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

Comfort

No sharp edges. Made of a smooth, soft finish plastic, Invisalign is custom-designed to perfectly fit the form of your gums and mouth to avoid rubbing or discomfort. Moves gradually with precision in the most comfortable sequence of adjustments.

Appearance

Invisalign aligners are virtually undetectable. There are no unsightly wires or brackets, and you can smile with confidence throughout your Invisalign treatment. There’s also no need to worry about rogue food particles becoming stuck in your braces without you realising.

Improved dental hygiene

Since you can remove your aligners to eat, brush and floss your teeth, you can maintain high levels of dental hygiene throughout the Invisalign treatment.

Fewer dental visits

Unlike traditional braces, you don’t need to visit your dentist every time an adjustment is made. You will receive several sets of aligners at a time and will only require periodic check-ups to monitor progress.

Shorter treatment time

Compared with traditional braces, Invisalign treatment delivers results faster than ever and improvements can be seen every step of the way.

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.

Invisalign Q&A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is something we’ve come to love at The Dentalist because it uses the same verbs we do. It’s fantastic, revolutionary, and challenges the traditions of orthodontics – the same things we do.

Invisalign is a fast new way to re-align crooked teeth, close gaps and cure over and underbites. It has the same function as conventional braces but without unsightly metal brackets. Invisalign is based on a series of clear plastic aligners which are less than one millimetre thick. The most exciting part about Invisalign for our patients is the fact that the aligners are removable and very discrete.

Why Invisalign is Better than Other Braces

Invisalign offers a comfortable, less intrusive orthodontic solution without brackets or wires. Custom-molded to your teeth, Invisalign aligners require fewer dental visits as they don’t need regular tightening like conventional braces.

They are virtually invisible, removable, and won’t interfere with eating. Consider Invisalign for a discreet and comfortable teeth straightening experience.

Digital impressions

Invisalign is a tailored orthodontic treatment that begins with digital scans to visualize and plan your smile transformation.

These scans are used to create custom-fit aligners that gradually shift your teeth into place. We’ll provide a timeline for wearing the aligners, which are thin, clear, and barely noticeable during daily wear. Unlike traditional braces, they’re less intrusive and won’t disrupt your routine.

Better dental hygiene

You must maintain good dental hygiene even as you work on getting a better and straighter smile. With braces, that means more time in front of your mirror with your floss, trying to fish out debris and plaque between the teeth and around and inside the braces.

With Invisalign, you can remove the aligners and continue your normal dental routine without using special equipment or additional time. You can also brush the inside and outside of the aligner relatively easily.

We offer Invisalign in Leicester, Mountsorrel, Loughborough and across the Midlands!
