What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an innovative teeth straightening treatment. As with traditional braces, the aim of Invisalign is to correct orthodontic problems by aligning the teeth and jaw. It consists of a series of transparent, customised, removable, plastic aligners, which help move your teeth into their correct position over a specific amount of time prescribed by your dentist.
As you progress through the treatment, the aligners will become tighter fitting, moving teeth into the required position to create a beautiful straight smile. Your dentist will provide a new set of aligners every two weeks or so. Invisalign invisible braces can be removed for up to two hours a day for eating, drinking or brushing your teeth. However, they must remain in place for at least 22 hours a day to successfully straighten your teeth.
Advantages of Invisalign
Unlike traditional braces that use metal wires to straighten your teeth, Invisalign aligners are made of smooth, comfortable plastic, which fits snugly over your teeth and gums. This way you are unlikely to experience any mouth trauma. Invisalign also allows for flexibility. Since the aligners can be taken out, you can remove them for a short period of time, allowing you to have control over your appearance. Moreover, Invisalign promotes good oral care, reducing the risk for gum disease and tooth decay. Last but not least, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, therefore few people will even realise you are undergoing teeth straightening treatment.
