The Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign is an ingenious solution to re-align your teeth. It provides an alternative to annoying metal braces, which many find uncomfortable, embarrassing to wear as an adult and a visual eyesore. Not to mention they make it hard to eat certain foods. Invisalign returns the feeling of confidence to your smile, even before the treatment has finished.

Invisalign has helped over 4 million smiles since 2000. Used by celebrities like Katherine Heigl and Gisele Bundchen, it’s a safe and convenient method that delivers fantastic results. Clinically proven to straighten teeth, it improves your smile without anyone even noticing.

So how does Invisalign work?


It works by gradually making your teeth move into a certain position through a series of plastic trays similar to mouth guards or retainers. For optimum results, you need to wear the aligners for 20-22 hours a day. This allows you time to take them out when eating and drinking.

Sometimes dentists use Invisalign attachments (small tooth coloured buttons) to help move them in a particular direction. These affixed bumps or wells help the aligner grip the tooth to achieve the desired tooth movement.

Invisalign uses state-of-the-art ClinCheck software to map the journey your smile will take during the course of the treatment. Your dentist uses this to plan out your aligners, and show an idea of what the finished result could look like. There are multiple options for your dentist to recommend, including the original Invisalign, or Invisalign Lite and Invisalign i7 for smaller problems, to cater for your individual needs.

Each aligner is worn for around two weeks, before moving onto the next one. The teeth move little by little into the final position. There is no need to visit the orthodontist in-between changing aligners, unlike traditional braces that need constant tightening and attention. The gradual movement of the teeth means less time spent at the dentist, and more time smiling carefree.

After your treatment with Invisalign has finished, your dentist will either fit you with a fixed retainer or a removable retainer to wear at night time, in order to preserve your new smile.

Preparation

Invisalign uses an imaging system to create a 3D depiction of the client’s mouth. A dentist then plans the treatment using this image to simulate the desired position and outcome for each tooth and maps how the mouth should progress over a number of weeks.

Procedure

The aligners are made from transparent polycrystalline alumina, a material developed by Nasa. It is strong yet flexible and extremely clear, which means they are virtually undetectable by sight. The aligners put gentle sustained pressure on specific teeth, moving them into a new position to appear straighter. The series of different aligners controls the order of which teeth are targeted, and by how much force.

Aftercare

The aligners must be worn for between 20 to 22 hours every day. The remaining 2-4 hours allows the wearer to remove them in order to eat, drink and brush their teeth as normal. This flexibility to take out the braces means they don’t get in the way of your life. Added to the fact that the aligners are comfortable to wear, they are also discreet - no-one will notice and you’ll soon forget you’re wearing them yourself!

Cost

Prices can start from only £1,500 for shorter, simpler treatments, but the cost varies greatly as you would expect with a uniquely personalised treatment. The average price you can expect to pay is £2,500. Many dental clinics offer the option to spread out payments, meaning Invisalign is affordable whatever your budget.
