If you have teeth that are crowded, too far apart or have moved since wearing conventional braces, Invisible Braces by Invisalign or Smilelign may be the answer for you.
Being nearly invisible, almost no one can tell you are wearing Invisalign or Smilelign braces, so you can smile more during as well as after your treatment. These braces are removable so that you can eat and drink what you like. Studies have shown that the invisible braces can be better for your dental hygiene during treatment. There are no metal or sharp edges with the invisible braces, and so are comfortable to wear and do not cause allergies.
The convenience and ease of use of invisible braces have made it the choice of over half a million dental patients, giving hundreds of thousands of people amazing new smiles.
How Long will it take Invisible Braces to Work?
Invisible braces only work while you wear the aligners. We recommend the invisible braces are worn full time day and night (min 22–24 hours).
Each invisible aligner is worn for 2-4 weeks, (before moving onto the next in the series), moving your teeth millimeter by millimeter, week by week, until you reach your desired result.
Treatment length varies depending on the individual case, however, the average treatment is nine to eighteen months. Regular dental visits are required during the treatment, until it is determined that your treatment is complete.
Advantages of Invisible Braces
In addition to the aesthetic and comfort advantages, invisible braces offer a number of significant clinical benefits including:
- Predictable treatment, invisible braces are planned in by your dentist and the dentist can more accurately predict when your treatment will be finished
- Improved periodontal health through better dental hygiene during treatment
- No metal brackets or wires
- Custom made dental aligners means reduced irritation and fewer scratches
- Nearly Invisible
- Removable so you can eat, drink, brush and floss
