What are Invisalign braces?

If you are unhappy with your smile and feel in need of a confidence boost, then Invisalign braces could be for you. Here at Loughborough Orthodontics, our highly qualified and experienced team are always striving for perfect results and are here to ensure you are in safe, trusted hands

What are Invisalign Braces?

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign braces require no brackets or wires. Instead, a custom-made, clear tray is moulded specifically to fit your mouth. Not only is this a far more comfortable option than traditional braces, it will likely mean less irritation to your mouth and gums.

What are the benefits of Invisalign Braces?

There are many benefits to Invisalign, the first being that the clear material means that the braces are virtually invisible. This can eliminate the embarrassment that some people feel when wearing a traditional brace, making Invisalign braces the perfect alternative. Traditional braces can also restrict your diet. It may become difficult to eat or maintain optimum dental hygiene. Fortunately, Invisalign braces are removable, meaning you can still enjoy your favourite meals.

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

The process is often much quicker than that of traditional braces. Treatment can be completed in as little as 9 to 12 months, whilst minor tooth improvements can be seen in as little as 3-6 months. We understand that many of our patients have busy lives, but we don’t believe this should stop them receiving essential dental care. That’s why we offer evening and weekend appointments to suit the needs of our private patients. And with free parking on our forecourt, you won’t need to walk far to reach us!

How does Invisalign treatment work?

After an initial consultation to check if treatment is right for you, impressions will be taken of your teeth in order to create your custom brace. You will then be given your first brace and everything you need to know about the treatment process will be explained to you. After this point, you will be required to visit our practice every 4-8 weeks for a progress check. You will receive a new tray every few weeks, which will slowly guide your teeth to the desired position.
