Invisalign gives people the opportunity to achieve straighter teeth without the need for fitted brackets or uncomfortable wires.
This unique orthodontic system is unnoticeable and completely removable, so patients can receive treatment without the worry of it affecting their outward appearance.
If your The Walden Dental Clinic orthodontist feels Invisalign is the right system
for you, impressions will be taken of your teeth and sent off to our laboratory where they will create your appliance. You will then be fitted with clear aligners that help to move your teeth gently into place.
Aligners are similar to a mouth guard, but as they are completely clear they are barely visible. Every two weeks, you will visit the practice for a new set of aligners. This is necessary as every aligner will be adjusted to encourage the movement of your teeth.
You will need to wear the aligners for up to 22 hours every day but can remove them for eating and cleaning.
Invisalign can be used to correct a number of orthodontic issues such as crowding, crookedness, wide gaps between the teeth, cross or under bites.
At the end of the treatment, you will be given a retainer so that you can maintain the new position of your teeth.
It is important to make sure you are suitable for invisalign and so our experienced cosmetic dentists will assess your oral health and hygiene before any cosmetic orthodontic treatment. Any consultations are free for our regular patients.
If you are unregistered you will have to attend a new patient private exam before proceeding. Please also note we offer alternative cosmetic tooth straightening treatments including clear bracket fixed braces. Please talk to one of our dentists for all your options
