Invisalign in Enniskillen

There is a solution to having straighter teeth without having to wear metal braces. Known as invisible orthodontics, this type of treatment offers you the choice of wearing a clear and sometimes removable appliance while straightening and aligning your teeth.

Invisalign

This is often a favourable option for adults who have professional careers and don't feel comfortable wearing unsightly 'train track' braces for months on end. The technology behind invisible orthodontics is highly advanced and often gives patients a much shorter treatment time, depending on their individual cases.

Benefits of this type of treatment include having teeth straightened in a generally shortened period of time, straighter teeth and alignment of your top and bottom jaws. You can also enjoy the flexibility of your braces being hidden from an untrained eye, making you feel less self-conscious when socialising or speaking in public. With removable devices you can also take them out to eat or for special occasions, so they fit around your lifestyle.

It is important to remember that straighter teeth are healthier teeth. When your bite is properly aligned and your teeth are straightened, there are less gaps and areas for food to get trapped and plaque to build up on the teeth, causing decay. In that sense, invisible orthodontics is a long-term investment in your oral health.

What is Invisalign?

Developed by Align Technology together with leading orthodontists in 1997, Invisalign straightens your teeth using a series of custom-made clear aligners. Comfortable, clear and removable – Invisalign transforms your smile without disrupting your life. Something that over 8 million people worldwide have already discovered

Invisalign Aligners...​
  • Are comfortable and nearly invisible.
  • Gently and continuously move your teeth in small increments.
  • Are worn for approximately two weeks. Then you switch to a new set of aligners.
  • Are removable so you can eat whatever you want and maintain good oral hygiene.
Treatable issues...

By using advanced technology, Invisalign can treat a broad range of dental and orthodontic issues that were previously treated with traditional braces – from minor tooth movements to more complex cases. These issues include:

  • Overly crowded teeth.
  • Widely spaced teeth.
  • Cross bite.
  • Deep bite.
  • Under bite.

How does the treatment work?

It takes approximately between 9 and 18 months to create a new smile using Invisalign. Getting there takes just four simple steps:

  1. You meet with an Invisalign Provider for a consultation about your treatment., based on your treatment plan and your dental records, a virtual 3D treatment plan is generated that shows you the expected movement of your teeth from their current position to the desired final position.
  2. Once you and your Invisalign Provider have approved the treatment plan, the aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth. The number of aligners varies for each person.
  3. You wear your aligners about 20 to 22 hours every day, except to eat, brush, and floss, or for a specific occasion.
  4. Every two weeks, you switch to a new set of aligners. The aligners will gradually move your teeth towards their final prescribed position.
The Benefits.

Custom-made to fit your teeth and your lifestyle, Invisalign offers many benefits beyond your brand-new smile:
