If you thought orthodontic treatment was about coping with unsightly, painful braces for months on end, think again! Invisalign is a clear aligner system, which has revolutionised the way people undergo orthodontic treatment. With this fast, effective system, we can straighten the teeth quickly, comfortably and discreetly.Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment, which uses a set of individually designed aligners to move the teeth. These aligners are made from high-grade plastic, which is completely transparent, meaning that it is virtually impossible to see them when they are in the mouth.The treatment process involves wearing each aligner for 2 weeks; each patient receives a set of aligners, which work in order. The aligners should be in place for at least 21 hours per day, but they are removable, so you can take them out to eat and brush your teeth.Invisalign provides a solution for a range of common orthodontic issues, from crowding and spaces between the teeth, to crooked teeth and abnormalities with the bite. It is also suitable for patients of all ages and is a very popular choice for adult patients.Invisalign is suitable for most patients, but it may not always be the best solution. When you have your consultation, our expert dentists will have a thorough look at your teeth and analyse your bite to ascertain your orthodontic needs; once they have the relevant information, they can discuss treatment options with you and go through the different systems. You can ask any questions and your dentist can tailor their advice to suit any preferences you have; for example, if you want a treatment that works very quickly or you would rather have a discreet brace.
