How does Invisalign treatment work?

The Invisalign system is fast, comfortable and nearly invisible.

The Invisalign system works with the use of invisible aligners. Whilst undergoing your treatment you will be given a series of removable teeth aligners. You will be given a new set of Invisalign aligners every two weeks. They will be gradually adjusted in shape to move your teeth closer to the desired position with each new set of aligners. Each Invisalign aligner is crafted solely for your teeth so you can be sure that your teeth will be in their perfect position by the end of your treatment.

 

Invisalign Cardiff Consultation

The first step is to visit our dental surgery in Cardiff for a free consultation. Our head dentist and teeth straightening expert, Dr Dan, will talk you through the process and use his knowledge to decide if you are a good candidate for Invisalign braces.

Dr Dan, will then take impressions of your teeth as well as a few x-rays of your dental structure. Dr Dan will work with Invisalign and their 3D technology to design the end position of your teeth. After Dr Dan is happy with the planned teeth movements he will give Invisalign the go ahead to begin fabrication of your clear aligners.

You are now given your first set of clear aligners to wear. You will wear these for a set period of time until your teeth have moved into the position of the aligner. At this point you will swap to the next aligner. This is repeated until your teeth are straight!
