Invisible Orthodontics - Addressing a variety of cosmetic and functional problems this specialized branch of dentistry deals with straightening teeth. Through the use of specially designed and fitted appliances constant and gentle pressure is put on the teeth causing them to move into the desired position.
Clear positioners offer a less visible alternative for correcting crooked teeth.
Firstly, a rough impression is taken then a second impression is taken with a fine material. This gives a very accurate final impression.
A 'study model' is made from the impression. A number of other models are made which represent the teeth moving into position.
From these a set of positioners are poduced each one designed to move the teeth by a tiny amount. The aligners are used in sequence and the teeth are gently moved into position.
