The Invisalign® Teeth Straightening Treatment Process
Getting Assessed With a Leading Invisalign® Provider
Your journey to a straighter smile will begin with an assessment at our modern clinic here on Harley Street. During this appointment, we’ll decide whether Invisalign invisible braces are the right option for your misaligned smile.
Using the innovative iTero® scanner, we’ll take images of your teeth to determine your treatment’s path. This same technology allows us to show you a preview of how your dream smile will look after treatment with removable aligners.
How Invisalign® Aligners Work
The information gathered from your digital scans will help create removable made-to-measure clear braces. Once made, you’ll wear your new aligners day and night. The virtually invisible braces exert a small amount of pressure against your crooked or misaligned teeth. It’s this pressure that will gradually straighten them.
Your Invisalign® aligner is removable. This means you can take your aligner out while eating, brushing and flossing.
Every couple of weeks, we’ll give you a brand-new set of aligners to wear. Each new aligner takes your smile journey a step forward. The treatment time and the number of aligners needed depend on whether we’re fixing complicated dental alignment issues or performing a minor tooth correction.
Minor alignments may just straighten your front teeth. Patients receiving a more comprehensive treatment may require movements across all their teeth.
Straightening teeth with award winning Invisalign® custom made aligners means no uncomfortable adjustments. There are no metal brackets and no wires to tighten. We’ll create an attractive smile without the need for countless appointments.
After Your Treatment
Once you’ve had your teeth straightened with Invisalign®, we must ensure you keep your new confident smile. We’ll provide you with removable retainers to wear. Unlike aligners, these won’t straighten your teeth. Instead, they’ll ensure the progress you’ve made is not undone.
You’ll wear the removable Vivera®retainers until we’re happy that your misaligned or gapped teeth never slip back.
Invisalign Treatment Times
Treatment time varies and depends on your unique situation and the complexity of your case. In general, Invisalign® is slower than fixed braces but is mostly used to treat less complex situations. The average treatment timing ranges from 12 to 18 months but can be much shorter if used to resolve simpler problems. Your Invisalign® aligners are replaced about every two weeks, gradually guiding your teeth into a straighter position. You can expect to see your Invisalign®-certified orthodontist or dentist, on average, every six to eight weeks for routine adjustments and to monitor your overall progress.
