Everything You Need to Know About Invisalign in South East London

Invisalign aligners are an incredibly effective way to straighten your smile. They are comfortable, clear, removable aligners that can straighten your teeth to perfection in less time than traditional braces.

Are you thinking of straightening your smile with Invisalign in South East London? Here are some tips to ensure you get the best possible results.

See a simulation of your new smile before you start treatment

During your consultation at CBC Dental Studio, we will take digital scans of your mouth. From there, we will create a 3D simulation of what your smile could look like post-treatment.

These unique digital scans create an extremely accurate picture of your teeth, which makes creating your aligners a stress-free process.

Clear aligners

One of the most popular things about Invisalign in South East London Is its appearance – or lack thereof! Many people are self-conscious about needing orthodontic treatment, and whilst traditional metal braces are effective, they aren’t too discreet.

Invisalign is the perfect solution for people of all ages looking to straighten their teeth without anyone noticing. Made of SmartTrack medical-grade plastic, the aligners are transparent and almost completely undetectable when worn.

Your aligners are removable

As well as being nearly invisible, your Invisalign aligners are also removable! This means no food stuck between brackets and wires. Plus, you can take them out to brush and floss your teeth.

Invisalign works using multiple aligners

Once we have taken your impressions, we will create multiple aligners of different sizes. You will change these throughout your treatment.

As you switch them around every two weeks, they gradually move your teeth towards the position outlined in your treatment plan.

You need to wear them for the right amount of time every day

Once you have your Invisalign aligners, you must remember to wear them for at least 22 hours per day. This is a vital way of ensuring your treatment is successful – forgetting to wear them for the right amount of time could delay your results.

You will need to keep your aligners safe (and clean) when you aren’t wearing them

We will give you a plastic case to store your aligners in when you take them out to eat or drink.

As time goes on, you might start forgetting to store them properly. Leaving them lying around can cause bacteria build-up and risk damaging or warping the plastic, so be sure to keep them in their case.

Treatment times can vary from patient to patient

Invisalign braces tend to straighten your teeth in less time than others. Bear in mind that the length of your treatment will always depend on the severity of your misalignment.

The average treatment duration is around one year. Despite this, it could take as little as six months or up to a year to see results from Invisalign.

You might experience some discomfort

Many patients think Invisalign is more comfortable than other orthodontic solutions. The smooth plastic aligners mean you have no chance of catching your gums or tongue on sharp brackets and wires.

Despite this, you may still feel some soreness or pressure when wearing them as they start to move your teeth. Over-the-counter painkillers like ibuprofen are usually sufficient for managing this.

Straighten your smile, and keep it that way!

Once your treatment is complete, you won’t use your Invisalign braces as a retainer. However, we will advise the most suitable retainers for you, depending on your treatment and misalignment.

They work similarly to your aligners, consisting of a clear plastic mouthguard. You should wear your retainer every night to prevent your teeth from moving back to their original position.
