Misaligned teeth? Invisalign in Cornwall can help!

Invisalign in Cornwall is part of a dental revolution that has seen more than eight million patients, worldwide, benefit from this form of treatment. Unfortunately we are not all born with straight teeth and some of us have to have a correctional procedure to address any dental misalignment. Invisalign in Cornwall is here to help you with a treatment that is comfortable and quick.


Computer aided procedures

The latest technology is being used in dentistry to help ensure accurate and safe procedures in many areas of the profession, including orthodontics. Using the latest computer hardware and software our practice, Archway Dental Surgery, is able to eliminate many of the old techniques and procedures associated with dental misalignment correction. Invisalign in Cornwall uses the iTero digital scanner which provides accurate and detailed 3D digital images of your oral cavity, eliminating the use of dental putty and other outmoded procedures. The communication between our practice and the laboratory is also immediate and helps to speed up the process.

Get a glimpse into the future

Using the amazing Invisalign digital equipment we can produce an image of how your teeth will look after treatment, even before treatment has begun! You can immediately get an idea of how the dental improvements will look and discuss with us if you have any questions.

Can you help correct my condition?

No two people are the same and therefore treatments must be tailor-made to suit a particular patient. Using Invisalign we are able to correct many dental misalignments that were previously only treated with conventional braces such as crowded teeth, crossbite, overbite, underbite and deep bite.

How are they different to braces

Braces come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but all generally use blocks, wires and bands in some shape or form to move your teeth. Invisalign works slightly differently and looks more like a gum shield which fits over your teeth, eliminating the use of blocks, wires and bands. These gum shields are referred to as trays and a treatment plan consists of a series of these trays. Invisalign is also made from a multilayer polyurethane and copolymer thermoplastic which is clear and therefore inconspicuous.

What is involved in the treatment?

The first part of the treatment is to have a thorough examination to assess your condition and decide which treatment plan is best. Thousands of digital images are produced of your oral cavity and  we will communicate digitally with the laboratory to produce your personal set of Invisalign trays. We will fit the first tray and you will be required to wear each tray for at least twenty-two hours per day. You may remove the tray to eat and drink, and to brush and floss your teeth. Every few weeks it will be necessary to have a new tray fitted until the final tray of the treatment is used.

The final reveal

Once treatment has been completed it will be necessary to wear a final retainer to hold your teeth in their new position while they settle. Proper and regular dental maintenance must always be maintained, but now you will be able to reveal your broad, confident smile of lovely straight teeth to the world and your family.
