What is Invisalign in St Albans?
Invisalign could be argued as the largest brand provider of clear aligners worldwide, and the brand we happen to use at our clinic in St Albans. Invisalign is so popular in fact, that many patients may believe that ‘Invisalign’ is the official treatment name for clear aligners.
Am I eligible for Invisalign?
During an initial consultation, our dental healthcare professionals will work with you to decide whether clear aligners are right for you. If you are a patient who is suffering from misaligned teeth, an overbite, or even problem spacing, Invisalign could help you. Patients who may lean more towards this discreet form of orthodontics may wish for an invisible brace, that produces effective and long lasting dental results.
A flexible alternative
Many of our patients may have busy work and social lives. Invisalign is a form of orthodontics that can work around your hectic schedule. Invisalign aligners are removable, meaning they can be taken out for important life events, they are also extremely easy to clean, and when worn they are very hard to detect by others!
How does Invisalign work?
Despite their undeniable popularity, many patients may be unsure of how these clear aligners produce effective and long lasting results. The transparent plastic trays are created using a digital, three-dimensional scanning machine, the trays are produced by Invisalign, and then sent back to our clinic.
I’ve received my clear aligners, now what?
Once our clinic has received your clear aligners, your treatment process can begin. The digital machine we use predicts the expected treatment time, as well as the exact number of aligner trays required. Once you start wearing your trays, they must be replaced every few weeks, in order to slowly encourage the teeth to move into their desired positions.
How to maintain your results
Once the treatment process is completed, many of our patients may be wondering how to maintain their new smile. After you have achieved your desired results, we will provide you with a retainer, this ensures your teeth stay in the same position when worn as prescribed by your attending dentist.
