Invisalign braces are an innovative type of brace that are clear, comfortable and convenient. They are also known as ‘invisible’ braces. This minimalist brace is produced from a transparent material which means that it is virtually undetectable to the naked eye.
An Invisalign brace is comprised of a set of custom made aligners which are designed to your requirements. This set is changed every two weeks to facilitate the movement of your teeth.
Birmingham Braces offers this highly popular form of treatment to correct all forms of dental irregularities. These include the following conditions:
- Malocclusion (‘bite’ problems)
- Misaligned teeth
- Missing teeth
- Misaligned jaw position
- Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD)
- Overbite (upper teeth overlap the lower teeth)
- Underbite (lower teeth protrude over the upper teeth)
- Crowded teeth
- Crooked teeth
Invisalign is suitable for most orthodontic cases but is not recommended for severe cases where a great deal of movement is needed or tooth extraction is necessary.
We use computerised technology and 3D modelling to fabricate a brace that fits perfectly and moves your teeth into the optimum position.
The benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign confers the following benefits:
- Clear: the Invisalign brace is made from clear plastic and is extremely discreet.
- Comfortable: the vast majority of our patients find the Invisalign brace comfortable to wear.
- Convenient: the Invisalign brace can be removed when eating or drinking. This equally applies to brushing and flossing the teeth.
The Invisalign system @ Birmingham Braces
This system requires you to wear the brace for a maximum of 22 hours a day. The only time it is removed is for eating, drinking and cleaning your teeth.
Your teeth will slowly move over time so this brace will be replaced with a new one every two weeks. This process is repeated over a set period of time.
Treatment can last from a minimum of 6 months up to a maximum of eighteen months. In that time you will attend regular check ups with your orthodontist every 6 weeks or so to monitor your progress.
We also offer Invisalign Express for those patients who need minor corrections only.
