What is Invisalign?
The system is made up of a series of clear aligners which you change up over time. Typically patients change up to the next aligner every 7 – 14 days. One of the most popular advantages of clear braces is the fact that they simply do not interfere with you lifestyle. Because they are invisible you can choose if you want to tell anyone you are having treatment or not. Aligners are also completely smooth and comfortable to wear as they have no wires or brackets which frequently cause discomfort in patients who wear fixed metal braces.
Also because the appliance is fully removable you can take them out to eat and drink, and still enjoy all of your favourite food and beverage choices. There are no restrictions or compromises. Aligners can be kept in when drinking water, but need to be removed for all other types of drinks.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
Invisalign treatment lasts anywhere from 6 – 18 months depending on your personal requirements. As this is a relatively long time, wearing clear braces is a huge advantage, as most people don’t want to wear highly visible braces for that length of time.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

How Do I Choose The Best Invisalign Dentist?
When choosing an Invisalign provider your should look at their track record to ensure that you are choosing the best and can be assured of achieving the best possible smile for yourself. It is not recommended to choose based on offers or discounts such as Groupon promotions etc. This is because the final results you achieve will be based on the technology and the practitioner carrying out the treatment.
At your consultation appointment you will be able to see a digital simulation of your smile so you can see the results that can be achieved thanks to the ClinCheck technology simulation.
At your first treatment appointment you will have an Itero scan to take digital impressions of your teeth in order to prepare your treatment plan. This will allow your clinician to prepare a treatment plan which will show the number of aligners required in your series. When your aligners are ordered and manufactured, they will be sent direct. At your appointment you will be able to preview the use of your aligners, including insertion and removal, cleaning and dental hygiene. The appointments required will be convenient with less appointments required than when having metal braces fitted which require additional appointments for any slipped wires or brackets which need to be adjusted. Patients are frequently amazed at just how invisible clear braces actually are when first putting them on.
More than 7 million people have straightened their teeth with Invisalign worldwide, the majority of patients are adults who welcome the opportunity to straighten their teeth using invisible orthodontics. Many adults for whatever reason missed out on braces when they were younger and decided to rule out fixed metal braces in their adult years as they would not feel comfortable wearing such braces socially and professionally.
For this reason Invisalign has become the number one socially acceptable method to straighten your teeth. Many adults have chosen the technology if they feel self conscious about their smile. People often feel uncomfortable, or hide their smile or smile less as a result. Your smile is an asset and is priceless for your confidence and self esteem.
