How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign is an alternative to braces. They are transparent, removable aligners designed to straighten your teeth without the restrictions that come with metal braces. If you’re looking for Invisalign in Manchester, Bespoke Dental Clinic are your number one choice. Let’s find out more about this treatment and discover how we can help you on your journey to a perfect smile.

What Does Invisalign Look Like?

Invisalign clear aligners are almost invisible – hence their clever name. They are made from a flexible, patented thermoplastic called SmartTrackTM, which was created exclusively to be used for Invisalign. The plastic itself is thin, meaning once they’re placed in your mouth, they are virtually unnoticeable.

You can go about your day as you would normally without you or anyone else noticing that they’re there. They might take a little getting used to at first, but they won’t affect your speech due to their snug fit around your teeth. Invisalign is the perfect option for those who want to transform their smiles without any hassle.

How Does Invisalign Move Teeth?

The process is simple. During the consultation with one of our specialists, a digital treatment plan is created that is unique to you and your teeth. It is used to determine your teeth’s exact movements to ensure that the Invisalign made for you will transform and straighten your smile.

After that, your unique clear aligners are created to apply the correct amount of force to the specific place at the right time in line with your plan. Your dentist at Bespoke Dental Clinic will be monitoring your progress every step of the way to ensure the Invisalign is working correctly.

Does Invisalign Work for Crowded Teeth?

If you don’t have enough room in your jaw for your teeth, they can become crowded. Teeth may get pushed to the front or back of your mouth, or even bunch up, overlap and twist. Because of this, it becomes harder to brush or floss, and you can end up with a build-up of plaque, harmful bacteria, and tartar. Invisalign isn’t just used for aesthetic purposes; if you have crowded teeth, you can use Invisalign to straighten them. By doing this, you’re preventing your crowded teeth from worsening and leading to gum disease or tooth decay.

Can Invisalign Move Teeth Vertically?

Whilst this is a more complicated movement, Invisalign can move your teeth vertically. The vertical adjustments will more than likely take longer to correct, but it is possible. Our experienced dentists will monitor your progress and ensure you’re achieving the results you’re looking for. We can upgrade your Invisalign treatment regularly, so your teeth are being correctly efficiently. Get in touch with our friendly, professional team to find out more about what we can do for you.

How Long Does Invisalign Take?

Although this sounds like a slow process, it doesn’t take as long as you may think. The majority of patients start to notice results after just a couple of weeks. A full course of treatment is usually around 12 months, but a few factors can affect this.

  • Teeth Crowding and Gaps. As mentioned, Invisalign does work for people with crowded teeth; however, the more your teeth need to move, the longer it will take. For this reason, people with gaps in their teeth may also find it takes longer to notice results.
  • Conformity to Your Dentists’ Plan. You need to wear your Invisalign for 22 hours of the day. You should only take them out to eat, drink, or clean, and place them back in your mouth straight after. If you don’t stick to this, you may not see any results and find that your teeth regress to their original position.
  • Age. If you’re a teenager thinking of going through with Invisalign, you are likely to see results faster due to the fact you’re still growing, meaning your teeth can move easier than adults.

Despite these factors, some people may find their teeth move quicker than expected and could see their smile transformed within a few months.
