Invisalign®

Invisalign® uses a series of removable aligners to gradually move your teeth into a straighter position. These aligners are made from a clear plastic material, so they are virtually invisible when you’re wearing them. Each week, or as directed you will change to a new set of aligners which builds on the work of the previous set. Aligners are removable so you can still eat and drink all the foods you enjoy, and allow you to brush your teeth normally, making it easier to maintain good oral hygiene.

Each Invisalign® treatment is customised to your individual needs and the time treatment takes depends on your own orthodontic problem. Invisalign® is a highly successful treatment which has been used by millions of people around the world. Always make sure you choose a dentist with experience in providing Invisalign® like our team at Bracken Barrett.
