Important Things To Know About Invisalign

If you’re interested in Invisalign clear brace treatment, look no further. In today’s blog post, our orthodontists outline some of the important things you should know about this treatment, as well as what to do next if you’re looking to book in for your treatment. 

Invisalign explained

Before we start, it’s important for you to know exactly what Invisalign is: removable, clear braces, which incrementally straighten teeth. It’s ideal for teens and adults looking to create a straighter, more seamless smile. The aligners need to be worn for 20-22 hours each day and cleaned throughout to keep them – and your smile – in top condition. 

#1: The Invisalign treatment process

Invisalign treatment couldn’t be easier. Here’s a step-by-step walkthrough of what you can expect.

Step 1: Consultation – a quick but thorough assessment of your smile with our orthodontist, where we’ll be able to make sure treatment is suitable for you and answer any questions.
Step 2: 3D images – we’ll create images of your changing smile and show you the predicted outcome.
Step 3: Aligners – you’ll then have your very own Invisalign aligners created. Our orthodontists will help guide you on when you need to change pairs.
Step 4: Retainers – at the end of treatment, you’ll need to wear retainers to ensure your results last long-term. 

#2: What to expect from your results

Most patients see results in 1-2 years, though the treatment can be faster if there’s less adjustment needed. During your consultation, we’ll be able to create a picture of your expected results, as well as the changes you’ll see during treatment. You can track your progress on the handy Invisalign app, too. 

#3: Treatable cases

Invisalign clear braces are recommended for a variety of cases, though the first step is to see your orthodontist and check treatment is suitable for you. But, it’s good to know that Invisalign can help correct gaps, wonky teeth and bite problems (underbite, overbite and everything in between). And, the best news is, it’s comparable to the cost and treatment time of fixed braces.
