Invisalign Coventry

Invisalign is a ground-breaking system for teeth straightening, providing patients with braces that are convenient and easy to use. One of the main attractions of the Invisalign system is their ‘invisible’ appearance, made possible due to the state-of-the-art translucent material from which they are made, thus allowing you to talk and smile with utmost freedom.

The treatment involves a set of aligners being specially made to suit each patient’s teeth after impressions are taken at the beginning of treatment. Each set of aligners will need to be changed every fortnight to ensure that teeth are steadily moved into the correct position over time.

The immensely popular Invisalign system is on offer at Coventry Braces and is able to treat a variety of dental abnormalities. These include:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Misaligned jaw position
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Overbite (upper teeth overlie the lower teeth)
  • Underbite (lower teeth extend beyond over the upper teeth)
  • Missing teeth
  • Malocclusion (‘bite’ problems)
  • Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD)

Invisalign is able to achieve outstanding results for many patients but is unsuitable for cases in which there is a great deal of movement required or when the removal of teeth is necessary.

Invisalign makes use of modern computer and 3D modelling technology to create braces that are perfectly suited to each patient’s teeth and able to move teeth into the desired position.

The Advantages of Invisalign

Benefits of the Invisalign system include:

  • Comfortable: patients are often amazed at how comfortable Invisalign braces are compared to more traditional methods.
  • Clear: the Invisalign system offers patients an extremely discrete route for correcting dental abnormalities.
  • Ease of use: the Invisalign aligners are easily removable when you want to eat or drink and this is also the case for when you need to brush or floss your teeth.

The Invisalign system

To make sure Invisalign is a success you are recommended to wear the braces for a maximum of 22 hours a day. The braces will only need to be removed for eating, drinking and cleaning your teeth.

Aligners will need to be changed every two weeks in order for the teeth to be gradually moved into their ideal position. The length of treatment will vary according to each patient’s individual case.

Treatment time will vary from six to eighteen months. During this time you will need to visit your orthodontist for routine checks ups around every six weeks to keep an eye on the progress of your treatment.

For patients who require slight corrections Invisalign Express is an excellent choice.
