What is Invisalign?

Invisalign, the clear alternative to braces.

Invisalign is a product which straightens your teeth using nearly invisible, custom made, removable aligners to improve your smile.

It was created for adults who wish to straighten their teeth but who wouldn’t consider traditional fixed braces.

Whilst obviously it is not completely invisible, it is, the brand which has commonly become known by the public as the ‘Invisible brace’.

Invisalign is an aligner based system.

Example of an Invisalign aligner

An aligner is basically a clear strip of plastic which covers the teeth, similar to a bleaching tray or night guard but much thinner and made of stronger more rigid material.

“In my opinion Invisalign aligners are by far the best on the market and have been for some time. Cosmetically no other aligner I’ve seen looks as discrete and natural as Invisalign aligners do. As a company, Invisalign also has huge amounts of research, development and technology behind the brand’.” Dr Ricky Adams B.D.S.

 

 

 

The most common question I get at this point of explaining Invisalign to a patient, friend or family, is; but how can something so small and thin straighten my teeth?
