Invisalign® dental braces are the clinically proven, nearly invisible way to straighten your teeth and improve your smile without dental braces. The Invisalign® treatment works through a series of removable and nearly invisible dental aligners. Each aligner is slightly different, moving your teeth gradually into the desired position.
So if you want to show your smile and not your braces, find out more about Invisalign® – the nearly invisible way to straighten your teeth!
Invisalign® is a clear and practically invisible dental brace, so nothing gets in the way of your new smile. No wonder Invisalign® is the choice of over half a million people.
Unobtrusive in business meetings or social gatherings. No metal wires or bands to irritate your mouth. Many people won’t notice you’re wearing aligners.
The Clin-check enables us to digitally see how your teeth will come together (as a guide).
Invisalign® is the clinically proven, nearly invisible way to straighten teeth without metal braces.
You wear a series of clear, removable aligners which gradually move your teeth into the desired position. Our aligners can be removed for eating and cleaning.
Based on our diagnosis, a series of aligners are custom made in a laboratory using advanced computer imaging technology.
You wear each aligner for two weeks before being replaced with the next one, until your teeth are straight.
Aligners are nearly Invisible- straighten your teeth without anyone noticing.
Aligners are Comfortable- there are no wires or metal to cause mouth abrasions.
Aligners are Removable- for eating, drinking, dental care or other activities.
Better oral hygiene during treatment – brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth.
If you have all your adult teeth (fully-erupted molars), most patients can be treated with Invisalign® even if they have crowns or bridges.
Many common issues like crooked or crowded teeth, spaces between teeth and certain overbite and crossbite types can successfully be corrected.
No, you just need to have all your adult / permanent teeth (fully erupted molars).
Be committed to wearing your aligners at all times except for eating, drinking and cleaning.
After your initial evaluation, we discuss your goals for a new smile.
We plan your full treatment together, and take your impressions and photographs.
With advanced computer technology we can then show you a model of how you could look, before you start your treatment.
Depending on difficulty, most treatments will take 12 – 18 months.
The aligners should be worn for 22 to 23 hours a day for the best results.
Every 2 weeks you change to a new aligner and we recommend a check up once every 6-8 weeks.
The aligners are made from clear plastic, so they are nearly invisible.
Even when very close, most people will not notice you are straightening your teeth – unless you tell them!
No. The aligners are removable so you can still enjoy your favourite food and drinks.
You need to avoid tooth decay and /or gum disease by not forcing the food particles and sugars against your teeth via the aligners. So keeping them clean is important.
It is normal that you will only feel temporary discomfort when you wear the aligners for the first few days.
The smooth aligners are not harmful to the inside of your mouth, but you do feel pressure and this is a good sign that the aligners are working.
As with conventional treatments, you may feel a slight pressure at first.
Aligners may temporarily affect the speech of some people, and you may have a slight lisp for a day or two.
