Are you looking for a dentist in Liverpool that can provide Invisalign consultations and treatments? Fiveways Dental Practice are Invisalign Liverpool specialists so if you’re keen to get the smile you always wanted without the intrusion of braces, we’re the right choice for you!
What is Invisalign?
Created as an alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign is a near invisible option for re-aligning teeth that minimises intrusion while still achieving excellent results.
The technology is centred around custom-made clear aligners created through 3D printing with Invisalign’s proprietary SmartTrack material. These aligners are tailored to suit your teeth and fit snugly to your gums. They work by gently re-aligning and rotating your teeth on a gradual basis, with movements so slight that you’ll barely notice them!
The Invisalign Process
If you’re interested in becoming an Invisalign patient at Fiveways, you’ll first come in for an initial consultation which will be used to determine if it’s the right choice for you.
Following this, an impression of your teeth will be made with an iTero digital scanner that maps the minute details of your teeth alignment and creates a 3D model of your mouth. This 3D model is then imported into a 3D printer to create a series of bespoke and precise Invisalign aligners.
Moving forward, you will be required to wear your aligners for around 22 hours a day, removing them easily when you need to brush your teeth, floss, and eat. While the aligners are inserted, they will work invisibly and without disruption to correct crookedness, crowding, and gaps in your teeth.
Every 2 weeks, you’ll swap your aligners out for a new set that fits your already changed teeth and the process will continue until your smile is where you want it to be, usually taking only around 12 months!
The Benefits of Invisalign
You might be thinking ‘Invisalign sounds great, but what are the actual benefits over normal braces?’
Luckily, we’re here to answer that!
The most obvious benefit is their discretion. Compared to traditional metal braces that sit on the front of the teeth in plain sight, Invisalign is just about invisible.
Not only is it discreet, Invisalign is very easily removable which means that, again unlike braces, you can take them out every time you clean your teeth or eat. This is a huge benefit in terms of dental hygiene as braces often cause further decay while attached due to the difficulty of brushing/flossing.
Another key benefit is the precision that Invisalign offers. The initial 3D tooth scan picks up every misalignment and projects a realignment plan that involves several iterations of slightly different aligners. As this is all mapped out before treatment begins, you’ll know what progress you’ll make before it’s even made!
Finally, you can use the proprietary My Invisalign Smile app to keep track of your journey and keep up to date with progress.
