Invisalign - how it works
Invisalign® is the clear way to straighten teeth without braces. Instead, this treatment method uses clear plastic aligners, which are removable and virtually invisible. This means you can benefit from orthodontic treatment without anyone knowing you're having it. Plus, because the aligners are removable you can eat and drink whatever you want. No one will suspect a thing!
Brushing and flossing is also easy. Just remove the aligners before you get stuck into your oral hygiene routine, which is essential for maintaining healthy gums and teeth throughout treatment and after. Oh, and did we mention Invisalign aligners have no wires, metal or brackets to cause mouth abrasions, so you're guaranteed a more comfortable treatment experience all round.
Many of our patients had avoided orthodontic treatment because they didn't want to wear traditional braces. Now they are happily improving their smile and enjoying the benefits of Invisalign.
How does Invisalign work?
Straight teeth without braces? How is that possible? It is, thanks to the technology behind Invisalign. It all starts with ClinCheck software that enables us to take extremely accurate digital impressions of your teeth. We can map the movement your teeth will take during treatment as they gradually move into a straighter position, achieving the smile you’ve always wanted.
Using the impressions we have of your teeth and jaws, we’ll get a series of thin plastic aligners customized to your mouth. This not only makes for a comfortable fit, but ensures the very best results from Invisalign treatment. You’ll need to wear these aligners for 22 hours a day, only removing them for eating, brushing and flossing, and change them every two weeks for a new set. Over time, your aligners will guide your teeth into their new place.
