This orthodontic treatment technique uses almost invisible aligners to straighten crooked or gappy teeth. These clear aligners are a great option for adults and teenagers who may feel embarrassed about wearing noticeable metal braces. As they have no brackets or wires, the aligners are comfortable and can be taken out for short periods, meaning you can keep your teeth clean and eat whatever you choose.
The Invisalign® system uses 3D technology to take pictures and impressions of your teeth and record other information that enables a series of custom-made aligners to be produced. Each slightly different aligner is worn for around two weeks and gradually moves your teeth to a new position.
Usually the straightening process takes 6-12 months but you will have to wear a retainer after treatment to keep your teeth in their new position.
