It’s Never Too Late to Enjoy Straight Teeth

So often, people resign themselves to living with crooked or overcrowded teeth. They may feel that their misaligned teeth are their lot in life and that the chance to do anything about it passed by them by the time they had reached adulthood. But that simply is not the case.

Whether you’re young or old, at Woodborough House Dental Practice, we have the perfect option for you; Invisalign invisible aligners.

Invisalign is a convenient and non-invasive way of addressing a wide range of orthodontic problems, without the need to wear a conventional brace. Best of all, due to the fantastic “invisible” design, barely anyone will ever notice you’re even wearing them.


What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign uses custom-made, removable aligners made from medical-grade thermoplastic specifically designed to perfectly fit your mouth. The aligners will exert a small amount of force onto your teeth, gently pushing them into a new, more desirable position.

Over the course of 6-18 months, you’ll be given several different sets of aligners to wear. Each set will help reposition your teeth ever-so-slightly closer toward the goal or being perfectly straight.


The Journey of Your New Smile

When you choose Invisalign, we’ll begin by taking some 3D images of your teeth using our intraoral scanner. This will allow us to get a precise picture of where your teeth are now, and where we’d like them to be in the future.

Using this information, we’ll set to work plotting the course that your Invisalign treatment will take. At this stage, we’ll even be able to show you realistic images of what your new smile will look like, so you know exactly what we’re working towards achieving.

Everybody is different, and your Invisalign treatment will be tailored specifically toward you. During your consultation, we’ll be able to give you a clear idea of how long the treatment will take for you.

Once you’re happy with the proposed results and you understand the process involved, we’ll create your first set of clear trays. Every few weeks, we’ll ask you to come back and see us and we’ll supply you with your next set.


What Can You Expect When Wearing Invisalign?

Invisalign is a major life-changing dental treatment, and we realise that you’ll have lots of questions you’ll need answers to before you commit. Our supportive team of dentists will take the time during your consultation to ensure you have all of the details you need to make an informed decision.

Once treatment is underway, we recommend that you wear your aligners for as much of the day as possible – you can even sleep in them.

You’ll be able to take your Invisalign trays out while you’re brushing your teeth or eating. This ensures that no food debris gets trapped, making maintaining perfect oral hygiene while wearing them that much easier.


Is Invisalign Right for You?

The Invisalign trays that you’ll wear are discrete and subtle. This makes them perfect for anyone that is looking to address crooked teeth or issues with their bite, without the need to wear obvious, cumbersome braces.

This revolutionary treatment is suitable for minor to complex orthodontic issues, and it is possible that you’ll start to see results within as little as three to six months.

Overall, the treatment is more comfortable in comparison to wearing traditional braces, and you can expect to get used to wearing them quite quickly.
