Invisalign is a ‘clear’ way of straightening your teeth without the need for traditional braces. Aligners which are transparent and removable are worn by the patient on a daily basis to gradually shift the teeth into the desired position. No wires, no brackets, just an aligner which is practically unnoticeable. Invisalign will help you to achieve a confident, no fuss smile.
Invisalign in Hertfordshire can be carried out by the dental team at Bow House. Dental aligners are custom made to every patient to ensure the right fit and extra comfort for our patients in Hertfordshire. Invisalign aims to give patients the confidence to achieve their dreams of a beautiful smile, and allows them to do this in a subtle, inconspicuous way.
How does Invisalign work?
The patient wears each set of aligners for about two weeks. They will need to be removed in order to eat, drink, brush and floss; otherwise they stay in place for the rest of the day.
Each week there will be a small but noticeable movement in your teeth position, and your dentist will require you to have a check-up every 6-8 weeks, depending on your progress. Invisalign in Hertfordshire is a fairly straightforward treatment, with most patients only needing between 12 and 30 aligners before the treatment is completed.
What do I need to get started?
An initial exam of the patient’s teeth is necessary to determine your treatment plan. X-rays and photos are taken so that a complete diagnosis can be given that day. If treatment is indicated, an appointment for a scan can be scheduled as soon as possible. The scan helps the dentist to create a perfect fit aligner. Patients usually receive their first aligners within 5 or 6 weeks.
