What to Expect From Invisalign Treatment?


If you are looking to straighten out your teeth and get that smile that you deserve then the best course of action which you can take is to get Invisalign treatment. In terms of looking for dentist that offer Invisalign Bristol had a huge number of people who offered it, and I have since learned that this is the same all over the country. The usual options for people who want a new smile is to either have metal braces or veneers, but Invisalign is the one which makes the most sense. If you plan to get this treatment done, here is what you can expect. 


What is Invisalign?


Very quickly I want to talk about what exactly is this treatment, basically it is a clear and invisible gum shield which is placed over your teeth, which re-aligns the teeth which need to be moved. The process takes less than a year and costs around £3,000. 


Regular Appointments 


Because teeth move so quickly your dentist needs to be able to keep up, and that mens plenty of changes to the mouth piece. The dentist needs to ensure that pressure is constantly being put on the right teeth in order to get the result which they need, and that is why you can expect a number of appointments during the process. This isn’t a bad thing however because it means that you’ll get lots of face time with your dentist, giving you the chance to ask about any concerns which you may have. 


Wear Time


You can expect to have this piece in your mouth for 22 hours per day, this is what most dentists will recommend. Whilst people may not be able to see the piece, you can certainly feel it and after a while it will just become the norm. In the first couple of weeks it may feel slightly uncomfortable as you get used to it, but soon enough you will hardly even notice that it is there. 


Weight Loss


A surprising benefit which I encountered was a little bit of weight loss. This is of course not guaranteed for everyone who undergoes this treatment but because of the short two hour window which you are able to eat in, the result is that you may well try a few pounds. 




You’ll have to clean your teeth a lot more than normal as it is easy for bacteria and plaque to get in under the mouth piece. Expect to brush those teeth at least 6 times per day, maybe more. 




The success rate of this treatment is incredibly high and that is why above all you can expect real results for your teeth and your smile. No matter if the process takes 9 months or a year, at the end of it you will have a smile to be proud of and you will get your confidence back as a result of Invisalign. 


Go get that smile which you have always wanted!
