Teeth Straightening, Bovey Tracey

Patient’s who are unhappy with the appearance of their smile now have a discreet, effective solution to straighten their teeth. Also an increasingly popular solution among adults who’ve had braces at some point in the past, but the results didn’t last – Invisalign’s® clear aligner system is a great way to straighten teeth in as little as 12 weeks!

What is Invisalign®?

A clear, almost invisible aligner. Unlike fixed braces, there are no wires or brackets with Invisalign®. This means no metal is present, so you can carry on living your life as normal; whilst discretely straightening your teeth.

Invisalign® can treat a wide range of orthodontic cases, from small adjustments, to more severe alignment issues. It can also adjust a patient’s bite if they suffer from an over or under-bite, manipulating their jaw throughout treatment!

What Does the Treatment Process Involve?

Following a consultation with our Invisalign® provider, your scans or impressions will be sent to dental laboratories for your bespoke aligners to be produced. They’re then delivered to your home for your teeth straightening journey to start. 

One set of aligners will be used for approximately 2 weeks, then a new set will be required. Each set moves the teeth further towards the desired result, an aesthetically pleasing, straighter smile. The amount of aligners will depend on the severity of the case and how much movement is needed.

Because the aligners are removable, it’s easy to maintain good oral hygiene throughout the teeth straightening process. It’s recommended to wear the aligners for 20-22 hours per day, as the system is only effective during the time that they are in contact with the teeth.

Is Invisalign® Suitable for Me?

Any patient wanting to change something about the alignment of their teeth can have Invisalign®. Whether they have crooked, gappy, wonky or crowded teeth, Invisalign® could well be the solution to achieve the desired result*.

An increasing number of patients who’ve had traditional braces in the past have also decided to start their Invisalign® journey with us. In most cases, the result’s didn’t last as expected or they failed to wear their retainers following the removal of the brace. Invisalign® fits perfectly into the busy lives of our patient’s, allowing them to continue enjoying a social life without the worry of people seeing tracks, wires and brackets when they smile.

*Patient’s must be considered dentally fit to undergo treatment. In some cases, prior treatment may be necessary to ensure it’s safe to straighten teeth. This highlight’s the importance of having teeth straightening treatment with a qualified professional. 

What Happens After Treatment?

Once all of the aligners have been used, retainers must be worn to maintain the new shape of the teeth for a designated period of time. We also offer complimentary teeth whitening as part of our Invisalign® packages to brighten the new, straight smile!
