Invisalign clear braces are a great alternative to fixed braces as they achieve perfectly aligned teeth without the appearance of traditional fixed braces.
Invisalign Aligners are made from clear plastic and look similar to very thin gum shields. They offer a comfortable, removable, discreet and almost invisible alternative to fixed braces. Our patients benefit can benefit from the convenience and flexibility Invisalign braces offer over conventional braces.
By using a new aligner every 2 weeks your teeth are gently repositioned, achieving your dream smile. Most treatments range from 6 – 18 months and treatment time is based on the severity of the movement required.
Your braces treatments in Kent are delivered by our Clinical Director Dr. Jan Eindfeldt who also happens to teach other dentists how to place braces!
5 Simple Steps to getting Invisalign clear braces in Kent:
Book a free consultation where asses your teeth and discuss what improvements and corrections you would like. We can estimate how long your Invisalign treatment will take and also discuss alternative straightening options with you to ensure we fit the best possible treatment for you.
At this point, if you choose Invisalign, we take a set of impressions (mould) of your teeth.
From the impressions taken of your teeth, we’re able to create an animation of not only how your teeth will look after your treatment has finished, but also how your teeth will look each step of your Invisalign journey.
Once you and your dentist are happy with the plan, we order your aligners! Your Invisalign aligners are usually fitted 2 weeks after they’ve been ordered.
Some small tooth coloured attachments may need to be fitted to some teeth to help with better tooth movement. You will be given several sets of the clear aligner trays that gently start moving your teeth. Sometimes we may have to polish the side of the teeth for better tooth movement. Each tray is worn for 2 weeks day and night, except when you are eating or drinking – it’s OK to keep the trays in when drinking water. You continue living your life as normal, rest assured that your teeth are being straightened despite your braces being barely noticeable!
The progress of your teeth gets reviewed every 6 to 8 weeks. At these reviews you will be given more aligners to wear until your next review.
When you have used up all the Invisalign aligners and the treatment plan ends, you can enjoy your new perfect smile! We will fit retainers for you to protect your new smile from moving back.
Your teeth are gently moved with each new aligner. You will feel pressure on your teeth for a few days. Some patients take a painkiller in the initial stages of the treatment when the teeth start to move.
That depends on how much tooth movement is required. It can be a little as 4 months and it can take up to 2 years or even longer for more difficult cases.
Over 2.5 million people have been treated with Invisalign all over the world with happy results.
This depends again on how much tooth alignment is required. Prices can start as low as £1500 for £37 a month plan for minor tooth corrections. The best way to find out is to call for a FREE cosmetic consultation to find out more.
