Being able to achieve a beautiful straight smile without compromising on appearance is what has led to Invisalign® becoming the orthodontic treatment of choice for adults. Many adults who desired a straight smile were reluctant to undergo orthodontic treatment due to the impact that metal braces would have on social and professional situations.
Invisalign® consists of a series of clear custom moulded aligners made using 3-D computer imaging software. This enables our clinicians to outline your entire procedure progression on screen before your treatment commences. Each set of aligners is replaced every couple of weeks with each new set, moving your teeth a little more until they have straightened to the final correct position.
Unlike fixed braces Invisalign® aligners are removable so you are able to eat all your favourite foods as well as brush and floss normally. Additionally, being clear means that people won't even notice you are wearing them.
You will need to visit our practice about once every 6 weeks so we can ensure your treatment is progressing as planned. The average treatment time using Invisalign® is 9 - 15 months, although this will depend on your personal situation. Following your assessment appointment, our clinicians can provide a more accurate treatment timeframe.
Using Invisalign® , you can enjoy life as well as achieve a straight smile without compromising on your appearance.
