The Invisalign system is a process of straightening your teeth, giving you the smile you have always wanted in a painless and virtually invisible way.
The process involves taking impressions of your mouth, photos of your face and teeth and some x rays. All this information is sent to Invisalign and a treatment plan is formulated. This can be seen using special 3D software so you see what your teeth look like at the beginning of treatment and also at the end of treatment.
If you like the way your teeth will look at the end of the proposed Invisalign treatment, then a series of clear aligners are made which move your teeth into the desired final position.
The Invisalign aligners are practically invisible and made of a thermoplastic material uniquely developed for Invisalign. These aligners look similar to tooth whitening trays. They are designed to be worn for at least 22 hours of the day. They are removable and are taken out when eating, drinking any hot drinks or cleaning teeth. The fact they are removable allows, for an excellent level of oral hygiene and fresh breath.
Treatment length will vary depending on your teeth but the average time is between 9 and 18 months.
