A clear, removable treatment that straightens teeth without affecting your day-to-day
Many people are put off having braces because of how noticeable they are. Invisalign straightens teeth while looking near invisible. Using a series of clear aligners, Invisalign gradually moves your teeth towards your desired smile.
Why choose invisalign?
- Clear – virtually invisible so hardly anyone will notice you are straightening your teeth
- Custom-made for you
- Removable – removed for eating, brushing and flossing so you can still eat and drink all your favourite foods
- Comfortable – there are no metal brackets or wires to irritate your gums or the inside of your mouth
- Effective – you will begin to see the benefits of a better smile right from the start of treatment
What does treatment involve?
Our orthodontists will take impressions of your teeth. Your entire treatment and individual tooth movements will be planned and you will be able to visualise your treatment from start to finish through animated visuals. A series of clear aligners are then custom-made for you that will gradually move your teeth in to the desired position.
Each set of clear aligners is worn day and night for 3 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. The aligners should be worn for at least 22 hours per day for the best results. As treatment progresses, you will notice the teeth gradually move to their final straightened position as you replace the aligners.
You will visit your orthodontist once every 6-8 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned and to collect the next set of aligners.
Total treatment time averages 9 to 18 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is 18 to 36, but this will vary between individual patients.
