The team at Tindall Orthodontics are pleased to be able to provide a discreet teeth straightening solution to you. We are a certified Invisalign® practice and benefit from the full scope of support and training that Invisalign® offers.
Invisalign® is an innovative orthodontic treatment that moves your teeth over time, by using a series of clear, close-fitting plastic aligner trays. These sequential aligners are designed to move your teeth a small amount each time, and are made of medical grade, BPA-free plastic.
Using computer-aided design and manufacturing, each set of aligners are customised and tailored to each individual. One of the biggest advantages of using Invisalign® is that the aligners barely noticeable, keeping your orthodontic treatment discreet. Invisalign® aligners are relatively comfortable, removable for cleaning and are worn in two to four week blocks.
Aligners need to be worn for the entire day, save for eating and brushing teeth, for them to be most effective. It’s best to wear them as your orthodontist instructs, so to avoid any delay and duration of treatment. Treatment duration depends on the severity of the problem and can take anywhere from nine to 24 months.
Invisalign® has been on the market for more than 20 years. Throughout this time, the product has improved and been refined, making it more effective at straightening teeth. A full range of orthodontic issues can now be treated with Invisalign® aligners and is popularly used as an alternative to fixed braces.
In some severe orthodontic cases, partial braces in combination with Invisalign® aligners may be needed. Your orthodontists will be able to consult with you, providing the most suitable treatment plan for your needs.
Invisalign® treatment is provided by both general dentists and specialist orthodontists. The difference is that when you’re treated by an orthodontist, you’re in the hands of a specialist with additional years’ training, qualifications and skills.
The team at Tindall Orthodontics are highly qualified in planning your treatment, recognising the strengths and limitations of each appliance (braces, plates or Invisalign® aligners) and will advise you of your best options. After all, moving teeth is what orthodontists do.
