Invisalign is a discreet form of orthodontics which strives to straighten and realign a patient’s teeth. Despite common misconceptions Invisalign can be used for the realignment of teeth as well as amending overbites. Many patients may have heard of ‘Invisalign’, they are the largest brand provider of clear aligners within the UK! They have provided excellent results for over 8 million happy patients worldwide.
But how do they work?
Many of our patients may be aware of the name Invisalign in Hertfordshire, however, they may be unsure of how the clear aligners work, this is where we can help! Our clinic has experienced a huge increase in demand for subtle orthodontics within the field of modern dentistry, which is where Invisalign steps in. Individual printed clear aligners are created for each patient at our clinic, using a modern iTero digital scanner. Using these three-dimensional scans the Invisalign smile simulation software creates three dimensional images of our patients’ post-treatment smiles!
So… What’s next?
Once your Invisalign in Hertfordshire iTero digital scan has been taken (yes hassle-free with no mess, no dental impression putty) we can send your scan to Invisalign to create your smile simulation, see your new smile within minutes! Thereafter the clear aligners can be ordered and printed.
What are the benefits?
With the use of this modern digital scanning system, we can estimate the exact number of clear aligners our patients require (the clinic also use Dental Monitoring which can save patients money regarding dental appointments during treatment), as well as give them an idea of what their future smile will look like. Our smile simulator can boost our nervous patients with huge confidence, that their chosen treatment will produce effective and long lasting results.
Working for you
Our clinic within Hertfordshire has plenty of experience working with a wide array of dental cases, which is why we treat each patient’s case as unique. As the clinic use Dental Monitoring our dental healthcare professionals will check our patients progress on a weekly basis after the patients submit their scans (Scanbox and training provided). Through these scans we can ensures the teeth are moving correctly and everything is progressing as expected during their clear aligner treatment. A massive benefit with this monitoring it saves on appointment times as the scan is done in the comfort of our patient home but our patients are effectively seen on a weekly basis.
A comfortable and convenient dental experience
Clear aligners have the huge advantage of being 100% plastic, this means patients will suffer from minimal, or even no abrasions and look fantastic! Traditional metal braces contain unsightly metal wires and brackets which can lead to an unpleasant treatment period, this is where clear aligners differ greatly.
Aside from the materials they are made of, Invisalign can be removed to work around our patients’ busy lifestyles, meaning they can feel confident at an important work or even social event. The removable nature of the aligners means that our patients can brush and take care of their teeth normally, as well as clean the trays to a high standard before placing them back in the mouth.
