Invisalign ®

invisalign-logoInvisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners that has been proven effective in both clinical research and in practices nationwide. So whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted since wearing braces, you will have a new reason to smile. Dr Sarah Lochhead has now achieved Silver status as an experienced Invisalign doctor.

No Braces. Nothing to hold you back.

Invisibile – So no one can tell.
Removable – To eat what you want.
Does not have uncomfortable metal to irritate your mouth.

How does it work?

Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, invisalign® uses your dentist’s instructions to create a series of custom made removable mouth trays (aligners). These aligners apply a controlled amount of force to your teeth, causing them to move. Each aligner is slightly different, moving your teeth gradually into the desired position.

How long will Invisalign® take?

Invisalign® only works while you wear the aligners. We recommend they are worn full time day and night (min 22–24 hours).

invisalign-before invisalign-after

Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks, (before moving onto the next in the series), moving your teeth millimetre by millimetre, week by week, until you reach your desired result.

Treatment length will vary depending on your case, but the average invisalign® treatment is nine to eighteen months.

During treatment you should visit us periodically, until it is determined that your treatment is complete.

Once active treatment is complete, there may be some fine tuning to create that perfect smile.
