Invisalign® is a clear, almost invisible aligner that straightens your teeth and can enhance your smile. Invisalign® clear aligner orthodontics are made to order once you and your dentist has decided that this is the right treatment plan for you. A 3D scan of your teeth will be taken to help your dentist build a treatment plan and have your series of aligners made.
Everyone’s teeth are different, but between 3 and 9 months is long enough to give most of our patients the aligned teeth that they desire. Invisalign® is a gentle process for most patients. There can be some mild discomfort during the first week of wearing the aligners, although this is significantly less than the discomfort from fixed braces.
Do I need to have impressions taken?
No. We have a 3d digital iTero scanner which allows us to comfortably scan your teeth to produce the treatment plan and aligners.
Aligners should be worn all the time and only removed for eating, cleaning your teeth, and flossing. Each aligner is worn for 1 week and then changed to the next one in the sequence.
Invisalign® is discreet, and it offers results that are predictable and dependable and will carefully and efficiently move your teeth into place. It’s removable for eating, easy to keep clean, and causes minimal interruption to your usual daily routines. You are able to see a digital treatment plan of what you teeth will look like before we start so you can make sure you are happy with the final result.
How often do I need to come for appointments for Invisalign?
We usually give you 3-5 aligners at a time meaning we see you every 3-5 weeks. Although this is slightly flexible so we can work round other commitments you may have such as holidays etc. We also offer evening and weekend appointments for convenience.
Do I need to wear a retainer after treatment?
Yes a retainer needs to be worn to prevent the teeth moving again, just as with normal braces treatment. How often you need to wear this can be discussed with your dentist
