How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign treatment can help straighten your teeth without the hassle of wires and brackets. It’s a great way to get the same results as traditional braces without all the fuss and without affecting your appearance in the process.

Using 3D intra-oral scans and advanced computer software, your Invisalign treatment plan is created digitally, ensuring the accuracy and efficiency of tooth movement throughout the entire treatment process.

The aligners are made of a patented transparent plastic material, which is custom produced to fit your teeth and treatment goals. They’re also removable, so you can eat what you want and brush and floss your teeth as normal. It’s a revolution in the teeth straightening world!

Instead of getting a fixed set of braces which need adjustments every three to four weeks, Invisalign clear aligners are designed to move your teeth gradually over time. It’s super convenient since you simply move onto your next set of aligners every other week from the comfort of your home.

Invisalign aligners should be worn for around 22 hours per day, the time it takes to work their magic!

What's the process?

First of all, we’ll meet up for an initial free consultation with one of our teeth straightening guru’s. This is where we will discuss your goals and determine if Invisalign is a good fit for you.

If you are a good candidate for Invisalign, your dentist will take a series of digital impressions and scans to create a 3D visualisation of your smile. Not only will this allow you to see just how great your teeth will look following treatment, but this model will be used to produce your custom fit aligners.

As each new aligner is worn, the teeth will move closer to their ideal position until they reach their final placement at the end of the full course. We’ll provide you with an estimated timeline for completion during your initial consultation so that you can plan accordingly.

Key benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign has certain benefits over other orthodontics methods of addressing teeth alignment. These benefits have contributed to many people preferring Invisalign aligners over other alternatives, such as braces. The aligners have certainly made getting a straighter smile easy for many people, particularly those who found braces daunting.


Invisalign aligners look much better than braces. They work better behind the scenes without attracting any unnecessary attention towards you. They are much less noticeable than the wires and brackets that come with braces, making them more appealing to people who want to restore their smile without attracting any attention to themselves.

In some cases, if you have a few crooked teeth and the misalignment is not as bad, having braces can actually make you look worse before looking better. You might have noticed many people with braces hide their smiles to keep people from seeing the braces.

They are removable

Once you put on the braces, there’s no catching a break from them until it’s time to remove them or something happens, and they have to be taken off before it’s time. Invisalign on the other hand are removable. It’s a huge benefit because you can eat freely without worrying about getting shreds of food entangled on the braces, which can be hard to remove. Also, you can remove the aligners during other tasks, such as brushing your teeth, enhancing oral hygiene and reducing the time it takes to clean your teeth.

Fewer potential problems

Wearing braces is often riddled with challenges. Although they have been around for some time, braces haven’t been improved for most of that time and often pose many challenges to the patient. The brackets and wires, for instance, can dig into the soft tissues around the mouth, creating pain and discomfort, usually requiring a visit to the dentist.

With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about such an emergency. The trays are custom-made to your teeth, ensuring they fit snuggly. Because there are no sharp or rigid edges, there is no risk to the soft tissue in your mouth. However, you will experience some discomfort as the teeth are forced into their correct positions.

Invisalign FAQs

Utilising a set of transparent, removable aligners, Invisalign allows you to gradually reposition your teeth into their optimal position. These aligners, which are made precisely for your teeth, should be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day. Every few weeks, you will switch to a new pair of aligners to complete the corrective process.

Invisalign offers several advantages over traditional braces. The aligners are virtually invisible, making them a discreet option. They are also removable, allowing you to eat, drink, and clean your teeth without any restrictions. Additionally, Invisalign generally requires fewer visits to the dentist for adjustments compared to traditional braces.

Depending on how complicated your case is, Invisalign treatment times can change. The duration of the course of treatment is usually between 12 and 18 months. Some situations, however, might take less time, but others might need more thorough care and take up to 24 months.

Invisalign can effectively treat a wide range of dental issues, including overcrowding, gaps between teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites. However, the suitability of Invisalign for your specific case will be determined by your dentist or orthodontist after a thorough examination.

Invisalign aligners are designed to be comfortable to wear. They are made from smooth, BPA-free plastic, which reduces irritation to your gums and cheeks. Initially, you may experience some minor discomfort or pressure as your teeth adjust, but it should subside within a few days. In terms of speech, some patients may experience a slight adjustment period, during which they may notice a temporary change in their speech patterns. However, most people adapt quickly, and any speech changes are typically minimal.

One of the benefits of Invisalign is that the aligners are removable, allowing you to eat and drink without restrictions. However, it is recommended to remove the aligners before consuming anything other than water to avoid staining or damaging them. After eating, it is important to brush your teeth before reinserting the aligners to maintain oral hygiene.

What our clients say

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a new method of orthodontic treatment that solves most of the challenges patients have had with the more conventional method of using braces to straighten and align their teeth. Invisalign features a set of customised trays that fit into your teeth like a glove and force them into their correct positions. The trays are made from a flexible thermoplastic material called SmartTrack and are made using 3D printing.

Invisalign aligners are clear. Although not entirely invisible, they are harder to notice and fit tightly over your teeth, making them less noticeable than the brackets and wires that make up traditional braces.

At The Dentalist, we fit Invisalign aligners for each patient after assessing their needs. The aligners are designed to fit their mouth and precisely move their teeth into the right position. The aligners are comfortable and fit to snuggle in your teeth, and they are biocompatible. Once you begin treatment, we will provide you with a new set of aligners every 1-2 weeks, with each set getting you closer to your dream of having that straight and perfect smile.

Invisalign treatment in Mountsorrel is a multi-step process that must be followed carefully to achieve the best results. After going through the round of Invisalign trays, we will provide you with retainers that help protect the results by keeping the teeth in their new positions. You need to wear the retainers every night or as directed by your orthodontist at The Dentalist.

How Invisalign Can Help You Get the Perfect Smile

Invisalign applications have gradually expanded. The unique orthodontic treatment option can help to address various orthodontic problems, including spacing issues and some mild to moderate bite issues.

Some of the orthodontic procedures where we can use Invisalign include;

  • Some types of crossbite, underbite and overbite
  • Open bite
  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps in teeth

Because every case has unique factors that must be considered to determine the best course of treatment, we recommend taking advantage of our free consultation to have an orthodontist have a look at your teeth and determine if Invisalign is the best option for you.

Should you have Invisalign sets fitted, you should try to keep them on your teeth for as long as 20-22 hours per day for the best results. You should only remove them when brushing or flossing your teeth, cleaning the aligners or when eating and drinking.

Because the aligners are carefully fitted for your mouth, they have little impact on your speech. You should be able to get through the rest of your day while wearing the aligners.

What to Expect During Invisalign Treatment

Like other dental treatments, we recommend Invisalign to patients that can benefit from them. If there are other better alternatives to help you achieve that amazing smile, we will first explore those.

When you visit The Dentalist looking for that perfect smile, we will start with a dental checkup. We will take an X-ray of your mouth to determine if you have any underlying issues and check the extent of the misalignment. We can also take other images that we will later use to create the Invisalign trays.

If Invisalign is necessary, we will proceed with the preparatory work and fitting of the trays. Once you have the perfect fit, your journey to creating a straight and perfectly aligned smile will start.
