What is the Invisalign system?
The Invisalign aligner system straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner approximately every week, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position.
By using Invisalign clear aligners, achieving the smile you always dreamed of doesn’t have to be a big deal. The traditional route to correcting issues such as crooked teeth, gaps and crowded mouths has long been visible braces. However, the Invisalign system uses no brackets or wires - is it clear, removable and comfortable, so it won’t interfere with your appearance or your life.
We know that a straight smile often means a healthy smile. Not only will Invisalign clear dental aligners for adults straighten your teeth, they will also improve your overall dental health at the same time!
How does the Invisalign system work?
Improved bite and comfort
Teeth and jaws that are not properly aligned can cause improper bites, which can lead to increased wear on the tooth enamel and painful trauma to the supporting bone and jaw joints. Invisalign clear aligners are an alternative to a traditional dental braces and can effectively address these orthodontic issues.
Improved oral health
The metal wires and brackets of traditional fixed braces often trap food, which can lead to a build of up plaque and tooth decay. As Invisalign clear aligners are made of plastic and are removable, you can continue to brush and floss as you normally would to maintain good oral hygiene. And because straighter teeth are less susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease, investing in a straighter smile now may even minimise the need for costly dental work in the future.
Healthier teeth and gums
Crowded teeth can result in swollen, red gums, which is a sign of periodontal disease. When teeth are properly aligned, the gums fit securely around the teeth, allowing for a strong defence against periodontal problems. Once treatment has completed and Invisalign clear aligners have straightened your teeth, you may find improvements in your overall gum health.
Moving even when you’re not
As the Invisalign system discreetly does its work, life can continue as normal. Invisalign clear aligners are trimmed to your exact gum line so you can comfortably wear your aligners for the recommended 22 hours a day with little disruption. Even when you’re not moving, your teeth will be.
Big changes from small movements
After starting your treatment, it won’t take long until you notice a big difference in your smile. Your Invisalign clear aligners are custom-made with proprietary SmartTrack material. They fit snugly over your teeth and are clinically proven to improve control of movement, gently moving your teeth and even rotating them when needed.
Don’t let anything get in your way
Invisalign clear aligners are removable, so you can continue to do all the things you normally do, from brushing and flossing to eating whatever you like. And because they are nearly invisible, people are more likely to notice your changing smile than the aligners themselves.
