Invisalign is a modern alternative to traditional fixed braces, which offers you the opportunity to enjoy a stunning smile without the worry of anyone being able to see your brace. With Invisalign, you were a series of light, clear aligners over a period of time; these aligners are removable and they work in a specified order to guide the teeth into position.
Invisalign is suitable for patients with a wide range of orthodontic issues, including mild crowding, gaps between the teeth and crooked teeth, and it represents a really good option for patients who are wary of having braces because they don’t want to expose a mouth full of metal when they smile or worry about what other people think. With Invisalign, it’s possible to get the smile you crave without having to go through the stress of wearing visible braces.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign uses a different tack to other orthodontic treatments, choosing to use a series of custom-designed aligners, rather than a single fixed brace. Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks and the aligners should remain in place for at least 21 hours per day; the aligners are removed for eating and brushing the teeth.
Invisalign treatment is planned in advance using state of the art software, which plots and maps tooth movement; the aligners are specially designed for each individual and each one is slightly different to allow for tooth movement. After the last aligner has been taken out after 2 weeks, treatment is complete and you can enjoy your amazing new smile.
