Invisalign FAQ’s

Treatment time varies depending on the complexity of each individual case and can take anything from 4 to 24 weeks. After a thorough consultation where we will confirm suitability and explain in detail the steps involved, you will be given a more accurate idea of how long your individual treatment will take. At your consultation appointment, you will have the opportunity to discuss any questions or concerns you may have,

You must remove the aligners to eat, brush and floss your teeth, but aside from these times you must wear the aligners for up to 22 hours a day to speed up the alignment process. If compliance might be an issue then we would recommend a fixed brace instead, as the aligners will not work as well if they are not worn full time and therefore your treatment time will increase considerably. Every two weeks, you will swap your aligners with a new set which will gradually push your teeth into the desired positions.

Any time the teeth are pushed or moved into a different position, there is a chance of experiencing some discomfort. This is actually a good sign as it’s an indication that the treatment is working! Most patients only report discomfort for the first few days after wearing a new set of aligners and some report no discomfort at all. When present, this can be described as more of a pressure-type pain than a sharp or intense pain, and typically resolves after the first few days.

As with all types of orthodontic treatment, the cost will depend on the complexity of your individual case. For top and bottom teeth, this can vary from £2,500 to £3000. Prices for a single arch start at £1800.
