Invisalign® is a clear aligner system designed to help straighten out smiles. Using a patented SmartTrack material, the aligners are almost invisible and are made uniquely for you and your teeth to help produce the best results. Thanks to their ClinCheck 3D treatment planning system, Invisalign® also provides patients with a clear idea of how their smile will look after completing the treatment.
First, you will have an impression of your mouth made here at the practice. This will then be sent off to the experts at Invisalign® who will make your clear aligner trays.
Once the trays are ready, you’ll return to Ringway Dental to have them fitted. You should expect to swap out your aligner trays every two weeks or so to help ensure your teeth are moving in the right direction.
To ensure the best results you should wear your Invisalign® aligners every day, including overnight. You can, however, remove them to eat and brush your teeth.
The length of treatment will vary according to the position of your teeth at the start of the treatment. Most patients wear their clear aligners for between 6 and 18 months.
While your clear aligners shouldn’t hurt, you may experience some discomfort, especially when you first wear a new set of aligners. This is due to the pressure being exerted on the teeth in order to successfully realign them.
The main benefit of Invisalign® is straighter, better aligned teeth by the end of the treatment. One of the other major benefits is that these clear aligners are subtle and unobtrusive, meaning most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them.
