Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth, without metal or wires. The aligners are made of clear, strong medical grade plastic that is virtually invisible when worn. This allows you to straighten your teeth without people noticing. Invisalign uses 3-D computer imaging technology to depict the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position from which a series of custom-made, clear aligners are produced. Each aligner moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about two weeks, then replaced by the next in the series until the final position is achieved. On the day they are fitted the first step is to place some small tooth coloured attachments on the teeth. These are not required on all patients but are to help with some specific movements of teeth such as extrusion or rotation. Once the prescribed attachments are fitted the first aligner is snapped into position and instructions are given on fitting and removing the aligners. Each aligner is worn as close to 24/7 as possible for two weeks. Three aligners are supplied at each six weekly visit so that treatment can progress smoothly. Invisalign allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
