’Invisaline’ or ‘Invisalign’? The definitive answer

Updated: Apr 11, 2019

If you think Invisalign is spelt ‘invisaline’, you’re not alone. Plenty of people think the same, which is one of the reasons why we include it here. At Winchester Orthodontics, we don’t think anyone should miss out on the benefits of invisible teeth straightening for any reason, let alone a completely understandable misspelling. Now that you’re here, we can talk to you about Invisalign and some of the other offerings you can explore at the orthodontist in Hampshire.

What can you do at the orthodontist in Hampshire?

The orthodontist in Hampshire is here to make your realignment dreams come true. They design treatment plans to straighten the wobbliest of smiles, close unsightly gaps and ensure that everyone can bite down in comfort.

What treatments do orthodontists use?

Primarily, orthodontists use braces or aligners to straighten teeth. Occasionally, they might use other equipment such as dental implants to use as anchors for orthodontic work. The whole teeth-realignment process is very precise and much of the planning work is done digitally these days. The orthodontist needs to track the probable effect of any work on all of the teeth in the mouth to avoid issues.

Braces come in different materials and use various methods for teeth straightening. The orthodontist at Winchester Orthodontics will talk you through each method that is available to you. In the end, you will be able to make an informed choice about which you want to use.

How long will you see the orthodontist for?

You may be referred to an orthodontist for the duration of your treatment and then return to your regular dentist afterwards. This can take anything from a few months to a couple of years. Another option is that the orthodontist will work in concert with your regular dentist. The exact course of treatment will depend on the complexity of your case and the conditions in your mouth.

Your teeth need to be healthy to begin with so, if you need any preparatory care, this will be performed before you work with the orthodontist to realign your teeth. Orthodontists are highly trained in their particular skill set that they are usually much in demand and rarely do regular dental work.
