The Invisalign, no braces, procedure involves four simple steps
These steps have been developed by Enhance Dental to provide you optimum results to achieve beautiful straight teeth with Invisalign:
STEP 1 Make an appointment at Enhance Dental for your comprehensive Invisalign consultation
Our accredited Invisalign provider, Dr Joseph Paino decides if Invisalign, no braces is right for you. We will show you our vast variety of patients that have had Invisalign treatment over the past 10 years to help ensure you are 100% confident to proceed to the next step.
STEP 2 Enhance Dental produces your customised computer treatment plan
After your records appointment Enhance Dental will develop a treatment plan carefully customised to your specific needs.
Correction of protruded teeth
Correction of flared teethThe advanced Invisalign software (Clincheck) shows your actual situation and how it can correct your teeth. Below are examples of dental spacing and crowding concerns.
STEP 3 Wear the Invisalign aligners to gradually create your brand new smile
Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign carefully translates Enhance dental’s instructions into a series of precisely customised aligners. Before you even start Invisalign treatment we show you the improvements in your crowded, crooked, buck or gapped teeth with our advanced computer software. You can view every movement needed to make your teeth straight.
STEP 4 Continue smiling and enjoy your beautiful straight teeth
You then wear each set of Invisalign aligners every one to two weeks depending on each individual situation. Your teeth will move gradually – week by week, millimetre by millimetre – until you’ve achieved a straighter teeth. Once you start wearing the Invisalign aligners we usually see you one month after that then you only need to visit Enhance Dental every 8 to 12 weeks on average. Generally, you visit us no more than you would with braces and the length of treatment is about the same. In some cases it takes less time than braces. Unlike metal or clear braces, Invisalign treatment allows your teeth to remain visible over the entire Invisalign procedure as they gradually become straighter. On average it usually takes 6 to 18 months to complete orthodontic treatment with Invisalign – the clear alternative to braces.
After you achieve straight teeth with Invisalign a retainer should be worn at night life-long to help keep your teeth straight. The retainer Enhance Dental recommends is made by Invisalign and is almost identical to your Invisalign treatment aligners except that it is only 0.3mm thicker. This high quality retainer is called a Vivera retainer.
