Get a Beautiful, Straight Smile with Invisalign
Want to straighten your smile without unsightly metal braces? Invisalign may be the perfect answer for you.
Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners that behave like clear braces to straighten crooked teeth in no time at all. You’ll get the benefits of braces, without the pain, or metal mouth nicknames.
This can be a particularly appealing option for adults, who have made the decision to straighten their teeth later in life, but are worried about the appearance of traditional braces. Read on to see how Invisalign works, and the advantages of this treatment option.
What to Expect from Your Invisalign Treatment
The course of treatment involves changing aligners every two weeks, moving your teeth into straighter position step by step, until you have a more beautiful smile.
The average course of an Invisalign treatment is about a year. We ask that our patients visit us every 6 to 8 weeks for regular adjustments and to check on their progress. We’ll also provide a new set of custom-moulded clear aligners, depending on however many you need.
The Benefits of Choosing Invisalign Over Traditional Braces
- A Virtually Invisible Alternative
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible so it’s difficult for others to notice the treatment. You’ll feel comfortable smiling and talking, even when you’re wearing your aligners.
- Less Pain, More Gain
Most patients may feel pressure in the early stage when starting with the first few Invisalign aligners. The metal on traditional braces has been known to cause more pain and irritation to the mouth than Invisalign, and can even lead to painful mouth ulcers.
- Remove Them Whenever You Need To
Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing you to remove them when eating certain types of food that can be more difficult to eat – for example, nuts and apples. You can also remove them to easily brush and floss to maintain good oral hygiene.
- Less Trips to the Orthodontist
Approximately 6-8 weeks between orthodontist visits, as opposed to the more frequent 3-4 weeks between visits for traditional braces.
- See the Results Before You Even Start
Invisalign treatment allows you to visualise each stage of the treatment process, from the beginning to the end, giving you a clearer picture of the treatment duration. Traditional braces can only give you an estimate of the treatment’s duration at the beginning of the process.Invisalign uses 3D imaging technology to map out your treatment. We can run a simulation to show you how your teeth will look after a few months of treatment.
