The aim of any orthodontic treatment is to improve the position and/or alignment of the patient’s teeth and bite. Invisalign uses clear, plastic aligners to correct dental problems such as crooked, overlapped or gapped teeth. It is a popular alternative to traditional braces as Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, easy to wear and removable, meaning that you can eat and care for your teeth as normal, without having to factor in tricky brackets, wires and metal.

With traditional orthodontic braces, it is very difficult to see the results of your treatment until the braces are removed. With Invisalign, the aligners are removable, making it easy to view the progress of the realignment of your teeth. Each set of aligners gradually moves your teeth further into the desired position, and so you and your orthodontist will be able to closely monitor your results to ensure that they are as desired.

One of the most important thing to remember is that in order to see an awesome final result, you must make a commitment to wearing your aligners for the minimum recommended time of 22 hours per day. This should give you enough time to eat your meals, and perform your usual oral care regime several times per day. The success of your treatment relies on a disciplined approach to wearing the aligners for the allotted times, and sticking to the schedule, changing your aligners for the next stage at the correct times.

If you follow the treatment plan, you will be able to see your teeth starting to move into position as early as 6-8 weeks after you start wearing Invisalign aligners. Independent reviewers report that 88% of patients are happy with their final result.
