How Invisalign Treatment is done

Invisalign treatment involves wearing sets of transparent aligners that are designed to shift your teeth into their proper position gradually. The Invisalign braces are designed to be worn every two weeks, after which patients are expected to get new sets of aligners for the next two weeks.

Time of treatment

The time of treatment with Invisalign depends on the complexity of the misalignment of a patient’s teeth. Usually wearing Invisalign could take as long as 22 months, which depends on how long it takes for the teeth to shift into the right position or be corrected.

Types of Invisalign Braces

  • Invisalign full– the Invisalign full is the most common type of Invisalign braces. The Invisalign full braces are used to treat more severe cases of orthodontic conditions of a patient. The treatment time could take as long as twelve to eighteen months. However, this is dependent on the kind of orthodontic condition of a patient.
  • Invisalign Lite- the Invisalign lite is used to treat lesser orthodontic conditions. The Invisalign lite uses a fixed number of braces to correct small misalignment issues and may not take as long as the Invisalign full to correct.
  • Invisalign teen– the Invisalign teen, is designed specially to accommodate the growing changes in the teeth and jaws of teenagers.
  • Invisalign i7– this is used for minor dental conditions such as slight overcrowding issues and probably a single crooked tooth.

Benefits of Invisalign Braces

  • Invisalign braces are comfortable to wear

The Invisalign braces or aligners are very comfortable to wear as they do not come in metal wires or straps. They are easy to take off during sleep or when trying to eat.

  • Faster results

With Invisalign braces, you do not need to wear braces for a very long time. The Invisalign braces start work immediately, which means that results can be achieved in a few months.

  • Custom made Invisalign aligners

At Chatfield, our dentists are experienced enough to take impressions of your teeth to make custom made Invisalign aligners for better fitting, faster and safer treatment.

  • Invisalign are virtually invisible

  • Removable aligners

Invisalign braces are easy to maintain as they can be easily removed, making it easy to clean, brush and maintain proper hygiene.

  • Aesthetics

Invisalign braces have better aesthetics to that of the regular metal braces

Invisalign vs Fixed Braces

Fixed braces are also great because it exerts just the right pressure for your teeth to be straightened. In as much as fixed braces are used for extreme cases of misalignment, not everyone would want other people to know they wear braces. For people who wouldn’t want others to know they wear braces, they tend to go for Invisalign because of its discreet nature. However, some people may like the colour burst that fixed braces give to their teeth, especially the metal braces while others want to be less conscious, so they would prefer invisible braces.

For those who would still want their braces to be invisible can go for ceramic or clear glass braces; though these type of braces are more expensive than metal braces, it can still serve the same invisibility purposes. Unlike the fixed braces, Invisalign braces are a bit more expensive than the regular fixed braces. Invisalign braces are also used for misalignment cases but not for very severe cases such as crossbites and malocclusions. In such severe cases, fixed cases might do the work.

Invisalign is used for lesser or minor cases such as gappy teeth and minor cases of an underbite. Most patients would prefer using Invisalign because they are removable and easy to clean. Unlike the fixed braces that are not easy to clean as most times, food is trapped by the braces and could take a long time to clean up to avoid bacteria build up. So at this point Invisalign comes in handy because, with Invisalign, there can be no limitation as to what you eat or drink as long as the teeth are cleaned or flossed before wearing the Invisalign back.

Treatment with Invisalign could take a little longer than that of fixed braces because, with Invisalign braces, the teeth tend to move gradually. Treatments with Invisalign can take as long as 18- 22 months compared to the conventional fixed braces that can take a shorter period of about 6-12 months, however, the duration is dependent on the severity of the treatments. Also, treatment for Invisalign can take longer where the patient defaults in wearing his or her Invisalign braces for the recommended hours up to 22 hours daily.

Treatment cost with Invisalign

The cost of treatment with Invisalign is dependent on the severity of a patient’s case. A patient who desires to be treated with Invisalign would need to come to the clinic for consultation with one of our orthodontists’ to measure the severity of the patient’s orthodontic condition. So whenever a question is raised on how much Invisalign braces cost at Chatfield, we would answer “it depends” because we cannot tell you an exact amount when we do not know how severe the case may be or the type of Invisalign a patient is likely to use.

Cost of Invisalign braces can be roughly calculated to be from £3000-$5000, because of the kind of technology involved with Invisalign braces. At Chatfield, payment for Invisalign can be made less stressful as there are a variety of payment options. Contact Chatfield to learn more about the different payment plans for Invisalign braces.

How safe is Invisalign

Invisalign braces are very safe. Invisalign braces have been in use since the 90s in so many countries worldwide. At first, the braces might feel a little bit tight( especially if a patient forgets to wear them), but the discomfort is something that can be managed and even short-lived. Usually, with Invisalign, patients rarely complain of any form of discomfort because Invisalign can be removed at any time if they cause any discomfort to the patient. This is unlike fixed braces, which may cause some discomfort for patients that wear them.
