18 Feb Can my dentist in Islington provide Invisalign?
If you are looking for a non-invasive treatment to help straighten your smile, then we are proud to offer Invisalign as a potential option for you. This treatment consists of us giving you a set of custom-made aligners that fit perfectly around your teeth. These aligners are worn for around 22 hours a day, and you transition between the different stages yourself from the comfort of your own home.
How does it all work?
The first step of your Invisalign journey with us will be a consultation meeting with our dentist in Islington, this is important as it allows us to examine your teeth and make sure you are eligible for the treatment. We will take various scans of your teeth, using 3D technology as well as X-rays, we can then see which teeth need to be repositioned and how long it will roughly take. During this consultation meeting, you may also be able to see a scan of what your teeth should look like at the end of the treatment.
If everything goes well in the consultation meeting, and you would like to start Invisalign with us, then your dentist in Islington will send off your scans to the dental laboratory for your aligners to be created. You should then expect to receive them around 2 weeks afterwards and your Invisalign journey can begin! As mentioned above, you will be given a few different aligners that you will go through as the treatment goes on. The number of aligners you receive all depends on your needs.
You may receive more aligners later on in the treatment if your dentist in Islington thinks that it is necessary. The average treatment time varies from 6-18 months, and this comes down to your individual needs. If your teeth are more severely misaligned, you will need more aligners for example.
Our staff at Dental Beauty Islington are dedicated to improving your oral health, and making sure you feel comfortable throughout the process. If you are debating getting Invisalign, contact our dental practice today and we can help you to begin your journey to straighter teeth!
What are the advantages?
There are many great benefits for you to enjoy when you have Invisalign with us, whether it is for health or for aesthetic reasons. One of the main advantages is the ease of the whole process, there are no invasive surgeries, and you can carry it out all from the comfort of your own home. The treatment simply consists of us taking some scans of your teeth, and giving you your aligners. To add to this, during the whole 6-18 month process, you will only have to visit our dentist in Islington every 6-8 weeks, which is great if you have a busier schedule or are nervous about coming to the practice.
Another advantage that our patients enjoy with Invisalign is how the aligners look during the treatment. Due to the soft, clear plastic material that is used, they are nearly invisible to other people, which is great if you tend to be a more self-conscious person.
