can make your personalized aligner trays.

It’s time to come back for your pick-up when your Invisalign trays are prepared. To keep the trays in place, your dentist could install tiny attachments on your teeth. These buttons are transparent, virtually invisible, easy to install, and only exist temporarily. Your dentist will next check to see if your aligners fit, and after they are in place and your aftercare regimen has been thoroughly described, you are ready to go!

It’s time to revisit the dentist a few weeks after installing your initial tray. Your dentist will examine how your teeth move and how well the trays fit.

Several Invisalign trays are used throughout the procedure. You won’t need to schedule follow-up appointments with Invisalign like you would with metal braces. Instead, you can come back often to assess your development. You won’t have to visit the dentist every time you switch aligners. If your treatment is not going as expected, you might require a new digital scan to order an extra set of aligners.

Your teeth will have straightened up after some time. The degree of initial misalignment always determines the outcome, but if you wear your braces as directed, you will eventually have straighter teeth.

Things to Consider
After Getting Aligners

A convenient, easy option to get your ideal smile is with Invisalign. However, to achieve the optimal outcomes, you must consider the following.

Except for plain water, you shouldn’t eat or drink while wearing Invisalign aligners. The strain of chewing food is too much for the aligners to handle. Furthermore, food and beverages may get stuck between your aligners and teeth, increasing the risk of developing cavities and discolored teeth.

Your aligners may distort if you drink hot liquids while wearing them, rinse them in hot water, or leave them in a hot environment for too long. This will impact the fit and maybe affect your outcomes. Therefore, avoid exposing your aligners to severe heat, rinse them with lukewarm water after each use, and remove them from your mouth before consuming anything.

Call our office if you misplace your Invisalign aligners, and we’ll tell you what to do. Each pair of aligners is designed with specific tooth motions in mind and is essential to your overall Invisalign treatment strategy. We’ll let you know if you can switch to the next set or if you need to wear the last set while your replacement aligners are being created.

Since toothpaste has abrasive qualities, it could scratch your aligners. Our advice for Invisalign patients is to avoid harsh ones, particularly those colored or scented.

Frequently Asked
Questions About
Dental Implants

Your teeth are complicated bones in your body linked to complex structures, your gums and the rest of your mouth. Because of this there are many things you may not know that could benefit you.

Buy toothbrushes with soft bristles. Medium and firm ones can damage teeth and gums. Use soft pressure, for 2 minutes, two times a day.
Both powered and manual toothbrushes clean teeth well. Manual brushes with mixed bristle heights or angled bristles clean better than those with all flat, even bristles. Powered toothbrushes may be easier if you have trouble using your hands.
Set a reminder to replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months. Toss it sooner if the bristles look bent or splayed out. Bent bristles don’t clean as well. (They’re also a sign you may be brushing too hard.)
Most toothpastes will clear away bacteria growth and acids from food and drinks. Toothpastes with the American Dental Association (ADA) Seal of Acceptance always have fluoride, which strengthens and protects teeth. If you want a non-fluoride option, stores carry toothpastes and powders made with natural ingredients that don’t have ADA testing and approval. If you have any specific needs or conditions that may require different kinds of toothpaste such as toothpaste for tooth sensitivity, ask our dentist for options.
Don’t forget to schedule your bi-yearly doctors visit to determine if you need a teeth cleaning.
