What Is Invisalign®?

Your confidence. Your outlook. Your life. And with Invisalign®, achieving the smile you always dreamed of doesn’t have to be a big deal. In fact, it barely has to impact your day-to-day life at all. Invisalign® straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position. Comfortable, clear and removable – Invisalign® transforms your smile without disrupting your life. Something that over 3 million people worldwide have already discovered.

How Does Invisalign® Work?

The Treatment Process

Before a treatment plan can be created, your Invisalign® Provider will take an impression of your teeth to check whether they can be straightened using the Invisalign® System. Once confirmed, a detailed treatment plan will then be developed using ClinCheck®, our virtual 3D treatment plan. ClinCheck shows the series of movements your teeth are projected to go through over the course of the treatment – so you can see how your teeth are expected to look at the end of your Invisalign® treatment before it even begins.

When you begin your Invisalign® treatment, you will wear each set of custom-made aligners in two-week increments. As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth will begin moving, little by little, gradually moving towards the projected final position. During this time you will have occasional check-ups with your Invisalign® Provider in order to monitor your progress and ensure you are comfortable with the treatment

The time it takes to complete the treatment varies from person to person, depending on the complexity of each straightening issue. It is important to speak with your Invisalign® Provider to determine how Invisalign® best suits your situation and goals, and to agree the best way forward for you.
