Invisalign is a treatment whereby patients wear a set of custom made clear plastic aligners over the top, bottom or both sets of teeth. Every two weeks a new, fractionally different aligner is provided. Patients wear different aligners until the teeth are straightened.
At your initial visit we evaluate, assess and discuss the course of treatment with you. We take impressions and pictures of your teeth and send these to Invisalign for processing.
Invisalign uses advanced 3-D computer imaging technology to transform your impressions into a series of clear and removable aligners.
You'll wear each set of clear aligners day and night for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. For best results Invisalign aligners need to be worn for 23 hours a day. Patients, on average, complete treatment in approximately 12-18 months. You'll visit us at regular intervals to check your progress.
An important aspect of Invisalign is its discreet nature and for this very reason, Invisalign is a real alternative to fixed braces in improving smiles. It is also more hygienic and can be removed as and when required.
