What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the perfect teeth straightening treatment for patients who do not want to wear unsightly metal braces for a long period of time. Comprised of a series of clear aligners – each of which is bespoke – the treatment will gradually and comfortably move teeth into the desired location. The beauty of Invisalign is that the aligners are practically invisible.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

  • The aligners are virtually invisible to others
  • There is no need to feel self-conscious during treatment
  • The aligners are removable, offering patients greater flexibility
  • Oral health is easy to maintain
  • Invisalign braces are bespoke
  • Tooth movement is gradual, maximising comfort and minimising pain

What does treatment involve?

To begin with a mould and photographs will be taken of your teeth. These are sent to the Invisalign laboratory in the USA, where a series of clear aligners will be created. Each aligner in the series will be shaped slightly differently, in order to encourage your teeth to move in a gradual and effective fashion. Once the aligners are returned to your dentist, your Invisalign treatment can begin.

Each aligner should be worn for 2 weeks – or according to the specific instructions of your dentist – after which you should move on to the next aligner in the series. It is recommended that you wear your aligner for at least 20 hours per day, giving you ample time to remove them to eat, drink and clean your teeth. Regular check-ups will need to be attended to monitor treatment development.
