Invisalign is the bracket and wire-free method of tooth movement and dental realignment. A sequence of clear, lightweight mouthpieces are custom made to fit your teeth only, and are worn in succession to gradually move your teeth into correct and attractive alignment.
These “Clear Braces” are virtually invisible when inserted and are easily removed when you eat, drink (beverages other than water) or brush and floss after meals. Enjoy conveniences of:
- No rough wires or brackets irritating your mouth
- Freedom to eat whatever you want
- Shorter follow up visits
- Clear aligners that are hardly noticeable
What Orthodontic Problems Can Invisalign Correct?
The dental professionals at our Lansdown clinic are highly trained in clear aligner therapy. Invisalign is designed to correct almost any type of orthodontic problem without uncomfortable metal attachments and wires and allows you to go about your life without disruption or detection.
Treatment is usually completed in 18 to 20 months depending upon the type of misalignment, or malocclusion, and is typically less expensive than traditional orthodontic treatment.
Upon completion of orthodontic treatment, we recommend a dental cleaning and a subsequent appointment to provide you with a maintenance device, such as a Hawley retainer or a thin, clear acrylic splint to wear a few hours a day and at night to maintain the new positioning of your teeth and jaws.
