If you are considering orthodontics but hate the idea of visible, fixed, braces, then there may be a different treatment for you. It’s never too late to achieve a straight smile, therefore the Invisalign treatment may be the perfect solution for you.

With that in mind, here are a few key details that will help to inform your decision to seek the Invisalign treatment.

How Long Does Invisalign Take?

One of the biggest advantages that Invisalign has over other treatments is the fact that it comparatively fast, thanks to technological advancement. The aligners are virtually invisible and are replaced every week to match your teeth moving into their new position. Gradually you will start to see a smile you will love form as a result of the treatment.

Treatment time can be as little as 6 months or 18 months, depending on the severity of your misalignment or condition.

Three Steps to Invisalign

The whole Invisalign process is incredibly simple, thanks to the technically advanced nature of the treatment.

  1. Photos, X-rays, digital scans or dental impressions will be taken of your teeth.
  2. You will then receive a series of custom-made aligners to wear every day – these will be changed on average every 1 to 2 weeks.
  3. Progress will be monitored in appointments every 6 to 8 weeks, where you will receive new aligners.

Problems Invisalign Can Solve

Some people can be put off from an Invisalign treatment as they believe it can only be used for minor corrections. However, this isn’t the case at all. A number of issues can be treated as a result of Invisalign, as well as minor alignment issues, so this shouldn’t be an issue which puts you off treatment. This includes:

  • Crossbite
  • Overbites & Underbites
  • Spaced Teeth
  • Overcrowded Teeth
  • Widely Spaced Teeth

The straightforward nature of Invisalign means that you can reduce the discomfort that some of these conditions cause without the stress of traditional braces. It is also a practically invisible treatment, you can still eat your favourite foods, they are completely removable and the treatment schedule is completely clear. Meaning it is perfect for professionals or anyone else who may be worried about people noticing their braces.

Invisalign Treatment Choices

There are three main choices when it comes to your Invisalign treatments: Invisalign Full, Invisalign Lite and Invisalign i7. These three variations can help to meet your individual needs and produce the perfectly straight smile that you desire.

Complex orthodontics conditions are obviously better treated with the Invisalign Full treatment run. With this, you will receive as many aligners as needed to achieve the perfect result. This can last anywhere between 12 to 18 months.

Less complicated problems can be treated by Invisalign Lite. In particular, this is an ideal solution for those who need minor alignment work prior to various cosmetic work. This can include veneers, crowns and bridges. Invisalign can work alongside a more comprehensive cosmetic and aesthetic solution.
