Invisalign is the leading brand in ‘invisible’ braces. It’s the perfect cosmetic system to aesthetically align your front teeth. Invisalign consists of a series of removable clear (nearly invisible) aligners that are custom made through 3D computer technology, which allows them to straighten and align our teeth to give you the perfect smile.
How do Invisalign Aligners work?
The 3D computer technology creates a bespoke treatment for you in a series of aligners. A dental aligner is a clear (almost invisible) tray that fits very closely over your teeth and must be worn in your mouth day and night. These aligners are designed to move your teeth in very small distances (millimetres) by applying a specific force on the teeth gradually to achieve the new perfect position. Your dentist will closely monitor the movement and therefore your treatment plan will involve periodic visits to check on your progress.
How long does it take?
Treatment time will vary depending on the amount of tooth movement required. Simple cases may achieve results within 6 months however more complex cases may be 18 months or longer. The Invisalign process only works when you wear your aligners – so they should be worn all day and night, only removing them to eat and drink. The aligners are clear and smooth, and having no bulky metal parts make it easier for you to maintain excellent dental hygiene during the treatment. Invisalign dental aligners provide a discreet way of achieving your perfect, straight smile.
