Invisalign Teen is a clear removable device that is virtually invisible. Because Invisalign is removable you can continue regular daily activities, while still being able to brush and floss with ease. Thanks to its flexibility and the absence of metal wires, Invisalign Teen is also gentle on your teeth and mouth. At Pearl dental clinic, we have carried out over 1,500 successful Invisalign treatments over the past 10 years.
How does Invisalign Teen work and what is so good about it?
Pearl Dental Clinic is one of few clinics in UK that Provide Invisalign Teen using the Invisalign iTero digital scanning system rather than using traditional impressions and moulds.
The Invisalign iTero handheld wand takes a digital, 3D image of your teeth, preventing the need for traditional impressions which can cause some patients to gag. You can look at the iTero 3D image of your teeth on the screen in real-time. The iTero scan also allows you to see a FREE preview of your Invisalign treatment before the case is submitted to Invisalign.
Rather than posting impressions to the lab to be scanned which could take weeks, the digital image is electronically sent to the Invisalign lab immediately and is available in the Invisalign Clincheck system the next day.
The accuracy and detail of the Invisalign iTero digital scans vs traditional teeth impressions is kind of like watching high definition TV over standard definition TV.
These digital scans don’t need to be rescanned so by removing the “clay modelling step” we have greatly improved the accuracy and speed of your Invisalign treatment.
After your virtual course of treatment (Clincheck) has been finalised you will be able to see the movement of your teeth in a 3D animation. A series of aligners will then be custom manufactured for you. The aligners are made from a lightweight plastic material and will be changed every two weeks.
Each aligner is slightly different from the previous one and moves your teeth gently into the desired position. The length of treatment may vary dependant on the severity of your case. On average Invisalign Teen cases take approximately 9-18 months.
