The Invisalign Process
Understanding the Invisalign process is essential for a successful treatment journey. Let’s explore the various stages involved in achieving your dream smile with Invisalign:
1. Initial Consultation
Your journey to a straighter smile commences with an initial consultation at Dental Care Centre UK. During this visit, our experienced orthodontist will evaluate your oral health, discuss your smile goals, and assess whether Invisalign is the ideal treatment option for you. If Invisalign is deemed suitable, we will proceed to the next step.
2. Customized Treatment Plan
Following the initial consultation, we will take precise digital impressions of your teeth. These impressions serve as the foundation for creating your customized Invisalign treatment plan. Our orthodontists will use advanced 3D imaging technology to map out the gradual movement of your teeth from their current positions to their desired alignment.
3. Fabrication of Invisalign Aligners
Once your personalized treatment plan is finalized, a series of custom-made Invisalign aligners will be fabricated specifically for your smile transformation. These aligners are designed to exert gentle pressure on your teeth, guiding them into their prescribed positions.
4. Wearing Your Aligners
You will receive a set of aligners, each to be worn for approximately two weeks. You should wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours a day, removing them only for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth will gradually shift into their intended positions.
5. Progress Checkups
Throughout your Invisalign treatment, you will visit Dental Care Centre UK periodically for progress checkups. These appointments allow our orthodontists to monitor your progress, address any concerns, and ensure your treatment stays on track.
6. Completing Your Treatment
Once you’ve completed your series of aligners, your teeth will have achieved their desired alignment. Our orthodontists may recommend the use of retainers to help maintain your new smile’s position. Retainers are typically worn at night and are an essential part of preserving your results.
