Invisalign 隐适美常见问题

更多Invisalign 隐适美信息
Invisalign 隐适美治疗的工作原理是什么?
在您与Invisalign 隐适美医生沟通确认治疗方案后,您的隐适美医生会对您的牙齿进行取模、拍摄X 光片和检查等诊断。这些印模数据将用来制作 3D 治疗方案,该方案将用来设计量齿定制的 Invisalign 隐适美牙套。此 3D 治疗方案还能显示出治疗结束后预期牙齿所处的位置。为您量齿定制的 Invisalign 隐适美牙套会直接运送给医生,由医生教会您佩戴,通常每次会给到您 3 到 4 副牙套。大约每 2 周进行更换,直到将牙齿矫正到预期位置。 单击此处获取治疗过程的细节。
Invisalign 隐适美牙套的外观如何?

Invisalign 隐适美医生
全科医生和口腔正畸专科医生有何区别?
无论是全科医生还是口腔正畸专科医生都需要经过专门的培训才能成为Invisalign隐适美医生,提供 Invisalign 隐适美治疗服务。区别在于,口腔正畸专科医生需要接受三年或三年以上高级、密集的正畸培训,临床专攻口腔正畸治疗。全科医生可提供常规的牙科治疗,包括但不限于检查、洗牙和补牙。有些全科医生也开展正畸业务。
我是否需要被转诊到口腔正畸医生?
一般来说,您不需要被转诊到口腔正畸医生,但如果您的牙医认为您需要接受口腔正畸专科治疗,可能会将您转诊。同样,如果正畸医生认为您需要先进行常规牙齿治疗或拔牙才能进行牙齿矫正,会将您转诊到全科医生处。
Invisalign 隐适美治疗和我的医生有什么关系?
在医生决定提供 Invisalign 隐适美治疗后,他/她需要接受 Invisalign 隐适美培训。Invisalign 隐适美医生培训课程的培训对象是具有牙科执业医师资格证书并想要提供 Invisalign 隐适美治疗的医生。本培训不应视为对牙科医师执业许可的认证或担保,亦不应视为对执业医师牙科治疗或正畸技术水平的认可。牙科执业医师在完成 Invisalign 隐适美医生培训课程后,便可以提供 Invisalign 隐适美治疗服务。但是,执业医师仍掌握全部的治疗决策权并对此全权负责。其中包括为患者制定适合的治疗方案(包括预测的牙齿移动)以及根据特定患者的治疗方案为其佩戴一系列量身定制的 Invisalign 隐适美牙套。
如果我更换医生,我支付给原医生的费用如何处理?
由于 Invisalign 隐适美治疗是为您量齿定制的,价格和条款由您的医生设定。转诊之前,您需和现在的医生结清账目,让其知道您想更换医生。然后确保询问新医生治疗费用如何计算。如果您即将开始接受治疗,但觉得很可能会因为某些原因(例如搬家或入伍)更换医生,最好提前和医生就费用和支付时间事宜达成统一意见。
我如何确认医生是否经过Invisalign隐适美培训?
欲了解您所在区域提供隐适美治疗的口腔诊所的清单,请参 见此处。 已完成 Invisalign 隐适美治疗培训的医生持有课程结业证书,您可以在诊所查看他/她的证书。
如何寻求 Invisalign 隐适美治疗?

Vivera Retainers
Do I need retainers?
In short, yes. Retainers prevent teeth from gradually shifting back toward their initial position after braces, Invisalign treatment or other clear aligner treatments. The right retainers and retainer maintenance can protect the investment you’ve made in your smile and save you money in the long run.
Can I use Vivera retainers if I had metal braces?
Yes! Vivera retainers are designed to maintain teeth that have been aligned by metal braces, Invisalign aligners, and other clear aligners alike! Vivera retainers can also accommodate lingual bars/wires (also known as a permanent or fixed retainer), missing teeth that require an artificial tooth, and bite ramps (also known as turbos or blocks). Ask your Vivera Provider if Vivera retainers are right for you.
How much do Vivera retainers cost?
Cost for Vivera retainers can vary depending on your Vivera provider. Vivera retainer orders include three sets, so you save on the cost of each set, and you'll always have a set handy when you need it.
Are Vivera retainers included in the cost of orthodontic treatment?
They can be. It depends on your Vivera provider and specific situation – talk to your provider to understand how cost works.
How do I get started with Vivera retainers?
Our Smile Concierge Team can help you make an appointment with a Vivera provider near you and answer any additional questions. Many doctors offer free initial consultations. For the best experience, take the time to find the right provider for you — someone who makes you feel comfortable and has the experience you’re looking for.
Can I go to any dentist or orthodontist for Vivera retainers?
Many orthodontists and dentists offer Vivera retainers, but not all do. Our Smile Concierge Team can help you find a Vivera provider near you.
How do I get fitted for my Vivera retainers?
All Vivera retainers are custom-fit to maximise comfort and results. Ask your Vivera provider about getting a digital scan to be fitted for Vivera retainers.
How do I order Vivera retainers?
You can order Vivera retainers through your Vivera provider so that you have a retainer that is custom designed to fit you.
How do I take care of my Vivera retainers?
Talk to your Vivera provider about specific care instructions, but we typically recommend using a soft bristle toothbrush with water or a small amount of toothpaste. Rinse each retainer thoroughly with water after each cleaning.
How often will I need to replace my Vivera retainers?
Consult your Vivera provider for specific guidance, but like most retainers, Vivera retainers should be replaced after a period of use. In general, whenever your retainers look cracked, damaged or are showing signs of breakage, it’s time to switch to a fresh new set.
How do I get a new pack of Vivera retainers when I run out?
If you lose, break, or simply run out of your last set of Vivera retainers, just get in touch with your Vivera provider to help you purchase a new set of Vivera retainers, so you can keep showing off that smile!
What if I lose or break my retainer?
With Vivera retainers, you get three sets of retainers, so you’re always ready with a backup.
How long will I have to wear my Vivera retainers?
Ultimately, retention protocols are prescribed by the Vivera provider and can be different for your unique conditions and treatment plan. Your provider will give you specific instructions on how often you need to wear your retainers. An example protocol might include wearing the first set full time, then based on the provider’s recommendation gradually reducing until retainers are only worn at night or even a few nights per week.
Are Vivera retainers right for my child?
Yes! Vivera retainers are custom-fit to every smile and work for adults, teens, and little smiles alike.
Can we use Vivera retainers if my child had braces?
Absolutely! Vivera retainers can work for people who have had a wide variety of treatments, including metal braces, Invisalign and other clear aligners.
How long will my child need to wear retainers?
We know you’ve been through a lot to get here, but because teeth continue to shift throughout life, experts are saying retention is for life. The right retainer and retainer routine will prevent your child’s teeth from shifting back over time and having to start over on braces or aligners. Vivera retainers will help you protect the investment you made in your child’s smile.
Why does my child need three sets of retainers?
It’s no secret to any parent that things sometimes mysteriously break or go missing. With Vivera retainers, there’s always a backup handy so you can skip the ‘drop everything and get to the orthodontist’ moments.
I’m a teen, and I’m wondering if Vivera retainers are right for me?
Yes! Vivera retainers are custom-fit to every smile, and work for adults, teens, and little smiles alike. Plus, they’re virtually invisible and custom-fit for comfort so they won’t get in your way.
Do I have to wear it every night?
Ask your Vivera provider about your specific retainer protocol, but we get it – we’re striving for consistency over years, not perfection. No need to panic if you’ve missed a night, just do your best to stick with the plan your provider prescribed! In some cases, your provider might even recommend moving to a few nights per week for the long haul to keep your smile looking great.
I had orthodontic treatment a long time ago. Do I still need to wear retainers?
Yes. Teeth continue to shift over time, so experts are saying retention is for life. The right retainer and retainer routine will protect the investment you’ve made in your smile so you won’t have to start over with braces or aligners.
I haven’t worn a retainer in a while. What do I do?
Talk to your Vivera provider about what you need to do to protect your smile. If you don’t currently have a provider, get in touch with our Smile Concierge, and a member of our team will help you choose a provider in your area and set up a free consultation.
I can tell my teeth have shifted. What do I do?
Shifting happens, especially if you’ve lapsed with retention. Talk to your Vivera provider to evaluate your options. If you don’t currently have a provider, get in touch with our Smile Concierge, and a member of our team will help you choose a provider in your area and set up a free consultation.

整个 Invisalign 隐适美治疗需要多长时间?

在 Invisalign 隐适美治疗过程中,我需要多久看一次医生?

我可以一次性拿走全部的牙套吗?
您将分批获得此次就诊之后到下次就诊之间所需的足够量牙套(一般每次提供 3-4 副)。您的医生将每 6 至 8 周检查一次您的治疗进展,并在您就诊时为您提供新的牙套。您可以同医生协商每次可以提供的牙套数量。

Invisalign 隐适美适应性
我是否需要全天佩戴牙套?
为及时取得最理想的治疗预期,治疗期间您每天佩戴牙套的时间应为 20 到 22 小时。
在治疗期间,饮食上有什么限制吗?
没有限制。在治疗期间您可以尽情享受美食,因为在您进食或饮用饮品时可以摘下 Invisalign 隐适美牙套。因此,除非您的医生另有说明,否则您无需节制饮食。不过,我们建议您在每餐后都用牙线清洁牙齿和刷牙,然后再重新佩戴牙套,从而保持良好的口腔卫生。
在佩戴牙套期间,我可以喝热饮或冷饮吗?
除冷水外,我们不建议您在佩戴牙套时饮用其他饮品,以免牙齿上形成龋洞和菌斑,或者因热饮造成牙套变形。
在佩戴牙套期间,我可以喝酒吗?
除了喝冷水外,我们建议您在进食或饮用饮料时摘下牙套。饮用饮料可能会使牙套染色,而饮用含糖饮品则可能会使您患上蛀牙
在佩戴牙套期间,我是否可以吸烟?
我们不建议您在佩戴牙套期间吸烟,因为这可能会使牙套染色。
在佩戴牙套期间,我可以嚼口香糖吗?
佩戴牙套期间不可以嚼口香糖,因为口香糖可能会粘在牙套上。我们建议您在进餐、吃零食以及嚼口香糖时摘下牙套。
在我睡觉时,牙套是否会滑落?
无论您在做什么(睡觉、说话或大笑),牙套都不太可能掉出来。Invisalign 隐适美牙套的设计可确保牢固贴合牙齿,所以这一点无需担心。
佩戴牙套会影响我说话吗?
与其他正畸治疗方法类似,佩戴 Invisalign 隐适美牙套之后,某些患者的言语表达可能会暂时受到一些影响。 但是,随着舌头对牙套的逐步适应,由牙套引起的发音不准和轻微口吃都会在一到两周内消失。请向您的医生咨询如何才能更快地适应牙套的佩戴。
如果我感觉牙齿已经矫正得差不多,是否可以终止治疗?
为确保达到最佳的治疗预期,请务必遵循医生制定的治疗方案。您的医生会权衡各种因素,包括牙间隙是否正常、是否需要保持治疗等,帮您确定建议的治疗持续时间。
如果我要外出旅行,可否在复诊时要求领走更多副牙套?
建议您定期到医生处复诊,以确保治疗正常进行。如果您需要在外出期间使用更多的牙套,请向医生咨询,因为这要根据您的具体情况和治疗方案而定。
我要移居国外,我该如何继续治疗?
爱齐在全球 多个国家或地区提供 Invisalign 隐适美治疗,您可以转诊到其他国家或地区继续治疗。请就此问题咨询您现在的医生。
如果我怀孕了,能否佩戴牙套?
如果对此仍有疑虑,请咨询您的专业医生。
接受 Invisalign 隐适美治疗时会感到疼痛吗?
接受 Invisalign 隐适美牙齿矫正治疗时,一般不会有其他矫正方法所导致的疼痛感和焦虑感,但有些患者可能会在佩戴新牙套的头几天出现短暂轻微的不适。这是正常现象,通常被称为压力感。这说明您的牙齿正在相继移动到预期位置。这种不适感一般会在几天之后消失。
我在佩戴牙套时感到疼痛和不适。我该怎么办?
如果您感到剧烈疼痛或有明显不适,请立即停止使用并与您的 Invisalign 隐适美医生取得联系。
使用 Invisalign 隐适美牙套时有何注意事项或禁忌?

正患有牙周疾病的患者禁止使用。如果您患有牙周(牙龈)疾病,请向医生咨询可否接受 Invisalign 隐适美治疗。

Invisalign 隐适美治疗期间的注意事项包括:

在极少情况下,有些患者会对牙套材料过敏。如果遇到这种情况,请立即停止使用并告知专业医生。

在极少情况下,患有遗传性血管性水肿 (HAE) 的患者可能会出现喉等组织的急性局部肿胀。即使是包括牙科治疗在内的轻微刺激,也可能会导致这种症状的发作。如果遇到这种情况,请立即停止使用并告知专业医生。

牙套或其中的零件,可能会被不小心吞咽或吸入,从而可能对人体造成伤害。

我的附件变黄了,我该怎么办?
请联系您的医生,他/她可能需要将变色的附件完全摘除并进行更换。
为什么我的牙套上会有凸起或隆起处?
根据您具体的治疗情况,某些移动步骤可能需要采用“附件”或“脊”来帮助牙套紧扣牙齿。这些凸起或凹陷处是为了帮助牙套紧扣在牙齿的附件。附件就是医生粘结在您牙齿上的小块牙色复合材料,它们是通过牙套模板上的凸起处粘在牙齿上的。Ridge 是指牙套上的压力装置。为了达到良好的治疗预期,医生会采用其中一个或同时采用这两个功能件。
Invisalign隐适美牙套真的是隐形的吗?
牙套近乎隐形,别人基本不会注意到您在接受矫正治疗。
