Clear Aligners / Invisalign / Clear Correct
Have you always wanted to straighten your teeth but didn't want to deal with braces? Does your child have an overcrowded mouth or a bite that needs correction? Do you have just 1 or 2 teeth that need straightening? How about a whole mouth full of teeth that need aligning? Invisalign can help in all these situations. Clear aligners are the virtually invisible, comfortable and convenient solution that will fit into your lifestyle and give you the smile you've always wanted.
Clear aligners are a series of clear plastic aligners which are worn over the teeth to straighten them. With clear aligner treatment we start with the end in mind by digitally planning the final position of the teeth before we begin. Computer software is then used to design a series of aligners to get you from where your teeth are to where you want them to be.
The best thing about clear aligners is that they are almost invisible. Your friends wont know you're wearing them. They are taken out to eat which means you can eat what you like. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is comfortable and because they are removable its easy to keep your teeth clean.
Clear aligners are suitable for both children and adults. They can be used to treat the vast majority of issues be it crowding, bite problems or misalignment.
Clear aligners are worn 22 hours per day. Treatment time ranges from 6 months to 24 months depending on the severity of the initial condition of the teeth. Invisalign is a great alternative to braces for those who want to avoid the appearance of braces.
