Invisalign’s portfolio of innovative treatments fixes a large range of teeth straightening issues: from overcrowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, crossbites to overbites and underbites.
There are 3 different types of Invisalign treatments, depending on the severity of your teeth.
Full treatment, straightens teeth with a series of removable virtually invisible aligners. Most bites that were treated by conventional braces can be corrected with Invisalign.
For less complex cases such as minor crowding and spacing issues.
An easy and convenient solution, designed specifically for minor tooth movement, i7 works within as little as 3 months.
Invisalign can straighten teeth using a series of nearly invisible aligners that are custom-made to your teeth for comfort. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move gradually towards the final projected position as prescribed by us. Unlike fixed braces, you can remove the aligners and put them back in again at any time – so you end up with the straight new smile that transforms your life.
What happens once I have decided to go ahead with an Invisalign treatment?
After visiting us for your orthodontic assessment, you will be invited back into the practice to have initial records. This will consist of an orthodontic xray, external and internal imaging and impressions of your teeth for study casts, as well as for your bespoke Invisalign aligners to be made. You will then receive an email, with your clin-check, this is where we can look at a 3D image of your teeth and discuss how your teeth will progress and how they will look at the end of your treatment. Once happy the aligners will be sent for manufacturing.
Will anything be stuck onto my teeth?
Possible, some patients requires attachments, tooth coloured composite material stuck onto the front surface on the teeth to assist with some movements, for example, tooth rotation. This will be shown to you on your clin-check.
Will I need any additional treatment other than my Invisalign checkups?
Possible, when having an Invisalign treatment it is possible you may need interproximal reduction, thinning of the edges of the teeth, to create some space to be able to freely move the teeth. (Take a look at our separate patient information leaflet on interproximal reduction.)
Do I still need to see my regular dentist?
Yes, it will be important you attend regular check up’s.
What happens after my treatment?
After the treatment it is advised you wear retainers, a bespoke fixed retainer set permanently behind the teeth and a clear removable pair for at least 8 hours per day for the next year. The use of retainers can be reduced but long term wear is advised to maintain your new smile.
