    OVERVIEW

    What is Invisalign® treatment?

    Invisalign®, developed by Align Technology in 1997 in the USA, offers a modern twist on traditional braces with clear aligners. Utilising advanced 3D digital iTero scanning technology, Invisalign® involves the wearing of a series of clear aligners made from unique SmartTrack material. These aligners, which are replaced every ten days, are designed to progressively reposition teeth and see the results in a matter of weeks. Known for its effectiveness in a shorter period of time and its near-invisible nature, Invisalign has become an increasingly popular choice for those seeking to straighten their teeth without the obvious visibility of traditional metal braces. There are several Invisalign packages available, each tailored to a patient's unique dental situation and needs.

     

    How does Invisalign work? 

    Your Invisalign treatment begins with a detailed review of your teeth using a state-of-the-art 3D iTero scanner. During this initial step, you'll have the opportunity to discuss your smile goals with your dental professional. After this, the dental team will advise on the most suitable package for you alongside the expected treatment duration, and Invisalign® by Align Technology (USA) will custom-create your aligners.

    You will receive your first set of custom aligners on your second visit. Small button-like attachments are placed on specific teeth that require repositioning to ensure effective dental movement and fit. The aligners are designed to be worn for at least 22 hours daily and can be conveniently removed for eating, drinking, and oral hygiene. You should change each aligner after 10 days of wear. In the final stage, you will wear your last aligner for at least 6 weeks to ensure your teeth maintain their new positions. 

    Throughout your treatment, you should use the My Invisalign® app to upload progress photos. This not only helps you track your progress but also allows your dental team to ensure everything is moving according to plan.

    After completing the recommended treatment period, you will have a final control visit. If your results meet the initial expectations, you will transition to using the Vivera™ retainer only while sleeping. This helps maintain your new smile, marking the completion of your treatment journey.

    FAQ

    Why should I have my Invisalign in Turkey?

    Opting for Invisalign in Turkey presents a highly advantageous choice, especially when considering the cost-effectiveness compared to the UK. The treatment packages in Turkey are all-inclusive, covering every aspect necessary for a successful treatment—this includes consultation, X-rays, Invisalign®, iTero scanning, Vivera™ Retainer, numbing injections, and all laboratory fees. A significant benefit is the absence of hidden costs or additional taxes, providing clear financial transparency and savings. 

    The DCT VIP Dental Centres in Turkey are leaders in the dental tourism industry, boasting an average of 96% five-star reviews on sites like Trustpilot. Working with the original providers of Invisalign® clear aligners, these clinics feature technologically advanced treatment spaces, including state-of-the-art iTero scanners and CAD/CAM technology, overseen by skilled dental technicians. The level of technology and expertise in these Turkish clinics rival many top European dental centres, making Turkey an attractive destination for affordable, high-quality Invisalign® treatments.

     

    How long does treatment take?

    Your Invisalign® treatment duration is personalised, typically ranging from 4 to 9 months, depending on your dental needs, the desired outcome, and the Invisalign® package you are provided with. 

    Here's a quick overview of the different Invisalign® packages and their typical durations:

    •    Invisalign® Express: Designed for minor adjustments, this package typically takes about 16 weeks; approximately 4 months.

    •    Invisalign® Lite: Ideal for moderate corrections, but more than minor, the Lite package usually spans about 26 weeks, approximately 6 months.

    •    Invisalign® Moderate: For more comprehensive alignment, expect about 35 weeks of treatment; approximately 8 to 9 months.

    Additionally, the My Invisalign® app plays an integral role in your journey. It allows you and your dental team to diligently monitor your progress, ensuring that your treatment is advancing smoothly and as planned during your dental journey.

    How many times do I need to visit Turkey for my Invisalign® treatment?

    To successfully complete your treatment, you will only need 3 short appointments in Turkey, while tracking your progress through the My Invisalign® app. While the total number of visits remains consistent, the frequency of these appointments will depend on the specific Invisalign® package that best suits your case. Here is what you can expect at each appointment:

    1.    Initial Consultation and 3D Scanning: Your first visit is the cornerstone of your treatment. Here, you will undergo a comprehensive dental consultation, including advanced 3D iTero scanning. This session not only maps out your treatment plan but also sets the stage for your custom aligners to be crafted by Invisalign® Align Technology.

    2.    Second Visit: Aligner Fitting and Attachments: Approximately 30 to 60 days later, depending on the package, your custom aligners will be awaiting you, in the clinic. During this visit, precision attachments are affixed to your teeth, ensuring the aligners work effectively. This visit marks the beginning of your physical transformation as you start wearing your first aligner.

    3.    Final Visit: Completion and Aftercare: Upon completing your treatment, a final visit to your chosen clinic ensures everything is as it should be by the dental team. It begins with the careful removal of the attachments and is followed by a thorough dental cleaning to rejuvenate your smile. Next, impressions are carefully taken for your interim SX gumshield, which you will use during sleep until your personalised Vivera™ retainer, crafted by Align Technology, arrives to ensure your teeth remain aligned.

    At the end of your prescribed treatment duration, for your final visit, we expect you to arrive after completing each aligner, and the timing of when to travel to Turkey will depend on the specific Invisalign® package that is suitable for your treatment plan. 

    Will the Invisalign® procedure hurt?

    Invisalign® treatment is generally pain-free. However, when you start wearing the first aligner from your Invisalign® case, a sensation of pressure or slight discomfort may occur. This is a normal response and usually eases within a few days, signifying that the aligners are functioning as intended. Due to their state-of-the-art design, which omits metal brackets and wires, Invisalign® aligners are a more comfortable and less noticeable orthodontic choice. Discomfort levels can vary among individuals, but any that might arise is typically minor and manageable. If needed, over-the-counter painkillers, found at any pharmacy, can help mitigate discomfort. Always follow the pharmacist's guidance and the manufacturer's directions when using pain relief medication.

    What technology used for Invisalign®?

    Invisalign®'s use of iTero® Element™ technology offers a significant advantage over its competitors. This advanced imaging system creates precise 3D impressions quickly and comfortably, eliminating the need for traditional and gag-inducing impression material. iTero® stands out due to its capability to immediately show how your teeth might appear post-treatment with Invisalign® clear braces, provided that the treatment period is successfully completed. The 'integrated Invisalign® Outcome Simulator' and TimeLapse technology enable both dentists and patients to observe and plan the entire treatment process, offering a clear, side-by-side comparison of current and projected teeth alignment. This technology not only enhances treatment accuracy but also provides a compelling visual journey from beginning to end.

    What's the difference between Traditional Metal Braces and Invisalign?

    Invisalign® employs a series of custom-made, clear aligners that are virtually invisible, offering a more discreet orthodontic solution. These aligners are removable, facilitating easier eating and effective oral hygiene. Favoured for its discreet application and ease of use, Invisalign® eliminates the need for metal, avoiding irritation to the soft tissues in the mouth. A significant advantage of Invisalign® is the use of iTero technology, which enables patients to see the anticipated results of their treatment from the very start, a feature not available with traditional Metal Braces.
