Many patients at Etwall Dental Practice have experienced crooked and overlapped teeth. Alongside the notable aesthetic confidence issues, if these problems are left untreated, they may affect the health of your teeth and gums as they become increasingly difficult to clean. Traditionally, Etwall Dental Practice has offered unsightly fixed braces to combat this issue. Despite their effectiveness, patients have felt self-conscious about using this permanent solution.
Today, our dental experts are proud to offer the Invisalign treatment. The Invisalign treatment allows you to transform your smile in a discreet and comfortable manner with near invisible, custom-made aligners that can straighten your teeth without using traditional metal wires or brackets
The Invisalign Process
The first step is to consult with dental professionals, who will determine your suitability for the Invisalign treatment. During this time, Etwall Dental Practice will be able to answer any queries you may have about the Invisalign treatment. Should the treatment be deemed appropriate for you following an examination of your teeth and gums, an oral impression will be made to fabricate your bespoke Invisalign braces.
Step Two – The iTero Scanner
At this point, dental experts will use the cutting-edge iTero Scanner to provide stunningly accurate future look at results, following your Invisalign treatment. A safe and reliable procedure, the iTero Scanner is an efficient alternative to traditional impressions. The main benefit of using this technology is that your dental professional can provide braces that are highly bespoke and customised, making the wear of Invisalign braces far more comfortable.
How does the iTero Scanner Work?
The ground-breaking device utilises optical scanning and lasers to capture a highly-detailed and accurate impression of your teeth. Using hundreds of thousands of laser points, the iTero Scanner creates a precise digital model of your entire mouth. For those worried about getting traditional impressions, the iTero Scanner is ideal in offsetting any concern. By opting for this procedure, you can ensure your Invisalign aligners will fit your teeth without discomfort. Secondly, this procedure helps ensure your aligners are crafted faster. The iTero Scanner uses ClinCheck set-ups, which means
your images are immediately sent to an Invisalign manufacturer, allowing for quicker receipt of your aligners. Importantly, dental experts will also have the ability to make adjustments to digital impressions, to confirm you’re receiving the correct aligners to help restore your smile.
The iTero Scanner is a highly-valuable device for all patients considering Invisalign treatment. If you’re considering treatment, enquire with Etwall Dental Practice for more information on how gain the best results using this treatment.
From there, a follow up appointment will be scheduled, during which you will receive your Invisalign aligners and be advised on how best to use them. It’s important you continue to wear your aligners for 20-22 hours a day, only removing them to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As the weeks go by, your dental experts will book subsequent adjustment sessions to ensure your teeth will move – little by little, until they have straightened to the final position originally prescribed.
The Final Stage
Following weeks of treatment, you will enter into a refinement stage, whereby our dental experts will ensure minor adjustments are made, so the treatment remains a success. Often, we will recommend wearing additional Invisalign trays, to maintain the effectiveness of the treatment.
When the treatment comes to an end, Etwall Dental Practice experts will request a consultation, to discuss how to keep your teeth in the same position for the foreseeable future. To prevent further movement, permanent or removable retainers will be offered to you. The two types of retainers may suit certain lifestyles, so we’ll be sure to talk you through what we feel is the most effective option to keep your teeth aligned.
