Harold Wilson is famously quoted as saying “ A week is a long time in politics”.
We are sure that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump would very much agree with this as they don’t know what will happen during that week, what will throw them off track and what will suddenly rock them in the popularity stakes.
Luckily the world of Orthodontics is very different! We know EXACTLY what to expect in a week, or at least we thought we did!
What can happen in 7 days?
Once upon a time you would have been halfway through your present aligner after a week with Invisalign and looking forward to your next one in a week’s time. Your teeth will have been adjusted precisely 0.2 of a millimetre where needed during the two weeks for each aligner. Now the world of Orthodontics has been fast tracked with the new announcement by Invisalign that you can change your aligner EVERY* week and have the same movement as you would have in two weeks – we can now effectively halve the time it takes to give you the smile you have dreamed of; imagine that – a week is not a long time in Orthodontics and we can exactly predict what your teeth will look like at the end of it. We think you would agree that is really exciting news!
*If you are undergoing Invisalign treatment already, please ensure you take advice from your Orthodontist BEFORE changing your treatment plan.
