How To Get Straight Teeth With Invisalign

Your guide to Invisalign Braces in Wolverhampton

Have you heard of Invisalign? Then you’ll know that it’s one of the best ways to straighten teeth and produce a beautiful smile that you’ll love to share. In this post, our expert dentist in Wolverhampton will talk through Invisalign treatment and highlight its many benefits, helping you make a firm decision about your braces that’s right for you.

Step 1: Your Invisalign Consultation

You’ll need a consultation here at our Wolverhampton dental practice to ensure you’re dentally fit. If your teeth need some work, or you’ve let the dental routine slide, you could be facing some pre-brace treatments to get your teeth back on track. Our dentists will discuss all this with you to ensure you know what’s involved and so you can make the best choices for your smile.

Step 2: iTero Scan

Our dentists can take X-rays of your smile and create digital impressions to then build a predictable treatment timeline, finishing with your anticipated results. It’s a great way to help you visualise each element of your treatment, and shows you how your teeth will move into place over time. We call it ‘trying your smile on for size’ because the 3D images are so realistic, it’s like looking into the future!

Step 3: Invisalign Clear Aligners

Now the treatment begins! This stage is all about you caring for your Invisalign braces, and swapping sets every few weeks to keep teeth on their treatment journey. Invisalign is known for being:

  • Comfortable, removable and easy to wear – you’ll probably forget you even have them in!
  • Clear in design – they’re known for being virtually invisible, and others may not notice you’re undergoing treatment.
  • Easy to clean and store when not using – which are ideal for busy lives and teenagers, too.
  • Perfect for kids – parents can relax, as a dot indicator on each aligner ensures they’re being worn for the right amount of time.
  • Easily tracked – use the My Invisalign app to monitor your smile’s progress and, of course, check in with our team of dentists as and when needed.

Step 4: Aftercare

Once your smile is beautifully straightened, you’ll want to keep it that way. The secret is retainers, which you’ll need to wear as directed by our Wolverhampton dentists. In most cases, our patients can eventually cut down to night-time wear only, making the process that bit easier.

Step 5: Enjoy your new straight teeth!

Keep on top of your oral health and attend regular check-ups at our Wolverhampton dental practice to ensure your teeth stay beautifully straight. Our top dentists can advise you on toothpaste and brushes to try, cleaning techniques and even health, lifestyle and dietary advice – like stopping smoking and cutting out sugar.
