Have you always thought about orthodontic treatment to straighten your crooked teeth but have been scared off by the prospect of a mouth full of metal braces? Well, worry no more! With Invisalign, you can wave goodbye to everything you think you know about orthodontic treatment and say hello to a beautifully straight smile in the easiest way possible.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign works by using a series of clear aligners that are completely removable and practically invisible. Quite simply, we will provide you with a batch of aligners that are specifically for you. Just wear each aligner for two weeks before replacing it for the next one in the sequence. In this way, we can gradually move the teeth into their desired position.
We recommend wearing Invisalign aligners for 22 hours per day, removing them only for eating and cleaning. However, we do know that there may be occasions where you’d rather not wear your aligners – such as a big night out, or an important work presentation. That’s the beauty of Invisalign, you can easily take them out for these moments if you feel the need!
Treatment time with Invisalign varies according to each individual patient and their own exacting needs. The more complex cases take 12-18 months, while those who require just a few simple tweaks can take as little as 6 months.
