What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is one of the great developments in modern orthodontics. It is a system of practically invisible tooth-moving clear braces, called “aligners”, that you can put in and take out yourself. That means:
- You can take them out any time you need to
- You can clean your teeth as normal
- Hardly anyone notices you are wearing braces or having orthodontic treatment
A computer makes a 3D virtual model of your teeth where they are now, Dr Murray uses this model to plan where they should be when they are at their ideal positions, and then a robot makes a series of plastic sleeves that fit over your teeth.
These plastic sleeves are see-through and practically invisible in the mouth, and each one is numbered and worn in a sequence. Each aligner is slightly different than the one before it, and each one moves your teeth slightly closer to your end result.
You can read more about it on our Invisalign page.
Dr Murray is a certified Invisalign provider.
