Invisalign Leeds: Invisalign is the most commonly used and trusted system for using clear aligners to straighten teeth. To date, over 6 million patients have straightened their teeth with Invisalign worldwide, and Montreal Dental Care is proud to be providing this revolutionary treatment for our patients in Leeds.
The longevity of Invisalign is a testament of its popularity in straightening teeth. Teeth are straightened, and smiles transformed using clear aligners that are hardly noticeable.
Invisalign uses the latest in dental technology to provide braces that are custom made to your teeth which have the ability to resolve a host of dental problems. These include misaligned teeth, gapped or crowded teeth.
Invisalign Leeds : Benefits
Traditional metal wires need to be tightened every 4-6 weeks. With Invisalign, you can get given multiple aligners at the same time, with each lasting two weeks. Changing the aligners does not require the assistance of your dentist, meaning fewer visits to the dentist over the course of the treatment.

Invisalign Leeds : Treatment Process
Your treatment will begin with a dental examination and an orthodontic consultation with Dr Priyanka to ensure that you are the right candidate for Invisalign treatment.
A dental and medical history will be taken.
Based on your needs, the dentist will then formulate a treatment plan to achieve your desired result if suitable.
The first step in straightening your teeth with Invisalign is to take photographs. These are sent to an Invisalign assessor who will determine if you’re suitable for Invisalign treatment.
The second appointment will involve taking dental impressions of your teeth. From these impressions, Invisalign software is able to accurately show the type of malocclusion your teeth have and the potential end result after Invisalign treatment is completed.
At this point, if you’re happy with treatment and the expected results, then treatment can continue and the clear aligners are made with precision cutting edge technology.
Over the course of the treatment, a series of customised aligners are made. These aligners are a snug fit for your teeth, resulting in steady movement that straighten your teeth gradually until the perfect smile is achieved.
The aligners are then changed typically every 10-14 days. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move little by little, week by week until the we reach the desired position for your teeth.
Your dentist will review your progress every 4-6 weeks to ensure everything is on track and to make any corrections if necessary.

Invisalign : FAQ
The Invisalign aligners are made from transparent and clear plastic trays. These customised trays are printed with precision 3D printers, the cutting edge of dental technology.
You may find that the aligners are tighter when you wear them again. If they fit but are just a bit tight, then you should be ok to continue. If you do not wear them as prescribed and then they do not fit back onto your teeth, you will need to visit your dentist and have new aligners made. Please note that there would be an additional charge to make these aligners.
In some complex cases, traditional dental braces are the best solution for correcting the dental problems. Your dentist will determine your suitability for Invisalign treatment. If traditional braces are deemed the better solution, then you may be referred to an orthodontic clinic.
We advise to remove the aligners when eating and drinking. Then brush and floss your teeth before wearing the aligners again.
