Invisalign – The ‘invisible’ way to straighten teeth

 

Do you want straight teeth but don’t want braces?

 

In the past, braces were required to straighten teeth. Now there are new invisible options like Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten teeth without braces. The Invisalign System uses clear, removable ‘aligners’ to straighten teeth without metal or wires.

Does Invisalign really work?

Yes. In both clinical research and in dental practices around the world, Invisalign has been proven effective at straightening teeth. Over 1.5 million patients with a wide variety of dental challenges have been treated with Invisalign.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign uses 3-D computer imaging technology to depict the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position from which a series of custom-made “aligners” are produced. Each aligner moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about two weeks, then replaced by the next in the series until the final desired position is achieved.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

There are four main benefits of Invisalign over traditional braces:

  • Invisalign is nearly invisible – you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
  • Invisalign is removable – you can eat and drink what you want in treatment; you can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
  • Invisalign is comfortable – there are no metal brackets or wires to cause mouth irritation: no metal or wires also means you spend less time in the doctor’s chair getting adjustments.
  • Invisalign allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you start – so you can see how your teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

How long will treatment take?
The length of treatment is dependent on the severity of each individual patient’s orthodontic issues. Treatment may vary from anywhere between six months to two years with an average treatment taking around 12 to 14 months.
