How does Invisalign work?
A series of clear aligners are individually tailored and placed over the teeth. These are worn for 7-14 days and then, a new set of aligners are worn. It is this changing of aligners that helps encourage the teeth to be gently moved into their desired position.
The aligners are intended to be worn all day, and are only to be removed for eating, consuming hot or sweet things and of course, brushing your teeth!
The principle is the same as traditional wired-braces but without the visible changes that most patients are fearful of.
