Show off your smile, not your braces! To straighten your smile almost invisibly, Invisalign is a revolutionary treatment
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment uses a series of nearly invisible, custom-made aligners that can straighten your teeth without using traditional metal wires or brackets. The clear aligners are removable, so you can take them out when you need to eat or brush your teeth. It’s an excellent option for adults and teenagers who want straighter teeth without noticeable metal wires and brackets. We provide Invisalign treatments at Dove Dental & Wellbeing Spa, feel free to contact us for more information.
Conditions Treated With Invisalign Include:
Invisalign can address several orthodontic issues, including:
- Misaligned teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Open bite
- Gapped teeth
Invisalign Treatment Procedure
If our dentist agrees that you are a good candidate for Invisalign, you will begin with a consultation. In this consultation, you will be able to see what your teeth look like before, during, and after treatment on a 3D screen. Your teeth impressions will then be sent to a lab to create your custom Invisalign retainers. From there, you’ll just wear your retainer for the allotted amount of time, returning to switch them out every few weeks until your treatment is over. Throughout your treatment, you will be given a set of removable aligners that look a bit like retainers. The system uses thermoplastic material to gradually straighten your teeth.
How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Take?
To keep the straightening process going, your aligners need to be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day. You can remove them for eating or brushing your teeth, but if taken out too much, treatment won’t be as effective. The total treatment time averages from nine to 15 months but can take as little as 3 months depending on the type of Invisalign aligners you have.

Are Invisalign Aligners Comfortable?
When you wear Invisalign aligners, it feels like you have nothing on your teeth. They’re comfortable and easy to care for, too. You can eat, drink and brush just as you normally would—including with toothpaste. Plus, most people can’t even tell you’re wearing them! It should come as no surprise that they’re one of our most popular treatment options at Dove Dental & Wellbeing Spa in Earlsfield. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
Will The Aligner Affect My Speech?
A vast majority of patients do not experience an impact on their speech when wearing an aligner, due to its plastic material. If you’re concerned about your speech being affected by Invisalign treatment, it’s best to discuss it with your dentist during your initial consultation. They will be able to determine whether or not Invisalign is right for you based on several factors such as teeth alignment and jaw shape.
How Do You Clean Invisalign?
Clean your aligners by brushing and rinsing them in lukewarm water, with either special tablets or hydrogen peroxide and letting them soak for 30 minutes. Make sure to brush your teeth after each meal before re-inserting your aligners.
How Often Should Aligners Be Worn?
For most patients, aligners are worn for about 22 hours each day and removed only for eating, drinking, brushing teeth and attending dental appointments. For example, if you wear aligners every day according to your treatment plan, then you would remove them at bedtime. This schedule allows enough time for your teeth to move gradually into their new positions over a period of months. However, some people choose to wear their aligners longer than recommended to speed up their treatment process. Although you could complete your entire Invisalign treatment in less time by wearing aligners longer than recommended, it is not advisable since doing so can cause damage or discomfort to your teeth and gums.
Benefits of Invisible Treatment
