Invisalign®

You may have heard about the new ‘invisible brace’ and wondered what it is all about. If you have teeth that are crowded, too far apart or have shifted since wearing conventional braces, invisalign® may give you a new reason to smile!

Because it is nearly invisible almost no one can tell you are wearing invisalign®, so you can smile more during as well as after your treatment. You can remove invisalign® so you can eat and drink what you like, and studies have shown that it can be better for your dental hygiene during treatment. With no metal or sharp edges, invisalign® is comfortable to wear and does not cause allergies.

The convenience and ease of use have made it the choice of over half a million people, giving hundreds of thousands of people amazing new smiles.

Frequently Asked Questions

Invisalign is a trusted treatment used by over 13 million people to transform smiles worldwide. They are led by engineers and scientists who are continuously innovating to improve the patient’s path to their perfect smile. By using a SmartTrack material to create your aligner, you are guaranteed a comfortable fit that won’t get in the way of your day-to-day life.
The benefits of Invisalign can now be available for children as young as seven; as long as they have a complete set of adult teeth, Invisalign could be an excellent solution to correcting orthodontic issues early on. A Specialist Orthodontist will assess your child’s teeth and then decide whether Invisalign would be a beneficial treatment for them.
On average, Invisalign treatment takes between 6 to 12 months for your teeth to move into the correct position. For a lot of people, a difference in their teeth can be noticed within the first two months after getting their Invisalign trays, but the rate at which your teeth move into the correct position can depend on many different factors, including your genetics, the shape of your jaw, the condition of your gums and even your diet. There is no set time or schedule that can be used for everybody’s Invisalign journey.
Invisalign isn’t necessarily painful but can be uncomfortable for the first couple weeks. When you are fitted with a new alignment tray, your teeth may feel tender and sore as your teeth adjust to a new pressure applied by the aligner. The discomfort should only last a few days after every new Invisalign tray; this shouldn’t hinder your day-to-day life; you may want to avoid hard or crunchy foods.
Invisalign aligners can accumulate a lot of food and bacteria build-up, so it is essential that you thoroughly clean your Invisalign trays at least once a day. They should be washed with lukewarm water and special cleaning tablets every night to kill the bacteria that has built up throughout the day. Brushing your teeth before putting your aligner back in after eating is also important as this prevents leftover food in your mouth/teeth from staining your Invisalign tray.
Getting Invisalign starts with a consultation with your orthodontist, where you will discuss your cosmetic dentistry desires and where Invisalign would be a suitable treatment. Once it is decided that Invisalign will be beneficial, your teeth must be scanned and sent to Invisalign. Invisalign uses the latest 3-D computer technology and your dentists’ instructions to create a series of custom-made removable aligners. Each aligner is slightly different and helps gradually move your teeth into your desired position creating your perfect smile.
