Invisalign turns everything you know about braces on its head; it is an advanced orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth using multiple sets of near-invisible aligners. If the thought of visible wires or food stuck in brackets has been putting you off fixing your dental imperfections, this hassle-free alternative could be just the thing for you.
How does it work?
At your consultation, we’ll use our digital scanner to create a 3D simulation of what your teeth could look like post-treatment – if you’re happy with this, we will order your aligners and begin treatment.
We will fit your custom-made trays, and then the rest is up to you! Invisalign requires much fewer check-in appointments than traditional, fixed braces, although we will need to see you now and again to check that everything is going as planned.
Each set of aligners needs to be worn for at least 22 hours per day, and you will change them every two weeks – as you do so, your teeth will gradually move to the desired position, as outlined in your treatment plan.
How long does it take and what are the benefits?
The time it takes to straighten your smile depends on the severity of your misalignment; in some cases, patients see results in as little as six months, although more severe cases can take up to two years.
Many patients find traditional metal braces uncomfortable and unsightly - alternatively, Invisalign aligners are almost invisible, making for a completely discreet experience; no one needs to know you’re having treatment!
They are removable, making eating, drinking and cleaning your teeth far more convenient and stress-free. You can even take them out for meetings or socialising, as long as you remember to put them right back in afterwards!
