What is Invisalign?

Most people suffer from a certain degree of misalignment of their teeth, unless they have undergone orthodontic treatment which they have been able to successfully retain throughout their adult life. Most people are reluctant to undergo orthodontic treatment as an adult and the last two decades have seen the introduction, establishment and growing popularity of Invisalign for correcting misalignment issues of the teeth.

Invisalign is a highly effective yet discreet method of straightening your teeth and is designed to be convenient and comfortable, so that it does not disrupt any other aspects of your life. Invisalign works using clear plastic aligners which are individually tailored using specialised three-dimensional scans for added comfort and precision. Treatment works over the course of 6 to 12 months to help gradually correct minor or mild imperfections in the positioning of your teeth. These aligners can be taken out of your mouth and placed back in as necessary.  Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks at a time and then you move onto the next aligner in the series. You will be asked to visit our dentist Luton after every two or three aligners to make sure that the treatment process is coming along successfully. Invisalign will not only help create a more beautiful smile for you, but it will also help improve your oral health in general. Speak to us at our practice today and find out more about the advantages of a neatly aligned smile and how it can work for you in a multitude of ways.
