Thinking about improving your smile? Find out more about teeth straightening

Crooked or misaligned teeth might be making you miserable, but there are a number of treatments nowadays that can straighten and improve your smile. Many people have problems with overcrowding or crooked teeth, so you are most definitely not alone.  Rather than worry about your smile, to the point where it affects your confidence, why not find out more about the teeth straightening options available to you?

At Dentalia we offer Invisalign - a system of nearly undetectable clear aligners that gradually move your teeth into a more preferable position.  This teeth straightening solution is popular the world over, due to its discreet aligners and ease of use.

Let’s explore this treatment further so you can consider whether it might be appropriate for you.

How does Invisalign differ from other teeth straightening treatments?

Unlike traditional braces, which feature wires and brackets, Invisalign is an innovative treatment which uses removable and virtually invisible aligners.  You can easily remove your aligners to clean them and your teeth and gums effectively, so there is no need to adjust to having permanent braces in your mouth.  You don’t have to change the way you brush or floss and can continue to enjoy your favourite foods.

How long will the treatment take?

Depending on how complex the issue is, you could complete your treatment in as little as six months, though in many cases it will take longer for the teeth to reach the desired position.  As Invisalign aligners are changed every one to two weeks to help gradually move the teeth, you may start to notice a difference just a few weeks into your treatment.

It is worth remembering that even after your aligner treatment is finished, you will be advised to wear a retainer for a period of time after treatment.  This is to ensure that your teeth don’t start to move back again and helps to retain the positive results of your treatment.

Is Invisalign right for you?

Invisalign teeth straightening treatment is an ideal solution for adults and teens looking to straighten their smiles.  Continued technological advancements make it possible to treat many different teeth and bite issues, from simple to complex.

Of course, these aligners won’t be suitable for everyone, which is why we offer initial consultations.  This gives us the opportunity to talk through the options and using the iTero® Element™ Intraoral Scanner we can get a fast and precise 3D scan of your teeth, without any of the nasty putty you might remember!  This gives us an accurate impression of your mouth as a starting point for treatment, helping us to plan your custom treatment plan and demonstrate what the potential results might look like.
