Clear Braces for adults
The first time you will visit our Dentists Orthodontics, the visit will be a fact-finding exercise and it will give you the chance to get to know the practice and our staff.
Our Dentists will assess your malocclusion by looking at your teeth, smile, and facial appearance.
The term ‘Malocclusion’ is where the lower and upper dental arches are misaligned when they meet each other as the jaws close. During this visit, the condition of your teeth and cleanliness will be examined.
Photographs are also taken too. Should X-rays be required, then these will either be taken during this appointment or you will be re-scheduled for an extra visit.
Our Dentists will cover the following sections during this visit:
Whether Orthodontics treatment will benefit you and the best timing for the treatment to commence.
How your teeth are different from what is considered to be a normal set of teeth.
The different types of treatments and their advantages
The duration of each treatment
Invisalign® like the name suggests uses a series of invisible, removable and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth. These are changed regularly where your teeth will move little by little until they have moved to the final position your dentist has prescribed.
These braces won’t cause you any discomfort to wear and are also removable so you can eat, drink, brush and floss as usual.
A typical Invisalign case takes about six months to a year for the treatment to be completed. Generally, you will see your dentist every 6-8 weeks to see how you are progressing.
After several appointments, additional aligners will be provided to continue your treatment.
