Invisalign clear aligners are a popular treatment, simply because they are so convenient and easy to use. They are an almost invisible appliance, which is ideal for those who are in the public eye or who simply want to smile without worrying about their braces showing.
Worn by over 5 million people around the world, Invisalign comes as series of clear aligners that are custom-made to your individual smile for optimum comfort. Each aligner is worn for 1-2 weeks before being replaced by the next in the series - gradually moving your teeth towards their projected final position within as little as six months.
Unlike fixed braces, there are no metal wires or brackets. This means they are virtually invisible when you wear them. Also, Invisalign aligners can be removed briefly for you to eat, brush your teeth and attend special occassions.
Custom-made to move your teeth little by little, Invisalign works accurately, gently and efficiently:
Accurate - with Invisalign treatment, your teeth are straightened using a pair of transparent aligners which are custom-moulded to the exact shape of your teeth using 3D computer imaging.
Gentle - every fortnight the aligners are replaced by the next pair in the series so that your teeth are gradually moving and straightening without pain or discomfort.
Efficient - the use of aligners exerts a controlled force on the teeth at different stages in the process, which means that only certain teeth will be allowed to move quickly and efficiently.
Invisalign is made to move all sorts of smiles. In the hands of our experienced Specialist Orthodontist (Dr Mike Dixon) it is used to transform the smiles of our valued patients when they have treat mild to moderate teeth straightening issues.
