Advantages Over Traditional Braces

Invisalign is an easy, proven way to straighten teeth as an alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign often works faster than traditional braces and is typically no more expensive. Invisalign braces are clear and are therefore very hard to see, which can provide you with a huge bump in confidence and lead to a happier experience with braces.

Though Invisalign is not suggested for everyone, it is perfect for adults who would be embarrassed by traditional braces, which are mostly associated with children. Additionally, those who are fitted with Invisalign will be very pleased with the outcome.

Being Fitted With Invisalign

In order to be fitted for Invisalign, we will make a mold of your teeth that will be used to create your custom Invisalign aligners. Invisalign braces look very similar to a retainer, and they are just as easy to put in. A great advantage of having Invisalign braces is that they are removable. Traditional braces are glued to your teeth and connected by metal wires, but with Invisalign, you can take out your aligners if needed. It is required that your aligners remain in your mouth at least 22 hours a day. But the real advantage of Invisalign is that they can be removed for eating and to brush and clean your teeth.

You may wonder what goes on with Invisalign between the time that our dentist in Honolulu takes impressions of your teeth and when you receive your first set of aligners at our Honolulu office. State-of-the-art computer technology plays a vital role in the process. In fact, Invisalign’s high-volume, customized manufacturing process is the first of its kind in the world. The steps in this process include:

  • To ensure a high degree of accuracy throughout the process, Dr. Miyasaki takes impressions of your teeth.
  • Dr. Miyasaki sends Invisalign your impressions, which are used to make plaster models of your teeth.
  • Using advanced imaging technology, Invisalign transforms your plaster models into a highly accurate 3-D digital image.
  • A computerized movie called ClinCheck depicting the movement of your teeth from the beginning to the final position is created.
  • Using the Internet, Dr. Miyasaki reviews your ClinCheck file and if necessary, makes adjustments to the depicted plan.
  • From your approved ClinCheck file, Invisalign uses laser scanning to build a set of actual models that reflect each stage of your treatment plan.
  • Your customized set of aligners are made from these models, sent to Dr. Miyasaki in Honolulu, and given to you. You wear each aligner for about two weeks.

After wearing all of your aligners in the series, you’ll get the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
