Have you heard about the Invisalign teeth realignment programme? It’s a brilliant solution for anyone who wants to improve the look of their smile but doesn’t want to commit to traditional braces.

Can we introduce you to Invisalign?

What is Invisalign?

The Invisalign system works using a series of clear plastic retainers. They’re comfortable and easy to wear, and most people won’t even notice you have a brace.

At the beginning of your treatment, your dentist will take an imprint of your teeth. This impression will be used to create a personalised retainer, and you’ll receive a new one every two weeks. Each retainer will be a slightly different shape, and together they’ll gently encourage your teeth into a more favourable position.

What are the benefits?

There are so many benefits to Invisalign! Best of all, they’re effective but it won’t feel like you’re wearing a brace at all.

They can also be taken out for eating, drinking, teeth brushing and contact sports. Some people also like to take them out for special occasions, though the more you wear them, the faster the results.

Many people find Invisalign a lot more comfortable to wear than traditional braces. You won’t even have to have regular dental appointments to tighten your brace, as you simply switch out the retainer every two weeks.

Who will it work for?

Invisalign is a versatile treatment programme that suits a wide range of people. It’s great for adults who are considering teeth realignment treatment for the first time. There’s also an Invisalign Teen programme for younger patients, and Invisalign Lite for adults who’ve previously had teeth realignment treatment and want a refresher.
