What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a clear aligner system that offers you an easy and unobtrusive alternative to traditional braces. It allows you to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted, without all the metal, wires and brackets.

Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic trays, or aligners, to give you a healthier, straighter smile whilst remaining virtually invisible. These trays are made of a special type of thermoplastic resin that’s strong enough to move your teeth into alignment. This movement and alignment of your teeth relies on a sequence of custom-made aligners being switched out at custom intervals throughout treatment.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign aligners are orthodontically moulded trays that look and feel like extremely thin mouthguards. These aligners are specifically designed to fit over your teeth and gradually move your teeth into a straighter position. These aligners are specifically designed for each individual.

Every two to three weeks throughout the course of your treatment, you will be issued with a new set of aligners. Each set builds on the work of the last one, so your teeth continue to move throughout treatment.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign offers many benefits, these include:

  • Better fit: Aligners made from the SmartTrack material are comfortable, fit well, and are easy to put on and take off
  • Faster treatment: Depending on your response to treatment, we may consider longer periods between aligner changes. With weekly aligner changes, you’re on your way to the smile you want even faster.
  • Proven results: The SmartTrack material is clinically proven to improve control of tooth movement with Invisalign.
  • Virtually invisible: Most people will have no clue that you’re undergoing dental treatment, because Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible.
  • Effective: Invisalign clear aligners can treat a wide range of teeth-straightening conditions, including crossbites, crowding, open bites, gapped teeth, overbites, and underbites.
  • Convenient: Invisalign treatment is ideal for your busy schedule, since you don’t need to visit the office regularly.
  • Comfortable: Invisalign clear aligner trays are not only removable but are smooth and comfortable to wear. This allows you to continue doing all the things you would normally do, from brushing and flossing, to eating whatever you like.

Frequently Asked Questions

Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment using clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth and correct bite issues. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible when worn. A custom treatment plan is created based on 3D imaging, and patients wear a series of aligners that gradually shift their teeth into the desired position. The aligners are removable for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing, offering convenience and discretion. It’s an effective, comfortable, and discreet way to achieve a straighter smile and improve oral health.

The frequency of wearing your Invisalign aligners is crucial for achieving the desired results. Ideally, you should wear them for 20 to 22 hours a day, removing them only during meals and when brushing and flossing your teeth. Consistently following these guidelines ensures that your teeth are continuously progressing towards their correct position. Failure to wear your aligners as recommended may prolong treatment duration or hinder effectiveness. Therefore, it’s essential to adhere diligently to the provided instructions to achieve the best outcome from your Invisalign treatment.

Invisalign offers versatile orthodontic treatment that effectively addresses various dental issues, particularly mild to moderate misalignments like crowded teeth, gaps, overbites, underbites, and crossbites. This treatment involves using clear aligners to gradually adjust teeth positioning.

However, for more complex orthodontic issues, such as severe misalignments or skeletal discrepancies, traditional braces or other specialised treatments may be preferable. A qualified dental professional will assess your specific needs and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan.

It’s crucial to consult with a skilled dental expert to determine if Invisalign suits your individual case. They will evaluate your dental health and suggest the best treatment option to achieve the desired results safely and effectively.
