One of the most exciting developments in modern orthodontics is invisible braces. With clear braces, we can straighten the teeth without patients feeling any anxiety about how their treatment will affect their looks or their confidence. If you’re searching for an invisible means of banishing crooked or twisted teeth for good and getting a beautiful smile, allow us to introduce you to Invisalign.
Invisalign is a clear aligner system, which provides patients who wish to remain incognito during their treatment with an amazing alternative to traditional metal fixed braces. With this treatment, the aligners are virtually undetectable, so nobody needs to know that you’re having treatment and you can feel confident when you look in the mirror, take to the stage for a presentation or go for that all-important job interview.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign uses a series of appliances that are shaped according to a personalised treatment plan. Each one is different and all are custom-made. Each aligner remains in place for 2 weeks, and the aligners work in a set order.
During treatment, it’s important to wear the aligners for the recommended time each day. They can be taken out to brush your teeth and eat, but should be worn for at least 21-22 hours per day.
What are the advantages of Invisalign?
Invisalign offers a host of benefits for patients who are looking for a discreet way of straightening their teeth. These custom-made aligners are light, they use gentle force to move the teeth and they are virtually invisible. They are also removable, which means that they have very little impact on the way you go about your day to day business. You can eat without any worries about breaking your brace or getting anything stuck in the brackets and you can clean your teeth in the normal way.
