You may have heard of Invisalign, even had friends who have had it or are even going through it right now. If you haven’t, then let me explain… Invisalign is the clear alternative to Braces and involves a sequence of clear aligners to move your teeth into the correct position to achieve a beautiful straight smile. There are a number of companies that offer this technology, Invisalign however is not only the original but the industry-leading company in this area and for good reason.
Well, we work hand in hand with a very experienced local orthodontist and treatment plan all our cases together meaning you are getting the best possible care. We have the latest 3D Intraoral scanner ‘The Itero’ to bring to you a complete digital workflow. i.e. no more gooey impressions. We mainly focus on adults, so if a straighter smile is something that you have always wanted but perhaps weren’t in the financial position before then come in and speak to us.
That depends on your individual situation but most take between 6 and 12 months.
Initially, we need some digital scans and photographs to begin planning your case. Once that is done there is an appointment at which we prepare your teeth- this can involve adding small amounts of white filling to certain teeth to allow the aligners to move them in specific directions.
You will need to wear aligners for 20-22 hours per day, meaning basically, you just take them out to eat. The first week takes a little getting used to, but after that, it becomes very easy and routine. You will swap to the next aligners in the sequence generally after two weeks until you complete the entire course.
