When it comes to orthodontic treatment, we want all our patients to enjoy the best results and this is why we offer the world’s leading treatment systems. One of our most popular treatments is Invisalign, a clear aligner system that moves the teeth without anyone being able to see a brace.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an invisible alternative to fixed braces and uses a series of aligners to re-position and realign the teeth. These aligners work in a set order to gradually move the teeth into the desired position. Each aligner is different, but all are worn for two weeks and treatment is planned in advance, so you can see images of the treatment process and get an idea of what your smile will look like once you remove the last aligner for the final time.
This system is hugely popular because it provides patients with an option that eliminates anxiety and worry about image. With these aligners, the look of the smile won’t change and you can go through your treatment without suffering from a lack of confidence when you smile or speak to people.
What is so good about Invisalign?
Invisalign is simple, effective and invisible. The aligners cannot be seen, which gives you more confidence once you start treatment, and they are removable, so you have control of your treatment and can enjoy more flexibility than with a fixed brace. Invisalign aligners contain no bands or metal parts and they are suitable for patients with a wide range of orthodontic issues, from minor and moderate crowding to spaces between the teeth.
How does treatment work?
The treatment process is fairly straightforward and involves wearing each aligner in a set order for two weeks at a time. The aligners should be worn for a minimum of 21 hours per day and removed when you intend to brush your teeth or eat.
