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 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?
Once we confirm that Invisalign is a suitable treatment for your specific requirements, we will use the latest technology to create a 3d scan of your teeth using the iTero intraoral scanner which allows you to see 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. Regular checks will ensure sure they’re moving in the right direction throughout the treatment period.
The latest 3D technology
We use predictive 3D modelling (based on over 5 million clincal cases worldwide) to plan your treatment. This results in a Clincheck Ⓡ report unique to your individual needs. A ClinCheck Ⓡ is a short 3D animated movie that allows you to see your predicted Invisalign treatment result before you even begin the Invisalign process. This allows you to see the movements that your teeth will go through, as well as the end result, and is what many patients find attractive and reassuring about Invisalign.
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!
