Invisalign was created to straighten your teeth almost invisibly by using a series of clear, BPA-free custom-made aligners. Invisalign or clear aligner therapy can be the right treatment for a range of age groups, including tweens, teens and adults.
These removable aligners gradually move your teeth into an ideal position, creating a natural and straight smile. All of this is done in a discreet fashion and no one will know your undergoing orthodontic treatment, unless you tell them that is.
Invisalign is a step forward in orthodontic treatment.
What’s involved in the Invisalign treatment?
The first step on your Invisalign journey is to create a personal, virtual treatment plan using state-of-the-art 3D scans. This comprehensive treatment plan will determine the amount of time you need to wear your Invisalign aligners and how many aligners you will need.
Each patient’s orthodontic treatment plan is a little different. Depending on your current oral health and teeth position, your Invisalign treatment can take anywhere from 9 to 24 months. You will be given new aligners at every orthodontic visit and will need to change your aligners every two weeks as each aligner will move specific teeth a precise, yet gentle amount.
You will need to wear your aligners 24 hours a day and each week your teeth will make small movements until they have moved into the desired position.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign uses innovative techniques to produce individually crafted aligners, resulting in a totally customised experience. Alongside the most common aesthetic benefits, Invisalign has a range of other benefits, which can:
- Reduce pain and irritation
- Keep eating your favourite foods
- Improve your oral health and hygiene
- Straighten your teeth discreetly
- Less time at the orthodontist
- Remove the aligners for special events
- Effective for a wide array of issues
- Easier to see your results
Invisalign is a great choice for students and adults who need to have an “appliance free mouth” for performances, work presentations or meetings and important social events.
If you have had orthodontic treatment before and your teeth have moved over time, Invisalign could help. Invisalign is a practical option for most teeth alignment cases and it’s usually the first choice for teenagers and adults.
We cater for the inbetweeners
Invisalign Teen, or Invisalign Teen Mandibular Advancement have been specifically designed to cater for our tweens and teenage patients who may need to have the appliance over a longer period of time. This may be due to the presence of deciduous/baby teeth or for treatments that utilise the growth of the lower jaw to enable bite correction.
