Invisalign - What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a series of removable, clear aligners that can be used to straighten teeth.

Each aligner is worn for two weeks and gradually moves the teeth into a beautiful smile. Invisalign treatment is customised for you, as each aligner is individually manufactured to fit your teeth.

Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign is a great way to transform your smile without interfering with your daily life.

The key benefits of Invisalign are:

  • Virtually Invisible
  • Removable
  • No restrictions on what you can eat
  • Hygienic – the aligners are removed for brushing and flossing
  • Comfortable

Invisalign is a great option for adults who want to transform their smile while minimising the impact of treatment on their day-to-day life. Invisalign has been used to treat over one million patients worldwide. Due to the growing rate of Invisalign clinical experience, an ever increasing range of orthodontic cases can be treated with Invisalign.

The features of an ideal Invisalign case are:

  • Mild to moderate crowding
  • Mild to moderate spacing
  • Narrow arches
  • Relapse after braces

Invisalign Teen

Now, with the introduction of Invisalign Teen even adolescents can enjoy the benefits of the Invisalign System.

The Invisalign Teen system is specifically designed for the needs of teenagers.

Invisalign Teen:

  • Allows for any teeth that are still growing
  • Has a special blue dot wear indicator – when the dot fades you graduate to the next set of aligners
  • Are replaceable if lost

Treatment Time

Invisalign treatment is customised and therefore the number of aligners varies for each person. On average the treatment time with Invisalign ranges from 9 to 18 months. During your treatment you will visit us every 6 to 8 weeks for adjustments.

At these appointments we will check your progress and issue you with new aligners to continue the straightening process.

The Invisalign Treatment Process

The Invisalign System then uses 3D computer technology to generate a virtual model from impressions of your teeth. Your orthodontist then plans the exact tooth movements that need to be performed using this model. The virtual 3D treatment plan (ClinCheck®) shows the series of movements your teeth will go through over the course of the treatment.

This allows you to see upfront what your teeth are expected to look like at the end of the treatment. From the results of the ClinCheck, your custom-made, clear aligners are created specifically for you.
