Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign is incredibly popular with over 7 million patients worldwide choosing the get their teeth straightened with this innovative brace. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners which are almost invisible to gently move your teeth to the desired positions. You wear each aligner for around one week and then change to a new aligner to progressively move your teeth.
With the aligners being removable, you can continue to eat and drink whatever you like throughout treatment and they can be easily removed for occasions when you would rather not wear them. To complete treatment quickly, it is recommended that you wear the aligners for around 22 hours per day and many of our patients find this easy to achieve.
With the aligners being completely clear and very discreet, no one will know you are wearing them so Invisalign really is one of the best options for those who would rather keep their orthodontic treatment private.
Here some great reasons to consider Invisalign:
If you decide to undertake your orthodontic treatment with Invisalign, we will send your scan to Invisalign who will produce a digital record of your teeth. Skilled orthodontic technicians will use software to individually move each tooth towards the desired final position and from this, a clin-check video will be produced that will enable you to visualise every step of your treatment.
Once you are happy with the proposed plan, Invisalign will manufacture a series of clear aligners for your treatment. The number of aligners you need to wear will depend on the amount of tooth movement required. Towards the end of treatment, we will assess the progress you have made and we may order a series of refinement aligners to get you the perfect end result.
The best way to answer this is to let you know what patients have told us about their Invisalign treatment. When you first get the aligners, they will fit your teeth quite snugly and you will feel them quite tight. This feeling soon wears off and although your aligners should never be painful, the gentle pressure they apply to your teeth will start them moving. Within a few short days, you will hardly know you are wearing them which is an indication that your teeth have started to move. The next set will again feel quite tight but this time you will be aware of what to expect and not notice it anywhere near as much. Some patients get a small lisp when they first get Invisalign but this soon wears off and no one will be able to tell you are wearing Invisalign.
