What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a popular orthodontic treatment that uses clear, custom-made aligners to straighten teeth. The Invisalign aligners are made from a smooth, comfortable material that is virtually invisible, allowing you to straighten your teeth discreetly. Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional metal braces, as it provides a more discreet and comfortable option for achieving a straighter smile. The Invisalign treatment process involves wearing a series of custom-made aligners that are changed every two weeks, gradually shifting your teeth into the desired position. With Invisalign, there are no metal brackets or wires to irritate your mouth, making it a more convenient and comfortable orthodontic option.

What are the benefits of teeth straightening with Invisalign?

There are several benefits to using Invisalign for teeth straightening, including:

1. Comfortable: The aligners are made from a smooth, comfortable material that does not irritate the mouth, unlike traditional metal braces.

2. Discreet: Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible, allowing you to straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.

3. Customisable: The aligners are custom-made to fit your unique dental needs, ensuring effective and efficient dental treatment.

4. Removable: Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing, making oral hygiene easier to maintain.

5. Effective: Invisalign has been proven to be an effective method of teeth straightening, delivering results in a shorter time compared to traditional braces.

6. Minimal Interruptions: Invisalign treatment requires fewer office visits, allowing you to maintain your daily routine without significant interruptions.

7. Predictable: The Invisalign dental treatment process is predictable, with the ability to see a virtual representation of the expected outcome before starting treatment.

Is it necessary to wear a retainer after completion of the Invisalign treatment?

Yes, it is important to wear a retainer post invisalign treatment as it keeps the teeth in a stable new position. The dentist will direct on the use of the retainer, in most cases it is the last aligner tray which works like a temporary retainer. The Invisalign provider will guide you for long term retention options.

These are can removed when called for, unlike permanent braces, particularly when you eat or during dental treatment.

They are easy to maintain as they are removable and so oral hygiene can be kept to a good standard by the patient.

Is the Invisalign treatment painful?

A few individuals may encounter temporary, minor distress for some days, towards the start of each new phase of treatment when they use the next aligner. This is generally a feeling of pressure and is considered quite normal. It is a sign that the aligners are working – moving your teeth steadily, helping you to accomplish the desired results. This uneasiness commonly goes away in two or three days.

How long does the treatment take?

The total duration of treatment depends on the complexity of the treatment. Typically treatment can last between 9 and 18 months. During your consultation, your dentist can provide you with more detailed information.

How often must I see the dentist once I have started the treatment?

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

What is the minimum age of the patient that can receive Invisalign treatment?

With experience, an Invisalign Provider Dentist can use Invisalign to treat malocclusion for a majority of adults and adolescents. For teenagers, there are special Invisalign Teen Aligners which may be the right treatment option for your child.

What are the Aligners made up of?

The Invisalign aligners are made of strong medical grade thermoplastic material, uniquely developed for the System. The aligners are customised according to the patient and fit snugly over your teeth.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign aligners move teeth with an appropriate placement of controlled movement on the teeth. Invisalign controls the amount of movement per aligner and also the timing of the movement which is very different to traditional braces. 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.

Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, gradually moving towards the projected final position..
