What is Invisalign in Lincolnshire?
Invisalign is the new way to straighten teeth invisibly! Unlike other braces, Invisalign uses a series of clear, plastic retainers that sit over the top of your teeth.
Invisalign is a comfortable way to straighten teeth as there’s no direct contact against your gums. They’re also removable braces – you take them out to eat, drink and brush your teeth. Best of all, they’re so discreet they’re practically invisible.
Invisalign is proving to be a popular way to straighten teeth with hundreds of patients from Market Rasen, Sudbrooke, Nettleham, Gainsborough, Fiskerton, Reepham, Caistor, Welton, Cherry Willingham, Keelby, and Lincolnshire.
Invisalign braces can be used to:
- Straighten crooked teeth
- Close gaps between teeth
- Space out crowded teeth
- Move protruding teeth
- Correct some bite problems such as an under or overbite

What is the process for Invisalign
At your free consultation at Wolds Dental Studio in Market Rasen, we will examine your teeth and talk with you about what you’d like to change or improve.
We will discuss the benefits of Invisalign and whether this is the right form of teeth straightening for you.
At this stage we will also take photos and scan your teeth to give digital images. This will show us how your teeth look now and how they will change until your teeth have reached their correct position. These digital images will be used to make up your unique Invisalign aligners should you wish to go ahead with the treatment.
Once your Invisalign clear braces are ready, you will be invited back to Wolds Dental Studio in Market Rasen. We will show you how to put your Invisalign braces in and take them out to eat, drink and brush your teeth.
Invisalign is made up of a series of clear aligners. You will need to wear your first set of aligners for a week or two before you move on to the next set of aligners, gradually working your way through all the aligners in your treatment plan until your teeth have reached their final position.
You must wear your aligners for a minimum of 20 – 22 hours a day for the treatment to work, so we suggest that you only remove them to eat, drink or brush your teeth.

- Invisalign can be used to treat a range of orthodontic problems including crooked, overcrowded or gappy teeth
Frequently Asked Questions about Invisalign
Why do I need to keep changing my Invisalign aligners?
Your Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth at certain points in your treatment. Each one allows for the small movement in your teeth that is slowly happening whilst wearing your braces. It’s important that you change them according to your orthodontist’s specifications and wear the correct aligner at the correct time.
Why do I need to take my Invisalign aligners out to eat and drink?
Invisalign is made of a thin, clear plastic. If you eat with them in, you risk chewing through them. If you consume dark coloured food or drinks whilst wearing Invisalign, you can stain the aligners which will look unsightly as well as be unhygienic. For these reasons, we suggest that you only drink cold water whilst wearing Invisalign
How long will it take for Invisalign to straighten my teeth?
This will be different for each patient as it depends upon the severity of your case. For minor orthodontic cases, Invisalign may take about 6 months of treatment. For more severe orthodontic cases, it may take between 12 and 18 months of Invisalign treatment.
