Invisalign - Discreet Teeth Straightening in Clapham Junction, Battersea
Invisalign is a type of orthodontic brace that is virtually invisible that gives our patients in Clapham Junction the confidence to go about their usual daily activities without being self conscious about smiling. Unlike traditional braces the Invisalign® braces are metal free and removable, which means you can still brush and floss effectively.
This revolutionary type of treatment provided at Confidental Clinic Clapham involves a set of removable tooth shields which gently apply pressure to teeth and allow the teeth to straighten.
There are various stages involved:
During the initial visit, your dentist will help you decide on your course of treatment. They will take impressions of your teeth and send them, along with a set of precise instructions to Invisalign®.
Stage 2: Making your aligners
The impressions are sent to the Invisalign® laboratory where they are scanned and 3D computer technology will either make a 3D computer preview for you and/ or make a custom set of clear, removable aligners. The number of aligners can vary according to the extent of the correction required.
Stage 3: Fitting the first aligners
This visit will involve fitting the aligners along with any other adjustments needed at the beginning. This is a very simple and comfortable appointment. You will be given after care instructions showing you how to look after your aligners.
Stage 4: Wearing your aligners
Each Invisalign® aligner is worn for 2 weeks and you are usually provided with a sequence of aligners. The aligners are worn day and night, only being removed for eating and drinking. The treatment time can vary depending on the number of aligners provided but you will be reviewed in our dental practice every 6 weeks to monitor the progress of your treatment.
Stage 5: You've finished treatment!
Retainers are then made following completion of the alignment at our dental practice and fitted. Retainers are an important part of the treatment as they maintain your newly created smile in the correct position for many years to come. Generally, the retainers are required to be worn nightly for 6-12 months and 2-3 nights a week for every subsequent year.
