Patients could be a good candidate for Invisalign in Gainsborough if they wish to have a straighter set of teeth. Invisalign is a treatment that can be used by people of any age, as there is never a wrong time to invest in a person’s smile. This treatment is an invisible way to straighten teeth and achieve a new and improved smile. Advanced technology means that this treatment is easier than ever to use and incorporates the most up to date technology. Patients are assured that they are following an individual treatment plan that is suitable for their unique smile. The clear aligners that are made to fit over each set of teeth are given to the patient to genty force the teeth into their correct smile. Each aligner is worn for a period of one to two weeks before it is replaced by the next aligner, this gradually moves the teeth into their proper position. Patients with a deep bite, over crowding and crossbite could benefit from this treatment to remedy the incorrect placement of their teeth.

How does it work?

Invisalign in Gainsborough requires some preparation work to ensure that the treatment is as effective as it can be. A series of photos, X-rays and digital scans are used to create an image of the current layout of the teeth. Dental impressions of the teeth can also be taken to add to this image. A 3D treatment plan will then be created for each patient. The same 3D image will be used to create the series of custom aligners. The aligners are then shipped to the practice and will then be given to the patient so they can wear them at home. These aligners are then changed every 1-2 weeks until the cycle has been completed in the correct order. Check ups are required every 6-8 weeks to check that the teeth are moving as they should and a set of new aligners will also be issued at these appointments. Once the treatment has finished patients will be required to wear retainers to ensure that the teeth do not move back.
