Invisalign Leicester is a highly popular method of correcting the misalignment of teeth and an excellent alternative to traditional metal braces for those who are looking for a more discreet and convenient form of treatment with a shorter treatment duration. If your teeth are crooked, have gaps in between them or are overcrowded, then speak to us at Smile Care Dental Clinic to find out how we can help you solve this problem.

What is ClinCheck and how does it help?

ClinCheck is a software that we use at Smile Care Dental Clinic and an important part of the Invisalign Leicester process. Our dentist will carry out a thorough examination of your teeth to make sure that you have optimal oral health, including clean teeth and strong and healthy gums. They will carry out any further cleaning where necessary to remove excess plaque or tartar that may be present on the surface of your teeth.

Next, our dentist will scan your teeth and the ClinCheck software will use this to plan how any misalignment should be corrected. This will make sure that the treatment will result in teeth that are not just straight but optimally aligned so that you can have a beautiful smile that fits your mouth well. You can discuss the proposed treatment plan created by the software with our dentist and have a look at a visual prediction of how successful treatment with Invisalign Leicester can improve the appearance of your smile.

Once agreed upon, the scan results will be sent off to technicians who will create individually tailored plastic aligners for the treatment. These are designed as a series of aligners that gradually move your teeth into the desired positions. Each aligner should be worn for one or two weeks at a time and can move your teeth by up to 0.25 mm if worn for the recommended 22 hours a day. Following this, you must move on to the next aligner in the series, according to your treatment plan.

You have to visit our dentist here at Smile Care Dental Clinic every 6 weeks as this allows us to monitor your progress and guarantee that the treatment is coming along successfully. Such regular visits will also help us ensure that your teeth remain clean and healthy throughout the process.

Advantages of clear aligners

A significant advantage of clear aligners is that they can be taken out and put back into your mouth whenever necessary. We advise that you remove your aligners before mealtimes so that it does not affect any of your dietary choices or eating habits. This also helps to keep the aligners clean, although they are very easy to maintain. You must brush the aligners using an ordinary toothbrush, rinse them in warm water and only then should you continue wearing them again. Not only does treatment with clear aligners help improve the appearance of your smile but having optimally aligned and symmetrical teeth will promote better oral hygiene and health overall.
