Smile during as well as after treatment with Invisalign
Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten your teeth. Using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners, Invisalign is the greatest advancement in orthodontics to date. Whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart, or have shifted since originally wearing braces, Invisalign will give you a new reason to smile.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners that gradually move your teeth into position by exerting mild pressure in the desired areas. This removes the need for metal wires or brackets like you find in traditional braces. Every two weeks you will need to change your aligners to encourage your teeth to move little by little, towards the smile you have always wanted. The aligners are custom-made through our accredited experience and computer imaging technology which means they fit your teeth exactly. This technology also allows you to see your future smile even before you begin treatment.
Types of Invisalign
There are four different types of Invisalign, although each uses the clear plastic aligners to move your teeth into position.
Invisalign Comprehensive: This is beneficial to patients who need major orthodontic work. Treatment will usually take between 12 and 24 months, though in most cases results are seen more quickly using this method than traditional metal braces.
Invisalign Lite: This type is ideal for patients with minor orthodontic problems affecting the front six teeth as results can be seen in six months.
Invisalign Express: Invisalign’s other fast treatment option, Invisalign Express can bring about results in as little as three months.
Invisalign First: Designed for children presenting with early orthodontic issues, Invisalign First aligners could help reduce the extent of treatment your child requires in their teenage years.
Invisalign is also a suitable orthodontic treatment option for teenagers.
3 great benefits of Invisalign
Virtually invisible: No-one will even know you are wearing the aligners or receiving treatment.
Removable: Invisalign will not impact on your dietary or oral hygiene habits. You can eat, drink, brush and floss normally to maintain optimal dental hygiene.
Comfort: Invisalign aligners are comfortable to wear and because there are no metal brackets or wires, this orthodontic appliance reduces mouth irritation and oral sores generally associated with traditional braces. This also means you will spend less time in the dental chair.
