Teeth that are not in proper alignment are not only unattractive, but this misalignment can also lead to improper forces and stresses on the teeth and jaw. This additional stress can lead to fractures and grinding as well as not being able to properly clean the teeth. Sorriso design is an Invisalign provider and offers the premier way to align teeth through the use of Invisalign aligners.
What Is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® aligners are custom made clear trays that gently and gradually move your teeth to a more ideal position.
Candidates For Invisalign
Adults and teens suffering from common dental problems may be candidates for Invisalign. The aligners are clear making Invisalign the premier orthodontic option for teens and adults who are looking for a nearly invisible solution to straighten their teeth.
Benefits Of Invisalign
Invisalign handles mild to moderate tooth movement needs without any of that. The most important thing for most teens is that, as the name implies, the Invisalign trays are basically invisible. When they’re on your teeth, no one can tell, even from close range when speaking to someone. No metal bands. No wires. It’s easy to forget you’re wearing the clear Invisalign aligners because they are so comfortable.
And Invisalign is simply easy. It’s easy to eat — you just take them out. It’s easy to keep them clean — you take them out and brush them with toothpaste. It’s easy to keep your teeth clean — take out the trays and brush and floss normally.
Bottom line? Our Boutique Sorriso Design patients love Invisalign. Plus, their time required to move their teeth is usually less than with traditional braces.
What Concerns Can Invisalign Correct?
Invisalign trays treat many different types of cases, including crowding, spacing, deep bite, and open bite.
How Are The Invisalign Clear Aligners Created?
After taking a series of photographs and impressions, we work with Invisalign to develop the best plan for your specific case as well as an estimate of your time commitment. The trays are to be worn on average 22-23 hours per day for optimal results.
The Invisalign Procedure
Once Dr Juliane and her team believe Invisalign would work for you, the first step is a full dental examination and analysis of your bite using the Invisalign digital scanning system. With this information, the system creates precise 3D images of the patient’s teeth. Using these images, we will then plot out the movement required. The Invisalign system allows the dentist to preview with the patient exactly how his or her teeth will progress through the entire treatment. This information is then digitally sent to the Invisalign office in the UK. The company takes the data and creates acrylic aligner trays.
When your aligners arrive at our Boutique Sorriso Design Dental Clinic in Milton Keynes, it’s time for your next appointment. We will explain how to use the aligners, along with care instructions and other pertinent information. Then he’ll give you the first few pairs of aligner trays and you head home.
All you do is wear the aligner trays for 20-22 hours every day for two weeks. Those trays put subtle pressure on your teeth, moving them without the pain that accompanies the tightening of wires with traditional braces. After two weeks, you discard those trays and switch to the next pair. At about six-week intervals, you’ll come to see us at Sorriso Design so we can monitor your progress and give you the next series of aligners.
