Invisalign, as its name suggests, is a virtually invisible way to treat simple misalignment (crooked) of the teeth. This clever system features a series of clear, custom-made aligners, which gradually move crooked teeth to a more pleasing position. It can achieve great results if only a few of your teeth are out of place and you have only mild bite related problems.
Thanks to its hardly visible appearance, Invisalign is particularly suitable for adults and older teens who may feel self-conscious about wearing fixed braces. The aligners can also be taken out for teeth cleaning, eating whatever you fancy and for those special occasions when you want to look your best (but make sure you pop them straight back in afterwards!).
At The Smile Clinic in Colchester we offer free consultations to discuss your requirements and suitability for Invisalign. There are many benefits of using Invisalign braces including;
It may feel a little uncomfortable when you wear a fresh aligner, but this is normally just a feeling of pressure and a good sign your teeth are on the move.
Even though Invisalign aligners are fully removable, they should be worn for at least 22 hours a day to ensure the quickest, most effective results.
Don’t forget, you will need to wear a retainer following any kind of treatment with braces to keep those straighter teeth in line.
