How Invisalign Teeth Straightening Works

invisalign Invisalign is an effective, modern form of tooth alignment suitable for a variety of pre-existing conditions. Overbite, underbite, crossbite, teeth gaps and crowded teeth can all be remedied with the custom clear moulds that are akin to removable invisible braces. The treatment can even work for children or teenagers as a form of aiding their natural development, making it a versatile option for improving anyone’s smile and oral health.

Invisalign is perfect for those who want to keep intact the convenience of their everyday routine whilst moving towards a straighter smile. If you’re considering asking your dentist about Invisalign, this guide will inform you on how the treatment works and what to expect from it.


What to Expect on Your Invisalign Treatment Journey

Invisalign offers a comfortable and discreet alternative to braces, and the simple fitting process means you don’t need an orthodontist’s input. Your dentist will walk you through every step of the process.

Initial Teeth Straightening Consultation

At your first appointment, after your dentist has scheduled you for Invisalign treatment they will craft a unique treatment plan tailored to your needs. This involves making a digital 3D scan of your mouth to map your smile and make your first set of clear aligners.

Fitting Your Invisalign Clear Aligners

Once your teeth aligners are made, they’re immediately ready to be fitted. Your doctor will assist you with the first fitting to ensure they work as they should. From there, you’ll be able to wear them throughout the day, removing to eat and clean your teeth as needed.

Regular Check-Ups with Your Dentist

Your dentist will schedule appointments every few weeks to check your progress and provide new aligners at each new stage of alignment. This will ensure that you’re receiving the best possible teeth-straightening experience and are feeling positive and confident in the results. You can rest assured that your dentist will be thoroughly involved and available from the first fitting to your finished smile.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign clear aligners are moulded in stages to gradually and gently correct smile imperfections. Unlike traditional braces, they’re comfortable to wear and can be removed throughout the day when needed.

This means there are absolutely no restrictions while undergoing Invisalign treatment – it’s easy and convenient, but still heavily results-driven. For more information on how Invisalign treatment works, see the official guide on the Invisalign website.
