STRAIGHTER TEETH WITHOUT THE METAL.
Want straighter teeth without metal braces? Introducing Invisalign®, the latest in orthodontic technology. Invisalign® treatment uses clear, custom-fitted aligners to gently move your teeth to a straight position. Not only will you end up with a straight smile after treatment, but you also won’t look awkward along the way. Invisalign® is only noticeable on close examination of the teeth, so it won’t make you feel self-conscious. Since Invisalign® trays are removable, you’ll be able to clean your teeth as usual and eat what you like throughout the course of your treatment. Invisalign braces are also far cheaper and far less time consuming than metal braces.
The Invisalign treatment starts with the dental professional scanning both your mouth and your teeth in order to produce an accurate image of both to work from. They will then be able to show you an exact representation of what your smile will look like after the treatment. This allows you to make a well-informed decision before you even start the process. The Invisalign dentist can also produce a map of the changes your mouth and smile will go through along the way to reach that final destination. Every single shift in your teeth is planned before you even start the treatment, giving you peace of mind.
Invisalign uses a 3D printer to create a unique and individual initial mould for your teeth, with precision trimming along the edges to avoid cut gums and discomfort. Invisalign also boasts enhanced flexibility, comfort, a perfect fit, SmartTrack material, biomechanical engineering, and accurate movements. Your dentist will then update you with a brand new Invisalign set every two weeks to keep your teeth moving that little bit closer to their final goal.
You may experience discomfort each time you insert a new aligner as your teeth shift again. Sometimes, invisible fasteners will also be attached to your teeth in order to make it easier to insert the aligners, but these are then removed at the end of the treatment. Invisalign treatments can last as little as three months, which offers a far speedier treatment than metal braces, as well as added comfort benefits.
Your aligners should ideally be in your mouth for 20-22 hours each day, only removing them during meal times. However, Invisalign aligners are almost completely invisible, meaning you can go about your life as normal. Invisible orthodontics, you can’t go wrong! After a few days, they should not even affect the way you speak, as your mouth grows used to them.
