Invisalign is an innovative approach to effectively straighten your teeth. It uses a series of custom-made, clear, removable aligners that gradually move teeth towards the desired position. Over 4 million patients worldwide have been treated with Invisalign, and it is used in more than 50 countries. Invisalign has proved to be as effective as straightening teeth as traditional braces, but have the additional benefit of being removable so you can take them out for meals as well as to maintain good oral hygiene.
Each aligner moves teeth incrementally and is worn for approximately two weeks, then replaced by the next series of aligners until the desired smile is achieved.
To summarise, the main benefits include:
Invisalign is nearly invisible
Invisalign is removable so you can eat and drink what you want throughout your treatment, and good oral hygiene can be maintained
Invisalign is comfortable as there are no metal brackets or wires that may cause irritation in your mouth
Patients are able to view their own virtual treatment plan before treatment starts, so you can be confident in what your teeth will look like when treatment is completed and decide if this is the right option for you
