Invisalign is a clear removable tooth aligning device that dentists and orthodontists use as an alternative to a dental brace. There are many obvious advantages to wearing Invisalign, firstly the aligners are completely transparent and are much less unsightly than wire and bracket braces, making this a more opted for choice amongst adults as it is very hard to see, also the device is removable. Another reason why the aligner is opted for is that the treatment is a great deal quicker than other traditional orthodontic procedures. The alignment procedure starts with an initial consultation in which you discuss whether Invisalign is the treatment for your teeth, if it is impressions are then made of your teeth and sent off for processing. The impressions are digitized for the dentist so he can plan the movements of the teeth throughout the treatment. Bespoke aligners are then customised for your teeth and are worn for a two week period until it is time to progress onto the next set of aligners, depending on the individual and the amount of alignment required typical treatment time takes around 9 – 18 months. The aligners themselves must be work at all times except when eating and brushing, also check-ups on the aligners will be required every 4-6 weeks. At the end of the treatment the aligners should have moved your teeth into a perfectly aligned smile.
