Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign clear aligner treatments have been proven to be effective in addressing many common dental problems, including overcrowding of teeth, widely spaced teeth and over and underbites. Invisalign has become increasingly sought after as opposed to metal braces as the virtually invisible aligners are comfortable and cause significantly less irritation to gums, teeth and cheeks. As the aligners are wire-free, they can be removed for up to two hours during times of eating, drinking and brushing.

We are part of the Invisalign-endorsed MiSmile network and have many Smile Stories to share. We look forward to sharing your story.

The world’s leading clear, teeth aligner system

question
What is the Invisalign system?
plus

Invisalign clear aligners are a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Using advanced 3D computer-imaging technology, we can plan your complete Invisalign treatment based on your dentist’s prescription, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position.

Then a series of Invisalign clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth – and your teeth only – 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 projected final position. Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by your dentist, based on your specific needs.

question
Is this a new way to straighten teeth?
plus

Dentists and orthodontists have successfully used removable appliances for years. However, with the application of Align Technology’s 3D computer technology and aligner customisation, Invisalign clear aligners can be used to treat a wide range of patients who want straighter teeth. The unique ClinCheck® software allows patients to see their treatment plan from beginning to end even before the start of treatment.

question
How old is the technology behind the Invisalign clear aligner system?
plus

In 1945, Dr. H.D. Kiesling envisioned that one day modern technology would enable the use of a series of tooth positioners to produce the kinds of movements required for comprehensive orthodontic treatment. Align Technology has made this vision a reality. Using advanced computer technology, Align Technology produces a series of customised Invisalign clear aligners. Each aligner is worn sequentially by the patient to produce gradual tooth movements in both upper and lower arches.

question
Where are Invisalign clear aligners available?
plus

Invisalign clear aligners are sold in over 45 countries using a direct sales model in the US, Canada, Europe, China, Japan, Asia Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East, and supported by distributors in smaller emerging growth countries in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Latin America.

question
How does the Invisalign clear aligner system work?
plus

Invisalign clear aligners move teeth with an appropriate placement of controlled movement on the teeth. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign treatment 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 treatment plan for that particular stage. This results in an efficient force delivery system that moves teeth into the desired prescribed position.

Then a series of Invisalign clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth – and your teeth only – 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 projected final position. Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by your dentist, based on your specific needs.

question
Can I go to any dental practitioner for Invisalign treatment?
plus

While Invisalign clear aligners can be used with virtually any treatment philosophy, special training is needed. All orthodontists and dentists interested in treating patients with Invisalign clear aligners must attend training to become qualified and proficient in the various requirements for treating patients before treatments will be accepted from their office. More than 82,000 dentists and orthodontists worldwide are already trained to treat patients using Invisalign clear aligners.

question
How often must I see my dentist once I have started Invisalign treatment?
plus

Invisalign 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 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.  Your Invisalign dentist or orthodontist will decide based on your treatment.

question
Is the Invisalign treatment painful?
plus

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 Invisalign 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.

question
Are bridges a factor in Invisalign treatment?
plus

Because bridges firmly link two or more teeth together, they offer significant resistance to tooth movement. Your Invisalign dentist or orthodontist will be able to determine whether bridges will be a factor in your treatment.

question
Are crowns a factor in Invisalign treatment?
plus

Crowns (tooth caps) are usually not a factor in Invisalign treatment. However, sometimes small tooth-coloured composites called “attachments” are bonded onto teeth to help achieve certain movements and are more difficult to bond on crowns than teeth. In these cases, the location of crowns must be carefully evaluated. Our Invisalign dentist or orthodontist can provide further advice during an initial smile assessment consultation.

question
What are the benefits of the Invisalign system?
plus

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

Invisalign clear aligners are removable giving you the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment. 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 dental braces, there are no metal brackets or wires. This means that in most cases, less time is spent at the dentist for adjustments.

Advanced 3D computer-imaging technology allows you to view your virtual results (ask about our FREE Smile Visualisation) and receive a detailed treatment plan so you can see how your teeth are expected to look when your treatment is complete.

question
How long has Invisalign treatment been available?
plus

Align Technology Inc., the company that manufactures Invisalign clear aligners, was founded in 1997.

question
How many patients are being treated with Invisalign clera aligners?
plus

More than 6 million patients worldwide have been treated with Invisalign clear aligners but the number of Invisalign patients (and new smiles) grows daily!

question
How much does Invisalign treatment cost?
plus

As with other types of orthodontic treatment, the cost of Invisalign clear aligners is dependent upon the complexity of your teeth straightening and your course of treatment. As a general rule, the cost is comparable to traditional fixed braces.

In simple terms, the more complex your teeth straightening, the more Invisalign aligners are needed to achieve your best smile. Conversely, the less complex the straightening, the less Invisalign aligners are needed. Consequently, based on the number of Invisalign aligners your dentist prescribes as needed, the price goes up or down accordingly.

On this basis, only an accredited Invisalign dentist or Orthodontist Provider is able to determine your cost.  However, in the UK, prices for Invisalign treatment are generally between £3,000 -£4,500 (depending upon the complexity).

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

The virtually invisible Invisalign clear aligners are made of strong medical grade thermoplastic material, uniquely developed specifically for the Invisalign treatment system. The aligners are custom-made for you and fit snugly over your teeth.

Then a series of Invisalign clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth – and your teeth only – 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 projected final position. Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by your dentist, based on your specific needs.

question
What is the minimum age of a patient that can be treated with Invisalign aligners?
plus

With experience, an Invisalign dentist or orthodontist can use Invisalign clear aligners to treat malocclusion for a majority of adults and adolescents who want a better smile. For teenagers, talk to your Invisalign Provider to see if Invisalign Teen may be the right treatment option for your child.

question
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
plus

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, your Invisalign dentist or orthodontist can provide you with more detailed information.

question
Does the Invisalign system work on overbites?
plus

An Invisalign dentist or orthodontist can use Invisalign clear aligners to treat overbites in the vast majority of adults and adolescents. Consult your Invisalign dentist or orthodontist to determine whether Invisalign treatment is suitable for you. Are there certain dental conditions that automatically exclude someone from being an eligible patient? Only your Invisalign dentist or orthodontist can determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment.

question
Can Invisalign treatment close gaps?
plus

Yes. Spaces between teeth are generally easy to close with Invisalign clear aligners. Your Invisalign dentist can determine whether Invisalign treatment is suitable for your teeth straightening and if this will close any gaps.  Your Invisalign Smile Visualisation will enable you to see how your new smile will look after treatment.

question
Will TMJ affect Invisalign treatment?
plus

TMJ refers to the temporomandibular (jaw) joint. People with a TMJ condition can have a number of problems with the jaw joint, some of which can be aggravated by appliances and treatments like Invisalign clear aligners, and some which can improve, remain the same or even cause the condition to deteriorate.

To find out if your TMJ problem will adversely impact treatment, please book an appointment to consult your Invisalign dentist.
