Invisalign is a virtually-invisible, teeth straightening system, used to improve the alignment of your teeth. You wear a series of smooth, plastic, invisible, "aligners" to straighten your teeth. They are completely removable and easy to clean. They are comfortable and convenient and provide the least amount of interference in your daily life.
If the alignment of your teeth can be corrected with the Invisalign system, Dr. Martinez will write a detailed treatment plan that determines how your alignment and your invisible "aligners" will change throughout your program.
When you begin treatment, you'll wear each set of aligners in approximately two-week increments. The aligners gently move your teeth into position, and at the end of each two-week period, you "graduate" to the next set of custom aligners. As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth will begin moving, little by little. You don't have to wait until you complete treatment to see your smile change - you may start seeing positive changes early in the process.
Oasispark Dental is using iTero digital impressions! The gagging, messy putty once used for taking impressions of your teeth is a thing of the past!
The iTero takes a digital, 3D image of your teeth, allowing you to instantly see the image. The digital picture is emailed to the lab and is available in the Invisalign Clincheck system the next day. The accuracy and detail of the iTero scan vs a putty impression is kind of like watching high definition television over standard television. By removing the ‘clay modeling step,’ we have greatly improved the speed, accuracy and virtually eliminated the need for rescanning.
Imaging quality is superior to that of putty impressions, making results immediate and turnaround times greatly reduced in creating your custom aligners.
With the aid of audio-visual prompts, magnified real-time video, and 3D virtual model articulation during the scanning process, the iTero also functions as an educational feedback device, allowing for immediate adjustment of any deficient preparation areas. The resultant benefits are significant: better fitting aligners, less time in the chair and improved patient comfort.
