What is Invisalign - Dentistry by Design

What is Invisalign

Thanks to the latest, state-of-the-art technology, turning unsightly, skew teeth into a straight, picture-perfect smile is entirely possible. Invisalign makes use of 3D technology to allow dentists to plan a bespoke treatment programme to offer patients the ability to get the straight, pearly-white smile they’ve always dreamed of.

According to the professionals at Dentistry by Design, Invisalign is a new-age, state-of-the-art teeth straightening technique which boasts huge success. Invisible, removable aligners are inserted in between teeth based on a 3D scan which guides the dentist as to where to insert them. The aligners gently shift and move the teeth in the necessary direction – either vertically or horizontally – and the aligners are changed by your dentist every two weeks or less, as the teeth alignment changes and improves.

Thanks to the personalised imaging that Invisalign technology embraces, the aligners are individually custom-set to each patients’ specific set of teeth. Invisalign applies the exact amount of pressure as is needed for the patient’s teeth to move until a straightened result has been created gently.

How does my dentist know what aligners to use?

Invisalign treatment uses the very latest technology to create a personalised treatment plan for each patient. A 3D scan will be taken to get a 360-degree view of your mouth, teeth, alignment and jaw. From this high-tech image, your specialised dentist will be able to use dedicated software to create a treatment plan as to what aligners to use and where. Another 3D image can be designed to show you what your new smile and aligned teeth can and will look like thanks to Invisalign technology.

How long does it take for Invisalign treatment to work?

Invisalign treatment programme is tailor-made to each patient and the success and time for the treatment to be completed is dependent on a variety of factors. Each patient is different and, of course, the complexity of each patient’s case can vary drastically. When you consult with your dental professional, like those at Dentistry by Design, he or she will be able to discuss your unique case and give estimates around timelines and expected results.
