To straighten your smile almost invisibly, Invisalign is a revolutionary and completely transparent orthodontic treatment. Your Rainham Dental & Implant Clinic orthodontist is expertly trained to deliver one of the most discreet and comfortable ways to move your teeth into alignment. These invisible braces, or aligners, fit snugly over your teeth, to gently guide them into position. There’s no tightening process as the clear aligners gradually move your teeth into position. Invisalign also minimises the impact on your day-to-day life, as they have minimal affect on your speech and can be removed for eating.
Before you even begin treatment, a custom-made digital 3D treatment plan – a ClinCheck© – is carried out. You have the opportunity to review this, to see exactly what your teeth will look like at the end of the treatment process before you commit.
The treatment itself involves wearing a series of removable plastic dental aligners that have been specially designed for your mouth, for between 20-22 hours per day. Every one to two weeks you will move to your next aligner. Your specialist will see you every six to eight weeks to review the movement of your teeth and give you your next set of aligners. Depending on your needs and the current alignment of your teeth, you could see a straighter smile in as little as three months.
