Are your teeth slightly crooked or misaligned? Do you have unwanted gaps between your teeth? For many years fixed wire braces have successfully been used to realign teeth.
Over 80% of people with crooked teeth would like a perfectly-aligned straighter smile, but are not willing to wear highly-visible metal braces. With the latest advances in modern dentistry invisible braces are now available to reshape your smile.
What is an Invisible Brace? Can I see them?
Invisalign braces consist of a series of clear transparent aligners that you wear throughout the day. The aligners are changed every ten days or two weeks and gradually moving your teeth millimeter by millimeter, week by week, until you reach your desired result.
These aligners are virtually invisible to anyone unless they get very close to you, so hardly anyone will notice that you are having treatment. This makes it ideal for adults and teenagers who don’t want any orthodontic treatment to be noticeable.
Invisalign can be used to treat a variety of dental problems such as crowding (when teeth are too close together); closing gaps between teeth, realigning front teeth that stick out too far or simply adjusting the alignment of a single twisted tooth.
These braces are removable so that you can eat and drink what you like. There is very little disruption to your normal daily routines.
The 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.
