How do Invisalign Full braces work?

Invisalign braces are not attached to the teeth by brackets, unlike the traditional metal braces. In place of these brackets, the Invisalign Full braces make use of clear plastic aligners arranged in series behind the teeth and are used to set the teeth into proper position carefully.

The shape of each aligner allows it to apply pressure to the teeth during the duration of treatment. A switch to a new aligner every 2 weeks might also be required by your dentist, to ensure the teeth is continually moving in its proper place.

How long does a dental treatment with Invisalign Full take?

Treatment with an Invisalign Full brace can take as long 12 – 18 months to have your teeth properly set. Within the duration of treatment, you will have to pay regular visits to your dentist at least every 4 – 8 weeks after the start of treatment to get the progress of your teeth checked. Orders will also be made by your dentist for a new set of aligners to be fitted on your visit

Depending on your need, and those of your dentist, a choice could be made to have small attachments fitted to your teeth during treatment to help the braces adjust your teeth faster and better. These attachments are what is most noticeable on the Invisalign Full braces.

Is everyone qualified for Invisalign treatment?

Not every person with irregular teeth is qualified to have an Invisalign brace treatment. The Invisalign treatment is extremely inclusive, and around 90% of orthodontic patients have the potential of being beneficiaries from this particular aligner system.

Benefits of Invisalign Clear Aligner Braces

  • Invisalign braces are nearly invisible and more hidden than the traditional metal braces.
  • The braces can be easily removed if needed, especially for special events, or if you need to take a quick photo.
  • Aligners need to stay on to the teeth for 20-22 hours per day to get a good result and require regular cleaning. With Invisalign braces, you can easily use a brush and floss to clean your teeth, without causing any damage.
  • Invisalign is more comfortable compared to many other traditional metal braces, which can cause your gums and teeth to become irritated and sore after only a few days from the start of treatment.

When is an alternative type of braces needed?

Most people can get an Invisalign brace fitted by a dentist; about 90% of orthodontic patients are suitable for an Invisalign treatment. But some situations might cause you to be uncomfortable with an Invisalign treatment, such as:

  • If you need to move your teeth vertically
  • If you rotate your teeth
  • Correcting severe dental malocclusions
  • If you are not comfortable keeping your aligners in for the prescribed 20-22 hours daily

There are simple ways to check your suitability for Invisalign braces. You can call 020 71834091 or visit us at Harley Street, London, to get assessed by a skilled and experienced dentist. If you need to have alternative braces fitted, we can advise you on the best brand suitable for you.
