Invisalign / Orthodontics
Evenly aligned teeth can create a more appealing appearance and may be easier to brush and floss. Not everyone had the opportunity to wear braces during childhood or may have seen their teeth shift with age. If you would love a straighter smile but would prefer not to have conventional braces, Invisalign might be an excellent solution. This system can treat most common orthodontic problems and is extremely discreet.
What is Invisalign?
Instead of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear, BPA-free plastic aligners, custom-made to fit tightly yet comfortably over your teeth and to reposition them precisely. The aligners are removable for brushing and flossing, and for mealtimes, so it is easy to maintain excellent oral hygiene. Each set of aligners is worn for two weeks before being discarded for the next set in the series.
Treatment is pre-planned using specialised software, allowing our dentist to plan precisely how each tooth will move. The software creates virtual 3-D images showing how your teeth will look once treatment is completed. Viewing these images will help you to determine if treatment is the right solution for you. Most people typically complete treatment within a year, but the time required may be shorter or longer depending on the tooth corrections necessary.
