What is Invisalign
Invisalign is a revolutionary teeth straightening system, using clear aligners to help you achieve your dream smile without compromising your lifestyle
These aligners guide your teeth into their desired position using light tension. Each bespoke aligner is laser cut with precision accuracy to fit your teeth and gums without irritation. They are made from highly advanced clear thermoplastic material, to ensure you have a confident smile, during your treatment.

Our patient journeys, here at One One Nine Family Dental are designed for a smooth and efficient treatment process with the highest quality of service that you’d expect. The following is what a typical Invisalign treatment plan would look like:
See your new smile with a free 3D scan
Included in your treatment is a no obligation free 3D scan with our iTero scanner, an intra-oral scan that is a non-invasive advanced scanning technology. We will use a scanning wand over your teeth which will take pictures of all angles of your teeth and generates a 3D model, including how they bite together. From this scan, we can generate an Invisalign simulation, accurately showing what your smile could look like with Invisalign treatment.Book your FREE 3D scan
To ensure your teeth remain straight after Invisalign treatment you will need to wear a retainer. A retainer is in the form of a removable plastic device which is worn at night and/or a fixed wire device that is fitted to the back of your teeth. If you lose or break the retainer, then it would need replacing. By wearing and maintaining your retainer, this will ensure your dream smile lasts a lifetime.
On average, an Invisalign case will take between 6-9 months to straighten teeth, however this can differ depending on the complexity of the case and your requirements. At your Invisalign consultation, your Invisalign doctor will give an idea of how long they believe your treatment will take.Back to contents list
The intra-oral scan that is completed before starting your treatment will indicate to your Invisalign Doctor if Invisalign treatment would be suitable based on your individual case and deliver the outcome you desire. Throughout your treatment, you will attend appointments so your Invisalign Doctor can ensure everything is progressing as it should. This allows them to adjust the treatment if needed.Back to contents list

With Invisalign, you are required to wear the aligners for 22 hours per day – only taking them out to eat and drink (excluding water). You will still be able to enjoy all your favourite food and drinks, however it is important to brush your teeth before putting your aligners back in as the sugar build up can lead to high chances of decay. It is also advised that patients do not smoke whilst undergoing their Invisalign treatment.Back to contents list
Some people will feel a little discomfort when they change their aligners, but for most people this is temporary as their teeth adjust to the new set of aligners. If the discomfort lasts for longer than a few days, contact your Invisalign Doctor.Back to contents list
Most people report no effect on speech. However, as with traditional orthodontics, there’s an initial adjustment period to having something new on your teeth.Back to contents list
