Invisalign is an effective, practical orthodontic treatment suitable for patients of all ages. The system uses custom-made aligners to move teeth over a short period of time, creating beautiful, straight smiles. Stages of treatment include:
Stage 1: The consultation
During your free consultation we will discuss how the treatment works and explain how it could benefit you. We will be on hand to answer any questions you may have. If you decide to proceed with treatment, we will take photographs and create impressions of your teeth to be used in the design and manufacture of the aligners. This precise information will be sent to Invisalign's laboratory in the USA.
Stage 2: Your aligners are created
The highly trained technicians at Invisalign use high-tech computer software to convert the photographs and impressions into custom-made aligners. These are bespoke-designed to straighten your teeth with minimal discomfort. The number of aligners needed depends on the individual and can be as high as forty-eight.
Stage 3: Start wearing your aligners
When the aligners have been returned to the practice, we will invite you back to begin treatment with your first aligner. Each aligner should be worn for two weeks and then replaced with the subsequent aligner in the series. We will arrange a check-up after a few weeks to ensure that you are happy with the progress of treatment and check that everything is going smoothly.
Stage 4: Treatment continues
You should wear each aligner for two weeks for a minimum of twenty-one hours per day, but you should take your aligners out for eating, drinking and cleaning your teeth. We will arrange check-ups every six weeks.
Stage 5: Treatment is complete!
Once you have worn all your aligners you should have a beautifully straight smile!
People across the world have chosen Invisalign for the host of benefits it offers, with many people unaware that you are even undergoing orthodontic treatment due to discreet design of the braces. Invisalign is great because:
- The aligners are practically invisible
- The aligners are comfortable
