Aligner systems including Invisalign® have increased the treatment options available to patients. They represent a way to give you the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted using a technique which is nearly invisible.
Invisalign® works through using a series of clear aligners that fit over your teeth and means no one can tell you’re wearing them. Other advantages include that they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing your teeth is no problem at all. They are also more comfortable because there is no metal bracket to cause mouth abrasions during the treatment.
When using Invisalign®, we will create your own virtual treatment plan when you start, so you are able to see how straight your teeth will be when your treatment is complete.
It has become so popular that over 2.5 million people worldwide have straightened their teeth using the technique, with over 3000 orthodontists in America alone offering Invisalign® to their patients.
You should be aware however that aligners are not suitable for all cases and other techniques may be more appropriate. Your orthodontist will of course talk you through the various options available to you.
