Invisalign – virtually invisible braces with great results
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment method that uses a series of removable aligners to straighten your teeth. These aligners are made from a clear, plastic material which makes them virtually invisible to others around you.
How does Invisalign work?
An average course of Invisalign treatment takes about 12 months. Throughout the course of treatment, you’ll be required to change your aligners approximately every two weeks. You’ll also see our orthodontist here at Allstar Orthodontics every eight weeks for adjustments and to check progress.
By changing your custom-moulded aligners every fortnight, your teeth are being encouraged to move into a straighter position, helping to improve your smile. The total number of aligners is specific to you and is determined by us for your course of treatment.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
One of the benefits of Invisalign is that the aligners used are virtually invisible. Wery few people may notice you’re wearing them at all – unless you tell them of course.
Invisalign aligners are also comfortable to wear and can be easily removed when you eat, brush and floss. This makes them a hygienic orthodontic treatment option.
Invisalign aligners are a registered medical device, you should always read and follow the label and the instructions of your treating orthodontist.
Top five Invisalign tips
To help get the most out of your Invisalign treatment, we recommend the following tips:
- Wear your aligners 20-22 hours per day.
- After eating, put your aligners back in straight away.
- You only need to brush your teeth twice a day, not after every meal.
- Keep all of your aligners, even when you have finished wearing them.
- Enjoy your treatment – it’s the best way to have a great smile!
