Treatment process

An Invisalign Treatment Plan that is made for you

Before a treatment plan can be created, your Invisalign Provider will take an impression of your teeth to check whether they can be straightened using the Invisalign System. Once confirmed, a detailed treatment plan will then be developed using ClinCheck®, our virtual 3D treatment plan. ClinCheck shows the series of movements your teeth are projected to go through over the course of the treatment – so you can see how your teeth are expected to look at the end of your Invisalign treatment before it even begins.

Smiling every step of the way

When you begin your Invisalign treatment, you will wear each set of custom-made aligners in two-week increments. As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth will begin moving, little by little, gradually moving towards the projected final position. During this time you will have occasional check-

ups with your Invisalign Provider in order to monitor your progress and ensure you are comfortable with the treatment

Designed to fit your lifestyle

The time it takes to complete the treatment varies from person to person, depending on the complexity of each straightening issue. It is important to speak with your Invisalign Provider to determine how Invisalign best suits your situation and goals, and to agree the best way forward for you.

Can Invisalign work for you?

Invisalign® treats a range of straightening issues, ranging from minor tooth movements to more complex cases. Whatever the issue, the result is a new, more even smile that you will want everyone to see.

Here are some of the straightening issues that can be treated with Invisalign.

Overcrowded teeth occur when there is a lack of room within your jaw for all of your teeth to fit normally.

 

Widely spaced teeth occur when you have extra space within your jaw.

 

Cross bites occur when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned. It usually causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, and can happen on both the front and/or the sides of the mouth.

 

Deep bites occur when the upper teeth overlap significantly with the lower teeth.

 

Under bites occur when the lower teeth protrude past the front teeth, usually caused by undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or both.

 

While it’s important that you visit an Invisalign Provider to see how well the Invisalign treatment fits your needs, you can take our Smile Assessment now for an overview of what you perceive to be your particular straightening issue that you can then discuss further during your initial Invisalign consultation.

Invisalign for teenagers

Invisalign offers a range of treatment options for teenagers. The great benefit of Invisalign is that it provides an aesthetic, more flexible way to give teenagers the confidence of a great smile. Invisalign aligners are comfortable, removable and nearly invisible, which means teenagers can carry on enjoying life without the restrictions, irritation and self-consciousness often associated with metal brackets and wires. Invisalign aligners are also removable, so teenagers can continue brushing and flossing normally.

What options are available to teenagers?

Invisalign has several treatment options available for teenagers, depending on the stage of teeth development. Some teenagers will be suitable for the same Invisalign treatment as adult patients. Younger teenagers, or those whose adult teeth have not yet erupted can be treated with Invisalign Teen – a treatment designed specifically for teenagers. Your Invisalign Provider will determine which treatment best suits your individual needs and the condition of your teeth.

Why Invisalign Teen?

Invisalign Teen has been developed with teenagers, parents and leading orthodontists who understand the active lifestyles and unique treatment needs of teenage patients.The Invisalign Teen aligners are made with the same Invisalign technology used for Invisalign aligners, moving teeth gradually without the need for metal or wires. But because teens (and their mouths) are constantly on the move, we’ve added a few special features:

• Blue wear-indicators fade from blue to clear to help your Invisalign Provider, you, and your teenager to gauge wear time.

• Special features designed to compensate for the eruption of canines, second premolars and second mola
