How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign in Wolverhampton – Your questions are answered!
At Claregate Dental Practice in Wolverhampton, you can trust our experts to keep your smile looking clean and bright, keep your oral health in top condition, and keep your teeth beautifully straight. Our number one teeth-straightening treatment has to be Invisalign. If you haven’t heard of it, then read on to find out how it all works and why you should consider it for the benefit of your smile.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a maker of clear (‘invisible’) aligners (also called ‘clear braces). These gently click onto teeth to help adjust them, little by little, into a perfectly straight smile. Other brands offer clear braces, but Invisalign is recognised as being one of the leading names in the orthodontic industry.
What’s so great about Invisalign in Wolverhampton?
There are lots of benefits to using clear braces:
- Clear: as their name suggests, they are almost invisible, which makes for discreet treatment
- Removable: you can take the aligners out when you need to eat and brush your teeth
- Comfortable: Unlike metal braces, there are no wires or brackets to contend with!
- Predictable: the treatment involves creating a 3D prediction of your finished smile
- Versatile: as well as being a popular adult brace, these clear braces can also be used on teens
How does Invisalign treatment work?
There are several stages to the Invisalign journey. You’ll first require a consultation at our Wolverhampton dentist, to help assess whether invisible braces are suitable for your smile. If so, we’ll then take images of your smile and show you how it will change over treatment – as well as your final results. Once you sign up, you’ll also receive your clear aligners, which you’ll need to change every few weeks. Finally, the treatment ends with retainers, to keep your smile straight.
Are clear braces expensive?
We think the perfect, healthy smile needs a little investment, but we do offer dental finance to our patients to help split the cost over time. The price of clear braces in Wolverhampton can vary, as it depends on how many sets of aligners you’ll require.
What alternatives are there?
There are lots of different types of braces, but Invisalign is one of the industry’s best-known and most reputable. Alternatives include fixed metal braces, lingual braces (fixed to the back of the teeth), and other clear braces (many of which are fixed).
