Invisalign Braces to Straighten Teeth in Colindale

Crooked and protruding teeth can be upsetting and cause embarrassment. Now, there’s a revolutionary new way to straighten teeth quickly and invisibly.

Unlike traditional metal braces which are fixed to your teeth, Invisalign braces are a series of thin clear plastic braces that are practically invisible to other people.

Invisalign transparent braces work by sitting over the top of your teeth and you remove them to eat, drink and brush your teeth. Whilst these braces are removable, we suggest only taking them out for the minimal amount of time as they need to be worn for at least 21 hours a day to work.

Invisalign braces can treat most orthodontic cases including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Protruding teeth
  • Gaps which need to be closed
  • Problems with a bite such as an overbite, underbite or crossbite

How do Invisalign braces work in Edgware?

Your teeth will be photographed and X-Rayed. 3D images of your teeth will be taken using a special scanner and this helps to form the basis for your Invisalign treatment.

Your treatment plan will show upfront how, on a weekly basis, your teeth will move and change whilst you are wearing the braces. Using this information, a series of clear aligners will be custom-made for you. You will need to change your aligners on a weekly basis which allow for the gradual movement in your teeth.

The Invisalign treatment plan makes it possible to understand just how long you should be wearing your braces for. Most people complete their treatment time between 9 and 12 months.

Benefits of Invisalign braces in Colindale

Invisalign braces have many benefits:

  • Made from clear plastic, these braces are practically invisible meaning other people do not need to know that you’re having your teeth straightened, unless you want them to!
  • Treatment time with Invisalign braces is generally quicker than fixed braces and most patients complete their treatment within months

Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign Braces 

Will Invisalign braces hurt?
No. It may take a few days to get used to wearing your Invisalign braces, and during this time, you may notice some pressure on your teeth. When you come to change your Invisalign braces, you may notice that your new set of aligners feel tight on your teeth and this is because your teeth are adapting to the newly positioned aligners. Paracetamol or painkillers can help to alleviate any discomfort that you may have.
How do I clean my Invisalign braces?
When you take your Invisalign braces out to clean your teeth, you can also clean your braces using a toothbrush and toothpaste to gently scrub at both sides of your braces.
How long will it take to straighten my teeth with Invisalign braces?
Each patient is different, but most people find that they complete their treatment between 9 and 12 months. Your dentist will be able to give you a more detailed answer using your bespoke Invisalign plan. This will show you upfront how your teeth will move on a week by week basis and how long the treatment will take.
