What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign is a ground-breaking, clear aligner system which allows teeth to be straightened discreetly.

The transparent Invisalign teeth aligners are barely noticeable. These clear aligners are worn on the teeth to apply pressure gently and move the teeth into the desired position. The aligners can be removed for taking meals and are put back on after each meal. Invisalign aligner trays must be worn for 22 hours a day. Failure to comply with this will result in the teeth not moving as planned.

To support the placement of the aligners, Invisalign requires tooth coloured attachments to be fixed to the teeth. During the Invisalign treatment, appointments take place every 4 to 8 weeks apart depending on the treatment plan. These appointments help to check that the movement of the teeth is proceeding according to plan for achieving the desired end result.

Invisalign® aligners are near-invisible, easily removable, and do not irritate your gums or mouth. With millions of people worldwide having used Invisalign, it is world’s most advanced orthodontic treatment technology. There is barely any change to your speech, and you should feel hardly any discomfort during the treatment. With our iTero visualisation software, you can see the before-after image of your smile even before you begin with the Invisalign treatment!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • WHAT IS INVISALIGN®?

    Invisalign is a virtually invisible way to align and straighten the teeth. Using advanced 3D computer aided technology, your complete projected treatment plan can be visualised before starting your treatment, so you can see the end result before beginning. Following this, a complete series of clear aligners can be made bespoke to your teeth and mouth moving them over a short period of time

    Each clear aligner must be worn for between one to two weeks before being replaced by the next aligner in the course of treatment, gradually moving towards the projected final planned position. The length of treatment time depends on the number of aligners and will be discussed specifically with your Invisalign dentist.

  • HOW DOES INVISALIGN WORK?

    Invisalign clear aligners move the teeth through a series of careful and controlled planned movements. Each aligner will move certain teeth in a particular pre-set sequence which will move the teeth accordingly over the course of treatment.

  • WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF INVISALIGN?

    Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and hardly noticeable when worn.

    As the aligners are removable, you can also eat and drink whatever you wish during the course of Invisalign by removing the aligners before a meal, which is not the case with fixed braces which may result in dietary restrictions.

    Oral hygiene can be easier to manage as the aligners needs to be removed when brushing and flossing.

    Brackets and wires are not used with Invisalign and as a result there is less appointments required to change these components compared to Invisalign which can reduce the amount of time taken off work to see the dentist to make these adjustments.

  • IS THIS A NEW WAY TO STRAIGHTEN TEETH?

    Invisalign is a system which has been used for many years. but the technology has advanced and evolved to be able to treat a wider range of more challenging and complex tooth movements. The software enables you to see the treatment plan from the beginning of treatment until the end which gives you the confidence that your expectations will be met.

  • HOW MUCH DOES INVISALIGN COST?

    The cost of Invisalign can vary depending on the time taken and the extent of teeth movement required. It also depends on whether just one jaw or both upper and lower jaws need to be treated. The best way to have a correct cost assessment is by booking a free first appointment to get a quote specific to the patient’s dental situation.
