Let Your Smile Shine
Would you love a straighter smile but hate the idea of wearing traditional braces? Invisalign could be your best solution.
What is Invisalign?
Instead of using fixed metal brackets, wires and elastics, Invisalign straightens your teeth nearly invisibly using clear aligners. The aligners are made from a very thin plastic material and are custom-designed to fit tightly over your teeth.
Who Can Have Invisalign?
Initially, you will need an appointment with our Invisalign dentist to check you are suitable for treatment. Some people who seek Invisalign treatment will have worn braces during childhood but have seen their teeth shift with age. Invisalign isn’t always suitable for correcting more complex orthodontic problems as occasionally fixed braces can provide more precise tooth movements.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Our dentist will need to assess your teeth and the way they bite together. Next, they can plan your treatment using digital scans, photographs and x-rays of your teeth. The information is used by sophisticated computer software to create 3-D digital images of your teeth. Our dentist will plan exactly how each tooth will move until all your teeth are correctly aligned. You can preview the digital images, seeing precisely how your teeth will look once treatment is complete.
What to Expect During Treatment?
Invisalign is incredibly easy to use. You simply insert your aligner trays, only removing them whenever you want to brush and floss your teeth or for mealtimes. It’s important to wear your aligner trays for at least 22 hours each day. Because the trays are removable, there is no need to change your diet or your oral hygiene routine, so there is minimal impact on your everyday life. Each set of aligners trays is worn for two weeks and then discarded for the next set in the series. You continue wearing the aligners until your smile is straight.
How Long Does Treatment Take to Complete?
Treatment time can vary according to the corrections required. If the problems requiring correction are cosmetically oriented and only affect your front teeth, treatment may be shorter. More complicated corrections will take longer. You will receive a far more accurate timeline during your initial consultation, and of course, we can answer all your questions about this treatment.
