What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is a discreet, clear aligner system that gradually straightens your teeth over a period of time. These aligners are a popular option amongst those who would feel self-conscious wearing traditional braces. Invisalign® clear aligners are essentially invisible and nobody will be able to tell you are wearing them.

Invisalign® braces are custom made to your individual smile, making them a comfortable option. In addition, these aligners are easily removable for meal times and special events.

How does Invisalign® work?

Invisalign® clear aligners are tailored to your mouth. They are customised to fit your existing teeth comfortably and then gradually shift them into the desired position. Each aligner needs to be worn for 1-2 weeks and removed only for a maximum of 2 hours a day until it is replaced by the next set.

First, our friendly clinicians will take some detailed measurements of your mouth to help plan your dream smile. Invisalign incorporates the latest technologies to provide you with a more accurate and comfortable experience. Rather than taking a mouthful of messy impressions, we use a 3D scanner to reproduce your current smile in digital form.

Next, we create an ideal smile for you and demonstrate this via a simulation of how your teeth will be moved. At this step, we will make you aware of the number of aligners required. We will also advise if any teeth need to be adjusted to help with movement and to create space, and show you where your attachments will go. Attachments are small white fillings that are added to specific teeth that engage with the Invisalign® clear aligners. These aid accurate tooth movement which is what makes the Invisalign® system so successful.

We will book you in at regular intervals throughout your Invisalign treatment to ensure your teeth are moving in the right direction. Once we have reached the final aligner and we are happy with the result, we will polish your teeth to remove the attachments and rescan your final smile. This 3D scan will be used to create a retainer. It is strongly advised that you wear this retainer at night, whilst sleeping, to help you retain and protect your new smile.

Invisalign® clear aligners are not suitable for…

During your Invisalign consultation at our practice, our professional clinicians will discuss whether this treatment is suitable for you. If you are showing signs of gum disease, this will need to be treated before you can start using Invisalign® clear aligners. You must also have all of your adult teeth to be suitable for Invisalign.

Invisalign® or traditional braces? What’s the difference?

Traditional braces are made using metal, plastic or ceramic brackets, fixed in place with wires. While these conventional braces are clinically proven to deliver very effective results, they can be obvious and a little unsightly. The solution can be found in the form of Invisalign® clear aligners.

Unlike traditional braces, with Invisalign®, there is no tightening to be done – no changing of wires and no elastic bands to get in the way. This means that the Invisalign system is also more comfortable than conventional braces.

What Invisalign® can’t fix

There are some limitations to the system. Invisalign® clear aligners can’t fix large gaps between the teeth, nor can they fix a severely crooked tooth that needs to be rotated significantly. Invisalign also can’t lower or raise the position of the tooth in the jawline.

During your Invisalign® consultation, our friendly and approachable clinicians will discuss the best treatment option for your oral health. If Invisalign is not suitable and can’t fix your dental issue, we can recommend an alternative treatment plan.

Invisalign® aftercare

Wearing a retainer is one of the biggest parts of your Invisalign® aftercare. You should wear your retainers every night to keep your teeth in their desired alignment.

We also recommend visiting our practice twice a year, or every six months, for regular dental check-ups with your Invisalign dentist. Combining this with maintaining good oral hygiene at home will sustain your Invisalign® results.

Invisalign® pricing

The cost of your Invisalign treatment can depend on your tailored treatment plan. This can vary from patient to patient based on the complexity of their orthodontic issue.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here at Priors Hall Dental, we understand that before beginning Invisalign treatment you may have a lot of questions. We’ve put together some of our frequently asked questions from our Invisalign® patients. If you would like to find out more about treatment with Invisalign clear aligners, please call our friendly team today on 01536 214 144. We look forward to hearing from you.

Do my wisdom teeth need to be removed before Invisalign treatment?

No, you can still use Invisalign clear aligners if your wisdom teeth haven’t been removed. However, if your wisdom teeth are causing you any discomfort, this would need to be addressed before Invisalign® can begin. We will discuss your options with you during your consultation for treatment with Invisalign® at our Northampton practice.

What does Invisalign® feel like?

You should not feel much discomfort with Invisalign® clear aligners as they are custom-made for your existing teeth. Your teeth may feel slightly tender for up to 5 days after switching aligners. After this, they should fit comfortably over your teeth.

Are Invisalign® braces noticeable?

One of the main benefits of Invisalign® is that the aligners are clear, discreet and barely noticeable. Nobody will know you are wearing your aligners unless you tell them.

Will this system close the gaps between my teeth?

Invisalign® braces can close gaps up to 6mm between your teeth. The aligners work to move your teeth into the desired position so you will be able to see which gaps will be closed when we show you your ideal smile.

Will diet be restricted during my Invisalign treatment?

There are no diet restrictions with Invisalign® clear aligners. However, we always recommend following a healthy diet where possible.

What do I need to bring to my first appointment?

For your initial consultation with your Invisalign dentist, please bring with you any relevant dental history. You may also wish to write down any questions beforehand and bring these with you to ask our clinicians.
