Often referred to as invisible braces, Invisalign has revolutionised the orthodontic treatment industry. Here at Scott Smith Orthodontics, we recommend Invisalign treatment to many of our patients for the great results it can achieve.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment method that uses clear, plastic aligners to move your teeth into position. There are no brackets, archwires or elastic bands - just two removable aligners which look like thin sports mouth guards. These are custom-made to fit over your top and bottom teeth.
How does Invisalign work?
If you have Invisalign treatment, you will need to change your aligners periodically every 7-10 days as directed by Dental Monitoring app. This is to help encourage your teeth to move into position. Each set of aligners is custom-made but subtly different to help straighten your teeth.
Invisalign also works in conjunction with dental monitoring, the latest technology that makes having orthodontic treatment so easy. Simply download the app to your smartphone, upload photos of your teeth as per your orthodontist's instructions and we'll monitor your treatment progress. There's no need for you to book regular appointments to come in and see us! Find out more on our dental monitoring page.
