Invisalign® is a custom-fitted, clear plastic-like tray designed to straighten your teeth and achieve that gorgeous smile you’ve always wanted. A series of custom aligner trays are manufactured to facilitate tooth movement in small increments. Unlike traditional braces, these trays can be removed to eat and brush and floss your teeth. In order for treatment to be carried out in a timely manner, 23 hours of tray wear per day is required. This allows the treatment to progress and tooth movement to occur.
Depending on the type of tooth movement needed to create your gorgeous smile, attachments may need to be placed on your teeth. Attachments are raised, tooth-coloured square, rectangular or triangular ridges that allow the tray to grab onto the tooth to achieve the desired tooth movement.
Invisalign is an alternative treatment option to braces, but it may not be suitable for everyone. During your initial assessment, we can determine whether this type of treatment is right for you.
