For discreet straightening
Invisalign® is a discreet orthodontic method featuring clear, customised aligners. Gentle pressure moves teeth to an improved position. Clear braces are a particularly adult-friendly way to correct misalignment as they are virtually invisible when fitted over the teeth.
Made using advanced 3D technology, impressions and images taken of your teeth form the starting point to create a series of custom-made aligners. Each aligner is very slightly different. After using one aligner for a few weeks you move on to the next one in the series. Of course, your dentist will be checking progress at agreed intervals.
As you can take out Invisalign aligners, you can eat whatever you choose and clean your teeth normally. You can also remove them for any occasion you want to attend ‘aligner-free’.
Invisalign is a particularly popular choice for teens and adults involved in sports, music or performing. because you can take them out. For best results, however, wear the aligners 22 hours a day. Invisalign aligners for teens now have blue indicators, so it’s easy to check for wear.
