Invisalign® braces allow patients to gain the straight smile they have always wanted without any brackets or wiring in sight. No longer will wearing braces leave you feeling self-conscious about smiling!
Treatment is incredibly discreet, patients do not feel that they have to hide their teeth during treatment, and the aligners can be removed when eating and drinking – as such the transparent will hardly ever interfere with your day to day live. You can go to work, socialise with friends, etc. without the embarrassment of traditional metal wires and brackets.
Of course each patient will react to the treatment differently, some will experience more discomfort than others. And as is the case with most orthodontics treatments, there is usually a degree of discomfort associated with the shifted of teeth. However many patients only describe the discomfort of Invisalign® braces as mild. This mild discomfort being a sense of tenderness or pressure within the first few days of treatment only.
Dental visits are usually needed every few weeks in order to monitor the progress and continue with the next set of Invisalign® trays that will be given to you each time you visit for a check up.
Following your treatment you will need to wear retainers which look exactly like the invisible trays you were using before. For a period up to 6 months it is advised to wear them as long as possible during the day too, whereas later you just need to use them overnight to protect your new smile.
