Since having braces removed when I was younger my teeth have changed - can Invisalign be used to fix this?

Certainly, a lot of patients opt for Invisalign because it offers a discreet way to reclaim their beautiful smiles. It’s become quite popular among people worldwide as a go-to solution for restoring their teeth to their former glory. The great thing about Invisalign is that it works its magic quietly and subtly. So this gives you the confidence to show off your smile. This is without drawing attention to the fact that you’re undergoing treatment.

Is Invisalign painful?

When it comes to Invisalign, it operates by gently applying a continuous but gentle force to guide your teeth into their proper alignment. Now, we won’t sugarcoat it – when you switch to a new set of aligners, you might experience some discomfort for the first few days. But here’s the silver lining: that discomfort is actually a positive sign! It means the aligners are doing their job. By actively working to move your teeth and bring them closer to their desired position. So, hang in there and embrace the temporary discomfort. Because it’s a clear signal that your smile transformation is well underway!

Can I only wear my aligners at night?

To achieve the desired movement and ensure effective results, it’s important to wear your aligners diligently. This means clocking in around 20 to 22 hours a day. We know it sounds like a lot, but trust us, it’s worth it! By committing to this recommended wearing schedule, you allow the aligners to work their magic. This is by them gently applying consistent pressure to your teeth. Then this continuous pressure is what facilitates the necessary adjustments. By gradually guiding your teeth into their desired positions. So, make sure to prioritise wearing your aligners for the majority of your day. This is to ensure you’re on track for a successful and satisfying treatment journey.

What happens when I'm done with Invisalign treatment?

Once you’ve completed your treatment and achieved that beautiful, straight smile you’ve always wanted, it’s important to remember that the journey doesn’t stop there. To preserve stunning results and prevent any unwanted shifting, wearing a retainer becomes a crucial part of maintaining your perfect smile. The retainer acts as a protective shield, ensuring that your teeth stay in their newly aligned positions. By faithfully wearing your retainer as instructed, you actively contribute to the long-term success and durability of your smile transformation. This safeguards the time and effort you invested in your treatment. So, embrace your retainer as a partner in preserving your radiant smile. Then enjoy the confidence that comes with knowing you’re taking the necessary steps to keep your smile looking flawless.
