Rather than traditional braces, Invisalign’s removable aligners are made of SmartTrack material meaning that they should be practically invisible when they are in place. With Invisalign achieving the smile you always dreamed of doesn’t have to be a big deal. In fact, it barely has to impact your day-to-day life at all.

Following a full consultation with the dentist, personalised aligners will be made, each of these will need to be worn for one to two weeks before switching to the next one. This allows the teeth to move little by little, week by week into the desired position.

Treatment ProcessTreatment

Your dentist will take an impression of your teeth to check whether they are suitable for straightening using the Invisalign system. Once it has been confirmed that you are suitable for the treatment you will be provided with a detailed treatment plan which will give you an exact picture of where your teeth will end up. This means you will be able to see the outcome of your treatment before committing, taking the mystery out of the teeth straightening process.

You will need to attend for appointments every 6-8 weeks so that the dentist can monitor how your teeth are moving and provide you with your next sets of aligners.

The time it takes to complete treatment varies from person to person, depending on the complexity of the treatment plan. Treatment can be completed in as little as 3 months, if you change your aligners every week, but your dentist will be able to give you the best idea of the treatment time prior to treatment commencing.

Benefits of InvisalignBenefits of Invisalign

No Unsightly Metal Brackets – If you are looking to straighten your teeth but want to ensure that no one else will know, Invisalign is for you! When the aligners are in your mouth no one else will know you are in the process of straightening your teeth.

Removable for Important Events – This means that if you have a job interview, a wedding or an important family event you can briefly remove the retainers. You will not need to worry about unfortunate photos of your teeth straightening process appearing for years to come.

Removable for complete cleaning – Another reason being able to remove your aligners can be useful, is to ensure that you can thoroughly clean both them and your teeth. With wire braces it can be very difficult to clean braces thoroughly. However, with Invisalign you need not worry. You will even be given advice on the best products to use to clean them fully.

No hassles when you try to eat different foods – You do not have to worry about breaking brackets or wires as you would if you were to choose wire braces. Invisalign aligners are removed when you eat and drink and therefore mean you can continue to eat a full and varied diet including all your favourite foods.Invisalign Retainers
