What is Invisalign?
The Invisalign system is a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth using a series of custom made, clear aligners.
The aligners work by placing controlled forces on your teeth in a timely manner. The tooth movements and forces are designed according to your unique needs and orthodontic prescription.
Invisalign is a recommended treatment to/for:
Straighten, rotate and upright teeth for improved appearance and cleaning
Correction of orthodontic relapse following previous brace treatment
Moderate to severe crowding which can affect gum health, and tooth decay
There are 3 levels of Invisalign care: I7, Invisalign Lite and Invisalign Full. The right one for you is determined by the amount of tooth movement required.
Benefits of Invisalign
Properly positioned teeth are easier to keep clean and look much better than teeth that are crowded, crooked or spaced too far apart. With improved oral hygiene the chances of having plaque, tooth decay or gum disease are significantly reduced.
Unlike traditional orthodontic braces, Invisalign aligners are removable, virtually invisible and can fit seamlessly into your lifestyle. Almost anyone who requires orthodontics can benefit from Invisalign and the average case takes around 12 months to complete.
A Perfect Product for a Perfect Smile
At Willaston Dental Care, we do not provide fixed, metal braces. We feel that if a patient is
lacking confidence in their smile, the last thing the will be looking for is a straightening
technique which draws attention to their teeth.
We want the changes to WOW but not give away the know how!
For this reason, for over 10 years, Elaine has worked solely with Invisalign, who are the global
market leaders in discreet orthodontics. Invisalign has successfully treated over 6 million
patients worldwide, so there is no doubt as to how well the technique works.
The Process Is Simple
We take digital scans of your teeth at your free
consultation appointment and produce an instant 3D visual of your perfectly straight teeth.
Once treatment commences, the aligners are changed every 7 days until your teeth are
straight, and with the latest Digital Monitoring, we can check how your treatment is
progressing, without you having to come into the practice, saving time for you to enjoy your
The length of treatment depends on the severity of your start point, but in over 10 years, we have never had a patient we couldn’t help.

What happens during treatment?
Once your case has been accepted, the aligners will be shipped to the practice within approximately 2 weeks, and we will then call you to schedule an appointment to fit the first set.
Sometimes Dr Haworth will need to place composite attachments on your teeth, or create small spaces between certain teeth, as pre-designated in the prescription. These allow the aligners to do their job much better and enhance the final result. The composite attachments will be removed at the end of treatment. Neither the composite attachments, nor space creation will compromise the integrity or health of your teeth.
Each set of aligners should be worn for 2 weeks, all day, every day, except when eating, drinking or cleaning your teeth. Oral hygiene is of utmost importance for the long term health of you and your mouth, and our hygiene team will show you the best way to maintain a healthy mouth. We advise that you also have a hygiene visit a minimum every six months at our practice.
You will need to schedule an appointment approximately every 8 weeks to collect the next stage of aligners, and for Dr Haworth to check the fit and monitor your progress.
nce active treatment has completed, Dr Haworth will assess the changes and tooth movement against the initial prescription. Sometimes final refinements are required to achieve a more defined result. If no further movement is required, new impressions will be taken for retainer fabrication.
It is important to remember Retention is for Life! To maintain your healthy – Straight – smile, your retainers must be worn as advised by Dr Haworth, usually full time for the first month then every night for at least 9-12 months. Long term wear of the retainer as many nights as possible will minimise the chances of relapse. At any time after treatment new retainers can be made (at additional cost) if required.
4 steps to your new smile.
We will take you through the Case Assessment, which is a simple set of photos to determine whether you are suitable for Invisalign treatment.
If treatment is right for you, we’ll take photos, X-rays and digital scans, or a dental impression, of your teeth. Then we’ll create you a digital treatment plan, using our state of the art technology, showing you what your results could look like via a 3D video.
We’ll give you a series of aligners to wear every day and change at home – on average every 1-2 weeks (as directed by your Dentist). You can comfortably wear your aligners for 22 hours a day (the recommended daily wear). And because they’re removable, it’s easy to maintain your normal oral hygiene routine and enjoy your usual diet.
We’ll invite you back to the practice around every 4-6 weeks to monitor progress and hand over your new aligners. At the end of your treatment, you will need to wear your retainers to maintain your new smile.
