Are you considering straightening your teeth but are looking for an alternative to traditional metal braces? Maybe you have had orthodontic treatment before and now you are looking for a more flexible alternative to fixed braces. If you are unsure of what teeth straightening options are available for you, by booking a consultation at your local dental practice, an experienced dentist will be able to provide you with suitable treatment options in order to perfect your smile, and one of these options is Invisalign London.
Teeth straightening at your dental practice
Many dental practices now offer Invisalign London as a way to straighten your teeth quickly and effectively. Invisalign London works by using state of the art dental technology to create custom made aligners that are able to straighten your teeth and correct any dental issues. Before starting this treatment, you will be invited to have a free in house consultation with one of the experienced dentists, to confirm that Invisalign London is the best treatment for your dental concerns.
As part of this consultation, the dentist will carry out what is known as the Invisalign Clincheck. With the Invisalign Clincheck, you will be able to see for yourself how the treatment will straighten your teeth week by week along with showing you the expected results of the treatment. You will also be informed at the consultation on how long the treatment will roughly take and given a quote. However, you do not have to decide on the spot, as you will be sent a bespoke video that will explain to you the treatment in detail, ensuring that you are fully informed before starting the treatment.
If you decide to go ahead, you will then be asked to book an appointment where you will have a free 3D Invisalign scan. The purpose of the scan is to take accurate 3D impressions of your teeth in order to create the aligners which will be used throughout the treatment. Following this, you will be asked to give your consent and you will also receive a payment link to begin the treatment.
You can opt to have the aligners sent to your home or you can book another appointment to have your aligners fitted; the choice is up to you.
Over the course of the treatment, you will be required to change your aligners every two weeks in order to ease your teeth into a straighter position. Each set of aligners should be worn for a minimum of 20 hours a day and you are allowed to remove the aligners to eat and drink as normal. They are made to interfere in your lifestyle as little as possible.
There is also an app available for those who decide to undergo Invisalign London which allows you to monitor your progress saving you the hassle of booking any unnecessary appointments. With the app, you are able to receive ongoing support from experienced dental professionals and it gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have throughout the course of the treatment.
