Invisalign – innovative braces which are virtually invisible
Invisalign is a revolutionary new way of straightening teeth without using wires or brackets. At Bishops Stortford Orthodontics, we are Diamond Invisalign providers.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign uses a series of clear, plastic, removable aligners which are custom-made for your teeth using 3D computer imaging. The aligners, which look like thin sports mouthguards, fit snugly over your teeth but can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing. Every two weeks, you’ll need to change your set of aligners. This is because each set is slightly different and builds on the work of the previous set to gradually move your teeth into the desired position.
Invisalign is fast becoming a treatment of choice for both orthodontists and patients. Not only is it an effective method of treatment, but it can be used to treat a range of common orthodontic problems such as crowding of teeth, spaces between teeth and problems associated with your bite.
What’s more, Invisalign aligners enable us to treat minor problems and achieve straighter teeth for our patients in as little as three months, making the treatment an ideal solution for business professionals and patients with custom-facing jobs.
Invisalign is also suitable for teens and, not surprisingly, it’s a popular treatment option. What teenager wouldn’t want to have a virtually invisible orthodontic appliance. Invisalign’s aligners can be customised to our teen patients’ teeth and jaws to ensure a comfortable fit and that all important beautiful result.
