Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements Dr.MacLean has planned out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach to your teeth and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every ten days, until your treatment is complete. You will achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won't even know you're straightening your teeth.
Treatment times and costs vary depending on the complexity of the case. Some treatment times are as little as three months while others could last up to three years. Due to the advancements in orthodontic techniques most cases are completed within 18 months. No matter which way the orthodontic treatment is completed, traditional/clear braces, or Invisalign®, it is very important that a retainer is worn once treatment has been completed. Without the retainer the dentition will revert back towards their original state.
