FAQs About Line-M-Up™ Invisible
Aligners & Invisible Braces
It’s perfectly normal if you have questions about how Line-M-Up™ and invisible braces work, because these options entail some of the most cutting-edge orthodontic technology!
Line-M-Up™ is Dr. Karpac’s trademarked invisible aligner technology that takes this newer type of treatment to a whole new level by simultaneously catering to patient comfort and treatment timeline efficiency. Invisible braces function just like traditional metal braces, but they’re completely clear and a lot less noticeable.
Below are some of the frequently asked questions we receive about invisible aligners and invisible braces:
Invisible aligners like Line-M-Up™ apply pressure to a patient’s teeth that slowly but surely moves them into their proper positioning. Line-M-Up™ is much like other invisible aligner options in that you’ll receive a comprehensive series of aligners that you’ll replace on about a bi-weekly basis.
Each set of aligners will continue the necessary adjustments to maintain the course of the orthodontic treatment. The more a patient wears their aligners on a daily basis, the faster their treatment will go.
It’s important to remember that everyone is unique, so there isn’t a treatment time period that’s set in stone for any type of orthodontic treatment. However, Dr. Karpac will be able to provide you with treatment timeline estimates as you start to see results begin taking place.
What’s great about Line-M-Up™ as compared to other invisible aligner products is that many patients do in fact see a sped up treatment timeline. Line-M-Up™ treatments vary anywhere from just 6 months to about 2 years.
One of the biggest benefits that patients love about Line-M-Up™ is that you can remove the aligner trays for eating, drinking and other important events. What’s important to remember is that you really shouldn’t leave your aligners out of your mouth for more than a couple hours each day.
So although it’s perfectly fine to remove your invisible aligners for important events, you should try to keep them on if you think it’s still possible. Every patient also has to remove their aligners each day for eating, drinking anything besides water, brushing and cleaning, and the general rule to follow is that your aligners should be in your mouth for a minimum of 22 hours each day.
The foremost way to keep your invisible aligners clean is to maintain the cleanliness of your mouth. This means brushing and flossing prior to putting your aligners on so you don’t run the risk of trapping food in them. Certain staining beverages like coffee, soda and tea can potentially impact aligner aesthetics, so it’s best to be extra careful when enjoying these drinks by rinsing and brushing when you’re done.
Dr. Karpac provides every Line-M-Up™ patient with a state-of-the-art cleaning solution that thoroughly cleans out aligner trays, and this solution should be used on a daily basis. You also should have a designated toothbrush for your invisible aligners, and give them a good scrub before putting them back on after meals and snacks.
The biggest difference between invisible aligners and invisible braces is that braces are permanently attached to your teeth, whereas invisible aligners are removable. Invisible aligners require a decent amount of discipline to better ensure treatment efficiency, so invisible braces require a little less commitment from a patient’s standpoint.
But because you can remove your invisible aligners, flossing and general oral hygiene is more convenient. Invisible braces involve diligent flossing and brushing techniques because there are more hidden places for plaque to develop, but you generally won’t need to clean your teeth as much as you would with invisible aligners that require several cleaning sessions per day. There are also no food restrictions with invisible aligners, which is different than invisible braces that do have certain restrictions that need to be abided by.
There certainly are many pros and cons between these two treatment options, but the good news is that Dr. Karpac and our staff will help you better know which treatment option is best for you or your child’s specific needs.
Line-M-Up™ patients still need retainers just like invisible braces patients, and you’ll utilize your last set of aligners as your retainers for the foreseeable future.
Most invisible aligner patients will only need to wear their retainers while they sleep each night, and this will help you maintain your treatment results while your teeth are still adjusting to their new positions.
