Mention the words ‘dental braces’ and many people still conjure up a vision of traditional bulky metal braces fixed to the front of teeth to straighten them. But luckily gone are the days of lengthy treatment with fixed metal braces.

Invisalign® is a clear alternative to traditional braces that can be used to correct a number of orthodontic problems including teeth that are misaligned, crowded or with gaps. Invisalign® are clear, comfortable and removable retainers that gently move teeth into their ideal position without interfering in your everyday life.

Unlike conventional braces Invisalign® are virtually invisible in the mouth, with no need for metal wires or brackets so almost no one will even notice you’re wearing them. They are a very hygienic treatment option because the aligners can be removed when eating, brushing and flossing, making it much easier to maintain your overall oral health.

Invisalign® can correct many orthodontic problems, and are designed for adult teeth of all ages. Invisalign® may not always be suitable for more complex problems but your dentist here at Albion Dental will be able to recommend if Invisalign® is the right solution for you.
