Not happy with your smile and want to change it? But the issue is, you dislike the thought of bulky wires and brackets? We understand that completely. Well good news, Invisalign clear aligner technology may be the perfect solution for you. Aligner technology straightens teeth while being virtually invisible and providing you with the luxury to remove the appliance at your own discretion. Invisalign uses aligner trays which are worn for two weeks each, as each tray is designed to shift your teeth a slight way further than the previous tray, towards your straighter smile.
How does Invisalign work?The treatment consists of a series of discreet, removable aligner trays that are designed to perfectly fit your mouth. Firstly, Invisalign can fix a whole range of issues, generally from mild to moderate conditions, including overbites, underbites, crossbites, gaps between teeth, open bites and crowded teeth. In many cases, Invisalign cannot fix severe orthodontic issues and braces will be required; however, both treatments can also be paired in certain cases. The Invisalign process goes as follows: You will have an initial consultation at My Dental Care @ West End where our team will examine your mouth and make sure you are suitable for Invisalign. We will also ensure any outstanding dental treatments are completed prior to Invisalign. Once satisfied, we can begin your journey with 3D scans of your teeth and gums using the iTero Intraoral scanning system. These scans will be used to create a customised treatment plan, personalised to your smile. The plan will outline the key movements your smile will undertake to achieve your dream smile. The scans will be reviewed and sent to the Invisalign laboratory, where your custom aligners will be manufactured. Once we receive your aligners back at our dental clinic, you will be called back in. We will provide you with the first three aligners and ensure your aligners fit properly, show you how to handle your new aligners and answer any questions. You will now begin your journey and only have to visit every six weeks to receive your sequential aligners.
