Imagine being able to have your teeth straightened and achieve the smile you've always dreamed of, without anyone knowing you're having treatment. Sound too good to be true?
Well, at Pure Orthodontics, it's possible thanks to the method of invisible braces known as Invisalign.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of virtually invisible, clear plastic aligners. Unlike fixed braces they are removable and are custom made to sit over your top and bottom teeth. They're comfortable, easy to wear and discreet. And what's more, they get great results!
How does Invisalign work?
Every two weeks you replace your aligners with a new set. Each set gradually moves your teeth towards the final projected position prescribed by Dr Reinach. One of the many benefits of Invisalign treatment is that it's easy. There are very few appointments required, you can manage your treatment, and continue to keep your teeth in good condition throughout.
Here's how it works:
Step one: Every patient receiving Invisalign treatment has their own unique Invisalign aligners custom made. These are made from scans we take of your mouth and teeth at your first appointment, using a unique software programme called ClinCheck. This programme shows you a digital animation of our proposed treatment plan and what your new smile will look like once you've finished treatment.
Step two: Once the aligners have been made, you will need to come in for a fitting appointment. This is when we'll give you your first set of aligners, which need to be worn for approximately two weeks. We won't need to see you again for about eight weeks, so at this appointment we will also give you another three sets of aligners. Every two weeks, simply replace your aligners with the next set in the series. Each set is slightly different as they work to guide your teeth into the desired position as prescribed by Dr Reinach.
Step three: Invisalign treatment can achieve results much faster than traditional metal braces, but in between orthodontic appointments, you must manage your own treatment. This isn't difficult to do as it simply requires wearing the aligners for 22 hours per day, replacing each set every two weeks and maintaining a good oral hygiene routine. After the course of Invisalign treatment has finished, you will need to wear retainers, as recommended by your orthodontist, to keep your teeth in their new position.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Each set of Invisalign aligners is made specifically for your teeth
Eating, brushing and flossing your teeth during treatment is easy because the aligners can be removed
You can also remove the aligners for important occasions, such as business meetings or weddings
You only need to attend orthodontic appointments once every eight weeks
No-one will know you're having treatment because the aligners are virtually invisible
