If you are looking to straighten your smile, but don’t like the appearance of traditional braces, Invisalign may be right for you. Read on to discover more about this unobtrusive and increasingly popular treatment.
Invisalign is a dental treatment that uses nearly invisible aligners to straighten your teeth. A technician scans your teeth, and then uses computer modeling to create a clear plastic mold that’s right for you.
Why Choose Invisalign?
Everyone deserves to love their smile. But traditional braces are not ideal for everybody. Wires can feel bulky or uncomfortable. Plus, braces can be hazardous for some people such as those who regularly engage in high contact sports.
Others may simply not like the aesthetic of traditional braces. The removable Invisalign aligners allow you to enjoy foods that would become stuck in wire braces without worry. Plus, cleaning them is simple. Invisalign is a great solution for anybody looking to transform their smile.
How does Invisalign Work?
At your initial consultation, we will take a look at your teeth and discuss what you would like to achieve. We’ll then take impressions of your teeth and create a plan to determine how long your Invisalign treatment will take.
After setting up a treatment plan, we will provide you with your first bespoke aligner, custom-made for your teeth. The aligner needs to be worn for two weeks (except when eating and cleaning your teeth) before being swapped for a new aligner.
Treatments last between 9-18 months, over which time you will have anywhere between 18 and 36 aligners either your upper or lower teeth, or both. This process ensures that teeth move gradually, minimizing discomfort.
