Invisalign® can help to treat a variety of orthodontic concerns including teeth which are crooked, crowded or with gaps - but because it is clear, removable and comfortable, it won’t interfere with your life.
Your treatment is nearly invisible, almost no-one can tell you are wearing Invisalign®. You can smile more during as well as after your treatment and because you can remove Invisalign® you can eat and drink what you like. Studies have shown that it can be better for your dental hygiene during treatment as well. With no metal or sharp edges, Invisalign® is comfortable to wear and does not cause allergies.
So far over 480, 000 patients worldwide have more reasons to smile - thanks to Invisalign®. Clear, removable, comfortable.
Your treatment with Invisalign®
Invisalign® treatment starts with a visit to your doctor, who will examine you and develop a computer model of your treatment.
Together with your doctor you can review and agree on your treatment before we make a series of aligners that will fit only you. Each aligner is slightly different, moving your teeth gradually into the desired position. You wear each aligner for two weeks, before moving on to the next in the series.
Treatment length will vary depending on your case, but the average Invisalign® treatment is twelve to eighteen months. During treatment you should visit your doctor periodically, until it is determinded that your treatment is complete. Then all that remains is to show off your beautiful new smile!
