Invisalign is a hugely popular teeth-straightening system, designed to achieve quick results safely and discreetly. It consists of several clear, custom-made aligners that are fitted to your teeth to act like transparent gum protectors. Frequent appointments allow us to monitor the treatment and replace the aligners as the patient’s mouth changes shape. In this way, Invisalign is just as effective as more traditional braces but offer a more aesthetically pleasing appearance to the patient while the process is underway.
Invisalign is flexible, meaning that it can be used to realign just a few teeth or to work on the full arch of your mouth. The system is painless, straightforward to fit and easy to clean so you can maintain excellent oral hygiene from the start. Treatment can vary between six months and two years. Results are permanent, provided that you take good care of your teeth and mouth during and after treatment. Some patients find that speech and/or saliva can be affected at first, while they get used to the sensation of having the system in their mouth, but this should settle fairly quickly
