“Invisible” braces in London
Naturally, the first image that comes to mind when hearing the word “braces” is metal brackets on teeth (or “train tracks”); fortunately, orthodontics has evolved to allow for many new aesthetic options.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign consist of a sequence of custom-made clear, removable aligners that are changed under the guidance of an orthodontist.
These clear retainers gradually move the teeth into the desired position and real change can be seen in a matter of months.
Invisalign aligners hardly affect speech and are taken out for short periods of time when cleaning teeth or eating.
See clear aligner results at the start
During your consultation, x-rays, photos and a digital scan (or a dental impression) will be taken of your teeth to create a clear picture of how the teeth are now.
It is then possible to use software to show the path of the realignment, to see how each aligner will move your teeth and the final outcome, all before it even starts.
