Lets you enjoy virtually invisible teeth straightening.
Invisalign consists of a series of nearly invisible removable aligners that you change every two weeks. Each aligner is individually designed for your teeth using 3D computer imaging technology. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move gradually until they have straightened to the final position. Average treatment time is normally about 1 year.
Using unique software, you will be able to view a ClinCheck movie that shows the series of movements your teeth will go through during the course of treatment. This allows you to visualise the expected result before you even begin treatment.
Invisalign is removable, so you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
Without metal wires or brackets, there is less irritation, and less adjustments and appointments involved than traditional braces.
Invisalign is suitable to treat a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowding, spacing, crossbites and open bites. It is suitable for people of all ages, and special features are included to cater for teenagers.
What does Invisalign treatment involve?
Before commencing Invisalign, it is important to have a thorough examination to detect and treat any active dental and periodontal disease that will compromise the fit of the aligners and final treatment outcome. If you have not had this done in the last 6 months, we can offer you this service.
The dentist will then take impressions of your teeth, which are used to design your treatment using 3D computer imaging technology. Once planning is complete, you will have the opportunity to view the expected outcome from different angles and approve the plan. Once approved, the entire sequence of aligners are manufactured in a computer aided process, and you will normally be issued with a sequence of three aligners every six weeks.
