Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. It’s a popular alternative to traditional metal braces due to its discreet appearance and convenience. Let’s explore how Invisalign works, from the initial consultation to the completion of treatment, and discuss its benefits and what life with Invisalign is like.

How Does Invisalign Work - Moray OrthodonticsThe Invisalign Treatment Process

This structured process ensures a smooth and effective Invisalign treatment experience, allowing you to achieve a straighter smile with minimal discomfort and maximum convenience.

  • Initial Consultation: The Invisalign journey here at Moray Orthodontics begins with an initial consultation with our orthodontist. During this appointment, the orthodontist will evaluate your dental condition and discuss your treatment goals. We will assess your teeth alignment, bite, and overall oral health to determine if Invisalign is the right choice for you. This is an opportunity to ask any questions and learn more about what the treatment entails.
  • Digital Imaging and Impressions: Once you’ve decided to move forward with Invisalign, the next step involves creating a digital 3D model of your mouth. The orthodontist will take digital scans or impressions of your teeth, which are more precise and comfortable than traditional methods. This advanced imaging technology allows for the creation of a personalised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
  • Custom Treatment Plan Creation: Using the digital scans and specialised software, the orthodontist designs a custom treatment plan. This plan maps out the gradual movement of your teeth from their current positions to the desired outcome. You’ll also have the opportunity to see a digital simulation of how your teeth will shift over time, giving you a clear idea of your treatment journey.
  • Aligner Fabrication: Once your treatment plan is finalised, the aligners are custom-fabricated using your 3D model. Each set of aligners is designed to be worn for about one to two weeks, guiding your teeth through each stage of the treatment plan. The aligners are crafted from clear, BPA-free thermoplastic material, ensuring they are virtually invisible and comfortable to wear.
  • Wearing the Aligners: You will be instructed to wear the aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day, removing them only for eating, drinking (except water), and oral hygiene. Wearing the aligners consistently is crucial for achieving the desired results within the estimated treatment time. Switching to a new set of aligners as directed by your orthodontist allows for the gradual movement of your teeth.
  • Follow-Up Appointments: Regular follow-up appointments with our orthodontist are essential to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments. These appointments help ensure that your treatment is on track and progressing according to plan. The orthodontist may also provide you with additional guidance on caring for your aligners and maintaining optimal oral hygiene.

How Invisalign Straightens Teeth

Invisalign works by applying gentle, controlled pressure to your teeth through the clear aligners. Each set of aligners is designed to guide your teeth into the desired positions over time. As you progress through the treatment, you transition to new sets of aligners approximately every one to two weeks, depending on your orthodontist’s recommendations. This gradual process ensures a comfortable and effective shift in your teeth alignment. The length of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the complexity of your case, but it typically takes between six months and two years.
