Invisalign Treatment: A Clear Way to a Straight Smile
We conveniently offer in-house Invisalign treatments to our patients in our Milton surgery. Invisalign is a nearly invisible way of straightening your teeth. Treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change over every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to their final position. It’s a simple procedure:
Step 1: The Initial Consultation: We’ll discuss the issues of your teeth and explore how we can change them. We will need to take an impression of your teeth at this appointment.
Step 2: Treatment is planned: The impression is digitized so that we can work with a 3D image of your teeth and plan tooth movements. Once we have completed this process, you will be invited to approve the plan before the aligners are made.
Step 3: You wear the aligners for 22 hours per day except while eating.
More than 1.9million people across the globe have been treated with Invisalign. Invisalign aligners are removable. Unlike fixed metal braces, they allow you the flexibility of eating whatever you want by simply removing the aligners. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene.
There are 4 levels of Invisalign, paid off over the course of treatment.
- i7 – 7 sets of aligners, 14 weeks to complete.
- Light – up to 14 sets of aligners, up to 24 weeks to complete.
- Moderate – up to 30 sets of aligners, up to 60 weeks to complete.
- Full – unlimited sets of aligners.
If you’re ready for a smile that transforms your appearance, Invisalign is your answer.
Although there are many choices out there, no other treatment works as comfortably as Invisalign. As with any orthodontic treatment, once treatment is complete we will give you either fixed or removable retainers to wear so that your smile can stay straight! This is really important because if retainers are not worn, relapse is risked. This is why retention with retainers is expected for life, so as to maximise your investment and ensure you keep your new, beautiful straight smile. As an added bonus, the last Invisalign retainers we give you can be used for teeth whitening purposes.
Treatment can be given to the top or bottom, or together. For more information and answers to FAQs on Invisalign click here.
