Is it possible to modify treatment midway through Invisalign treatment if I want to change the final results?

Doctor's Answers 1

Of course you can always modify your treatment plan midway through Invisalign treatment. Good communication between your orthodontist/dentist is essential to successful treatment. There must be a reason for your clinician deciding on the final result of the clincheck. Overbite reduction is almost always an important goal of orthodontic treatment, and would usually not result an ageing profile.

However if you feel you would like a different treatment outcome, depending on your Invisalign package and how long you have been on treatment, you may be entitled to additional aligners at any point of your treatment. This means that you can stop the treatment at any time, and take new impressions or new scans to send for new aligners with a different treatment outcome and a different clincheck.

Do check with with your orthodontist/dentist and discuss your concerns with him/her so that they can address your concerns.

Thank you.

Warm regards,

How do dentists determine the amount of space needed to fix an overbite? (photos)

The decision to extract, or not to extract, for any case depends on several factors, such as the facial and lip profile (e. g. are the lips protruding?) the amount of overlap or crowding of the teeth, how much the teeth are flared forward with respect to the bone, etc. Patients with a substantial overjet would more often have lips that unable to close due to the teeth which are sticking out. In situations like this, extractions will result in a more aesthetic or pleasing outcome.

How do clear aligner brands such as Zenyum, ClearSmile and MBrace compare against Invisalign?

As you have said, Zenyum is a very new clear aligner company. There is very little background information on the official website regarding the technology used for their treatment planning and aligner manufacturing. Zenyum appears to be a collaboration between local orthodontists and tech entrepreneurs. At the moment, there is no verifiable track record that is available for the public to see. I cannot tell you what software they are using for treatment planning.
