Clarity is a wonderful thing; everybody wants a clearer complexion, clearer conscience, clearer visibility on a rainy road – the list is endless. Clarity enhances perception, wipes away uncertainty and instils confidence.
The un-glamorous history of braces
Braces have been used for centuries to straighten out teeth and thankfully we’ve come a long way from the days of using small animal intestines to fix crooked teeth. The metal brace, introduced in the 1970’s, are responsible for successfully transforming smiles across the world.
Invisalign, however, is one step up.
A touch of magic
Invisalign braces are the equivalent of Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak but for the teeth. The revolutionary clear brace is less than 1mm thick and used to straighten teeth as an alternative to old fashioned metal brackets or wires. Gone are the days of anxiety and embarrassment caused by ugly, clunky metal train tracks glued to your teeth. No longer will you feel as though everyone’s eyes instantaneously bolt in the direction of your metallic mouth. No longer will you feel awkward, self-conscious and geeky. No longer will you feel like an extra from a 1970’s horror movie.
At last, you can sort out your teeth and smile without having to pay the price of severe psychological trauma.
Practical yet pleasing
Invisalign braces are not only clear and aesthetically pleasing, they are also practical. Unlike metal braces which are irrevocably cemented to the teeth, Invisalign braces can be removed whenever you want, affording you the rare flexibility to be brace-free for important upcoming events such as a wedding or graduation ceremony. Invisalign really gives you the freedom to be flexible.
The Invisalign treatment package is like nothing else. Your Invisalign specialist will begin by taking X-ray images of your teeth from which a series of 3D images are created. The intelligent technology creates a visual journey of your teeth and jaw throughout treatment and a set of retainers for each stage of the journey are formulated. This means that you will receive a batch of retainers that you should change every two to three weeks. Treatment takes 11 months on average which will be interspersed with visits to your orthodontist to check your progress.
