How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign is a great choice for patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option for straightening their smile. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten teeth. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of your teeth. As you switch sets of clear aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will gradually and gently move to their desired position. You’ll need to visit our dental practice in Slough on a regular basis during treatment so we can make sure your treatment and smile is progressing, as planned.
Am I suitable for Invisalign?
Invisalign is an effective way to treat the most common orthodontic issues, such as:
Crowded teeth are more difficult to properly brush and floss, leaving you more vulnerable to developing tooth decay and gum disease. Invisalign gently shifts crowded teeth to make a comfortable space for your whole smile.
Gaps between teeth
Most patients we see would prefer they had no gaps between their teeth, especially the front ones most visible when we eat, speak, laugh or smile. It’s not just cosmetic reasons why Invisalign works so well. Too much space between teeth allows tiny food particles to get trapped and eventually contribute to tooth decay. Invisalign can close dental gaps by moving teeth into proper alignment.
A misaligned bite can put pressure on the jaw joint and lead to teeth grinding and jaw clenching. Such intense wear and tear on teeth can lead to the erosion of enamel over time. Invisalign can correct overbites, underbites and crossbites.
Is Invisalign better than other braces?
Invisalign treatment is often a good choice for adult patients and others who are interested in a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. In addition to being discreet, Invisalign’s clear aligners are:
- Comfortable – the smooth, thin plastic of the custom-made trays won’t irritate your mouth.
- Removable – you can easily remove your aligners to eat, brush and floss.
- Fast – most patients complete their Invisalign treatment plan in just 12 to 18 months, considerably faster than the 24 to 36 months usually needed for traditional metal braces.
Cost of Invisalign
Every smile is unique, so the cost of Invisalign treatment varies from patient to patient. The price you will pay will depend on your specific smile needs and a range of factors, including the severity of your case.

More Invisalign FAQs
Do I have to wear my Invisalign aligners all day?
Being able to remove Invisalign when you floss, brush, eat or drink is one of the many wonderful benefits of the treatment but it does mean patients need to be responsible for wearing the aligners at all other times. Throughout your treatment, it will be up to you to remember to wear your aligners for 20-22 hours every day.
Is Invisalign painful?
Invisalign aligners are made out of a single piece of smooth plastic which means they glide past your soft tissues comfortably. However, it’s completely natural to experience some soreness any time teeth are shifted into a new position. Any discomfort you experience should be easily manageable with over-the-counter pain relievers and ease within a few days.
Will Invisalign effect my speech?
Some patients who begin Invisalign treatment notice a slight lisp. This usually goes away after a few days once your tongue adjusts to the aligners. Generally, you can expect to return to your normal speaking pattern within a week or two.
Do I have to change my diet with Invisalign?
Unlike traditional metal braces that required you to adhere to certain dietary restrictions, Invisalign aligners allow you to continue enjoying all your favourite foods. Simply take them out, enjoy your meal, and give your teeth a quick brush before putting your aligners back into place. You’ll also be able to remove them for sports and playing instruments like the trumpet. Remember to always store your aligners in their case when you take them out.
I’ve had traditional braces before, can I still get Invisalign?
While traditional braces are a reliable method of straightening teeth, their results may not last a lifetime if the patient neglects wearing their retainer. If you’ve had other orthodontic work in the past but find your teeth are crooked again, Invisalign may be an excellent choice. While these clear aligners are typically a great option for anyone who wants a straighter smile, we’ll carefully inspect your teeth and bite alignment during your consultation to ensure they’re the most effective treatment for you.
