Invisalign and Elastics

Precision cuts with Invisalign can be a bit scary for a general or pediatric dentist.

Here’s a few of my favorite videos. My suggestion is to make your home care and demonstration videos eventually with your own patients and post them on your website.

(note- she’s using slot to slot which is different than is slot to button)

Contact us at StraightSmile Solutions for sample home care and tracking instructions.

You can buy the 3/16 medium elastics and buttons from the Invisalign store.

3/16 medium is for slot to button (1/4 medium if they have big teeth)
3/16 light is for slot to slot
3/16 heavy for button to button

 

Elastics need to be changed at least 4 times a day.

Check the bite as well as the tracking at every appointment or consider using a system like www.GPorthotracking.com
