What is Invisalign and how does it work?

This is a clear removable brace that gently applies force to the teeth to shift them into the correct position, this revolutionary orthodontic treatment is embraced by young adults all over the world, because of its almost completely invisible nature. They are a great option for getting your teeth straightened without anyone noticing.

After scanning your teeth with 3D imaging technology, a computer will be able to predict how your teeth will move over time. From these predictions clear aligners will be made to fit over your teeth and will be changed every 1-2 weeks in the comfort of your own home, as your teeth change their positions. You will need to check in with your dentist every 6-8 weeks to ensure that the Invisalign in St John’s Wood is still on track and to keep an eye on the position of your teeth.

Custom-made aligners are completely removable for eating and brushing your teeth, they fit into your lifestyle effortlessly and after a couple of days, you will barely even notice they are there. This treatment does not last as long as traditional braces so your smile could be straight in under a year, which not only suits adults with busy lifestyles. Invisalign has other systems which can also be used by teens and children too, making it an option for a family to have matching smiles.
