What is Invisalign?
Invisalign® is a subtle but highly effective treatment that uses specially designed aligners to gradually move teeth into their desired position. It is a great option for adults and teenagers who may feel self-conscious about wearing noticeable fixed braces.
Invisalign® can treat a whole range of issues, from minor tooth alignment to much more complicated cases.
What is the Invisalign procedure like?
If you are a suitable candidate, we will take an impression of your teeth and use 3D technology to create a personalised plan. This is so you can see exactly how your teeth will look during and after the process.
When your aligners are ready, we’ll fit you with your first custom made set and then, every two weeks, you’ll change to a slightly different aligner until teeth are gradually moved into place. We’ll check the progress of your teeth to make sure they’re moving in the right direction throughout the treatment period.
What are the advantages of Invisalign?
The main advantage of Invisalign® is that the straightening process is so discreet. The custom made aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed for cleaning, eating or those extra special occasions.
How long does the Invisalign process take?
The process will vary depending on each individual case – most simple cases can be completed in just 6-12 months and more complicated cases within 1-2 years.
Do I need to wear the aligners all day?
One of the big advantages of Invisalign® aligners is that they can be taken out for short periods when you have a special appointment (for example an important meeting or major social event) but try not to do this too often! Remember Invisalign® will only work while your aligners are in place and we recommend that they are worn day and night for a minimum of 22 hours (and only removed for eating and cleaning).
Why should I get Invisalign?
There are so many good reasons to get Invisalign – the aligners are removable and transparent, for example – but the best reason of all is that it will give you a wonderful smile for years to come. And that’s the real reason our patients love Invisalign!
