Invisalign open day Saturday 17th March 2018 10am-2pm

February 14, 2018 by Fairlight Dental

If you’re considering a straighter smile, but aren’t keen on the idea of “train tracks,” clunky brackets or visible wires, Invisalign’s clear removable aligners allow you to straighten your teeth the discreet way – so all people will notice is your confident smile.

An alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign uses a series of transparent plastic retainers to gently ease your teeth into position – you will change to a new aligner every 1 to 2 weeks, each time getting closer to that straight end result.

At Chepstow Dental Care we are having an open day so that you can learn more about Invisalign. We will be able to show you the system, answer any of your questions and give you a fantastic deal if you decided to go ahead with treatment.

Ten reasons to have Invisalign:

1. The clear aligners are almost invisible, making them popular with adults.

2. Invisalign is easily removable for eating, contact sports and the odd special occasion

3. Using ClinCheck software, we can show you how your teeth could look after treatment before you even start!

4. Your aligners are custom-made to suit your smile and fit securely over your teeth

5. Invisalign is able to treat a range of issues, from slight misalignment to more dramatic transformations

6. We work around you – our clinicians will provide you with batches of aligners so that you can change them on time, wherever you are

7. Treatment times are usually about 6 months. Everyone is different but unlikely more than 9 months

8. With no wires or brackets, Invisalign is smooth and comfortable to wear

9. You can care for your teeth as normal, as Invisalign can be removed to brush and floss

10. It’s tried and tested – used by over 5 million people worldwide (and counting!)

Invisalign® braces step-by-step

If you’re interested in Invisalign braces you’re probably keen to know more about what your treatment will involve. Invisalign sounds great, but will you need to undergo long and arduous appointments with us to achieve a straighter smile? The short answer is ‘no’ (phew!).

From the very beginning, treatment is comfortable and convenient. To give you an idea of what to expect, here is a step-by-step guide to the typical Invisalign patient journey:

1. Invisalign consultation

Come and see us for a consultation to find out if an Invisalign treatment is suitable for you. This appointment is very relaxed and will include a brief examination of your teeth and the opportunity to ask lots of questions. We’ll also go through the cost of your treatment and our payment options. Photos will be taken sent to the Invisalign who will quickly give us an idea if treatment is possible of not.

2. ClinCheck®

At your next appointment, we’ll take impressions (moulds) of your teeth, which we send off to Invisalign’s team in Costa Rica. On our open day we will have access to the latest technology and a scanner will be used instead of the impressions…..very clever!! They’ll then use these impressions to create a digital model of your teeth and, based on our recommendations, they’ll plan your treatment using special ClinCheck software.

3. Virtual treatment plan

Your virtual treatment plan is then sent back to your us so we can make sure we are both happy with your end result and the way your teeth are going to move throughout your treatment (we can anticipate how your teeth will look at every stage!).

4. Your Invisalign Braces

Once your ClincCheck has been approved by your us, Invisalign will make the custom aligners that will be used to straighten your teeth. The number of aligners that you’ll need will depend on how complex your treatment plan is. Usually, you’ll have one aligner for every two weeks of treatment. It’s important to wear your retainers for between 20 and 22 hours every day.

5. Check-ups

We will give you a few aligners at a time and see you every six to eight weeks to check your progress and hand over the next set of aligners. Usually, this is a quick routine appointment to make sure everything is moving as planned. Occasionally we may need to make small adjustments to your teeth or Invisalign braces. For example, it might be necessary to fit small tooth-coloured buttons to your teeth to help your aligners move them in a particular direction. These are called Invisalign attachments – you can see an example of an attachment in the below photo.

6. Refinements

As you reach the end of your treatment we may need to make some extra refinements to give you the very best results. These would be included in the cost of your treatment and might involve taking another set of impressions, from which Invisalign can make you some extra aligners to refine your results.

7. Retainers

Once your treatment is complete you’ll be given fixed and removable retainers. Before you stop wearing your Invisalign braces we’ll fit a discreet fixed retainer behind your teeth, which will permanently hold them in place. At the same time, we’ll take impressions for a removable retainer, which will arrive back from our lab the following week. Your removable retainer will be very similar to your Invisalign aligners, but you will only need to wear it at night.

8. Follow-up care

Included in cost of your treatment are two years of follow-up care, so for the next 24 months we’ll see you for regular check-ups and you can also get in touch if you have any problems.
