Important facts about Invisalign

Invisalign treatments have seen a sensational boom in recent years. There are good reasons for this. The treatment is not associated with pain and above all the aesthetic factor is in the foreground. Conventional braces are without a doubt an optical handicap. Especially in the teenage years, many teenagers resist this type of dental treatment. An invisible rail  eliminates this problem. But what else is there to know about treatment with Invisalign? We have compiled the most important facts for you here.

What is Invisalign?  Invisalign means nothing more than invisible tooth correction. It is an orthodontic procedure that eliminates misaligned teeth. Removable, transparent plastic rails, which are also called aligners, are used for this.

The Invisalign method is ideal for mild and moderate misalignments of the teeth. In severe cases, treatment with classic braces is still recommended. Invisalign is also not applicable to children under 6 years of age, as teeth and jaws are still growing too fast. In addition to the age of the patient and the type of misaligned teeth, another important factor plays an important role in the success of the treatment - namely the willingness of the patient to cooperate.

For treatment to be successful, it is of the utmost importance that the aligners are worn for at least 20-22 hours a day. Forgetfulness and / or comfort put the success of the treatment at risk. The fact that the splints can be removed is a major advantage, but this also harbors the risk that people often forget to put the splint back on after eating or dental care. The risk of carelessness is particularly high with children and adolescents. You must therefore be reminded to wear the aligners constantly. In case of doubt, an alternative classic treatment may therefore be more sensible for this target group.

Dental care must be taken very seriously when wearing the Invisalign aligners. Because they have to be worn for the majority of the day, leftover food under the splints is particularly harmful to dental health. Thorough dental care after every meal, no matter how small, is therefore essential. The rails themselves must also be cleaned thoroughly before each insertion. The best way to do this is to use water and mild soap. Toothpaste, on the other hand, encourages the formation of bacteria in the splints and should therefore be avoided.

Drinks such as coffee, tea or red wine have a strong discoloration effect and should therefore not be consumed if possible. The ritual of drinking coffee in particular should be restricted as much as possible during the treatment, as this takes up a substantial part of the time that is allowed to remove the splints. If, as an exception, drinks that discolour are consumed, the subsequent dental care is mandatory.

The average cost of Invisalign treatment for adult patients is between 3,500 and 6,500 euros. This depends on the type of misaligned teeth, as well as the duration and scope of treatment. The statutory health insurances  usually do not cover these treatment costs. Private supplementary insurance can be a good solution here. Inquire about the service catalog of the various providers
