Invisalign is a comfortable orthodontic treatment designed to straighten your teeth discreetly. This system consists of a series of clear and removable aligners worn in sequence until your teeth are straightened. Invisalign uses software to calculate the result before you have even begun treatment. This digital process works out how many aligners are needed to straighten your teeth from the expected finished result.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign is a removable aligner system that can be taken out for drinking, eating, and social occasions. It is recommended that the aligners are worn for most of the day, as the longer they are left out, the longer it will take to correct your teeth. The aligners themselves are very similar to gum shields – the main difference is the material they are made from and that they are clear and nearly invisible when worn.

Why choose Invisalign?

Invisalign is the perfect discrete orthodontic option when it comes to straightening teeth. It has been designed for patients who want to correct their teeth but don’t want a mouth full of metal. However, transparent aligner systems come with some restrictions, as they are not as fast as straightening teeth as other orthodontic options. Unfortunately, the arch wire used in fixed braces can offer more effective and efficient straightening than their removable counterparts, meaning less time in treatment. At the Ascent Dental Care clinics in Loughborough, Tamworth, Solihull and Malvern, we offer fixed and discrete options, such as lingual braces and Six Month Smiles.
