How Does Invisalign® Work?

Invisalign® departs from the conventional approach to teeth straightening, avoiding fixed brackets and wires by utilising clear aligners. These aligners are tailor-made to suit your mouth, providing the flexibility to be removed for eating, drinking, and maintaining oral hygiene through brushing and flossing.

When worn, these clear aligners are virtually invisible, making them discreet during treatment. Most individuals won’t even notice that you’re undergoing the process. Throughout the treatment, you’ll wear a series of clear aligners, each contributing to the gradual repositioning of your teeth until they reach their final straightened position.

What To Expect When Having Invisalign®

Your Invisalign journey, straighten your teeth in 4 simple steps. If you have any specific questions about Invisalign® or would like to book in for a free consultation please contact us today.

Step 1

Attend Your Free Consultation

Embarking on the Invisalign journey begins with a complimentary, no obligation-free Invisalign® Smile Assessment at one of our clinics.

Following the assessment, you’ll receive a personalised treatment plan, outlining the estimated duration and associated costs.

Step 2

Invisalign Treatment Start

After the free consultation, the next step of the Invisalign journey is to book in for a full clinical examination to confirm your suitability for treatment. For example a full check up or hygiene visit may be recommended before you can start to have your teeth straightened depending on your oral health.

We will take clinical photographs of your teeth and a digital scan of your mouth, which is then submitted to Invisalign® (so they can manufacture your personalised clear aligners).

These will usually be returned to us within 1-2 weeks for you to collect your Invisalign® trays and for you to begin your journey to straight teeth.

Step 2

Step 3

Invisalign Aligner Collection and Fitting

The eagerly anticipated phase of your Invisalign journey is here! Your tailor-made Invisalign® aligners are prepared for you to collect. We’ll schedule an appointment to guide you through the fitting process, instruct you on the daily wear duration (typically only removed for eating, drinking, and oral hygiene), and provide comprehensive information about your personalised teeth straightening journey.

You’ll receive a series of aligners to wear sequentially, and during your regular interval appointments (every 6-8 weeks), you’ll be supplied with the next set of aligners. This pattern continues until you reach your final aligner, culminating in a conclusive review appointment to thoroughly assess your teeth and underscore the significance of using retainers.

Throughout each stage of your journey, our amiable team is readily available to address any inquiries or concerns you may have.

FAQs on Invisalign

Invisalign’s clear aligners offers a discreet method to align your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always desired. We can meticulously plan your entire Invisalign treatment, utilising advanced 3D computer imaging technology to map the journey from the initial position of your teeth to the desired final alignment.

Following this, we craft a customised sequence of Invisalign clear aligners designed exclusively for your teeth, gradually repositioning them. Each aligner is worn for 1-2 weeks before being succeeded by the next in the sequence, progressively advancing the teeth toward their ultimate alignment. The duration of your Invisalign treatment is determined by your dentist, taking into consideration your unique needs.

Invisalign’s clear aligners are virtually undetectable, offering a discreet solution that few people will notice, seamlessly blending into your lifestyle and daily activities. The transparency of Invisalign therapy makes it a natural choice. Moreover, because these aligners are removable, you have the freedom to eat and drink whatever you desire during the treatment.

You can easily take out the aligners for regular brushing and flossing, ensuring proper dental hygiene and maintaining fresh breath. Unlike conventional fixed dental braces with metal brackets and wires, Invisalign eliminates the need for frequent dentist visits for adjustments in most cases.

Utilising advanced 3D computer imaging technology, you can preview virtual outcomes and receive a comprehensive treatment plan. This enables you to visualise how your teeth will appear after the completion of the treatment.

Invisalign clear aligners facilitate controlled teeth movement by applying precise adjustments in strategic locations. Unlike conventional braces, Invisalign treatment not only governs the extent of movement with each aligner but also dictates the timing of the movement. Consequently, specific teeth are selectively allowed to shift at each stage, aligning with the prescribed treatment plan.

This precision in force delivery establishes an effective system that guides teeth into their correct positions.

Invisalign clear aligners are crafted from a robust, medical-grade thermoplastic material exclusively designed for the Invisalign treatment system. These aligners are meticulously tailored to fit over your teeth, providing a custom-made solution for your unique dental needs.

One significant advantage of Invisalign is the reduced frequency of dental visits compared to traditional braces.

Typically, review appointments are scheduled every 6-8 weeks, and these appointments are notably shorter since there are no wires or brackets to adjust. During these sessions, the dentist assesses the progress of your teeth and provides the next series of aligners. The frequency of visits will be tailored to your individual needs, with guidance from your treating dentist.

The total treatment duration is personalised based on your specific needs and the complexity of your case. Generally, treatment spans from 3 to 18 months (with confirmation provided during the clin-check stage). During the complimentary consultation, your dentist will provide an estimate of the expected duration of your treatment.

Upon the insertion of a new Invisalign aligner, some individuals might encounter brief, mild discomfort for the initial days of each new treatment stage. This is entirely normal and is often characterised as a gentle pressing sensation. It indicates that the aligners are actively working, slowly repositioning your teeth to help you achieve your desired results. Typically, this discomfort subsides within a few days.

Closing gaps between teeth is typically a straightforward process with Invisalign clear aligners. Your Invisalign dentist can evaluate whether Invisalign treatment is suitable for your needs, including addressing any gaps in your teeth. Through the Invisalign Smile Visualisation, you can preview how your new smile will appear after the completion of the treatment.

The temporomandibular joint, commonly known as TMJ, is a crucial point in the jaw. Individuals experiencing TMJ-related concerns may encounter various jaw joint issues, some of which may be influenced by appliances and treatments like Invisalign clear aligners. Others may see improvement, remain stable, or potentially worsen. It’s advisable to arrange an appointment with your Invisalign dentist to assess the impact of your TMJ condition on your treatment.

Similar to other teeth straightening treatments, the cost of Invisalign is determined by the complexity of your case and the predicted duration of treatment.

During the early stage of Invisalign, a 3D digital scan is conducted to ascertain the necessary teeth movements for straightening. This scan guides the determination of the number of aligners needed to achieve the desired results, with each aligner typically worn for 1-2 weeks before progressing to the next.

Invisalign is categorized into three main types:

  1. Invisalign Express (7 aligners for both top and bottom) – £1,175.00
  2. Invisalign Lite (14 aligners for both top & bottom) – £2,975.00
  3. Invisalign Full (unlimited aligners for both top & bottom) – £3,575.00

Your dentist will assess your teeth and advise you on the specific Invisalign category that best suits your needs.
