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.
