Invisalign Aligners

Your Invisalign treatment will start with a free assessment with one of our Invisalign clinicians. We scan your mouth using our iTero scanner and discuss your personal goals for your smile. We then show you, using our scanner how we expect your teeth to move and what we expect your smile to look like once treatment is complete.

If you decide to proceed with the treatment once you have reviewed the plan with one of our clinicians, we will arrange for a set of bespoke Invisalign aligners to be made just for you. You’ll wear each clear and comfortable aligner for two weeks, before moving on to the next one in your series of aligners. As each is slightly different from the last, they will move your teeth gradually into the desired position. During treatment, you will visit us periodically – usually every two months – so we can monitor your progress and provide you with your next set of aligners.

Invisalign Treatment Path

The Process: Invisalign clear aligners are suitable for treating slight overcrowding to more complex straightening issues. Once your orthodontist has confirmed that you are eligible for treatment it is a very straightforward process. Your orthodontist will create a 3D treatment plan using our iTero scanner.

Fitting: Custom made to fit snugly over your teeth Invisalign clear aligners are made from a strong material to withstand any bending or cracking. The aligner is trimmed to fit your exact gum line, they are easy to put in and take out too. They are virtually invisible when over your teeth and many find them more comfortable to wear than traditional braces.

Wearing: Life continues as normal with Invisalign, so it is easy to wear them for the recommended 20-22 hours a day. Because the aligners are removable, you can easily take them in and out to continue enjoying the food you love without any restrictions. Your teeth can also be cleaned as normal. You should clean your teeth before you put your aligner back in to prevent food from being trapped against your teeth for a prolonged period. For those who participate in contact sports, Invisalign clear aligners can be removed before you play too.

Adjusting: You will change your Invisalign clear aligner every 1 to 2 weeks. They are so easy to put in that you will be able to do this at home and simply visit the practice every 6 to 8 weeks to check the progress and health of your teeth. You will also collect the next set of aligners to wear. Each aligner is designed to gently push your teeth into their new position.

Removing: On completion of your treatment, when you have worn each of the aligners provided by Invisalign, your teeth will be in their new position and you will have the smile you desire. There is no removal process as such as the aligners are removable at any point. You will be required to wear a retainer for a few hours a day to retain your new smile.
