Would you like to have straighter teeth, but are put off by the idea of fixed metal braces? Invisalign is the popular system of clear aligners that are almost invisible when you are wearing them – so no-one needs to know they are there at all.
What is the Invisalign system?
Invisalign uses custom made, transparent aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth. They are barely visible when in place and are changed every one or two weeks as they gently straighten your teeth. And the best thing is you can eat whatever you want to, and take them out whenever you need to - for that important meeting or social occasion.
What to expect when you have treatment using Invisalign?
Dr Marie Heintz is a highly skilled orthodontist and a leading specialist in the use of Invisalign. Before beginning any work she will carefully check your oral health and take impressions and scans of your teeth.
Using specialist 3D technology you will be shown how your teeth will move and also how they will look after treatment. Dr Heintz will discuss your priorities and vision, to create a personalised treatment plan that’s right for your lifestyle. We will then provide you with a series of bespoke clear aligners that are replaced every one or two weeks, as your teeth progress into position.
Monitoring Your Progress
We will carefully monitor your progress every step of the way, and our aim is to give you the smile you’ve always wanted. We use a mixture of face to face appointments, video consultations and specialist software that allows us to track your progress via your smartphone.
We know that the results you will see are dependent on the expertise of your orthodontist, and Dr Heintz is highly experienced treating both minor and complex cases of misalignment using the Invisalign system. Treatment times vary between around 9-14 months, but you will start noticing a difference within a few weeks.
