Invisalign by Phil Barton
Nearly Invisible Teeth Straightening Treatment
Nothing is as important as a genuine and heartfelt smile, whether in your professional life or when you are out socialising. If you have ever thought about how improving your smile could help you to feel more confident, Invisalign might help you.
With the Invisalign system you can have the smile you have always wanted without traditional fixed metal braces. Invisalign uses a series of custom-made nearly invisible aligners. It has been proven effective in both clinical research and practices nationwide.
So whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart, or have shifted since wearing traditional braces, you will have a new reason to smile.
How does Invisalign work?
After a FREE CONSULTATION, your dentist will decide if Invisalign is right for you. Your dentist will then write a treatment plan and take impressions of your teeth, which are submitted to Invisalign. Using the latest in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign carefully translates your dentist’s instructions into a series of precisely customised aligners. You then wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, moving your teeth, gradually – week by week, millimetre by millimetre – until you have achieved the intended result. At the end of treatment you will be provided with a retainer to maintain the position of your new smile.
Is Invisalign painful?
Because there are no metal wires and brackets, Invisalign is comfortable. And because it is removable, eating, brushing and flossing are no problem. You can still enjoy your favourite foods and smile without holding back.
How long does it take?
Invisalign only works while you are wearing your aligners and it is recommended that you wear your aligners full-time except to eat, brush and floss. The duration of treatment depends on the severity of your case, which determines the number of aligners you need. However the average is between 9 and 18 months.
