Invisalign braces are an innovative way of straightening your teeth. The near invisible aligners fit comfortably over your teeth, gently guiding them into their new position. Treatment time varies dependent largely on the severity of the initial problem, but generally can run from three to four months up to two years.
The aligners are virtually invisible so no-one will ever need know you’re wearing them. They are very easy to live with because they allow for normal function and speech.
Because the aligners are designed to be removed so that you can brush your teeth thoroughly, it’s easier to maintain a good level of oral hygiene. In addition, because the clear plastic is soft there are no sharp edges to catch your tongue or gums, so they’re considerably more comfortable than other forms of orthodontic treatment.
Each aligner is numbered in sequence and needs to be changed every 2 weeks. You will simply replace the existing aligner with the next aligner in the sequence. Every 4-6 weeks you’ll need to come back to our dentist so that we can monitor how your treatment is progressing. Once you’ve reached the last of your aligners and your dentist is happy with the results, it can be removed and the treatment is complete.
You’ll have beautifully straight teeth in just a few months!
