What's so good about it?

What are the Benefits?

1

Virtually Invisible

Invisalign aligners are made from clear plastic, making them nearly invisible when worn. This allows you to straighten your teeth discreetly, without the noticeable appearance of traditional metal braces, which is particularly appealing for adults and teens who prefer a subtle orthodontic treatment.
2

Suitable for Teens and Adults

Invisalign is designed to cater to the needs of both teens and adults. For teens, Invisalign offers special features such as compliance indicators to ensure they wear the aligners as needed. Adults appreciate the discretion and convenience, making Invisalign a versatile solution for various age groups.
3

Removable for Convenience

One of the key advantages of Invisalign is that the aligners are removable. This means you can take them out for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing, making it easier to maintain oral hygiene and enjoy your favourite foods without restrictions.
4

Predictable Results

Invisalign treatment is planned using advanced 3D imaging technology, which allows you to see a virtual representation of your teeth’s movement throughout the treatment process. This technology provides a clear understanding of the expected results and the duration of the treatment.
5

No Dietary Restrictions

With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about avoiding certain foods that can damage traditional braces. Since you remove the aligners when eating, you can continue to enjoy all your favourite foods without restrictions, making it easier to stick to a normal diet.
6

Customised for Each Patient

Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit your unique dental structure, ensuring a snug and effective fit. This customisation allows for precise movements of your teeth, tailored to your specific orthodontic needs, and helps achieve optimal results.

Common Questions

Questions? We've got Answers

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign works by using a series of custom-made aligners to apply gentle, controlled forces to your teeth. These aligners are designed using 3D imaging technology to map out the movement of your teeth throughout the treatment process. Each set of aligners shifts your teeth slightly, making small adjustments until your teeth reach their optimal positions. As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth will gradually straighten, resulting in a beautiful, well-aligned smile.

Is Invisalign noticeable?

One of the biggest advantages of Invisalign is its discreet appearance. The aligners are made from clear, transparent plastic that is almost invisible when worn. This makes them a popular choice for people who want to straighten their teeth without drawing attention to their orthodontic treatment. Most people won’t even notice that you’re wearing the aligners, allowing you to maintain confidence and a professional appearance throughout your treatment.

Is Invisalign the same as clear braces?

No, they are not the same. While both Invisalign and clear braces aim to straighten teeth discreetly, they differ in design and function. Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners to gradually shift teeth, while clear braces consist of clear or tooth-coloured brackets and wires attached to the teeth. Each option offers unique benefits and suitability based on individual orthodontic needs.

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

The duration of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the complexity of your case and your specific orthodontic needs. On average, treatment can take anywhere from 6 to 18 months, but some cases may require more or less time. Our orthodontist will provide you with an estimated treatment timeline during your initial consultation. It’s important to follow your treatment plan closely and wear your aligners as instructed to achieve the best results within the expected time frame.

How often do I need to wear my aligners?

For optimal results, you should wear your Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day. This allows for consistent, gradual movement of your teeth according to your treatment plan. You’ll need to remove the aligners for eating, drinking (except water), brushing, and flossing. Consistency is key to achieving the desired outcome, so it’s important to follow our orthodontist’s instructions and wear your aligners as directed.

How often should I change my aligners?

You’ll typically switch to a new set of aligners every one to two weeks, depending on your treatment plan and our orthodontist’s recommendations. Each new set of aligners is designed to continue shifting your teeth gradually, moving them closer to their final positions. Changing your aligners as scheduled helps ensure that your treatment progresses as planned and allows our orthodontist to monitor your progress during regular check-up appointments.

How do I clean my Invisalign aligners?

To keep your Invisalign aligners clean and in good condition, rinse them with lukewarm water each time you remove them. Avoid using hot water, as it can distort the plastic. Gently brush your aligners with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a mild, non-abrasive soap or toothpaste. Avoid using coloured or scented products, as they can stain the aligners. Additionally, you can use Invisalign cleaning crystals or a denture cleaner to soak your aligners periodically for a thorough clean.

Is Invisalign painful?

Invisalign treatment is generally less painful than traditional braces, as the aligners use gentle forces to move your teeth gradually. However, you may experience some discomfort or mild soreness when you start wearing a new set of aligners, as your teeth adjust to the changes. This discomfort usually subsides after a few days and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers if needed. Most patients find the aligners comfortable to wear and appreciate the smooth, irritation-free design.

Can I play sports with Invisalign?

Yes, you can play sports while wearing Invisalign aligners. The aligners are made from smooth, comfortable plastic that won’t interfere with most athletic activities. However, for high-contact sports, you may want to consider wearing a sports mouthguard to protect both your teeth and the aligners from damage. Consult our orthodontist for personalised recommendations on participating in sports during your Invisalign treatment.

What happens after Invisalign treatment ends?

After your Invisalign treatment ends, our orthodontist may recommend a retention phase to maintain the results and prevent your teeth from shifting back. Typically, this involves wearing a retainer, which may be a removable appliance or a fixed wire behind your teeth. The orthodontist will provide specific instructions on how long to wear the retainer and how to care for it. Following the retention phase instructions is essential to ensure your teeth stay in their new positions.

What is the difference between Invisalign and traditional braces?

The primary difference between Invisalign and traditional braces lies in the design and appearance. Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible, while traditional braces use metal or ceramic brackets and wires that are attached to your teeth. Invisalign aligners are more comfortable and convenient for activities such as eating, drinking, and oral hygiene because they can be removed. Traditional braces may work better for complex cases and are typically less expensive than Invisalign.
