The Invisalign treatment involves clear aligners. They are a sophisticated alternative to traditional metal braces. They are virtually invisible and enable you to straighten your teeth and smile without announcing it to the world."
Align Technology, Inc were the original inventors of clear aligner technology. They are continually investing in research and development to bring the best in clear aligner technology to you, the consumer.
The custom clear aligners are made from an elastic thermoplastic material that applies pressure to your teeth to precisely guide them into place.
Each aligner is made slightly different to the previous aligner. This difference results in pressure being applied at a specific point on the teeth which enables a specific and pre-planned movements of the teeth.
There are some tooth movements that are difficult to achieve due to the size,shape, or angle of a tooth. Sometimes extra force is required to achieve the movements required. This is where the use of "buttons" comes in. Putting a small tooth coloured "button" on the tooth allows for a little extra pressure to be applied to the tooth in a desired direction that would otherwise not be possible.

When you don't have enough room in your jaw for your teeth to fit normally, your teeth can bunch up, overlap and twist, sometimes getting pushed to the front or the back.
When you have extra space between two or more of your teeth, your doctor calls this spacing issues or gap teeth.
If your upper and lower teeth don't touch when your mouth is closed, your doctor calls this an open bite.
An overbite is when your upper front teeth overlap with your lower front teeth. Most people have at least a little overbite.
When you close your mouth and some of your upper teeth are sitting inside your lower teeth — rather than on the outside, like they normally would — your doctor calls this a crossbite.
An underbite is when you close your mouth and your lower front teeth are in front of your upper teeth. In many cases, this is actually a problem with your lower jaw being too far forward.

Why would you consider Invisalign clear aligners over braces?
Invisalign clear aligners enables you the ability to carry on everyday living with the least impact on your day to day happenings.
People around you need not even know you are straightening your teeth.
For more information see The Benefits of Invisalign clear aligners and 7 factors to consider when choosing Invisalign clear aligners or braces. Also read over the following:
Life is busy. We understand this. This is why we have available to us the "Dental Monitoring app" See these blog articles about dental technology. A dental solution for busy lifestyles and Dental Monitoring: this selfie technology.
If you can take a selfie, you can use this app.
This app allows us to assess how your aligners are tracking remotely."
We used Dental Monitoring to enable Rhiannon Iffland to use Invisalign clear aligners while she was overseas defending her Red Bull Womens Cliff Diving World Champion Title. See the interview where Rhiannon talks about how she fit Invisalign clear aligners into her busy work/life schedule using the Dental Monitoring app."
Brace Yourself Interview
You are choosing Invisalign clear aligners to fix crowded teeth. This involves moving teeth around into their correct position. Often this is a simple process.
However in some cases there is just not enough room to move the teeth into the arch and straighten them."
With traditional braces the space required was usually made by extracting teeth. This practice was very common a few years ago, not so common now but still prevalent in many areas."
It often resulted in too much space being created, therefore the teeth where all pulled back into alignment. This resulted in nice straight teeth, but a smaller arch."
The negative impact a smaller arch has on a person's airway, and subsequently their health and wellbeing is a whole nother story, and one we can discuss during your "free Invisalign treatment consultation and simulation" if you would like more information."
We have not had to extract any teeth in any cases of the Invisalign treatment we have performed. We have seen people who have been advised by other practitioners that extractions where required. We have managed to provide treatment with a positive outcome with NO extractions."
How do we do this? With IPR. As discussed, it is not a lot of enamel removed. You will not notice when it has been removed. We feel that performing IPR is a small price to pay if it avoids extracting teeth - which you will notice.

Aligner chewies are used to help your aligner trays fit tighter on your teeth. This results in your teeth moving faster and helps progress your treatment, shortening the time between trays.
Aligner chewies are small, spongy, cylindrical shaped rolls. They are 100% recyclable.
The chewie is positioned between your teeth. While biting up and down it is moved across the surfaces of all your teeth, seating the Invisalign clear aligner tray.
We recommend using for a couple of minutes twice a day.
The chewies are reusable, until they loose their sponginess. We recommend washing with a mild soap after use.
PIC OF CHEWIE IN ACTION
The short answer is no.
There is no age restriction for undergoing Invisalign treatment. Each individual is assessed for suitability for Invisalign treatment during the initial Free Consultation. Age does not come into it the equation."
We see a lot of people nearing the end of their working life. The children have left home, the mortgage is paid. They are ready to spend the kids inheritance on their own health and wellbeing after spending years looking out for everyone else."
Orthodontic treatment may not have been an option when you were younger. We won’t hold that against you. We love the positive impact we see on faces - attending that 30th high school reunion with a beautiful new smile is gold.
Invisalign clear aligners are perfect because no one needs to know you are wearing aligners, only those ones you want to confide in. It’s your little secret."
The mental health benefits of orthodontic treatment such as clear braces and Invisalign clear aligners can’t be denied. As a society we have become very focused on physical attributes. Our smile makes up one third of our face. Our face is the first thing people notice about us."
The positive mental health effect of orthodontic treatment on individuals of any age is well researched

There are physical health benefits too.
Crowded teeth are difficult to keep clean. People who have crowded teeth are more prone to "tooth decay" and "gum disease".(links to appropriate pages)
Gum disease has been shown to contribute to cardiovascular disease

Tooth decay can lead to cysts, infection and loss of teeth
If your teeth are in alignment, they are easier to keep clean. Therefore you are less likely to suffer from gum disease or tooth decay.
The successful outcome of your Invisalign journey is a team effort. We need you to be honest with us with what you want to achieve. This ensures we plan the treatment that gives you the outcome you desire.
We need you to look after your aligners, and attend appointments as required (not very often).
We require you to wear your invisalign clear aligners for 20 - 22 hours a day. This may seem hard for some but if Rhiannan Iffland - Womens Red Bull Cliff Diving Champion for the last 4 years can do it, so can you. Rhiannan wore her aligners while diving off a cliff.
