Invisalign is the ground-breaking brace that’s responsible for straightening over 5 million smiles. When it launched in 2000, it turned orthodontics on its head and completely transformed the way we move teeth.
No uncomfortable wires mean more comfortable treatment - you can eat your food comfortably, and speak better as wires don't get in your way. And if you have an important interview or presentation you need to make, you always have the option of removing your braces and putting them back in afterwards.
Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, invisalign® uses your dentist’s instructions to create a series of custom made removable mouth trays (aligners). These aligners apply a controlled amount of force to your teeth, causing them to move. Each aligner is slightly different, moving your teeth gradually into the desired position.
Invisalign® only works while you wear the aligners. We recommend they are worn full time day and night (min 22–24 hours).
Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks, (before moving onto the next in the series), moving your teeth millimetre by millimetre, week by week, until you reach your desired result.
Treatment length will vary depending on your case, but the average invisalign® treatment is nine to eighteen months.
During treatment you should visit us periodically, until it is determined that your treatment is complete.
Once active treatment is complete, there may be some fine tuning to create that perfect smile.
Our Invisalign dentists have helped hundreds of happy patients smile more using Invisalign®.
