What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a leader in revolutionary orthodontic treatment offering a very discreet teeth straightening solution. The system works by using aligners which are clear and almost completely invisible to others. The aligners are custom-made and straighten your teeth with no need for traditional brace systems which use metal wiring or bracket functionality.
The Invisalign Process
Your Invisalign Consultation:
Apex Dental offers a free Invisalign consultation in order to discuss your expectations of the treatment, and to find out if it is suitable for your needs. It is a completely relaxed appointment where we examine your teeth, talk you through the treatment and its costs and timescales, and give you the opportunity to ask as many questions as you need to.
At your next appointment with us, we will take impressions of your teeth which are sent away to be used to make a digital representation of your smile as it is now. Based on that information, your dentist will make recommendations on your treatment and plan your treatment using specialised Invisalign software.
A Virtual Treatment Plan
The plan that has been made for you can be shown on a virtual system and allows you to check you are happy with the entire process before it even begins. If you want any adjustments, we can make them at this stage.
Once you are happy with your treatment plan and it has been approved, we will make the physical aligners. The number of different aligners you need for each stage of the teeth straightening process is individual to your needs but most patients require a new set of aligners every two weeks and need to wear them for 20-22 hours a day.
Checking Each Stage
Every 6 weeks or so, you will have a progress check-up along with some new aligners. We may need to make minor adjustments, but otherwise these appointments are routine and convenient.
Towards The End Of Your Treatment
When your treatment is coming to an end we might refine your results using some extra aligners or adjustments that are included in the cost of treatment.
After your teeth have been straightened, we will provide you with retainers. There may be a fixed retainer sat behind your teeth which keeps them in their new straightened position, along with a removable retainer which you wear each night.
You'll have follow up appointments available to you for no extra cost for 2 years after treatment. During this time we will see you for check-ups and you can also speak to us about any issues with your retainers if you need to.
