Invisalign braces are made of tough, clear, polyurethane plastic. The aligners are made in a lab using a three-dimensional computerised model of your teeth. This clear brace functions just like the metallic bracket and wire system, yet are far subtler in appearance.
Our orthodontic team recommends Invisalign – clear/invisible braces for patients of Liverpool and Ormskirk who have happy teeth, bite problems, misalignment and overcrowding.
They work in a series of trays that gradually shift your teeth into place. Each tray is manufactured so that the teeth are slightly straighter than the previous tray. They are comfortable, easy to remove and very discreet. Straighten your teeth in secret!
Invisalign or clear braces treatment moves your teeth by applying gentle, constant force, but some people do feel temporary discomfort for the first few days of wearing a new set of aligners. Typically, people describe it as feeling “pressure” and it’s normal — it’s a sign your Invisalign clear aligners are working and transforming your smile.
If you would like to enjoy straighter teeth, our team will be happy to speak to you in more detail about the benefits of orthodontic treatment and whether this is the right brace for you.
