How does Invisalign Fulham straighten your teeth?

Invisalign Fulham is a modern and effective method of straightening teeth that has helped to transform more than 14 million smiles across the world so far. The treatment begins with an intraoral scan using a small camera that takes thousands of pictures of your teeth and creates a 3D model of your mouth on a computer screen. This is much more beneficial than the traditional way of taking impressions of teeth, which can be messy and uncomfortable and often make people feel really sick. The digital image is uploaded onto Invisalign’s very own software, and your dentist can show you how your mouth will look after treatment with Invisalign Fulham. They can do this by analysing each tooth one at a time and changing the position of the tooth to see how it will fit best to create a neat formation. Some teeth may require no movement whilst others may require rotating.

If you and your dentist are happy with the predicted outcome, then the software will be used to calculate the movement of your teeth required to create a neatly aligned smile. Each tooth will need to be moved a certain number of steps to reach the desired position, and this is translated into a series of aligners that will push the teeth in that direction.

There are different types of alignment issues that can affect the appearance of your teeth and be addressed using Invisalign. Crooked, misaligned teeth, protruding, overlapping and overcrowded teeth can all be straightened over time with Invisalign. Some patients require dental extraction so that their remaining teeth can be straightened to create a neater formation. If you suffer from extensive dental misalignment, then you may be better suited for fixed braces, or you can undergo a combined treatment that begins with fixed braces and continues with Invisalign.

Invisalign attachments

Once you receive your aligners, you will have to visit your dentist, who will place small attachments onto the surface of your teeth so that the aligners can grip your teeth more securely. These attachments are almost invisible, and if they get stained as a result of food and drink, you can ask your dentist to polish them or maybe even replace them. These attachments also encourage your teeth to move better.

Invisalign aligners

The aligners themselves are numbered so that you know which one to wear. Each aligner needs to be in your mouth for approximately 20 to 22 hours a day. The longer you wear your aligners, the better results you will achieve at the end of the process, and this prevents you from having to wear more aligners at the end. It is important to maintain a good dental hygiene routine and visit the dentist regularly whilst undergoing orthodontic treatment, making sure that your teeth remain clean and healthy and that your gums are strong and free of disease.
