What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a teeth straightening method which uses modern 3-D computer imaging technology to develop a series of invisible and custom made plastic aligners of a patient’s teeth and smile to develop a corrected and new smile design. Invisalign is an aesthetical and comfortable alternative to braces. There are no metal brackets, no wires and no bands required during your Invisalign treatment.
You simply put in a new set of aligners in your mouth over your teeth approximately every two weeks until your teeth are straightened and your Invisalign treatment is complete. Using Invisalign helps you achieve a straight smile without compromising your lifestyle activities including smiling. Want to know more? Book an initial appointment here.
Invisalign, often referred to as invisible braces is now a popular choice for straighter teeth compared to traditional braces or orthodontic treatment. Invisalign’s smooth, clear plastic material makes teeth straightening a more
convenient alternative for patients seeking a solution with minimal impact on their social or professional activities or lifestyle. Invisalign is so discreet that no one will notice.
Invisalign Braces and Benefits
Fast Treatment -In most cases Invisalign offers significantly faster results than traditional braces. While wearing braces can take up to 3 years to straighten teeth, Invisalign only takes up to 12 months to bring you a beautiful attractive smile, a confident smile, a straighter smile. It provides the same amazing results in less than half the time (depending on the complexity of your case).
More Comfortable – Where braces are irritating and uncomfortable, Invisalign work results in practically invisible, smooth and barely noticeable to wear aesthetic treatments in contrast to the traditional “metal mouth” metal braces. The smooth, soft plastic is gentle on sensitive areas of your mouth and they are designed to fit your teeth with little or no discomfort.
HOW INVISALIGN WORKS
Invisalign works by applying a small amount of force (i.e. active appliances) to gradually move your teeth into place rather than using the more intense pressure of braces. As your teeth move, you are given a new set of aligners to continue the process until the treatment is complete and you can enjoy your straight new smile.
Preview Your New Smile Due to the 3D modern technology, Invisalign also allows you to preview your new smile design before you commence treatment and allows patients to be engaged and make suggestions before your treatment begins.
Removable Eating, brushing and flossing is very difficult for people who have braces. You can’t eat certain foods because they damage your braces and food is harder to remove when brushing. With Invisalign, you can remove your aligners to eat your favourite foods and clean your teeth as you usually would. There is no restriction on the food you can eat, you don’t have to worry about having food particles stuck in your braces and cleaning your teeth doesn’t have to be frustrating.
