Here at Fresh, we offer two different types of removable Invisalign braces.
What are Invisalign braces?
Invisalign is a set of clear aligners used to straighten misaligned teeth. They are made from transparent material which makes them a discreet choice of treatment. Invisalign is lightweight and comfortable, allowing you to get on with you daily routine hassle-free.
We also offer i7 which is a new orthodontics system from Invisalign, specifically designed to achieve minor tooth movements. This system can also help treat problems with spacing, crowding and orthodontic relapse. The treatment can sometimes take longer than traditional fixed metal braces to correct misaligned teeth, with results beginning to show between 12-18 months.
Invisalign Express amalgamates the best features of Invisalign i7 and Invisalign to create a treatment suitable for less severe orthodontic problems like spacing and crowding. Invisalign Express aims to correct problems in as little as six months.
Benefits of Invisalign aligners
- Discreet – others will not notice you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.
- Treatment time is similar to that of traditional fixed braces.
- You can continue enjoying the foods you love as you can remove your braces to eat them – they will not interfere with your treatment as long as you take them out.
- You are in control of your treatment – you replace the aligners – they must be worn for 22 hours a day.
What is the procedure involved with removable Invisalign braces?
You will need to attend an initial consultation so that we can talk through your treatment with you and create a bespoke treatment plan for you. On your second appointment, we will take X-rays, pictures and impressions of your teeth so that your treatment can be precisely mapped out – the length of your treatment can also be ascertained once this information is known.
Once your braces have been made up, you can go home and begin the treatment, changing your aligners every 2 weeks and wearing them for 22 hours per day. Once the course of treatment is complete, you will need to wear a retainer to ensure that your teeth do not shift back into their original position. This is an essential part of treatment as all of your hard work could become redundant without a retainer!
Invisalign has be come an extremely popular option with celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Niall Horan and Kathy Bates.
