At Pearl dental clinic, we treat a variety of orthodontic concerns using Invisalign including teeth which are overcrowded or have gaps between them or where there are bite problems present. Invisalign is nearly invisible, it would be difficult for anyone to detect that you are wearing it and so you can smile with confidence during and after your treatment. You can remove the aligners, so you can eat and drink what you like.We have successfully carried out well over 1,500 successful treatments since 2008 and have achieved Platinum Elite status so that you can rest assured that your treatment is carried out by a very experienced team. You can view our Invisalign Before & After Photos.
We at Pearl Dental Clinic use the iTero digital scanning system rather than taking traditional impressions and moulds. The iTero handheld wand takes digital 3D images of your teeth, preventing the need for traditional impressions which can cause some patients to gag.
The iTero scan also allows you to see a FREE previewof your treatment before the case is submitted. Rather than posting impressions to the lab to be scanned which could take weeks, the digital image is electronically sent to the laboratory immediately and is available in the Clincheck system the next day. The accuracy and detail of the iTero digital scans is incredible.
Once the ClinCheck plan is approved by you, Align Technology will then make a series of custom made aligners. Each aligner is slightly different, moving your teeth gradually into the desired position. You wear each aligner for one-two weeks and then move on to the next aligner.
We will see you for a progress review every four to six weeks. Each aligner should be worn for 22 hours a day and only removed to clean teeth or for patients to eat meals. However, you can drink water whilst wearing your aligners. An added benefit of the treatment is that many patients notice weight loss due to restricting meals to a maximum of 2 hours a day.
