Invisalign braces are one of the most popular choices for straightening smiles in Stockport. But there’s so much to learn about the treatment, from how it works to how long it takes. That’s why we use our blog to educate our patients on this fantastic treatment – and help you make the right choices for you and your smile.
So, what's Invisalign all about?
Invisalign braces are clear aligners – special trays – that fit snugly over your smile. Instead of using wires and brackets like traditional fixed braces, the trays do all the hard work. All it takes to keep treatment on track is to go onto the next set when your dentist directs you – usually every couple of weeks – as each aligner is a slightly different shape to gently nudge your teeth into position. Patients in Manchester love that Invisalign braces are clear, removable and comfortable.
How long does treatment take?
It varies between patients, as it depends on your smile, the extent of straightening you need and other factors, like whether you need any other dental work and whether you’ve had orthodontic treatment before. A typical treatment takes from 12-18 months.
What's the treatment process for Invisalign?
Invisalign braces require a consultation to ensure they’re right for you, so we’ll take a good look at your teeth, take some impressions and look over your dental history. We’ll then feed this information into a computer, which then plots how your teeth should be aligned over time, and calculates the number of aligners needed to do this. Finally, you’ll see predicted results of how your treatment will look and can then start your teeth-straightening journey.
Why Invisalign braces?
Invisalign braces really are one of the best names in orthodontics – trusted by dentists just as much as patients. They’re a popular choice in Stockport and beyond, so if you’d like to know more about them, just give our friendly team a call.
