Invisalign Dentist in Preston

Invisalign PrestonWhat is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an alternative to conventional braces. Instead of metal braces, a series of clear, nearly invisible aligners are used to gradually straighten your teeth to create a smile, which you will be proud of. Oaklands Dental are a recognised provider of Invisalign in Preston.

Am I a suitable candidate for Invisalign?

Each person must be assessed on an individual basis. This assessment consists of a clinical appointment, whereby the dentist will evaluate your teeth and discuss your treatment goals and possible outcomes.

What is involved in the treatment?

Impressions and photographs are taken of your teeth. These are then sent to Invisalign, who create a Clincheck 3D computer model of your teeth showing the predicted treatment outcome. You will be invited back to the practice to discuss this with the dentist to ensure you are happy with the treatment plan. Providing this is the case, Invisalign will produce a series of clear, plastic, removable retainers for you to wear. During the treatment you will change these retainers every 2 weeks, and will visit the practice every 6-8 weeks to keep an eye on your progress.

Clear braces straighten your teethHow long does Invisalign take?

As an orthodontic treatment, Invisalign is a gradual process. The duration of treatment depends on how much movement is required. The dentist will be able to give you a better idea of how long treatment will take.

What happens at the end of the treatment?

Once treatment is complete, you will be provided with a set of retainers, which ensure your smile remains in perfect shape.
