This pioneering orthodontic system offers a subtle way to straighten teeth by using clear, customised aligners. With no brackets or wires, they can be taken out for brushing your teeth and eating. Each aligner is slightly different so crowded, gappy or crooked can be increasingly moved to an improved position.
Steps for Treatment
- Impressions of your teeth and photos create a personalised plan in order to show how your teeth move following treatment.
- When your aligners have been produced in a laboratory, they will be fitted to you at the practice. You will then wear a different set every two weeks until the desired result is achieved.
Treatment times vary however the majority of patients are completed within 6-12 months. You have to ensure you wear the aligners for 22-24 hours per day to benefit from successful and speedy results. You will also need to wear a retainer following treatment to keep your newly aligned teeth straight.
