One of our more popular treatments for dramatically improving your smile must be Invisalign®. It is much talked about and for all the right reasons. Did you know that around 9 million people worldwide have been treated successfully with Invisalign®? So, let us dig a little deeper to discover how it works, what is involved and what are the benefits?
Invisalign® offers a treatment process using a series of clear aligners that are specially made to fit snugly to your teeth and gently move your teeth to the desired position. The aligners are barely visible, and you can smile without people evening noticing you are wearing them.
Invisalign® aligners are also removable so you can carry on eating the foods you like. You simply remove the aligners when you are about to eat and then brush your teeth once you are finished and put them back in. It is recommended you wear your aligners for 22-24 hours per day for the best effects.
The aligners are custom-made. We use 3D scans of your teeth and mouth, and this enables the aligners to be accurately created so they fit like a glove.
We will give you a consultation to see whether you are suitable to have Invisalign® and work out the best option for you. If you are suitable for this adult-friendly treatment, we will collect information about your teeth and take impressions and photos. Then, 3D technology is used to create a personalised treatment plan. This is a great part of the process as we can show you your teeth and how they will move and how they will look once your treatment is over.
The scans get sent off to a special laboratory where they will make your series of customised clear aligners. You will wear a new aligner every two weeks. These aligners will move your teeth into a better position. You may sometimes feel slight discomfort, more a feeling of pressure, once you have your new aligner, but this just lets us know the aligner is doing its job.
Treatment times do vary depending on the individual case. However, most cases are completed in 6-12 months. Once Invisalign® has worked its magic and you have your brand-new smile you will need to have a retainer made. A retainer needs to be worn following all orthodontic treatments as teeth tend to attempt to move back over time.
