Thinking about Invisalign?

by | Jan 6, 2019

Here at Hydean Dental Practice, we are big fans of using Invisalign to straighten your teeth.

Using impressions of your teeth, a series of custom-made clear aligners will be specifically manufactured for you. These aligners are worn in sequence, moving your teeth slowly into the desired position.

To get the best results from your Invisalign treatment, you should wear your aligners for between 20 and 22 hours a day; giving you plenty of time each day to take your aligners out for eating, drinking and brushing.

If your teeth are overcrowded, widely spaced, or do not bite together properly, Invisalign can provide an effective and discreet, solution.

A defining feature of the treatment is the unique 3D treatment plan (Clincheck®) which allows us to fully plan your treatment. You can see computer-generated images of your mouth which will show you how your teeth currently look, how they are predicted to move and what they will look like when treatment is finished. This plan can also be used to predict the length of treatment.

Once you are happy with the projected result seen in the Clincheck® the aligners can be constructed. As you wear the aligners over the weeks and months, your teeth will move gradually towards the desired final position. You will need to visit regularly so that the Orthodontist can check the progress of the treatment.

Our experienced specialist orthodontist can advise you on your Invisalign journey and give more detailed information during your consultation. And if we don’t think you’re suitable for Invisalign – and it’s not right for everyone – we can discuss other equally effective alternatives.
