Invisalign therapy straightens teeth with a series of clear, plastic aligners. Patients like Invisalign because it’s pretty much invisible, and cleaning your teeth is very easy with this treatment.
Invisalign can create amazing smiles.
Dr Perry will design your new smile, taking into account your smile requirements, goals and biology.
How Invisalign works
Invisalign works through a set of clear plastic aligners.
The aligners are custom made for each patient from a digital scan of the teeth and gums.
Dr Perry will design a treatment plan using aligners to move the teeth into the correct position.
As part of your treatment, small attachments are placed onto the teeth, these allow the aligner to better grip your teeth, helping them move.
These attachments might need to be repositioned at certain points during treatment. Attachments are removed at the end of treatment.
You will also need scans taken at certain points of your treatment to help Dr Perry refine your smile.
At the end of treatment, patients will be fitted with a bonded retainer to keep the teeth in their new position, and provided with removable retainers that are worn at night.
Dr Perry likes to give his patients 2 years of follow up care.
