What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a removeable dental appliance and is the invisible way to straighten teeth without fixed braces. It uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth, without the need for metal or wires.

How does it work?

Invisalign uses 3D imaging technology to depict the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position. From this, a series of custom-made, clear aligners are produced just for you.

Each aligner will move teeth incrementally and is worn for around two weeks, then replaced by the next in the series until the final position is achieved.

The benefits

A huge benefit that our customers here at Ace Dental love is that Invisalign is fully removable. Unlike fixed braces, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also brush and floss as normal to ensure you maintain good oral hygiene.

Invisalign is also one of the most comfortable removeable appliances available. There are no metal brackets or wires to cause mouth irritation and no metal or wires means you spend less time in our dental practice getting adjustments.

Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you even start treatment. This enables you so to see how your straight teeth will look when treatment is complete.

Invisalign history

In 1945, Dr. H.D. Kesling envisioned that modern technology would enable the use of a series of tooth positioners to produce the kinds of movement required for comprehensive dental treatment, usually only found with fixed appliances.

Technology has finally made this vision a reality with Invisalign removeable appliances in Camden. Using advanced computer technology Invisalign uses a series of customised clear aligners. The patient sequentially wears each aligner to produce extensive tooth movements in both upper and lower arches both quickly and easily.

Align Technology Inc is the company that manufactures Invisalign. It was founded in 1997. Since then, they have manufactured over 10,000,000 removable appliances and over four million patients have been treated.

If this sounds like just what you need, give us a call today and we can make your dental dreams a reality with Invisalign.
