What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a type of brace for your teeth that can be used to treat mild to complex teeth straightening issues.
What is the procedure used for?
The treatment is used to correct your smile - whether you have a misaligned bite, gaps in your teeth or a crooked smile. The great thing about Invisalign is that the braces are removable and nearly invisible, plus they are custom-made to move your teeth little by little thereby keeping any discomfort to a minimum.
Who is the treatment suitable for?
In the hands of our experienced Invisalign Provider, the treatment can be used to treat most mild to complex teeth straightening issues. We'd suggest you book an appointment to see if you might be suitable.
What happens during the procedure?
Once Dr Young has confirmed you’re eligible for treatment, he will take photos, X-rays and digital scans, or a dental impression, of your teeth. He will use these to create you a bespoke treatment plan designed to get the best results. Dr Young will then order you a series of aligners to wear every day and change at home – on average every 1-2 weeks.
What are the side effects or risks?
You may experience tenderness of teeth and gums, but generally the discomfort is minimal.
What results can I typically expect?
If you don't wear your aligners for the recommended hours per day you can affect the ability to finish on time and get your desired results, so you need to make sure you wear them. Results and patient satisfaction for Invisalign is extremely high, however.
You’ll receive regular appointments at the Clinic to monitor progress and receive your new aligners. After finishing your treatment plan, retainers will be required to maintain your new smile.
