Invisalign is an effective teeth straightening treatment that provides an aesthetically-pleasing discrete alternative to fixed braces. One of our most popular systems for adult patients, because it is so easy to use and the aligners are virtually invisible. This is often a favourable option for adults who have professional careers and don’t feel comfortable wearing unsightly ‘train track’ braces for months on end. The technology behind invisible orthodontics is highly advanced and may give some patients a much shorter treatment time, depending on their individual cases. You can also enjoy the flexibility of your braces being hidden from an untrained eye, making you feel less self-conscious when socialising or speaking in public. With removable devices you can also take them out to eat or for special occasions, so they fit around your lifestyle.
The clear acrylic aligners are created using a state-of-the-art 3D computer imaging system, and they simply fit over the teeth, gradually moving and straightening them, with each aligner being removable, light and comfortable. As they are removable you are able to eat and drink whatever you wish then clean your teeth easily during treatment. The best thing is that nobody else will even notice you are wearing them. It is important to remember that straighter teeth are healthier teeth. When your bite is properly aligned and your teeth are straightened, there are less gaps and areas for food to get trapped and plaque to build up on the teeth, causing decay. In that sense, invisible orthodontics is a long-term investment in your oral health.
