Invisalign clear braces are an alternative to fixed braces, and can be used to treat mild to complex teeth straightening issues. These braces are made of strong medical grade thermoplastic material, uniquely developed for the Invisalign® System. The braces/aligners are custom-made for you and fit over your teeth.
Invisalign treatment is a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth. Using advanced 3D computer-imaging technology, Invisalign shows you your complete treatment plan based on your dentists prescription, from the initial position of your teeth towards the final desired position. Then a series of clear brace/aligners are custom-made for your teeth to move them little by little. These aligners are removable, which allows you to easily take them in and out when it suits you without any restrictions.
Invisalign aligners move teeth through a series of carefully controlled movements. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign treatment not only controls the amount of movement that each aligner delivers, but also the timing of the movement.
What is the process?
To start off the process, your dentist will ask you to come in for a consultation where you will be confirmed if you are eligible for this treatment. During the consultation you will of had photographs taken off your teeth and mouth structure, if you wish to continue, X-rays and dental impressions of your teeth will be taken. This record will be used to create a ClinCheck® 3D treatment plan.
Once you have been confirmed you are eligible, a your braces have been custom-made from the ClinCheck®, you will receive a set of clear braces to wear each day and change at home every 1-2 weeks depending on your needs.
Prior to this, every 8-10 weeks it’s vital you visit your dentist to monitor the progress and receive new (clear) braces. After your treatment plan is finished you will be given retainers which are required to maintain your new and straight smile.
The time of the process is varied between patients, it depends on the complexity of your treatment, your dentist will be able to give you detailed information on how long your procedure will take.
Why choose Invisalign?
Invisalign braces are nearly invisible and typically hardly anyone notices that you’re wearing them – this is highly beneficial for adults who need braces and wouldn’t want to go through adulthood with fixed metal on their teeth. As there is no fixed metal, it means (in most cases) less time is spent with your dentist for adjustments.
As well as this, using the Invisalign system allows you to view your results and treatment plan virtually so you can see how your teeth will look before completion.
