Invisalign treatment uses a series of clear plastic, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. By combining 21st century orthodontic technology with precision and accuracy, our dentists can customise an invisalign treatment plan for you.
Invisalign clear aligners work by progressively moving your teeth into a more ideal and attractive position. Duration of treatment can vary depending on each unique case. Best of all, most people won’t be able to tell that you’re having treatment because of the virtually invisible plastic so you don’t have to worry about the look of metal braces on your teeth.
Usually, every one to two weeks you will need a new set of aligners that builds on the work of the previous set. At each appointment, you will receive sufficient aligners that last 8 to 10 weeks.
Each set of teeth comes with its own unique orthodontic problem to solve. For this reason, depending on the severity of the issue you could see results in as little as 12 weeks for minor issues, while more complex issues may take 12 to 18 months to correct.
Teens: Having braces can have a negative impact on a teen’s self-confidence. This is no longer an issue with Invisalign clear aligners. Instead, teens can now have treatment to straighten their teeth and achieve a beautiful smile without anyone knowing. Conveniently, they can also be removed during sporting activities as long as they are worn for at least 22 hours a day for optimal results.
Adults: Invisalign is a popular treatment among adult patients and for good reason. The virtually invisible aligners mean orthodontic treatment won’t impact a patient’s appearance, leaving them with renewed confidence that people won’t notice the aligners. This makes Invisalign a great teeth straightening method for those in client-facing professions. Another added benefit is that aligners can be removed for important business presentations or public speeches if necessary.
Moving teeth requires force, and one of the problems that can occur from this is ‘root resorption’. This condition refers to the breakdown of a tooth’s root and can lead to tooth loss. Considering the forces exerted by Invisalign are more gradual than those applied by traditional braces, early indications are that invisalign treatment exhibits a much lower rate of root resorption.
Unlike braces, Invisalign doesn’t use adhesive to bond brackets to teeth, therefore they are safer for the tooth’s enamel
Again, unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners have no metal brackets or wires to cause irritation to your mouth. This means they are extremely comfortable to wear. Additionally, no metal or wires means you won’t need as many appointments as there are fewer adjustments needed.
