The story behind the invention of Invisalign is a very interesting one. It was the year of 1997. Zia Chishti and Kelsey Wirth, two Stanford University business majors, brainstormed and came up with a revolutionary dental appliance. The idea of the dental appliance came up when the inventors were actually undergoing dental treatment for teeth alignment, wearing the removable braces. This appliance had the same functions of dental braces, minus the discomfort, pain and unpleasant looks. Moreover, their dental appliance was removable and barely visible. Slowly the new invention’s popularity grew and a pool of investors gave birth to the start-up ‘Invisalign’.

Slowly the popularity of the product grew and Invisalign became available to orthodontists at large by 2000. Invisalign treatment in SE19 primarily drew customer base from adults who wished for teeth alignment correction but were shying away from the ordeal or inconvenience of metal braces. Today, in 2020, Invisalign is an FDA-approved option for all those people who desire a picture-perfect smile and want to achieve it the hassle-free way without the metal hardware and public embarrassment.

Invisalign VS traditional braces

Both of them have just 1 thing in common -Their end goal of straightening and aligning the teeth, plus closing any gaps in between teeth.Traditional braces work by affixing a series of wires and brackets on an individual tooth. Such wires can be removed only by a dentist. Invisalign is a clear plastic feel aligner. They are custom made as per each individual's current teeth status. They can be easily removed and worn back by the wearer. They can do the same job of metal braces without the discomfort given by metal wires. With Invisalign things like cuts from wires on your inner cheeks, tight rubber bands to bind brackets, metal brackets, broken brackets, the difficulty of biting food, the difficulty of cleaning, etc. are all things of the past!

What problems can Invisalign address?
Invisalign is a wonderful way to treat typical bite problems, gapped/crowded/ crooked teeth, and under- and over-bites.

Is Invisalign a one-time device?

No. when you wear Invisalign to correct your teeth positioning, you would have to get a new aligner made every 2-3 weeks, depending on the success achieved by the previous aligner. Each aligner can shift your teeth by a little percentage. So you would need to keep wearing newer ones until your teeth are straight and aligned correctly. The equivalent process in the traditional braces system is the time you visit your dentist to tighten the braces.

Who can get Invisalign?
There is no age criterion for becoming an Invisalign candidate. Anyone, irrespective of their age with crowded or gapped or improperly aligned teeth can get Invisalign.

The time duration of wearing aligners
The main benefit of Invisalign treatment in South East London is that you can remove them when you want. The primary times when people remove their aligners are during eating, brushing/flossing/cleaning or when taking pictures, or in social gatherings. However, it is recommended you wear your aligners at all other times, and that even includes while you sleep each night.

Cleaning the aligners
It is recommended you clean your aligners twice a day, morning and night, just like you clean your teeth. The process of cleaning aligners is simple. You just need to brush them gently with a baby-soft toothbrush. It is also recommended you soak them in denture cleaner or Invisalign crystals once in a while.

So, Is Invisalign painless?
Well, we can't actually say it’s a completely painless process. Since their function is to re-align your teeth, they do exert a little pressure on your teeth, constantly. But the only pain they give you is mild soreness, especially in the first few hours of wearing a new aligner. With Invisalign, you do not face any pain and discomfort like braces can cause due to sharp wires, poking brackets and bruised inner cheeks.

Are Invisalign standard aligners?
No. Each aligner is custom made at every stage of treatment. Each time you get aligner; your dentist makes a fresh mold of your teeth and submits it to Invisalign. At the lab, a sophisticated computer technology constructs a 3D image of your teeth and then creates the exact aligner that can be effective to re-align the teeth to a little extent, each time.
