What is Invisalign, and How Does it Work?


At your first consultation, our orthodontics team will explain how the Invisalign treatment will work for you. This includes the different options for treatment, how long until you can expect to see results, and the costs involved. Our team will examine your teeth and show you how your teeth and bite look and function currently, and how everything will move throughout every stage of the Invisalign treatment.

Our Harley Street dental treatments consist of advanced technology to achieve the best possible smile for our patients. We will begin every Invisalign treatment plan by creating custom-made clear plastic aligners to perfectly fit our patients’ teeth. Using advanced 3D technology, we take images and moulds of your teeth to create 3D scans, which can then be used to create your uniquely fitted set of aligners.

To ensure the treatment is most effective, you will need to wear each aligner in the series for approximately 2 weeks, in order. As you wear each aligner, you'll notice that your teeth are being softly moved to give you your ideal smile. Your orthodontist will tell you when you can move to the next Invisalign aligner.

Depending on the unique needs of our patients and the amount of time the removable retainers are worn daily, complete treatment is generally achieved between 6 and 15 months. For quick and best results, patients are advised to wear their set of aligners for a minimum of 22 hours per day.

The Invisalign braces should only be taken out to eat, drink and clean. Unlike more traditional fixed braces, Invisalign aligners are removable and invisible, and focus on teeth straightening with a lower level of pain.

How can Invisalign Help?


Overbite/Overjet

When a patient's upper set of teeth protrude past the bottom set of teeth, this is referred to as an overbite. This can cause a gap in the middle of your smile when biting down. This can be caused by a few uncontrollable causes, but with Invisalign braces this can be treated effectively. As a bonus, this treatment time is shorter and less invasive than treatment using traditional metal braces.

Underbite

An underbite means that when you bite your teeth together, your bottom set of teeth are in-front of your upper set. When children experience this orthodontic problem, it is common for the jaw to correct its placement as they grow up. Adults, however, require treatment to correct this type of bite. Invisalign works to gradually move the teeth and restructure your bite and can successfully fix an underbite.

Crossbite

This refers to when the teeth are on the inside when they should be on the outside. This can sometimes cause aesthetic concerns, but is primarily a problem regarding oral health, a crossbite can create further issues if left untreated. It is always worth opting for your free Invisalign consultation, where you will receive a full and thorough examination for your teeth and bite.

Overcrowding

Overcrowding happens when there is an inadequate amount of room for your teeth either in the top or bottom jaw, or both. This is commonly caused by either the positioning or sizing of the individual's teeth and mouth. By having a mouth that is overcrowded, other issues like overlapping or crooked teeth can develop. By utilising this complex and effective process, Invisalign treatment can eliminate overcrowding in your mouth.

Unevenly Spaced Teeth

One of the most common problems that affects many of us are unevenly spaced teeth. This common issue can easily be alleviated with invisible braces. Invisalign aligners can change the spacing between your teeth, providing an improved alignment and better harmony between the upper and lower sets of teeth in your mouth.

Gaps Between Teeth

Another potential issue you may have, is noticeable gaps between the teeth. This condition, also known as a diastema, is a very common dental problem. There are many reasons why a gap can develop in your smile. Some of the reasons could be down to the size of the jawbone causing missing or undersized teeth, loss of teeth due to trauma or gum disease, or even bad habits such as thumb sucking or an incorrectly developed swallowing reflex.

Commonly when a tooth is lost most dentists often recommend restorative dentistry treatments such as a bridge, which can damage the surrounding teeth, or a dental implant, which can be a risky and invasive treatment. An orthodontist is more likely to focus on closing significant gaps without needing to resort to these invasive treatments. Invisalign aligners can strategically be used to slowly move your teeth until the gaps become less noticeable, and eventually become nearly impossible to spot.
