Virtually invisible braces
Invisalign braces are a series of removable and virtually invisible clear aligners which gently move and straighten your teeth. By using Invisalign you can transform your smile without it affecting your day to day life.
The aligners are comfortable, clear and removable which means you can still eat whatever you want, and it is easy to keep your teeth and braces clean. When you want to eat or clean your teeth – just take the Invisalign brace out – so your mouth stays fresh and clean with none of the hygiene problems you can get with traditional ‘permanent’ braces.
You can also view your own virtual treatment plan, so you can see in advance what your new smile will look like.
How do Invisalign clear aligners work?
After an initial examination, we will talk with you about your orthodontic needs and your expectations, and will advise the treatment that is best suited to you and your lifestyle. We will take a digital scan of your teeth, and send these to a laboratory. Your series of Invisalign clear aligners are then created uniquely just for you. And, because the aligners are clear, they’re practically invisible, so you don’t need to feel self-conscious while wearing them.
Usually you will wear each one for a week, before moving onto the next one. The number of Invisalign aligners varies according to each patient’s needs, but is usually between 24 to 36 aligners for both upper and lower teeth, taking about 6 to 9 months for treatment to be completed.
