What is Invisalign?
Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position.
Comfortable, clear and removable – Invisalign transforms your smile without disrupting your life
How does Invisalign work?
The aligners are made to fit your teeth (and your teeth only). Using state of the art computer imaging technology, each aligner is slightly different from the next, meaning that your teeth can be gently moved and realigned over the course of the treatment.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign aligners are clear and almost invisble when worn. Unlike other orthodontic treatments, Invisalign aligners are comfortable and removable. Patients can eat and drink as normal during treatment, and it is easy for them to keep their mouths clean and fresh.
The Invisible Aligner
Once your Invisalign treatment has started, you will wear each set of the invisible aligners for two weeks. The aligners are held in place by attachments that are bonded to your teeth.
These attachments are very small tooth-coloured lumps, and at the end of the treatment they are polished off with no long-term harm to the teeth.
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
Most Invisalign Tooth Straightening treatments last between 9 and 18 months.
This is completely subjective and varies based on the position of your teeth and the complexity of the movements involved. To find out exactly how long the treatment will last for you, please visit us for a complimentary consultation.
