All you need to know about Invisalign


If you’ve ever wondered what your smile would look like with straighter teeth but you aren’t sure about wearing metal braces, then Invisalign may be the solution you’re looking for.

What is Invisalign and how does it work?

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that gently transforms your smile. The discreet and fast-acting system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth incrementally. Available to children and adults alike, the system helps to fix all kinds of smiles, from overbites and underbites to crooked teeth, crowded teeth and even gap teeth.

Invisalign works by taking an impression or scan of your bite and using this to form a virtual projection of your treatment. Using advanced computer-generated imagery, a series of customised aligners will be manufactured to achieve your desired result. Once the process has begun, the aligners will be replaced every two weeks as the teeth gradually shift. Some treatments can be completed in as little as eight months, though it could take between 12 and 18 months if your case is more complex.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Most noticeably, Invisalign helps to boost self-esteem and confidence both during and after the treatment. The transparent and almost invisible aligners are discreet, meaning you can confidently wear them out and about. The easy-to-clean system is highly effective at straightening and improving the overall appearance of your smile as well as improving the functionality of your
teeth. Because the aligners are removable, you have the freedom to enjoy a variety of food and to take them out whenever you need to.

Why is Invisalign better than traditional braces?

Custom-made to the unique dimensions of your mouth and teeth, the Invisalign system is an appealing alternative to metal braces because of its fit and comfortable design. Clever technologies ensure that the movement of your teeth is gradual and gentle, in comparison with metal braces that can cause irritation and pain. While Invisalign aligners do cover the entire row of teeth, they
are completely transparent, as opposed to traditional braces where the wires and metal brackets can be seen.

The system’s technology allows you to visualise every stage of your treatment, helping to give you a better indication of the treatment’s progress and duration. Dental issues are resolved in a much shorter timeframe than if using traditional braces and fewer visits to the dentist are required because there are no broken wires to contend with and no food getting stuck in your braces.

The aligners are made from a flexible material, making them easy to remove while eating and to put back on afterwards. This also makes it easier to maintain oral health because you can floss and brush your teeth as normal, unlike braces where it can be difficult to properly clean between the metal brackets.
