What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a unique and innovative alternative to braces. Very often, people – especially adults – are put off of getting braces due to the fact they are incredibly visible and are considered unsightly. While the benefits of braces outweigh the negatives, our team can understand why people have been put off of them previously.

Invisalign is an invisible alternative. They are made out of moulded plastic that is shaped to your teeth. As they sit so close to the teeth, people can hardly notice they’re there. They work to sort out a wide variety of issues including underbites, overbites, crossbites, overcrowding and even gapped teeth.

How Does Invisalign Work?

These invisible braces work uniquely. Instead of being permanently fitted, they are removable — they only need to be removed when eating and drinking. Invisalign needs to be worn 22 hours a day to be effective.

They start to realign your teeth through a series of invisible braces. Each is slightly adjusted to start to slowly move your teeth, getting them into the perfect position with each pair. You can easily change them at home. On average, you should be switching to the next set of invisible braces every 1 to 2 weeks.

This is a painless system that will give you a brighter and better smile in a matter of weeks. If you would like to find out more information, please get in touch with us or take a look at our main Invisalign page.

Is Invisalign Available For Adults?

Much like traditional metal braces, Invisalign is very much so available for adults. These invisible braces will keep you smiling throughout the teeth straightening process. Invisalign is available for both adults and teenagers; anyone who would like to benefit from a wider smile. There is no age limit on these transparent braces.

What Is The Process To Getting Invisalign?

First, we will have to take you through a case assessment. This is just a simple set of photos to see if Invisalign is the best solution for your teeth. If we have determined that you will benefit from a set of invisible braces, we will move on to the next step.

Next, we will take more photos, as well as X-rays and other digital scans. Our team will then take a dental impression of your teeth so we can craft the perfect invisible braces around that. Using all these scans and images, we can craft a unique digital treatment plan that is tailored to you. This is to show you the potential outcome of your Invisalign usage with a 3D video.

The next step is your tailored set of aligners. These are to be worn every day. Our invisible braces should be changed to the next set of aligners every 1 to 2 weeks (or as directed by your dentist). These can be comfortably worn for the majority of the day. The recommended daily wear is 22 hours. These need to be removed when eating and in keeping your daily oral hygiene routine.

The final steps will be check-ups around every 4- 6 weeks. This is to monitor your teeth’s movement as well as giving you the next set of aligners. At the very end of your treatment, you will have to wear retainers while you sleep to maintain your new and brighter smile.

Benefits Of Invisalign

By getting Invisalign, you will be transforming your way of life. This is because you will have a more confident smile and feel more ready to take on the world. Because these are fitted to your teeth, they are invisible in comparison to traditional metal braces. You will also benefit from better dental health as it is widely known that straighter teeth are far easier to clean than overcrowded mouths or crooked teeth. Enhance your way of life and feel more at ease with a wide and open smile. Say no to crooked teeth and take on the world with our invisible braces.
