Invisalign is a virtually invisible way to straighten teeth and improve the smile. It can be used for those conscious about the appearance of fixed appliances where simpler tooth movements are required. Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners that gradually move teeth to their desired position. A major advantage of Invisalign, apart from being almost invisible, is that the appliance can be removed for eating, tooth brushing and important social engagements.
Lingual (Invisible) Orthodontic Appliances
Lingual orthodontic appliances are an exciting way of improving the smile for those conscious about having visible fixed appliances. These appliances are virtuously invisible as they are attached to the back (lingual) surfaces of the teeth. They can be used to produce high quality results in cases requiring complex tooth movements where Invisalign would be unsuccessful. At the London Specialist Orthodontic Practice, we use the InCognito system which has the advantage of improved patient comfort, less speech interference and better quality results than other lingual systems as the appliance is fully customised to you.
