Invisalign are a very popular removable brace system that utilises the latest in modern dental technology for clear aligners to straighten your teeth. One of the main benefits of using this system to straighten your teeth is the fact that it is completely invisible and blends in with your smile, making it a very discrete method of correcting teeth. The other main attractive benefit people also like about Invisalign is the fact that it is a removable brace – so in such occasions as public speaking or going out for a meal, you are able to discretely take them out to suit your needs.
The system comprises of a series of aligners that will need to be worn one after the other consecutively, for roughly about two weeks per aligner (the dentist will always advise how long each one needs to be worn). When you first decide to go ahead with Invisalign, impressions will be taken of your teeth and will be sent to the Invisalign laboratory. This is where they will run the Invisalign software to predict your teeth movements to get the end result. At each stage of the teeth being gently straightened, an aligner will have been made to then take your teeth to the next level of straightness. This will mean you will have a series of aligners which will gradually look different as your teeth are being straightened.
This is very much a case dependent question as it does depend on how severe your case is. For example, if your case is classed as very severe, you will require more aligners in the series to get to the new straightened position. At the free consultation the dentist will give you a rough idea for how long you can expect to be in treatment for.
This again will be case dependent as some systems are better suited for different types of cases. We offer free consultations so we can assess your needs and determine which system will be the most suitable for you.
