Clear Braces Treatment in Derby with Invisalign

Invisalign™ treatment employs custom made invisible braces alongside advanced computerised technology to realign and straighten teeth without the need to wear a metal or fixed brace.

The ‘aligners’ or straighteners are comfortable, painless to wear and virtually invisible.

They gradually move your teeth into the required position in order to achieve a straight and beautiful smile.

Invisalign™ can be used to treat:

  • Crooked Teeth
  • Gaps and spaces between teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Vertically overlapping teeth
  • Vertically under-lapping teeth
  • Abnormal protrusion of lower jaw

The Stages of Your Invisalign™ Treatment

1. Consultation

Your treatment plan will begin with a consultation with our Invisalign™ accredited dentist who will assess your case and discuss your treatment option with you.

This will also allow you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about Invisalign™ treatment and planning with your dentist and clinical team.

2. 3D-Computer Imaging and Visual Assesment

At the next stage, our dentist will take impressions of your teeth which will be analysed by 3D Computer technology. This allows both visual assessment and considerations in the realignment of your teeth to aid in customising your individual treatment plan.

You will be able to see a virtual representation of the final results from your Invisalign™ treatment-so you can see what the finished result and your final smile will look like.

3. Your Personalised Treatment Plan

You will be provided with a detailed treatment plan outlining how each of your clear and custom made aligners will change throughout your treatment program. Your treatment will require you to progress to a new set of aligners every few weeks. Each set of aligners will gradually and gently move and reposition your teeth and at the end of each period, you will "graduate" to a new set of custom made aligners. Your progress will be monitored by your dentist throughout your treatment and the aim will be to achieve a lovely straight smile

4. Creating Your New Invisalign™ Smile

Your straightened teeth and new smile may take up to one year to achieve although this will vary from one individual to another. However, the Invisalign treatment program will allow you numerous many benefits and advantages over the traditional metal braces treatment affording you as a patient, a large degree of control on a day to day basis with the support and back up of your dentist and clinical team when you require it.
