Invisalign - Invisible Braces - no more metal train tracks
Clear braces to straighten teeth. Invisalign uses a chain of clear aligners that are custom moulded to fit your teeth perfectly. The virtually invisible aligners gradually reposition your teeth into a smile you’ll be proud of.
Why is it used?
To straighten crowded, spaced or misaligned teeth, creating a beautiful smile in an invisible manor. Over half a million people have opted to use the Invisalign system due to the sheer convenience and ease of the treatment. Also deciding to straighten teeth which are too crowded or widely spaced can prevent unhealthy conditions such as gum disease. Straighter and better aligned teeth help gums fit tighter around each tooth and they become easier to clean. Whilst using Invisalign you can continue to brush and floss normally.
Invisalign treatment starts with a dental examination by our experienced Invisalign dentist. He or she will examine your teeth and develop a computer model of your treatment, using casts, picture and radiographs. Together you can review and agree on your Invisalign treatment plan (Clincheck).
Invisalign will then make a series of custom made aligners that will only fit you. Each aligner is slightly different, moving your teeth gradually into the desired position. You wear each aligner for two weeks, before moving on to the next in the series.
We will see you for a progress review at regular intervals and you will then receive your new aligners. Each Aligner will move your teeth little by little, week by week, until they reach the desired position.
Treatment length will vary depending on your case, but the average Invisalign treatment is nine to fifteen months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30 aligners. Finally all that remains is for you to show off your beautiful new smile!
