What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a clear brace system that straightens the teeth discreetly, with most cases being able to complete within 6-12 months (depending on complexity)
The treatment is completely digitally planned which improves the accuracy and the efficiency of the tooth movement.
Furthermore, by making a 3D digital scan of your teeth we are able to show you an outcome simulation of what your teeth could potentially look like after treatment. This way you can see the improvement before you commit yourself to have treatment
There is a simple 3 step process to begin your Invisalign journey
At the consultation, we will assess your concerns, wants and needs as well as taking a 3D digital scan to show you a potential before and after of what your teeth will look like
At this appointment we will be able to show you a more accurate and detailed version of what the tooth movement will be as well as how many attachments are needed in addition to any space requirements (this can be done remotely)
Once the clincheck is approved we can then get the aligners manufactured within 3 weeks and fitted to start moving the teeth
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign clear aligners move the teeth through a series of careful and controlled planned movements. Each aligner will move certain teeth in a particular pre-set sequence which will move the teeth accordingly over the course of treatment. The aligners are dispensed to you in batches with each aligner needing to be changed around 7 days
Am I suitable for Invisalign?
Due to the technological advancements in Invisalign over the last decade, there is a lot more scope to treat more complex tooth movements with Invisalign. Thus the vast majority of complex tooth movements can be treated with Invisalign.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and hardly noticeable when worn.
As the aligners are removable, you can also eat and drink whatever you wish during the course of Invisalign by removing the aligners before a meal, which is not the case with fixed braces which may result in dietary restrictions.
Oral hygiene can be easier to manage as the aligners need to be removed when brushing and flossing.
Brackets and wires are not used with Invisalign and as a result, there are fewer appointments required to change these components compared to Invisalign which can reduce the amount of time taken off work to see the dentist.
Does Invisalign hurt?
Invisalign applies gentle forces to the teeth over the course of the treatment and there is some initial discomfort as the teeth start to move. Multiple studies have shown there is less discomfort compared to traditional braces.
Will it affect my speech?
With any type of brace system, there will be an adaptation period which may result in temporary speech changes. The speech changes disappear quickly once you get used to wearing them.
How long will it take to start treatment and how often do I have to come in?
Following the consultation, we can normally get the aligners shipped and fitted within 3-4 weeks.
You normally come and see us every 6-8 weeks for a check to make sure everything is going smoothly.
After finishing treatment, how long do you need to wear retainers?
Retainers must be worn lifelong at night time in order for the teeth to stay in the same position after finishing treatment. We will discuss your retention plan at your consultation appointment.
