What are invisible aligners?
Invisible or clear aligners are custom made plastic trays that are designed to slide easily over your teeth. They work by placing slight pressure against the teeth to guide them into position. The aligners themselves are virtually invisible as they are clear and fit to the shape of your smile.
The clear aligner treatment requires a series of transparent removable plastic aligners that help straighten teeth without metal brackets or wires. The aligners are custom made to maximise comfort, with treatment lasting between 12-24 months depending on your current situation. It is encouraged that your aligners be worn as much as possible during the day.
The aligners can be removed when eating, drinking and flossing your teeth. Time frames between aligners can vary from two weeks per aligner to six or more weeks as your teeth shift into new positions.
