Invisalign

More than 5 million people around the world have beautifully straight teeth thanks to Invisalign. Haven’t heard of it? Read on, because at The Forum Orthodontics, we are specialist providers of this revolutionary orthodontic treatment which can straighten your teeth without braces. 

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a clinically-proven, orthodontic method of realigning your teeth without using the metal brackets, archwires and elastic bands found with traditional braces. Instead, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth. These aligners, which you can take out when eating, brushing and flossing, are custom-made to your mouth and replaced every two weeks as your teeth start to straighten. 

To get the very best results from Invisalign treatment, patients are recommended to wear the aligners for around 22 hours a day.

Keith Jackson left his native Northern Ireland in 1980 to commence his study of Dentistry at Newcastle University, completing his degree in 1985, taking with him as well very happy memories of his time in the North East.

He decided to continue his dental education, developing more advanced skills - initially at The Charles Clifford Dental Hospital, followed by Doncaster Royal Infirmary and finally The Birmingham Dental Hospital. After this four-year period of post-graduate study, he became a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. Keith began his practice career as an associate at The Riversdale Dental Practice in Gainsborough and had the opportunity two years later to buy the practice from the existing owner – who was heading back to the Emerald isle.

How does Invisalign work?

At The Forum Orthodontics, we start by taking impressions of your teeth, using a state-of-the-art digital scanner. This enables us to get an accurate picture of the placement of your teeth and jaws so we can clearly identify the extent of orthodontic treatment you require. 

This scanner also has 3D technology capabilities so we can plot the movement of your teeth over the duration of your treatment. In other words, we can see exactly what your new smile will look like even before you’ve started treatment. 

From these impressions, we have clear plastic aligners custom-made to fit over your teeth. They look a bit like a thin sports mouthguard but are much more comfortable to wear. Every two weeks you’ll need to change your aligners. The new set of aligners will be shaped slightly differently to encourage your teeth to move. 

Invisalign vs traditional metal braces

Many of our patients ask us – does Invisalign work as well as traditional braces? The answer is yes! At The Forum Orthodontics, we can use Invisalign aligners in most, if not all, of the same cases as we would traditional metal braces. It is usually over to you to decide. Invisalign does cost more than traditional braces, but treatment tends to be faster.

Types of Invisalign

Although Invisalign aligners all look the same, there are different programmes of Invisalign treatment depending on the treatment requirements you have.

  • Invisalign Comprehensive: for those of our patients who have more complex and longer treatment requirements, we are likely to recommend Invisalign Comprehensive. This programme of Invisalign treatment usually takes between 12 to 18 months, sometimes a little longer depending on the severity of your problem.
  • Invisalign Lite: not all our patients have major orthodontic treatment needs. Sometimes, all that may be required is a realignment of the front six teeth. For this type of treatment we would most likely use Invisalign Lite, which can achieve results in as little as six months.
  • Invisalign Express: for patients who want to see results faster and who don’t need too much orthodontic treatment done to their front six teeth, Invisalign Express can achieve results in up to three months.
  • Invisalign First: Invisalign hasn’t forgotten about our younger patients. Some children can benefit from pre-emptive treatment, which is where Invisalign First comes in. Invisalign First aligners can help with preliminary orthodontic treatment to try and reduce the extent of treatment required later.

3 benefits of Invisalign

Eat, brush and floss as normal: one of the greatest benefits of Invisalign is that you can remove your aligners to brush and floss your teeth after eating, so there’s no excuse not to keep your teeth in optimal condition.

No need to change your lifestyle: less time at the orthodontic clinic, no restrictions on what to eat, playing sports and musical instruments - all of this is possible with Invisalign aligners.

No one will know you’re having treatment: Invisalign is, without a doubt, one of the most discreet treatment options around. So many of our patients have reported that even their closest family and friends didn’t notice they were wearing an orthodontic appliance!
