Invisalign and Clear Braces are virtually invisible braces for correcting crooked teeth.
Firstly, a preliminary impression is taken then a second impression is taken with a fine material. This gives a very accurate final impression. A 'study model' is made from the impression. A number of other models are made which represent the teeth moving into position.
From these a set of clear aligners are produced each one designed to move the teeth by a tiny amount. The aligners are used in sequence and the teeth are gently moved into position.
Clear Braces - End of Treatment
After clear orthodontic treatment, teeth can return to their natural position. Retention is required to stabilise a fixed outcome. A bonded wire retainer will hold your teeth in place permanently. A wire is bonded to the back of the front lower or upper teeth and a bonding material is cured with a bright light.
Alternatively, a custom made vacuum formed retainer can be produced. This will keep the teeth in the desired position.
