Invisalign Ballina

Invisalign is a system of clear, removable braces. Invisalign easily fits into a busy, adult lifestyle and can be easily removed for eating, meetings, or special occasions. 

 

Treatment usually lasts for 9-18 months and consists of clear aligner trays shaped to move your teeth.

 

How does the Invisalign System work?

Initially, your Invisalign-trained dentist will take photos, X-rays, and digital

scans or a dental impression to help create your treatment plan.

  • Align Technology, the creator of Invisalign clear aligners, will then use

these records, along with the treatment prescribed by your dentist, to

create a customised 3D treatment plan just for you. With the treatment

plan, you’ll be able to see the final position your teeth are predicted

to reach after treatment. This treatment plan is used to develop your

customised aligners and also estimate the likely length of your treatment.

  • Your series of custom-made aligners will be given to you (typically 3-4

sets at a time) for you to wear every day and change them at home

approximately every 1-2 weeks.

  • You’ll be visiting your dentist approximately every 6-8

weeks to monitor the progress of your treatment and receive the next

series of aligners.

  • After you’ve finished your Invisalign aligner treatment, you may need to use retainers

(sitting behind the teeth) to help make sure the new position of your teeth is maintained.
