An Invisalign® Treatment Plan that is made individually for you.
Before a treatment plan can be created, we will take a digital scan of your teeth using the iTero® scanner to check whether they can be straightened using the Invisalign® clear brace system. Once confirmed, a detailed treatment plan will then be developed using iTero®, our virtual 3D digital software. This will show 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.
At the Brunswick Square Dental Practice, we believe that a great looking smile is essential in boosting your self-confidence and happiness. Traditional metal braces are uncomfortable due to the brackets scraping against the inner check and gums. This can cause soreness and inflammation of the mouth.
Invisalign® clear braces are made from comfortable plastic that fit perfectly, giving you the comfort and confidence to smile.
Invisalign® braces are an innovative way of straightening your teeth. The near invisible aligners fit comfortably over your teeth, gently guiding them into their new position. Treatment time varies dependent largely on the severity of the initial problem, but generally can run from three to four months up to two years. The series of aligners are entirely see-through, which makes them almost invisible. They are very easy to live with because they allow for normal function and speech. The aligners, which gradually move your teeth into better positions, are worn all the time except when eating and cleaning.
Do you have problems with crooked, cramped or gapped teeth?
If the answer is yes, then come and see us for a consultation as the health of your teeth and gums could be compromised due to the difficulties in maintaining good oral hygiene. Advancements in orthodontic treatments can now simply achieve a straight and healthy smile comfortably.
Over 2.5 million people worldwide have straightened their teeth with Invisalign® clear brace system. Brunswick Square Dental Practice is an Invisalign® certified provider, allowing our patients to take advantage of this advanced orthodontic treatment with total confidence.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is orthodontic treatment that gradually straightens teeth by using a series of virtually invisible, removable aligners. Treatment consists of a series of custom made, clear plastic fitting trays called aligners which are changed around every two weeks.
You would need to visit the Brunswick Square Dental Practice, an accredited Invisalign® practice, on average every four to six week. The purpose of regular visits is so we can monitor your progress and at each appointment, provide the next stage of aligners to wear until your next visit. The aligners are individually crafted to move your teeth into position little by little, gradually moving towards the projected final position. Treatments plans will vary from patient to patient according to their individual needs, though the average time in our experience is 9-12 months.
What are the benefits of Invisalign®?
Invisalign® aligners are virtually invisible, and typically hardly anyone notices that you’re wearing them, transforming your smile without disrupting your life.
As Invisalign® aligners are removable, you can eat and drink what you want during the treatment by simply removing the aligners. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would to maintain your normal oral hygiene routine. Unlike traditional fixed braces, there are no metal brackets or wires. This means that in most cases less time is spent in the practice for treatment adjustments.
Finally, the Invisalign® system allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you begin treatment, so you can see how your teeth are expected to look when your treatment is complete.
Another advantage of using Invisalign® rather than other clear aligners available is that you only need to have one set of impressions taken to construct the aligners due to the fantastic technology of Invisalign®.
The Invisalign® brace is popular for adults but increasingly for children due to their gentle comfort and great appearance.
