What is Invisalign?
Invisalign Weybridge consists of a clear, transparent aligner which is designed and manufactured specifically for a patient’s teeth. Each time an aligner is removed and replaced with a new set, the teeth structure starts to change and develop. This will occur until the teeth are in the prescribed alignment that the orthodontist had recommended. These invisible aligners will be changed regularly, every two weeks, to adjust the current structure of the patient’s teeth.
For those individuals who prefer an invisible look when considering braces Invisalign is highly recommended. Invisalign braces have the ability to be removed, this can be in situations such as eating and drinking. They can also be removed when a patient wants to clean them. Since the sets of aligners are made from high quality material, the aligners will work effectively to achieve the desired result.
Who is Invisalign suitable for?
At Weybridge Orthodontics we will check whether Invisalign is the appropriate method to use when meeting a patient at the first consultation. This will take a series of 2 steps to put this to test.
Step 1 will consist of an initial scan of the patient’s teeth which will usually happen at the first consultation. This will create a 3D virtual illustration of a treatment plan that will be best suitable for the patient. This will present aspects such as what movements of the teeth the treatment will entail and the final result of how it will turn out. This is also referred to as Clincheck. This will also include the duration and length of time the treatment process will take.
At step 2 the results will be able to form the suitable clear, shaped aligners for the specified patient; these are custom made. When the patient is happy to proceed with the treatment plan an initial deposit will need to be paid to produce the Invisalign aligners. This can be paid over 18-24 months through the use of monthly instalments. At Weybridge Orthodontics we also provide a fee guide for individuals to find out the prices of monthly payments, this will be available on request.
After an Invisalign treatment it is highly advised to wear a retainer, however there are several steps that can also be taken in advance. Daily brushing and flossing should be maintained as per usual; patients can also use a fluoride mouthwash if possible. It is also recommended to visit our dentist and get regular check-ups to make sure that both the gums and teeth are monitored. Another form of aftercare treatment is to maintain a healthy diet and try to avoid eating sweets and sugary drinks, to make the most of your new smile.
