Invisalign can be used to close gaps between teeth. Invisalign clear aligners for correcting gap teeth can provide aesthetic benefits such as no metal brackets and wire, similar treatment cost to braces at some practices, freedom to remove your aligners and enjoy all the foods you love, effective filling of the gap with less pain, and fewer doctor visits compared to braces. The treatment process may vary depending on the cause, size and location of your gap or gaps.

How long does Invisalign take to close gaps between the teeth?

The time it takes for Invisalign to close gaps between teeth varies depending on the severity of the gap. Invisalign offers a 0.2 mm movement per aligner, which means that if you have a 2.0 mm gap between your teeth, you’ll have to wait about 3 and a half months for the gap to close. However, most dentists recommend wearing the aligners for three to six months to fix teeth gaps and prevent others from appearing. In complex cases, you should wear retainers after the treatment.

How much does it cost to close gap teeth with Invisalign?

The cost of Invisalign for gap teeth can vary depending on the individual’s dental situation and requirements. On average, the cost of Invisalign for gap teeth can be anywhere from £2,100 to £3,795. Invisalign cases typically cost about £2,000 to £4,500 depending on the scope of the treatment and the complexity of tooth movement required. The exact price varies depending on the length of treatment and the particular dental issues involved. Some insurance plans cover Invisalign, however you should check with your insurance provider to be certain. Some dentists may also offer flexible multi-year payment plans.

What are some other orthodontic treatments for gap teeth?

Other orthodontic treatments for gap teeth include traditional braces, clear braces, and retainers. Traditional braces are the most common orthodontic treatment for gap teeth and are made of metal brackets and wires that are attached to the teeth. Clear braces are similar to traditional braces but are made of clear or tooth-colored materials that blend in with the teeth. Retainers can also be used to close gaps between teeth and are typically worn at night.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign works by using a series of clear plastic aligners that are custom-made to fit your teeth. The Invisalign aligners are custom designed to slowly and gradually shift your teeth from their current gappy position into the desired position over time. You will need to wear each set of aligners for roughly two weeks before moving on to the next set of aligners. The length of treatment to close gap teeth varies depending on the severity of the case and can typically range between 6 months to 18 years. Invisalign aligners are completely removable – that means you can take them off when you eat your favourite foods, brush teeth, or floss. However, it’s important that you wear your aligners for at least 22 hours every day to ensure the best straightening results.

What are some other benefits of Invisalign?

Some other benefits of Invisalign include:

  1. They are virtually invisible and are made of clear plastic.
  2. They are completely removable, meaning you can take out your Invisalign aligners when you eat your favourite food, brush or floss your teeth.
  3. They are more comfortable than traditional braces because they don’t have any metal brackets or wires that can irritate your mouth.
  4. They require fewer office visits than traditional braces because you change the aligners at home.
  5. They can be used to treat a wide range of orthodontic issues, including overbite, underbite, crossbite, and crowded teeth.

How do I get started with Invisalign?

To get started with Invisalign, you should schedule a free consultation with one of our London-based Invisalign dentists. During your Invisalign consultation, the dentist will evaluate your teeth and determine if Invisalign braces are the right braces treatment for you. If you are a good candidate for Invisalign, the dentist will take impressions of your teeth and use them to create a 3D model of your mouth. This 3D model is then used to create custom-made aligners for your treatment. Once your aligners are ready, you will begin wearing them and changing them out every two weeks until your treatment is complete.

What are some common side effects of Invisalign?

Some common side effects of Invisalign include:

  1. Soreness or discomfort in the mouth or teeth.
  2. Difficulty speaking normally at first.
  3. Increased saliva production.
  4. Dry mouth.
  5. Mouth sores or ulcers.
  6. Allergic reactions to the aligner material.

These side effects are usually mild and go away on their own within a few days to a week.

What is the success rate of Invisalign?

The success rate of Invisalign varies depending on the severity of the case and how well the patient follows the treatment plan. However, studies have shown that Invisalign is effective in treating a wide range of orthodontic issues and has a success rate of around 90%. It’s important to follow your dentist’s instructions and wear your aligners as directed to ensure the best results.

What is the difference between Invisalign and traditional braces?

The main difference between Invisalign and traditional braces is that Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to move your teeth into the desired position, while traditional braces use metal brackets and wires. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed when you eat, brush your teeth, or floss. Traditional braces are more noticeable and cannot be removed until the end of treatment. Invisalign treatment usually takes less time than traditional braces and requires fewer visits to the dentist.
