If you want a straight smile but don’t want the traditional metal braces, Invisalign can help straighten your teeth with a series of almost invisible clear and removable plastic aligners. The results will amaze you and the near-invisible aligners will leave you wondering why you didn’t do it sooner.
Invisalign treatment includes a series of aligners made from medical grade, BPA free thermoplastic. The aligners slip over your teeth and are so clear, people barely notice them. The trays are designed using 3D computer imaging technology and the aligners are removable and convenient like a very thin sports mouthguard that is changed each treatment cycle (every two weeks). Each treatment cycle when an aligner is changed, you will be given a brand-new aligner and you will notice that your teeth will move into a slightly different position each time.
When you visit Dr Vadi she will take some photographs as well as some digital scans of your teeth using the latest 3D technology. After we have done this a treatment plan will be generated from the digital impressions and the first set of aligners created. Over the course of the treatment cycles, you will achieve the final position as agreed upon at your consultation. The entire process is monitored using the Align Technology ClinCheck® software programme, ensuring the results are precise. Invisalign can have a treatment time of anything between 6 to 24 months depending on your treatment needs and goals and during this period you will have regular reviews with Dr Vadi to monitor your progress.
Invisalign has many advantages over the traditional metal braces:
Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment and a great option to treat crowding, overbites, underbites, crossbites and gappy or crooked teeth. It is an ideal treatment option for patients wanting a mild to moderate improvement.
Like all dental treatment the cost for Invisalign treatment varies from person to person. There are many factors that can alter the final cost:
If your teeth are severely crooked this may not be the right treatment option for you.
If you are considering Invisalign treatment book a consultation appointment with Dr Vadi to discuss your desired outcome and review all the pros and cons to see if you are suitable for treatment and to discuss your options.
