What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Using advanced 3D computer-imaging technology with iTero, Invisalign depicts your complete treatment plan based on one of our Invisalign Dentist’s prescriptions, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position.


Then a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for 1-2 weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, gradually moving towards the final position. Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by your Invisalign Dentist, based on your specific needs.

The Invisalign treatment process is very straightforward and delivers excellent results:

  1. Once one of our Invisalign Dentists have confirmed that you are eligible for treatment, by taking photos, X-Rays and a digital scan or impression, a ClinCheck 3D treatment plan will be created, just for you.
  2. You will receive a series of custom-made aligners to wear every day and change at home.
  3. You will attend the practice every 6-8 weeks so that we can monitor your progress.
  4. After finishing your treatment, retainers will be provided to maintain your new smile.

Is Invisalign right for me?

We can offer you an Invisalign Consultation to see what options are available to you so you can see what a difference Invisalign could make.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible. No one may even notice that you’re wearing these discreet aligners, making Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others.


Invisalign aligners are removable giving you the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment by simply removing the aligners. And you can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and to maintain good oral hygiene.


Unlike traditional fixed braces, there are no metal brackets or wires. This means that in most cases less time is spent in your Invisalign Dentist’s practice for adjustments.


And finally, Invisalign allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you even begin treatment so you can see how your teeth are expected to look when your treatment is complete.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign aligners move teeth with an appropriate placement of controlled movement on the teeth. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign not only controls the amount of movement per aligner, but also the timing of the movement. So at each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move, as per the Invisalign treatment plan for that particular stage. This results in an efficient force delivery system that moves teeth into the desired prescribed position.

What are aligners made of and what do they look like?

The virtually invisible aligners are made of strong medical grade thermoplastic material, uniquely developed for the Invisalign System.


The aligners are custom-made for you and fit snugly over your teeth.

 

How often must I see my Invisalign Provider once I have started treatment?

Appointment intervals are generally the same as with traditional braces but can be much quicker with less time spent in the dentists’ chair during appointments as no adjustments need to be made to wires/brackets. Patients typically visit their Invisalign Dentist every 4 to 6 weeks to ensure the treatment is progressing as planned, and to receive their next few sets of Invisalign aligners, but our Invisalign Dentist will decide based on your treatment.

How long does the Invisalign treatment take?

The total duration of treatment depends on the complexity of the treatment and is generally comparable to that of traditional braces.

 

Typically treatment can last between 3 and 18 months. During your consultation, one of our Invisalign Dentists will provide you with more detailed information.

Is the Invisalign treatment painful?

Some people may experience temporary, minor discomfort for a few days, at the beginning of each new stage of treatment when they insert a new aligner. 

This is normal and is typically described as a feeling of pressure. It is a sign that the aligners are working – moving your teeth gradually, helping you to achieve the final results.


This discomfort typically goes away in a couple of days.

 

Are there certain dental conditions that automatically exclude someone from being an eligible patient?

Only your Invisalign Dentist can determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment.
