Straight teeth, a beautiful smile and all without anyone knowing you’re having treatment. Sounds too good to be true really, doesn’t it? Not at The Brace, because our team work with Invisalign, the virtually invisible aligners that can straighten your teeth so discreetly no- one will know you’re having treatment. But will they notice your new smile? Absolutely!
The orthodontist plans the overall orthodontic treatment and will require his team of orthodontic therapists who are supervised by the orthodontist to perform procedures related to you throughout the treatment time.
Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth. There is no need for brackets, archwires or elastic bands like those used with traditional metal braces. Instead, Invisalign aligners look like thin sports mouthguards and fit over your teeth so discreetly no one will know you’re having treatment.
What’s more, the aligners are removable so you can take them out to eat, brush and floss to keep your teeth healthy during treatment. You can also remove them when playing sports or musical instruments, or for those important business meetings and other occasions, such as first dates!
Invisalign works by creating a series of custom-made aligners designed specifically for your teeth and jaws. Each set of aligners, one for the top teeth and one for the bottom, should be worn for approximately two weeks. After this two-week period is up, you’ll need to replace them with the next set in the series.
Every set of aligners is shaped slightly differently according to your bespoke treatment plan, so they build on the work of the previous set. As you replace the aligners your teeth gradually move into their desired position.
Change your aligners every two weeks you ask? But you don’t have time to come into the clinic every two weeks, right? You don’t have too. At The Brace, we use Invisalign aligners in conjunction with orthodontic software, dental monitoring. This allows us to track your treatment via your smartphone reducing the number of check-up appointments you’ll need to attend throughout your treatment.
Dental monitoring works as an app on your smartphone and is compatible with all smartphones. All you need to do is take a selfie of your teeth every few days and upload it to the app. Your selfie comes through to us at the clinic where we can assess your photos against your treatment plan and ensure your teeth are straightening as they should be.
Dental monitoring allows for greater communication between you and our team and, with less clinic visits required, it means orthodontic treatment now fits even more easily into your lifestyle.
