What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a removable clear aligner system, which straightens the teeth gradually using a series of braces. Each clear aligner is worn for two weeks at a time, with the next aligner along differing in shape to encourage the teeth to move.
How does it work?
You start your Invisalign treatment with a consultation to see if Invisalign is the best brace system for you. After this you will have impressions taken of your teeth to use to create your new aligners. You will then return to the dentist to receive your aligners and begin your treatment. Every few weeks you will pay another visit to the practice to make sure that your treatment is going as planned.
How is the treatment suitable for?
Invisalign can be used to treat a whole host of problems, including gaps between the teeth, crooked teeth, twisted teeth and overbitten teeth. In some cases fixed braces may be more appropriate but that will be decided during your initial consultation.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment provides patients with the option to correct their orthodontic problems without the need for anyone else to know and is ideal for anyone who already feels awkward when they smile.
Invisalign are also a great deal easier to clean, as they are removable and so do not hold the food and plaque fixed metal braces do.
