Invisalign are clear, plastic aligners which align the teeth into a desired position.Invisalignisvery discreet, and it is virtually impossible to notice that somebody is wearing them. Invisalign Full is also a very effective method of getting the smile you want in the most inconspicuous way possible, in contrast to conventional metal braces.
Thinking of having your teeth straightened? At Chatfield, we help adults and teenagers who want to straighten their teeth without using conspicuous metal wires. As long as you can wear the aligners for the time required, you may benefit from usingInvisalign Full. These Invisalign Full braces are designed to treat a variety of orthodontic issues. In this article, we will cover some basic information about them and their different uses.
Invisalign Full is quite different from the regular traditional metal braces that use metal wires and brackets to straighten the teeth. Invisalign braces consist of transparent plastic trays(aligners) that are used to correct dental misalignment. The Invisalign Full braces are usually customised for each patient, usually by using mouth scanners and 3D prints, which are used to generate a bespoke treatment plan.
To achieve optimal results, Invisalign Full braces are worn for about eight to twelve months, coupled with dental check-ups. These are important to monitor the progress of the treatment, and also to provide new sets of braces as required. Each tray is typically worn for two to four weeks, and will slightly re-align the teeth until the desired result is achieved. A thorough dental check-up is important to ensure you are a good candidate for Invisalign; as some issues may need to be addressed prior to treatment.
Apart from the Invisalign Full braces, other types of Invisalign braces can be used to treat orthodontic issues.
This is very similar to the Invisalign Full, but comes with certain features to encourage teenagers to complete their treatments, including making more use of colour.
The InvisalignLite braces are usually for simpler or minor cases, and areonly worn for around seven months.
The i7 is designed for treating simpler cases of misalignment. The i7 uses about seven aligners for treatment up to about three months. However, your dentist will be able to advise you whether this is a suitable option.
The NHS does not cover the cost of treatment judged to be cosmetic. Treatment with Invisalign Full braces is usually therefore paid for privately. If you are interested in having your teeth straightened with Invisalign Full braces, feel free tp contact our team today for a rough idea of the price. The overall fee for treatment is typically in the region of £2,000- £5,000. However, it all depends on how many aligners you require and the complexity of your case. We also offer payment plan systems to make getting the smile you want more affordable.
If Invisalign Full is outside of your budget, we also offer a range of excellent alternatives which will also give you a brilliant new smile. Some of these are outlined below:
Lingual Braces-these are also known as “incognito” braces.This type of braces is designed with their brackets hidden at the back of the teeth. Unlike the conventional braces which are visibly fixed to the front of the teeth, the lingual braces work their magic from behind. They shift the teeth into the desired position using the same principles, but much more discreetly. Although lingual braces do have some disadvantages, such as sometimes causing a sore tongue or affecting speech, these areusually relatively minor and manageable for most patients.
Clear Braces– they are very similar to conventional metal braces, but they are made of clear ceramic and glass materials that appear transparent and are therefore very discreet. These clear braces are a good option for those who may find the Invisalign Full outside of their budget.
However, before deciding on the type of braces, it is best to consult your dentist who will be able to guide you on the different options, and what is best for your needs.
