This unique tooth straightening system is ideal for patients who want flexibility with their treatment. Typically, to achieve the best results possible, you will need to wear your Invisalign aligner for up to 22 hours per day but you have the choice to remove it for those all-important occasions.
An aligner is similar to a mouth guard; however, it is completely transparent so is barely noticeable to others.
When you first attend Meadows Dental Care for Invisalign treatment we will take impressions of your teeth so that our laboratory team can create your first set of aligners. Thereafter, we will provide you with new aligners every fortnight, each one being expertly created to encourage the gentle movement of your teeth.
Invisalign can be used to treat a variety of orthodontic issues and should be removed for cleaning and eating.
Unlike other orthodontic treatments, your natural teeth will not require extensive preparation prior to Invisalign treatment and you control how much or how little you wear the appliance.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign’s are virtually invisible as the patented system does not use wires or brackets. Invisalign braces are barely noticeable whilst working hard to effectively straighten your teeth.
They are also very comfortable and more pleasant than traditional braces. The transparent aligners are custom made for a uniquely comfortable fit and are very flexible to move easily within your mouth. They are also removable so you will not find it a problem or issue to brush your teeth or eat comfortably during treatment time.
Although treatment time depends on each individual case, on average patients wear their aligners for between six to twelve months. Once the treatment has ended, we will give you a retainer so that you can maintain the new position of your teeth.
The cost of Invisalign treatment varies depending on each individual case. Treatments usually start from about £1,500 and can reach up to £5,000 depending on the type of Invisalign aligners you may need and the complexity of your dental issues.
