What is Invisalign treatment?

platinum providersInvisalign, as the name suggests, are invisible aligners that are made from a flexible and clear acrylic material, making the straightening process discreet and almost invisible!

They can fix most minor orthodontic issues for those who are conscious about the way their smile looks.

How does the Invisalign treatment process work?

Your oral specialist will give you a set of aligners, which are to be worn in their numbered stages as your teeth gradually straighten.

The stages and shape of your aligner will be custom-made to match your current mouth shape and the teeth you want to achieve.

You will wear each set of aligners for around 22 hours a day, for 2 weeks, before moving on to the next stage.

How do I take care of my teeth and aligners during treatment?

Because Invisalign aligners are removable, cleaning your teeth and maintaining oral hygiene couldn’t be easier.

Ensure that you brush your teeth at least twice a day as well as floss daily to help keep your mouth and teeth strong and healthy.

It is also important to remember to clean the aligners themselves.

The best way to do this is to brush them and rinse them in warm water.

Our dentists will provide you with cleaning tablets that you can use to help keep your aligners as clean as possible.

In order to ensure the best results, brush your teeth after each meal before re-inserting the aligners.

What happens when the treatment is complete?

If you have received orthodontic treatment of any kind you will be advised to use a retainer to help prevent your teeth from shifting back to their original position.

This will depend on your individual case, and our Invisalign specialists Dr Rifai and Dr Marshall will advise on the best aftercare procedure for you.
