Four steps to a new smile with Invisalign in Golders Green

Invisalign in Golders Green is the most discreet way to straighten misaligned teeth, it is also a highly advanced, efficacious treatment that has become the most popular choice for adults and teens alike the world over. At The Garden Dental Practice, we will do everything needed to create your perfect smile. All you have to do is commit at least 22 hours a day to wearing the clear aligners to get the smile you want. It seems like a fair deal considering no one will notice you wearing anything, you will hardly feel your device and nothing in your diet needs to change!

The steps

Step 1 - Assessment

At a consultation for corrective orthodontics, we will assess by use of examination and photographs whether or not you are a good candidate for Invisalign in Golders Green. This treatment can fix a multitude of issues from crowded and misaligned teeth, to gapped teeth and even most malocclusions like overbites. As long as patients are willing to commit the time to wearing the aligners there is a very short list of things the treatment can’t fix.

Step 2 - Treatment plan

If it is determined that you are a good candidate for this treatment then we will take a series of X-rays and digital scans or physical impressions to determine a treatment plan that is customised for your particular case. With this plan, we can provide a computer simulation of how your teeth will shift and move over time, allowing us to predict just how your smile will look when it’s done. This treatment plan is then sent to a professional laboratory that will create a set of clear aligners for you.

Step 3 - Aligners

Once the aligners have been made, you will receive the first set, they have to be worn every day for the recommended time and they can be changed comfortably at home every 1-2 weeks as treatment progresses. These aligners are removable which means that you can eat anything you normally would without damaging them and you can clean your teeth as usual in order to maintain good oral health. They can also be removed for any sporting activity, which means they remain protected in full contact environments.

Step 4 - Monitoring

We will monitor your progress every 4-6 weeks in order to make sure that the aligners are being worn correctly and are pushing your teeth into place as desired. At each of these appointments you will receive the next set of aligners until the next appointment, depending on how long your treatment needs to go on for.

An optional final step

Step 5 - Whitening

Once you have completed treatment with Invisalign in Golders Green and your newly straight smile has you grinning with confidence from ear to ear, it’s up to you if you want to have a whitening treatment to finish it off. Teeth often stain and yellow over time, this is mostly due to diet, and having them whitened can truly transform your overall look and give a boost of confidence.
