Invisalign treatment in Cannock

There are several options available in modern orthodontics to straighten the teeth and get a more attractive smile. Modern orthodontics provides a subtle way to straighten the teeth without wires and fixed metal braces. One of the modern orthodontic treatments available is Invisalign braces.

Invisalign is available at Inspire Dental Centre, and we are accredited Invisalign providers in Burntwood and Cannock.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a great and modern solution for straightening teeth. Invisalign uses a series of the removable aligner to shift the teeth into their right position gently. The aligners are transparent and virtually invisible. With Invisalign, you don't have to worry about the "train-track" look common to traditional metal braces.

How are Invisalign braces made?

Invisalign aligners are made of a unique thermoplastic material. The aligners are similar to teeth whitening trays. Each Invisalign aligner is made to fit each patient's need specifically.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign treatment requires a series of aligners. Each Aligner has to be worn for 1-2 weeks before exchanging it for a new set. The aligners will gradually move the teeth until it becomes straight.

For Invisalign aligners to be effective, they have to be worn for at least 20 – 22 hours daily until treatment is completed. The aligners should only be removed when you want to eat or drink anything other than water, and when you want to brush or floss your teeth.

What kind of misalignment can Invisalign correct?

Invisalign can be used in the correction of different dental issues such as

  • Crossbite
  • Gapped teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Open bite

If your misalignment is complicated, you may have to use clear, fixed or lingual braces.

Advantages of Invisalign

Invisalign can be as effective as traditional metal braces for correcting misalignments, but it also offers the following advantages over traditional braces

  • Almost invisible
  • Comfortable to wear
  • Faster treatment
  • Removable

What is the cost of Invisalign treatment?

The cost of Invisalign treatment varies, and it depends on the type of correction you need. During your initial consultation, our dentist at Inspire Dental Centre will discuss your specific need with you, and you will be given an estimate of how much it will cost to get an Invisalign aligner if you are suitable for treatment with it.
