How does Invisalign® work?
Teeth move by applying gentle pressure on them. As part of your Invisalign® treatment, your dentist will provide you with sets of bespoke aligners. Each aligner is slightly different from the last – applying small amounts of pressure in different areas to create movement.
How often will I need to see my dentist during Invisalign® treatment?
Your dentist will provide enough aligners for 6-8 weeks of treatment. You must change the aligners weekly for optimum results. You will need to see us every 6-8 weeks for any adjustments that need to be made, such as making space between teeth. This is done by hand (a bit like sandpaper) so that crowded teeth have space to move into. It is entirely comfortable.
Is Invisalign® really invisible?
The Invisalign® aligners are made of thin clear plastic, so they are incredibly discreet. They shouldn’t be noticed at all unless speaking face to face and on close inspection. To hold the aligners in place, you will have small “anchors” that look like tooth-coloured “bumps” on the teeth. We carefully choose a colour that matches your natural tooth shade so it will not be noticeable.
What are the benefits of Invisalign®?
Invisalign trays are virtually undetectable – They are fully transparent. This is a particularly good alternative for adults, teenagers, and young adults who wish to avoid the brackets and wires associated with conventional braces.
Because Invisalign trays are constructed of smooth plastic, they are far more pleasant than traditional metal braces. Invisalign has no sharp or protruding edges or parts, and the trays are custom built to suit your teeth and mouth!
When you’re ready to wash and floss your teeth, just remove the Invisalign trays, clean your teeth, and replace them. The trays themselves may be cleaned as well! Simply remove the trays and rinse or brush them with your toothbrush to ensure there is no build-up. A healthy mouth is one that is clean! It is important to maintain healthy teeth and gums when straightening your teeth in order to have the ideal smile at the conclusion of treatment!
Safe and Removable
Are you or your child involved in sports or band? Invisalign® provides a more comfortable treatment by avoiding the abrasion that other orthodontic methods might cause. Invisalign® trays are also removable, making cleaning your teeth, eating, and going about your daily activities more convenient than other solutions.
No diet restrictions
One of the most difficult aspects of teeth straightening with many orthodontic procedures is food limitations. Some of your favourite meals are prohibited, which might ruin a good occasion; anything too hard, chewy, or sticky is forbidden! Invisalign is not affected by these concerns. You are free to eat anything you want after removing the trays!
Improved Oral Health
Straight teeth benefit your gums and oral health. Removing crowding and gaps in your teeth make it simpler to care for them, and improved dental health leads to greater general health.
Stunningly Straighter Smiles
The results speak for themselves, with Invisalign resulting in wonderfully straight teeth and a stunning smile. Possibly the most compelling reason to use Invisalign!
