Invisalign: Our Patient Stories

How Do Invisalign Braces Work?

The Invisalign brace treatment works by straightening your teeth, without anyone knowing that you’re even having treatment! 

Invisalign braces use clear or ceramic aligners, brackets and braces.  This means that your braces aren’t instantly obvious unless you decide to tell people of course! This is why Invisalign braces are a popular choice for adults who want to straighten their teeth without compromising on their smile. Invisalign braces use a system that is virtually invisible in order to straighten teeth. 

Here at Dental Solutions, we use an iTero Intraoral Scanner - some of the latest dental technology. This enables our dentists to take 3D impressions of your teeth and gums easily, safely and without the need for messy putty impressions!

The iTero scan should take around 5-10 minutes. After this, you will be able to immediately see on screen just how your teeth will move into place during your Invisalign brace treatment. You'll also be able to see how they will look afterwards. The iTero scan ensures that your aligners will be the perfect fit for your teeth during every stage of the process. This includes the retainers you'll be provided with after treatment for your new smile is complete. 

Following treatment for your Invisalign braces, a set of clear aligners are custom-made to fit your new teeth position. They look like thin, clear gum shields, which most people won’t even notice that you are wearing. We regularly treat patients aged 16 to 60, so age is no barrier to Invisalign brace treatments, so long as you are dentally fit to start treatment!

How do you know if you qualify for Invisalign?

Invisalign in Warrington is a fantastic way of transforming the appearance of your smile without everyone knowing, but it isn’t a solution that’s suitable for everyone. So how do you know if you’re likely to be eligible for Invisalign? Here’s a general list of criteria:

  • You must have all your adult teeth
  • You’re old enough
  • You have good oral health (with no gum disease)
  • You don’t require very complex orthodontics
  • You don’t have a lot of missing teeth

Your dentist will be able to go through the set of criteria with you during your initial appointment and will thoroughly examine your teeth to make sure Invisalign would be the best fit for you and your smile. In cases where Invisalign wouldn’t be your best match, we will work hard to find a suitable alternative to get you the smile you want.

How does Invisalign compare to traditional braces?

There’s a reason why traditional braces have remained as popular as they have for so long, but with Invisalign in Warrington becoming more and more popular, it’s worth knowing how the two treatments differ:

  • Invisalign doesn’t use any metal wires or brackets but instead uses a soft aligner system that is bespoke to your teeth at every stage of the journey
  • Invisalign is removable, so you can eat and brush your teeth more easily
  • Invisalign is typically more comfortable to wear
  • Invisalign can transform your smile in a shorter time frame compared to traditional braces

Of course, it’s worth noting that traditional braces can be used to help with more complex orthodontic issues, whereas Invisalign is better suited to simple issues. Your dentist will therefore always recommend what’s best for your specific needs.

Our Invisalign Braces Package Includes:

  • Invisalign brace treatment starts from just £1,250 (for a single arch using the i7 system).
  • Free retainer at the end of your Invisalign brace treatment to keep your teeth beautifully straight.
  • Free teeth whitening at the end of your Invisalign brace treatment to help add that extra sparkle and polish – the perfect finishing touch!
  • We also offer 0% interest-free credit across 10 months. This affordable treatment starts from just £125 per month, which works out at just £4.10 per day!

Invisalign FAQs

 

There are three main types of Invisalign braces that we use at Dental Solutions. During your consultation, your appointed dentist will advise you on the best system to meet your needs.

Invisalign Full

This is the most commonly used course of Invisalign brace treatment here at Dental Solutions. We provide as many aligners as needed to achieve your desired result, Invisalign Full is used to treat the more complex orthodontic conditions. On average, treatment time can range from 12 to 18 months but differs from person to person.

Invisalign Lite

Providing for less complex alignment problem cases, Invisalign Lite uses a fixed number of aligners to correct small discrepancies towards an improved smile. It is also ideal for those who need the positioning of their teeth adjusted and straightened before cosmetic work such as veneers, crowns or bridges - Invisalign provides a great solution to enhance the cosmetic/aesthetic solution.

Invisalign i7

The latest addition to the range of Invisalign service solutions, comprising of a typically shorter treatment time than the standard Invisalign course. This was developed for those people who need minor dental corrections. This could be treating slight overcrowding cases or perhaps that single annoying crooked tooth that has always been an eyesore in photos. It has also been used in cases when there has been previous orthodontic treatment and relapse has been very minor- Invisalign i7 can prove to be a useful solution.

You might notice a slight achy feeling in your teeth after having Invisalign braces fitted. For a couple of days after each change of aligner, you might notice sensitivity or aches as your teeth move into their new positions. Usually, this is nothing too severe and any aches or pain can be treated with painkillers, such as paracetamol.

When wearing Invisalign braces, you should remove them at mealtimes and only drink water.  One of the huge benefits of having Invisalign braces is that you can remove them at mealtimes. This means you are not restricted in what you can eat or drink, unlike traditional metal braces. Before you replace your aligners, you should brush your teeth so as not to cause any damage or discolouration.

In the days following your Invisalign brace treatment, you might find that you have a lisp for a few days. This is normal as you become used to the feel of the aligners in your mouth. It feels more noticeable to you than it actually is and you’ll soon notice that your speech adjusts as you get used to wearing your new braces. 

You will need to see your own hygienist or visit our hygienist team here at Dental Solutions prior to your initial scan or impressions. Even the slightest amount of plaque can hamper the efficiency of your Invisalign brace treatment. We also recommend a visit to your hygienist during and immediately after treatment to ensure that your teeth are staying clean and that you are brushing them correctly.
