What is a clear aligner?
Invisalign clear aligners are one of the most discreet orthodontic systems available today. Virtually invisible, non-irritating and easily removable, these clear plastic trays work to straighten your teeth gently.
How does the Invisalign process work?
The process of Invisalign orthodontic treatment starts with an initial consultation with your Sarum Dental dentist who will assess your suitability. Next, digital scans of your dentition are taken so that the dental team can map out your customised Invisalign treatment plan.
Approximately, every two weeks, you will receive a new set of aligners that have been precisely crafted to move your dentition into the desired position over the course of your treatment plan, which could last up to 12 months. The aligners are to be worn at all times except for when eating and brushing your teeth.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
There are numerous advantages of choosing Invisalign most notably because the aligners are virtually invisible and discreet, comfortable and non-irritative. No one will be able to tell that you’re wearing your aligners and they won’t interfere with your daily life – you will be able to speak, eat and drink as normal and without discomfort. If you take part in contact sports, you can even remove your aligners in favour of your mouth guard.
Another benefit of Invisalign, is that the you and Salisbury dentist will be able to virtually see, by way of 3D scanning predictive technology, how your teeth will change throughout the course of treatment and the look of the final results!
