A 3-D computer-imaging technology is used to make a series of bespoke custom-made clear aligners. The individual aligners move your teeth little by little. Each aligner is worn for two weeks. By the time you are wearing your final aligner, your teeth will be in the desired final position.
This will be determined by one of our Invisalign providers, as each case is individual, varies depending the complexity of the treatment you require and the amount of movement your teeth will need to make.
The aligners are completely transparent, and so are nearly invisible making them very popular with adults who wish to discretely undergo orthodontic treatment.
Our patients who are undergoing treatment believe the aligners are more comfortable than traditional braces. This is mainly due to the aligners being removable and so eating is much easier as compared to traditional braces.
Clinically, the aligners have less of a traumatic effect on the gums and supporting tissues. Some Invisalign treatments have been claimed to be quicker than traditional orthodontics.
The aligners are affordable and payments are spread out over the course of treatment.
If you have all of your adult teeth, most patients can be treated with Invisalign, even if the teeth have crowns and bridges. Invisalign can be used to successfully treat many issues such as the following:
Spaces between the teeth
Is Invisalign suitable for adults?
This treatment can be used to treat anyone who has a full set of adult teeth, especially the adult molars
You have to be prepared to wear the retainer at all times, other than when you are eating or drinking or brushing and flossing your teeth. This will amount to 22-23 hours per day to achieve the best results.
It is normal to feel a temporary discomfort when you wear the aligners for the first few days. The aligners are smooth and so are not harmful to the inside of your mouth, but you will feel a little pressure on your teeth and this is a good sign the retainers are working.
As with any conventional treatments, you will feel a slight discomfort at first. The aligners may also temporarily affect the speech of some people, and you may also have a slight lisp for the first few days.
Most dentists recommend that anyone who has completed orthodontic treatment, whether with braces or Invisalign treatment, use a retainer to prevent teeth from gradually shifting back toward their initial position. Every case is different, so ask your dentist if you need retainers.
“These braces were painless, quick and have given me the confidence to smile again, would highly recommend this to anyone who has crooked teeth”
