What Does Invisalign Do?

What is Invisalign?

Invialign is a game-changer for those seeking a discreet, virtually invisible solution for orthodontic treatment. Unlike the conventional metal braces that have been the mainstay of orthodontic treatment for decades, Invisalign offers a less noticeable, more comfortable, and more aesthetically pleasing alternative. This revolutionary dental technology, offered by Lion Dental in Stourbridge, consists of a series of clear, removable aligners customised to fit your teeth, gradually moving them to their ideal position over time.

The beauty of Invisalign lies in its simplicity. The aligners are easy to use and maintain. They can be removed when eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing, making your daily oral hygiene routine hassle-free. They are also comfortable to wear, with no metal brackets or wires to cause discomfort or irritation. This makes Invisalign an excellent choice for those seeking a seamless integration of orthodontic treatment into their daily lives.

How does it Work?

The process of Invisalign treatment at Lion Dental begins with a detailed consultation. Our team of experts will evaluate your dental structure, discuss your orthodontic goals, and explain how Invisalign can help achieve them. We use advanced 3D imaging technology to map out your treatment plan, showing you the step-by-step transformation of your smile, even before the treatment begins.

Once the treatment plan is finalised, a series of custom-made, clear aligners are created for you. These aligners are made of a special BPA-free plastic that’s smooth and comfortable. You will wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will gradually move – week by week, millimetre by millimetre – until they have straightened to the final position prescribed by your dental professional.

At Lion Dental, we understand that each patient is unique, and so is their treatment plan. The duration of your Invisalign treatment will depend on your specific needs and goals, but the average case takes about 12 to 18 months. Throughout the course of your treatment, you will visit us at our Stourbridge clinic every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.

The Benefits for Dental Transformation

The benefits of Invisalign go beyond just straightening your teeth. It has a profound impact on your dental health, confidence, and overall quality of life. One of the primary benefits of Invisalign is its discreet nature. The clear aligners are virtually invisible, allowing you to undergo orthodontic treatment without anyone noticing. This can be a significant confidence booster, especially for adults and teenagers who may feel self-conscious about wearing traditional braces.

Invisalign aligners are not only inconspicuous but also removable. This flexibility allows you to maintain your oral hygiene routine without any hindrance, reducing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease associated with traditional braces. You can also enjoy your favourite foods without any restrictions, making the treatment process more enjoyable and less disruptive to your lifestyle.

Perhaps the most remarkable benefit of Invisalign is its efficacy. Despite being less intrusive and more comfortable than traditional braces, it can effectively treat a wide range of dental issues, from minor tooth movements to more complex cases. Whether you have overcrowding, widely spaced teeth, or a more complex issue like overbite, underbite, or crossbite, Invisalign can help transform your smile and improve your oral health.
