Orthodontics » Invisalign
Very few people have naturally straight teeth. For years, conventional braces were the only option. Invisalign is a revolutionary new way to straighten teeth without braces.
Invisalign uses a series of nearly undetectable aligners instead of brackets and wires. It's really hard for people to tell you're wearing braces even up close. You can get the smile you've always wanted without the braces you've always avoided.
Invisalign is comfortable as there are no metal wires or brackets and, being removable, eating, brushing, and flossing are not an issue.
Upon an initial examination, your orthodontist will decide if Invisalign is appropriate for you. Your orthodontist will write a treatment plan and take impressions of your teeth, which are submitted to Invisalign. Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign carefully translates your orthodontist's instructions into a series of precisely customised aligners. Each set of aligners are worn for approximately two weeks, this allows your teeth to move gradually - week by week, millimetre by millimetre - until the desired result is achieved. Generally, you visit your orthodontist no more often than you would with conventional braces and the length of treatment is approximately the same.
