This method uses a series of bespoke-made aligners made of a transparent thermoplastic material. Over time, the continual pressure from the aligners causes the teeth to move into a straighter position.
Invisalign® treatment begins with a thorough assessment of your condition. Using modern medical imaging technology and advanced software, your dentist will take a 3D scan of your teeth and jaw and create a tailor-made treatment plan for you.
The software will not only provide your dentist with the information they need to have your aligners produced, but you will also be able to view an image of what you can expect your teeth to look like when the treatment is complete.
Once your aligners are back from the Invisalign® laboratory, you will take them home and wear the first one 20-22 hours a day for two weeks. Once two weeks have passed, simply switch to the next aligner in the series to continue your treatment.
Patients can remove the aligners for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.
