What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an invisible aligner system that employs a series of custom-made clear appliances to align the teeth. Invisalign treatment is planned in advance using the latest 3D imaging software and each patient receives a collection of bespoke aligners, to be worn in a specific order. Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks.
Invisalign aligners look completely different to a traditional brace. These aligners are light and clear and they are placed over the teeth, rather than being attached to the teeth. The aligners slide out easily and are designed to be removed when you eat, drink and brush your teeth.
The advantages of Invisalign
Although braces are becoming increasingly common, there is still a social stigma attached to wearing braces and many patients are reluctant to have treatment because they don’t want the hassle or worry of wearing visible braces. With Invisalign, you can go through the entire treatment process free from anxiety because the aligners are virtually invisible.
Invisalign aligners also afford patients more freedom than traditional braces and they make life easier, as they can be taken out. You can enjoy better oral health due to the ease of keeping the aligners clean and the ability to take the aligner our to clean your teeth, and you have complete peace of mind when you eat; no more worrying about the embarrassing scenario of getting dinner stuck in your brace!
This system is also versatile and is suitable for a wide range of patients.
