How does Invisalign work?
Our Invisalign treatment based at our St Heliers, Auckland clinic uses a series of custom-fitted clear and removable aligners that are worn over the teeth. These are designed to apply gentle pressure to teeth to gradually move them into their desired position.
During your free consultation at our clinic, our dentists will explain what the Invisalign treatment involves and determine whether it's an option for you. If you decide to proceed, we'll take digital impressions of your mouth that are used to design your custom series of clear aligners.
Each set of Invisalign clear aligners should be worn for several weeks before being replaced with the next set. We'll arrange regular appointments to check your progress and provide new sets as needed.
For the best results, you should wear your aligners for at least 22 hours every day, only taking them out when needed for eating, brushing and flossing so they can work at straightening your teeth.
