Invisalign is a series of Aligners (retainers) that are clear, discrete and effective. Firstly, the sole purpose is to align and straighten the wearer’s teeth. Being one of the most invisible solutions on the market, it’s no surprise to read of their meteoric rise in the last 10 years. Many places in the southeast claim to be ‘the best Invisalign in London’ or ‘the best Invisalign in Essex’.
Both claims you should be wary of without proper research.
Invisalign is not only a product but a brand, created in California by Align Technology, they offer a discreet alternative to traditional metal braces. To be worn for at least 20 hours a day one of the many benefits of choosing Invisalign is that they are removable. Although the time they are removed should be kept to a minimum it makes eating and cleaning much easier in comparison to its metal alternative.
Before your care pathway is agreed, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth to check they are fit for Invisalign. Unfortunately, in some cases, Invisalign is not possible and a traditional brace will be required.
Once confirmed and treatment plan is agreed your first course of aligners will be made. As you progress through treatment the aligners will slowly move your teeth to the desired positions. Initially, you may experience some discomfort, all this is very normal and will gradually wear off after the first few weeks.
Treatment times vary from case to case, depending on complexity. At Simply Teeth your goals and concerns will be taken into account and we make sure to be upfront with treatment length. Be aware that the agreed treatment length is subject to change. Teeth can be a challenge to work with and don’t always move as expected.
Regular check-ups will be required, it allows your dentist to keep an eye on your teeth. At these appointments, you may be informed you need Invisalign refinements. Small adjustments that are needed to achieve your perfect smile.
Eventually, after treatment you will be issued a retainer to be worn at night. This keeps your teeth in place, eventually you will have to replace these too.
