What is Invisalign treatment?

The Invisalignclear aligners system consist of a series of clear aligners, thin plastic trays, that apply a constant force to teeth to affect their movement and are usually changed every one to two weeks. They look a little like a traditional mouthguard, made of a thin, lightweight, clear plastic. The orthodontic aligners are worn day and night but can be removed when eating, flossing or cleaning your teeth. As each aligner is worn and changed, they move the teeth very gradually until the required result is achieved.

Many adults who have bite problems or crooked teeth refrain from having their teeth straightened simply because they don’t want to be seen in the workplace wearing ‘railroad track’ braces. Invisalign® clear aligners elegantly solve this problem. They are virtually undetectable. And they’re more comfortable – in fact, many people soon forget they’re wearing them.

Another advantage is that the aligners can be removed for brief periods. While they should be worn constantly, it is acceptable to remove them for a maximum of two hours a day – perfect for special occasions, big presentations or simply when you brush and floss your teeth.

What’s the process?

After an initial consultation with your dentist, a 3D digital image of your teeth will be produced using a Itero 3D scanner this will allow us to see the potential final outcomes of Invisalign. A set of custom aligners, specifically made for you, is then produced from this image. At this point, it’s also possible to see a computerised estimate of how your teeth will look once the treatment is complete. This gives you a realistic understanding of the final outcome.

Each aligner is usually worn for up to two weeks before moving to the next one in the series. Generally, treatment can take between 6-10 months and a visit to the dentist is required approximately every 2-4 weeks. The number of aligners needed is different for each patient and their treatment plan.
