Invisalign – Near Invisible Braces

 

Invisalign is one of the world’s leading clear aligner systems. Its patented innovative technology allows you to view your treatment in stages from start to finish before you have even begun treatment.

Invisalign is a series of clear, acrylic removable Aligners which are changed around every 2 to 3 weeks to the next in succession.  These Aligners are custom made according to your practitioner’s prescription. They gently apply pressure which gradually aligns the teeth. To plan your Invisalign treatment, your practitioner will take photographs and moulds of your teeth which are then sent to the Invisalign technicians. Together they will plan your treatment and construct the Aligners. You will be presented with a 3D computerised image that will show your treatment at every phase, so if you have a special occasion mid treatment, you will be able to see exactly how your teeth will look.

Why choose Invisalign?

Incredibly discreet

When worn, the clear aligners are near impossible to spot when you smile. Your friends and family will only know that you have them in if you tell them.

Comfortable and removable

The aligners are made using cutting edge technology, promising an accurate fit that’s both snug and comfortable when worn. As they are removable, there’s no need to change your eating habits as you can just take them out when dining.

Innovative and fuss-free

We have full use of 3D technology at our practice so everything is handled digitally. There are no messy moulds or unnecessary paperwork. We take digital impressions at the practice and use this tech to show you the step-by-step journey your teeth will take to reach their straighter position.

What does the treatment involve?

We first see you for your free consultation where we discuss the treatment at length and make sure that your Oral Health is in top condition. The healthier your smile, the better it responds to the straightening treatment.

Impressions and photos are taken of your teeth and 3D technology creates a personalised plan which shows how your teeth will move and look following treatment.

When the unique Aligners have been produced in a laboratory, you wear a different one every two weeks until the desired result is achieved.
Treatment times can vary but most cases are usually completed within 6-12 months. However, you do have to be sure to wear the Aligners for 22-24 hours per day to benefit from successful and speedy results. You will also need to wear a retainer following treatment to keep your newly aligned teeth straight.

Frequently Asked Questions – FAQ

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an alternative to braces, where it uses clear, customised aligners without brackets or wires. It also can be easily removed for eating or brushing your teeth, but will still allow your teeth to be moved into the right position.

How quickly do teeth move with Invisalign?

The amount of time teeth take to move depends on person to person, but the average time it takes is 6-12 months, only if the aligners are worn for 22-24 hours per day.

Does Invisalign change your face shape?

A change to crooked teeth can change the shape of your face but in a good way and if you have an overbite your upper lip could extend.

Does Invisalign make teeth yellow?

Invisalign does not make teeth yellow as long as you do not smoke whilst wearing them and brush your teeth after eating and before putting them back in.

Do you take Invisalign out to sleep?

No, as Invisalign needs to be worn for 22-24 hours per day for the effects to take place and should not be taken out for more than two hours.

This was my first visit as a new patient at Confidental St Helier & felt quite nervous. I didn’t need to worry though, from booking in at reception & meeting my new dentist was a really good experience. I would highly recommend them.

Kind, gentle and friendly receptionists, dentist and hygienist. Was dreading visiting the dentist as I had not been for quite a while. Walked out of my check-up with a spring in my step and amuch brighter, cleaner smile on my face. So grateful I managed to get in.

I am so happy that I had my dental treatment here at St Helier. Dr Zena Al-ansari made it possible for me to smile again after more than 30 years. I had Invisalign fitted as well as other procedures during the course of a year and the care and attention I received was outstanding. Zena is such a lovely friendly dentist who puts you at ease and informs you of your procedure every step of the way. Thank you so much for giving me the confidence to smile again😃
