What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a new and almost invisible way to straighten teeth without braces. Invisalign invisible braces in Luton use a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth, without metal or wires.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign invisible braces in Luton at Vogue Dental Care use innovative 3D computer imaging technology to accurately predict the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position, from which a series of custom-made, clear aligners are produced. Each of these aligners moves the teeth gradually in small increments and will be worn for about 7-10 days. It is then replaced by the next in the series until the final position is achieved.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

An important factor in people’s choice of Invisalign is the fact that they are clear. You can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.

Invisalign invisible braces in Luton are also removable. Unlike braces, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.

Invisalign is also comfortable. There are no metal brackets or wires as with braces to cause mouth irritation and no metal or wires means you spend less time in the dentist’s chair getting adjustments.

Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

How old is this technology?

In 1945, Dr H.D. Kesling envisioned that one-day modern technology would enable the use of a series of tooth positioners to produce the kinds of movements required for comprehensive dental treatment. Technology has finally made his vision a reality. Using advanced computer technology, Align created Invisalign, a series of customised clear appliances, called ‘aligners’. The patient sequentially wears each aligner to produce extensive tooth movements in both upper and lower arches over a shorter period than many traditional style fixed braces could achieve.

How many people have benefitted from Invisalign?

To date worldwide, over 4 million patients have been successfully treated with Invisalign. The number grows daily and even includes many A list celebrities, such as Tom Cruise, Justin Bieber and Khloe Kardashian.
