The clear alternative to traditional braces
With Invisalign®, you can smile your way to straighter teeth. At Melton Orthodontics, we are proud to offer Invisalign® clear aligners to our patients of all ages.
In fact, we are a Platinum Invisalign® provider, meaning we have helped hundreds of patients in Leicestershire with Invisalign® so we are confident to say we really are experts in this treatment.
How does Invisalign® work?
Invisalign® uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gently guide your teeth into their planned position. These aligners are custom-made for you, using 3D scans of your mouth to achieve accurate results with a comfortable fit.
At the start of your treatment, your specialist will use 3D scan technology to design your bespoke treatment plan, based on your smile goals. This overall plan is then split into phases with each phase consisting of an aligner series.
Over time, you will upgrade your aligner for the next in the series, gently guiding your teeth into their optimal position, all from the comfort of your own home.
3D computer imaging technology
Using the iTero Scanner 3D computer imaging technology, our Specialist Orthodontists can evaluate the current position of your teeth and jaw and predict how Invisalign® treatment could help. Once you have been approved for treatment, they will use the same technology to design your bespoke Invisalign® treatment plan.
What are the benefits of Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is always a popular choice with our patients and here’s why:
- Virtually invisible - the aligners are clear, meaning you can continue as usual, without feeling self-conscious.
- Effective - Invisalign® aligners achieve the very best results in a manageable timeframe. Plus, if you use our Dental Monitoring app, you can send updates to your orthodontist from home, reducing overall treatment times.
- Comfortable - due to the accurate fit via 3D scanning and the thin plastic used, Invisalign® offers a comfortable fit. This also makes them a great option for children and teens.
- Hygienic - your aligners are fully removable meaning you can eat, brush and floss as normal.
