Invisalign® invisible Braces

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® has been regarded as an innovative way to straighten misaligned teeth and redefine a patient’s smile, and in many cases provides a clear alternative to the traditional and obvious, metal braces used in orthodontic practice. The clinically proven system uses computer aided technology to create a virtual 3D model of the finished treatment, and to manufacture a series of clear aligners (“braces”) prescribed specifically to fit the patient’s teeth. Being almost undetectable, the aligners are removable and therefore facilitates ease when eating and brushing. Invisalign® is suitable for adults and most teenagers.

So how does the Invisalign® system work? It’s simple:

  • Aligners gradually move the teeth in small increments over a period of time
  • Each aligner should be worn for at least 22 hours a day
  • Each aligner should be changed over every two weeks
  • Aligners should be removed whilst eating and brushing
  • Your dentist or orthodontist will monitor the progress of tooth movement regularly
    Treatment times vary from 6 months to 24 months depending on the complexity of the case.
