Orthodontic problems, such as spaces between the teeth and overlapping teeth, are very common and if you’re one of the many patients out there who desires a straight smile but is reluctant to wear braces, we may have just the solution for you. Many of our patients are wary of having treatment because they don’t want to wear unattractive braces or worry about what other people will think or say. If this sounds familiar, why not try Invisalign?
The ins and outs of Invisalign, our secret weapon!
Invisalign is a clear brace system, which enables you to go through the treatment process completely incognito. Rather than using a single brace, Invisalign employs a sequence of specially designed clear aligners; these aligners are custom-made for each individual patient and they are made entirely from transparent plastic, making them completely invisible when you smile.
Invisalign aligners facilitate secret treatment, but they also offer greater flexibility, as you can take them out when you eat, drink and brush your teeth. The aligners also use gentle forces and they do not contain any metal parts, so patients can enjoy a hassle-free, painless treatment process.
How does Invisalign treatment work?
Invisalign aligners are designed based on a personalised treatment plan, which plots the movement of the teeth using advanced computer software. Each aligner is slightly different and the treatment works in sequence, so once one has been in place for 2 weeks, it is then replaced with the next in the series until the last aligner is removed and you can show off your amazing new smile.
Invisalign is suitable for most minor and moderate orthodontic cases and it presents a really appealing option for patients who are conscious of their image and would rather opt for a more discreet treatment than traditional fixed braces.
