Invisalign clear braces
The convenient discreet route to straighter teeth
Have you always wanted a straighter, more confident smile but find the idea of traditional metal and wire braces off-putting? There are many advantages to straighter teeth – by fixing a misaligned bite, reducing gaps or straightening crooked teeth you can improve both your oral health and your self-image.
Invisalign clear aligners are the modern alternative to traditional braces. Comfortable, convenient and discreet – with Invisalign it is possible to achieve straighter teeth without the need for visible braces.
How does Invisalign work?
If Invisalign is right for you, your dentist will start by take an impression of your teeth. This will be used to create a series of custom designed transparent aligners that fit neatly over the top of the natural teeth. These aligners will gradually and gently move the teeth from their original point to the desired position. Invisalign aligners are easy to remove and they are made from smooth thermoplastic so, unlike traditional braces, there are no metal brackets or wires to irritate your mouth.
Each aligner lasts for approximately 1-2 weeks, at which point you move on to the next in the series. For most people there’s no need to see the dentist every time they change aligner, the majority of patients only need to visit their dentist every 4-6 weeks for progress checks. Overall treatment times will vary depending on individual needs but most treatment is completed within 9 months.
What are the advantages of Invisalign?
Invisalign clear aligners allow you to conveniently and subtly improve your smile. At the same time straightening your teeth will help to increase the lifespan of the natural teeth and reduce the chance of incurring further costly dental work in the future.
The Invisalign system is comfortable, virtually undetectable and has been developed to fit today’s lifestyles. We appreciate there will be times you will need to remove your aligners so they have been designed with this in mind. When you need to eat, play sport or clean for your teeth the aligners are quick and easy to remove, however to achieve the best results we recommend that you wear your aligners for 22 hours a day.
