What is Invisalign®?
Forget metal braces and all that embarrassment of not being able to smile freely. Why not seek for a modern and embarrassment-free Invisalign® treatment, which consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every two weeks for the next set of aligners.
Invisalign® treats a variety of orthodontic concerns, including teeth which are crooked, crowded or with gaps – but because it is clear, removable and comfortable, it won’t interfere with your life. With no metal or sharp edges, Invisalign® is comfortable to wear and does not cause allergies.
Invisalign® also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan (ClinCheck© treatment plan) when you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look. It has been proven effective in clinical research and in dental practices throughout America and the United Kingdom.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
- You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
- As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position your orthodontist or dentist has prescribed.
- You’ll visit your dentist about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
- Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
