Invisalign aligners are removable and virtually invisible, so you can eat and drink normally, clean your teeth easily, and no-one need know you’re having treatment. By using Invisalign you can transform your smile without it affecting your day to day life.
Patients love Invisalign because the aligners are comfortable, removable and clear. The clear aligner is similar to a mouthguard and is excellent at straightening crooked, gappy or even overlapping teeth. The aligners are clear, wafer thin and made of a transparent medical grade plastic. They are designed so that you wear each positioner for approximately two weeks. They gently and gradually move your teeth from their present position to the desired position.
The treatment consists of a series of clear aligners, created with 3D computer imaging. The aligners are changed every two weeks, and gradually move your teeth into the right position. You can view your own ‘virtual treatment’ plan to see in advance what your new smile will look like.
We’ll make a great first impression
To help create a perfect impression of your teet we are proud owners of an iTero® Element™ Intraoral Scanner. The iTero Element Scanner is a state-of-the-art digital impression system that eliminates the need for messy putty in your mouth.
With our iTero Element Scanner, we can digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is this process far more comfortable than the old putty based impressions, but it’s faster and can offer a superior clinical endpoint.
- No goop or gag to worry about
- Fast, accurate impression
- See a simulation of your potential
During the impression process, you can breathe or swallow as you normally would. You can even pause during the process if you need to sneeze or just want to ask a question. The scanner gives us a 3D model of your mouth to show you what your new smile might look like.
