An Ottawa dentist reviews study results from an anterior region
Invisalign treatment analysis.
OTTAWA, Nov. 20, 2012 /CNW/ - A Mainz, Germany, private practice and
scholars from the Medical Centre of the Johannes Gutenberg-University
examined tooth movement results from patients treated with Invisalign.
The results were published online in the Journal of Orofacial
Drs. David Bartos and Mark Northcott, Ottawa cosmetic dentistry providers, know the powers of Invisalign treatment. Their office offers
dental implants, IV sedation and Invisalign treatment in greater
The study scrutinized 50 real Invisalign cases, comparing the before and
after casts as well as the primary and closing ClinCheck simulations.
ClinCheck shows patients individual treatment plans and anticipated
outcomes. The sample's average crowding index was 5.96 mm for the lower
dentition and 5.39 mm for the upper dentition, using the Little
irregularity index. After Invisalign treatment these values reflected
averages of 0.82 mm and 1.57 mm respectively.
Extreme front teeth crowding was effectively achieved with Invisalign
treatment, according to study results. Researchers also found the
patients' ClinCheck expectations to be true to their real results.
"Resolving lower anterior crowding by protrusion of the anterior teeth
(i.e., enlargement of the anterior arch length) seems well
predictable," according to the research.
Bartos, an Ottawa Invisalign provider, can show Invisalign patients how the aligners will give them
straighter smiles. With these study results, patients can trust that
the predicted results will be accomplished.
Invisalign, created by Align Technology, corrects a variety of alignment
issues, including gapping, crowding, overbites and underbites. Doctors
design an individual treatment plan involving a series of plastic,
removable aligners. These aligners are comfortable and hardly
noticeable, and patients enjoy taking them out to eat and drink. Every
few weeks, a new aligner set encourages teeth to glide into their ideal
positions. Most patients complete Invisalign treatment in a year to a
year and half. Invisalign Teen comes with added benefits for younger
patients, including replacement sets for lost aligners and blue dots to
show how long aligners have been worn.
This study further iterates how Invisalign is improving smiles and
sparking confidence in patients across the globe. More than 1.5 million
patients smile brighter because of Invisalign.
