Invisalign

Invisalign

Every innovative feature of the Invisalign System is designed to reveal the smile that you deserve. It’s why millions of people have now transformed their lives with removable, near-invisible aligners. 

Custom-made to move your teeth little by little, each tiny shift takes you a step closer to that next version of you – efficiently, gently and accurately.  

Made to move all sorts of smiles.

Invisalign treatment is clinically proven to be effective. In the hands of an experienced Invisalign Provider it can be used to treat mild to complex teeth straightening issues, like:

  • Underbite – dental condition characterized by lower teeth that extend outward farther than the upper front teeth. 
  • Open bite – lack of occlusion of the front teeth when the jaw is closed normally.
  • Crossbite – when the upper and lower teeth close in a bite, the two sets of teeth don’t meet correctly. 
  • Overly crowded – misaligned teeth. Teeth that are not lined up properly’.  Patients with malocclusion have teeth that are not as straight as they should be, and this is often not ideal for a number of reasons.
  • Deep bite – the upper front teeth excessively overlap the bottom front teeth when back teeth are closed.
  • Gapped Teeth – also called a diastema (plural diastemata), it is a space or gap between two teeth.

On your terms

Our state-of-the-art digital treatment planning tools mean you only need short and usually non-invasive visits to your Invisalign Provider every 6 to 8 weeks. They’ll provide you with your next series of aligners to take home – so you can change them every 1-2 weeks, wherever you might be.

More precise, less pain

Aligners made from SmartTrack material are more comfortable, trimmed to your exact gum line to fit better, and are easy to put in and take out. They’re also less painful than braces.

Made to move your life, not disrupt it

Because the aligners are removable, you can easily take them in and out to continue enjoying the food you love without any restrictions. For those who participate in contact sports, Invisalign clear aligners can be removed before you play. 

Is Invisalign for me?

As with any brace, for Invisalign to work you would need to adjust your lifestyle a little bit. The aligners must be worn for 22 hours every day and you are not allowed to eat or drink (except cold water) when you wear it. If you are not strict with wearing the aligners, you may be faced with your treatment taking longer than planned or not achieving the best result possible. You do not have to change your diet but you will have to clean your teeth and your aligners after every snack, drink or meal.

Most cases are suitable for Invisalign, however in some occasions only a fixed brace will provide the best result. Book your consultation with our Invisalign Provider and he can answer your questions and guide you through the entire process.

How long should each aligner be worn for?

The aligners should be worn for 2 weeks and then changed for the next set. Moving teeth should be done as slow and gentle as possible to avoid shrinkage of the roots which can make teeth less stable and become mobile over time.

Are they completely invisible?

The aligners are clear and virtually invisible; however the aligners can make your teeth appear shinier and may discolour slightly close to your next aligner change. Many patients get through treatment and tell no-one even knew.

 Does Invisalign cause speak difference?

Not in a long term but at the beginning there may be temporary change to your speech when you are getting used to your new aligners.

How to clean aligners?

The best way to clean your aligners is with a very soft toothbrush and a small amount of your daily toothpaste. You can also purchase cleaning tablets that dissolve in water to use occasionally if you feel that your aligners need freshening up.
