Invisalign

Traditional braces may not suit everyone and for this reason invisalign has proven very popular at The Meridian Dental Practice, Greenwich. This unique, highly advanced form of brace treatment involves the use of soft comfortable plastic aligners which overlie the surfaces of the teeth.

Invisalign is an ideal solution for patients who require slight and subtle adjustments to a few teeth to improve their smile quickly and discreetly. Furthermore, Invisalign® braces are clear which make them virtually imperceptible doing away with traditional wire systems, enabling your teeth to be straightened without anyone knowing. This is in stark contrast to traditional metal brackets and wires which are attached to your teeth and clearly visible.

The Invisalign® dental braces system functions much like traditional braces in that it shifts teeth into their correct position.

In order to determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign, impressions are made of your mouth and scanned into the computer. Based on the doctor’s instructions the technicians will align the teeth on the computer. Both the doctor and the patient can view the potential end result and determine if Invisalign is the correct means to straightening the teeth. This will also enable us to determine the length of treatment making the treatment more predictable.

The Invisalign aligners are changed every two weeks and are worn throughout the day, but can be removed by the wearer to eat or drink. Patients love this therapy because the Invisalign® dental braces can be used to suit your lifestyle.

Whether it’s just one or more misaligned teeth, feel free to come in and discuss what options are available to you.
