Invisalign for Adults
Invisalign is the clear alternative to braces. Teeth can be straightened without bands, brackets or wires. Invisalign consists of a series of clear nearly invisible, custom made aligners to gradually move your teeth to the correct position. A new aligner is inserted every fortnight, as you replace each aligner, your teeth will move week by week until they have straightened to the final position. These aligners are removable for easy cleaning, and comfortable to wear.
Before commencing treatment with the invisalign aligners, a virtual treatment plan using ClinCheck software will show you a 3D model of your teeth with the series of movements your teeth will go through until completion. This allows you to see upfront what your teeth are expected to look like at the end of treatment.
Invisalign is the modern and hygienic way to straighten your teeth.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are comfortable, removable and nearly invisible. This means teenagers can undergo orthodontic treatment without having to worry about the metal wires of traditional braces, and because they are removable, teenagers can continue to brush and floss normally maintaining good oral hygiene.
Invisalign has several treatment options available for teenagers, depending on the stage of dental development, however some teenagers may be suitable for the same treatment as adults.
Invisalign Teen is designed with a few special features:
- Blue compliance-indicators fade from blue to clear to help your dental provider, you, and your teenager to gauge wear time.
- Special features are now designed for canines, second premolars and second and third molar teeth.
- Six free individual replacement aligners are included in case any get lost or misplaced.
