invisalign in Langley, Slough


If you’re in need of orthodontic treatment but are concerned about the aesthetics of wearing braces, then our Langley Road Dental Practice can help. We offer the latest in discreet adult orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign. It is the ground-breaking brace that’s responsible for straightening over 5 million smiles. When it launched in 2000, it turned orthodontics on its head and completely transformed the way we move teeth. 

Invisalign consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable braces or aligners that you change every two weeks for a new set. Each aligner is individually made to fit you perfectly ensuring maximum comfort. Little by little, as you replace each aligner, your teeth move gently until they have straightened to the final position you agree is right for you.

What to expect during your Invisalign treatment

Firstly, we understand your aims from straightening the teeth and discuss all the suitable options with you. We then carry out a thorough examination. Your dentist at Langley Road Dental Practice will talk you through the Invisalign invisible braces tooth straightening system and discuss what’s right for you. 

Your dentist will conduct a special investigation using x-rays and take some impressions and photographs of your teeth. You will then be seen for a review appointment where your treatment plan is discussed and then once you are happy with it, it will be submitted to the USA to create your aligners. 

The aligners are then manufactured for you. You will wear each set of aligners for 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, and brush. Your dentist at our Invisalign Langley Road Dental Practice will continue to see you for regular reviews to make ensure that you are heading towards a more even smile 

At the end of the treatment you can enjoy a straighter smile for a long time. With Invisalign at Langley Road Dental Practice, the treatment includes your retainers. Because teeth can move even after orthodontic treatment, retainers will make sure your teeth stay in their new position. 

Invisalign FAQs

While Invisalign aligners aren’t invisible they’re very inconspicuous. In most cases you’ll be able to have conversations with friends and family without them even realising that you’re wearing your aligners. We have samples of different aligners in our Langley Road Dental Practice, your dentist will show you the different types during your consultation. 

There is no evidence to suggest that they will, however as with any traditional orthodontic treatment, it may take a little while to get used to wearing them. You may have a slight lisp at first, but you’ll quickly get used to your aligners and should be talking clearly and confidently within a few days. 

Invisalign also has the benefit of having no metal wires or brackets, which can sometimes cause discomfort at the beginning of treatment. At the beginning of Invisalign treatment some people may experience mild discomfort for one or two days when they insert a new aligner. Our patients at Langley Road dental Practicey describe it as a feeling of pressure on the teeth, this is a normal sign that the aligners are doing their job. 

Your Invisalign Doctor will create a unique, digital treatment plan that maps out the exact movements of your teeth. Your Invisalign clear aligners are then designed to apply the right amount of force to the right place at the right time based on your plan. Your Invisalign Doctor will be with you every step of the way to monitor your progress and ensure your aligners fit correctly 

Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible — people may not even notice you’re wearing them. You can remove them to eat and drink, to brush and floss, or for special occasions. There are no metal brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth or break. 

Unlike other brands, Invisalign clear aligners are made from patented SmartTrack material, which is more comfortable and provides a better fit.1 Invisalign aligners are also trimmed based on your gum line for comfort and appearance. As the most advanced clear aligner system in the world, we have successfully improved over 8 million smiles, including 1.4 million teen smiles 

Invisalign only work while you are wearing them. We recommend they are worn full time day and night (min 22–24 hours). 
Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks, (before moving onto the next in the series), moving your teeth millimeter by millimeter, week by week, until you reach your desired result. 

Treatment length will vary depending on your case, but the average Clear Aligner treatment is nine to eighteen months. 
During treatment you should visit us periodically, until it is determined that your treatment is complete. 
Once active treatment is complete, there may be some fine tuning to create that perfect smile. 

To achieve optimum results, Invisalign aligners need to be worn for around 20 to 22 hours a day, but you can take them out for eating, drinking, brushing and contact sports. During your initial consultation your dentist will give you more guidance on this. 

Our dentist in Langley Road Dental Practice can show you how to take care of your Invisalign aligner. We usually recommend immersing them in warm water along with special cleaning tablets or crystals to keep them looking clear.
