What exactly is Invisalign in Golders Green?

Invisalign is the brand name of a particular set of removable, clear braces. These braces are used to straighten mildly to moderately misaligned teeth. Each brace is custom made so as to create as much comfort as possible and due to their inconspicuous appearance, wearing them is a relatively easy adjustment to make within your daily life. Invisalign Golders Green can help you create a dazzling smile that can be worn with confidence and potentially provide you with a boost to your own personal self-esteem!

How will you discover whether the Invisalign system is suitable for me and if it is, what happens next?

Upon discussion of your case we will take a series of photos to determine the suitability of providing you with Invisalign Golders Green. This detailed assessment of your own dental work will allow our dentists to ascertain the most suitable treatment for your particular needs.

Once we have established that Invisalign Golders Green is the way forward for your treatment we will take photos, X-rays, digital scans or potentially take a dental impression depending on what our dental team believes to be most suitable for your treatment. Once we have all the information about your individual case we will put together a treatment plan and then provide you with a 3D viewing of what your personal results could look like.

The next step is to provide you with a series of clear aligners that will be worn for twenty-two hours a day and changed at home. The ability to change the Invisalign braces at home reduces the amount of dental appointments needed and leaves you a little more in control of parts of your treatment. When eating you are advised to remove the braces, so that you can keep on top of your regular oral hygiene. This also means that there is no need to alter your current dietary plan as a normal diet can be maintained..

Rest assured that we do not just leave you to it once the braces are handed over though. Every four to six weeks we will welcome you back for a check-up so that we can monitor the progress being made. A new set of Invisalign aligners will be provided and then we will invite you back again in another four to six weeks. Please note the length of time between appointments may vary depending on your individual needs, but your dental team will discuss this with you during your appointment.

Once the Invisalign aligner has straightened your misaligned teeth we will then provide another set of braces which are ones to be worn, possibly permanently thereafter, so as to maintain your new healthy smile. Luckily, as you will quite quickly come to realise, wearing Invisalign is not a chore and easily fits into your daily routine.

We are pleased to be able to offer you the possibility of wearing these aligners, but they need to be right for your dental situation. Therefore please consult our dentist team for more information on any of the treatments or procedures mentioned in this article.
