Benefits of Invisalign

  • Virtually invisible– No one will even know you are wearing it.
  • Removable – You can eat, drink, brush and floss normally during treatment.
  • Comfortable– No metal brackets or wires, means reduced mouth irritation and pain.
  • See your future smile before treatment – Using the latest computer technology you can view how your teeth will look, before you even commence treatment.

Unlike braces, Invisalign aligners can be taken out. This allows users to eat and brush their teeth as usual. Invisalign is natural and gentle on your teeth and gums. Unlike veneers and other ‘cosmetic’ treatments.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign works by gently exerting pressure against the teeth. This will move them into place. For two weeks, you will need to wear the Invisalign aligners. We recommend you wear your aligner for around 22 hours a day. Do this everyday of your treatment. This is for the treatment to achieve maximum success.

Each set of aligners are worn for two weeks. After this time, the teeth will have moved into their new positions. The next aligner tray will then be worn to move teeth to the next position. Over time, the Invisalign treatment will straighten the teeth. This is done until your smile reaches optimal function and appearance.

How long does Invisalign take to straighten the teeth?

The treatment length will depend on the severity of your case. Treatment can last anywhere from 6 months to 2-3 years. Most commonly patients will require Invisalign treatment for 12 months.

Teenagers and adults may be suitable for Invisalign. If your case is severe, Invisalign may not be appropriate for you.
