Invisalign invisible braces
Orthodontic problems are common and can have a negative effect on people's self-confidence. However, if you have crooked or twisted teeth, gaps between your teeth or crowded teeth, you don't need to worry any longer because Invisalign is the perfect solution.
The best thing about Invisalign is that the braces are virtually invisible, so nobody will even be able to notice them in your mouth. The aligners are removable and comfortable, you do not need to adjust what you eat and the braces are shown to promote good oral health. Also, there are no metal bits or painful bands to contend with.
Invisalign removable aligners have already helped more than half a million people to enjoy a brand new, beautiful smile.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic system with a difference. Unlike traditional fixed braces, they use a series of clear, removable aligners to gently guide teeth into alignment. The aligners are virtually invisible and there is no need to worry about your appearance during treatment.
How does Invisalign work?
The system includes a series of custom-made aligners that gradually align teeth. State of the art software is used to plan the treatment pathway and fabricate the bespoke aligners, which are worn for a fortnight and then substituted with the next aligner in the series until your teeth are straightened.
The length of treatment varies according to the individual and how much movement is required. Typically, treatment can last between 9 to 18 months. During the treatment period patients are advised to visit their dentist for regular check-ups.
What are the advantages of Invisalign?
The major advantage of Invisalign is that the aligners are virtually invisible when you smile, so nobody else will even know you are wearing them. Other advantages include:
- Precise treatment plan: So you will know how your smile will look upon treatment completion
- Comfort: The aligner reduce the risk of soreness and irritation
- No metal wires or brackets and no need for painful adjustments
- Flexibility: You can remove the aligners to eat, drink and for special occasions
- Improved oral hygiene
