What is Invisalign?
Invisalign “aligners” are clear plastic trays that fit over your teeth. Each tray gradually moves your teeth until they are straight. Once they are fitted on your teeth they are virtually invisible.
A scan or impression is made of your mouth, this is sent to Invisalign who make a 3D computer model of your current smile.
Using the Invisalign smile design software your dentist will then straighten your teeth and design your new smile.
The “clincheck” is a fantastic opportunity for you to see and approve your new smile before you start! You can even work with your dentist to modify the result! Once you have approved your Invisalign smile simulation, the trays can be put into production.
The 1st Invisalign aligner tray is then fitted. In most cases tooth coloured “attachments” are stuck onto some of the teeth. These attachments are essential to make the teeth move in the desired way.
The Invisalign trays are changed once a week. It is very important to wear the trays for 22hrs a day, only removing them to eat, drink and clean your teeth. They don’t work in your pocket!
You will need to see your Invisalign provider every 6 to 8 weeks. Occasionally modifications are made to some of the teeth to create space, allowing crooked teeth to straighten.
When you have finished wearing all of your Invisalign trays, there is an opportunity to refine your smile or improve the bite using the “refinement” process. A few more Invisalign aligners are made to help you get an amazing result.
Many people choose to have their teeth whitened and worn/chipped teeth repaired to complete their amazing smile makeover!
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST it is essential that you wear your retainers to keep your smile straight!
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
Invisalign treatment times vary, depending on the starting condition and the goals of treatment. For simple treatment it may take as little as 3 months. The more complex the case the longer the treatment will take. Treatment times have reduced massively since the average wear per tray has changed from 2 weeks to 1 week. There are some devices such as Acceledent http://acceledent.com/home which claim to make treatment times even quicker. With Acceledent the Invisalign trays are changed every 5 days.
How much does Invisalign cost?
This will vary depending on complexity. The most complex cases can cost £4,500. However, simple cases can cost as little as £1,900. An average case of full Invisalign would cost x£ per month (Based on £4,000 total over 5 years APRx). A simple case could be as little as x£ per month ( Based on £1,900 total over 5 years APRx).
Will people know I am wearing Invisalign trays?
It depends on how close they get! Although the trays are not visible at a social distance, they may be seen if someone gets closer! Most patients need to have “attachments”, which are small tooth coloured fillings temporarily stuck to there teeth to help the Invisalign trays work properly. Again they are barely visible at a social distance.
How long do I have to keep the Invisalign on my teeth to work?
The recommendation is 22hrs per day. The less time it is worn the longer treatment will take and not all the planned movements may take place. It won’t work in your pocket!
Does Invisalign hurt?
For most people no, the treatment is very comfortable. Occasionally some people feel very slight discomfort for a few days when an Invisalign aligner is changed.
When do I have to take the Invisalign trays out?
To eat, drink (anything except water) and to clean your teeth. Otherwise they can stay in. They don’t work in your pocket!
What conditions can Invisalign treat?
As Invisalign technology has improved so has the range of conditions that it can now treat. Almost all conditions can now be treated with invisalign. There are some conditions that are not suitable or that are best treated with other appliances 1st then fisnished with Invisalign or traditional braces.
