This is an extremely popular system, originally from the USA. We are proud to offer the state of art Invisalign treatment at SmilleVille Orthodontics with nearly invisible braces for adults and teens to straighten their teeth.
Sometimes known as invisible braces, these clear aligners gently move the teeth into their desired position. Unlike standard braces, Invisalign is removable, meaning you can take it out to eat, drink and clean your teeth. It is virtually undetectable, which is what makes it so popular with adult and teenage patients who don’t want their treatment to be obvious to others.
Gone are fixed brackets and wires. Instead, the Invisalign brace uses a series of removable aligners to gradually and gently move your teeth into the desired position. Better still, the aligners are completely transparent, so they’re really inconspicuous – even up close.
Each aligner should be worn for two weeks, before you move onto the next one in the series: gradually moving your teeth little-by-little until they reach their final position. Along the way we'll keep a close eye on your progress to make sure everything is moving correctly and in the right direction
For the best results it’s important to wear your aligners for between 20 and 22 hours a day - just take them out for eating, drinking and to brush and floss your teeth. Luckily for you, this means you can continue to enjoy all your favourite foods throughout your treatment, as well as keep on top of your oral hygiene routine: ensuring a healthy, beautiful end result.
The Consultation - Once we have examined and gone through everything and confirmed you’re eligible for treatment, we will take photos, X-rays and digital scans, or a dental impression, of your teeth.
The Aligners - After being custom made you will receive a series of aligners to wear every day and change at home – on average every 1-2 weeks.
The Results - You will visit us around every 6-8 weeks to monitor progress and receive new aligners. After finishing your treatment plan, retainers will be required to maintain your new smile.
Up to 50% faster treatment times - With weekly aligner changes, you're on your way to the smile you want even faster.
Here are some of the problems we can treat using this multi-talented brace:
While Invisalign aligners aren’t invisible they’re very inconspicuous. In most cases you’ll be able to have conversations with friends and family without them even realising that you’re wearing your aligners.
You may have a slight lisp at first, but you’ll quickly get used to your aligners and should be talking clearly and confidently within a few days.
Invisalign aligners have been designed with your comfort in mind using ‘transparent polycrystalline alumina’ - a clear, smooth material that incidentally was designed by NASA. Invisalign also has the benefit of having no metal wires or brackets, which can sometimes cause discomfort at the beginning of treatment.
You need to wear your aligners for around 20 to 22 hours a day, but you can take them out for eating, drinking, brushing and contact sports.
