Invisalign™ is one of the world’s leading and most popular invisible brace systems, originating from the USA. With the help of 3D computer aided technology we digitally create a mock-up of your teeth and align them to prescription. Once you and your Invisalign dentist at Windsor Smiles are happy with the end result we start the clear aligner manufacturing process. You wear the aligner for 2 weeks at a time returning to ensure the teeth are moving as planned. After all the aligners are used the teeth should reach their desired position and then retainers are placed to hold the teeth in these positions long term.
To improve efficiency we sometimes add white filling material to the front of the teeth to help the trays engage with the tooth and move it in the desired direction.
To create space if needed we can either remove teeth, or ‘strip’ tiny amounts of enamel between a number of teeth to create space for the teeth to move. This is usually done progressively during the treatment to ensure we stay as minimal as possible.
