Invisalign is an “almost” invisible alternative to braces with aesthetic and oral hygiene benefits. Worn all the time, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners (clear plates) to gradually straighten the teeth, close spaces, and improve the bite. Invisalign applies modern computerised technology and manufacturing to tailor a treatment for each individual by the way of 3-D computer imaging.
Clear aligners are a great solution for those who lead busy lifestyles or for adults who experienced conventional braces of the past. Aligners are removed for brushing, eating & may also be removed for special occasions.
Why get Invisalign?
A more discrete way of straightening teeth is with clear aligners. Invisalign® uses a series of custom-made aligners to transform your smile. Invisalign is an “almost” invisible alternative to braces with aesthetic and oral hygiene benefits.
For the best results, Invisalign clear aligners are to be worn 20 to 22 hours a day. Each aligner is slightly different, you’ll wear a set of aligners for one to two weeks or as prescribed by our orthodontist, before moving onto the next set.
Advantages of Invisalign® are:
Better oral health
Your orthodontist will use advanced 3D imaging equipment and software to develop custom made aligners designed to move your teeth into the desired position. The Invisalign software allows patients to see a virtual model of what their final result will look like before the aligners have even been ordered.
Each Invisalign patient will receive a series of aligners; each aligner will be worn for 2-3 weeks. By exerting mild forces, Invisalign moves the teeth into the prescribed position.
