New year, new smile with Invisalign

04/01/2022

Going into the new year can feel like a transformative time, and you may be wanting to improve your smile to get ready for it. Our team at Dental Surgery Burnham are so proud to offer our patients Invisalign as an option to help you achieve your new year, new smile Burnham. Blog

What is it?

Invisalign is one of the most popular treatments that we provide when it comes to straightening teeth. It involves the use of multiple clear, plastic aligners and each one is different, gently moving your teeth into a better position. The aligners are not fixed to your teeth, meaning that they are easily removable and allow you to change between the different aligners yourself.

The process

Consultation

To begin your new year, new smile Burnham Invisalign journey with us, we will first invite you to our practice for a consultation appointment. This is a vital step in the process as it means that we can get to know you and your needs, as well as examine and scan your teeth. We are proud to use an iTero scanner, which is a more modern technology that allows us to get an accurate impression of your teeth, all from a 3D scan. This makes it a lot easier and more comfortable for you when it comes to scanning and getting an impression of your teeth. We will also be able to show you what your new year, new smile Burnham should look like before we even begin!

Using the aligners

Once we have had the consultation with you and you would like to go ahead, we will send off your scans so that your customised aligners can be created. Once this has been done, about 2 weeks later, we will give you the first set of aligners and make sure you have all the information you need to begin.

We recommend that you usually wear each aligner for around 2 weeks, but this may vary depending on your individual needs. You will wear them for around 20 hours a day, removing them when it comes to eating and brushing your teeth etc. The total treatment time for Invisalign varies, but generally averages from 6 to 18 months. During this time, you will only need to visit us every 6 to 8 weeks for an appointment, so that we can give you more aligners when needed and check up on your progress.

Keeping your smile clean

When it comes to looking after your teeth and aligners during the treatment, it’s very simple. To look after your teeth, all you will need to do is remove your aligners, and brush and floss like normal. And when it comes to your aligners, you just simply brush them with your toothbrush and rinse them with cool water and you’re ready to go!

After the treatment

Once you have completed the treatment and are enjoying your new year, new smile Burnham, we highly recommend that you use a retainer. This is important because if you don’t use one, your teeth could move back to their original positions.
