Are you seeking a straighter smile?

Straighter teeth can boost self-confidence and self-esteem, as well as reduce chances of tooth decay and gum disease. If this is something you are considering Invisalign could be the perfect option for you.

Invisible

Removable

Comfortable

See Invisalign – How does it work and what’s in it for me?

Invisalign ‘invisible’ braces are a discreet and comfortable option to straighten teeth. They are completely removable so you can remove for eating, cleaning and flossing or even special occasions. The custom-made aligners fit comfortably in your mouth without the need for wires like conventional braces. The clear aligners are changed every two weeks to move teeth into the desired position.

Invisalign FAQs

 

What is invisalign?

Invisalign, also known as invisible braces, clear aligners or teeth straighteners, is a dental treatment, which uses a series of clear, comfortable and removable teeth aligners to straighten a person’s teeth. It is a more subtle alternative to metal braces. 

 

How long does invisalign take to work?

The treatment can vary from person to person and your dentist will advise you on when to change aligners and how long it will take for your teeth to be straight. Overall clear aligners are often changed every 2 weeks and the treatment can roughly take around 12 months for the teeth to be fully straight.

 

How many hours a day should Invisalign be worn?

For the best results you should wear your invisalign clear braces for 20 – 22 hours a day and only take them out for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.

 

Is invisalign painful?

Like any braces, you may find that you feel some discomfort and aching but the pain should be much less intense than traditional braces. Any pain caused should gradually fade as your teeth become more accustomed to the clear aligners. 

 

How often should I visit the dentist during my invisalign treatment?

This may vary depending on your treatment but typically invisalign patients will need to visit their dentist once every 6 weeks.

How does invisalign work?

Invisalign, clear aligners and invisible braces are almost invisible, are custom made for your teeth and include no metal. Throughout your invisalign treatment, you will wear a series of clear aligner trays that will gradually move your teeth towards their ideal positions.

How do I clean and care for my invisalign aligners?

Whenever you remove your invisalign aligners, be sure to rinse the tray with water to remove any plaque or bad bacteria. Never use hot water as this can damage the shape of the tray. Brush and floss your teeth to keep on top of your oral hygiene and prevent any food or drink stains appearing on your clear aligners.

 

Can you eat, drink or chew gum with invisalign in?

Remove your invisalign aligner every time you eat or drink anything other than water to avoid the tray becoming discoloured and bacteria growing. Avoid chewing gum as this can get stuck in the aligner and damage the tray due to the constant chewing motion.

 

Will my teeth move back after the invisalign treatment?

Once your invisalign treatment is complete you will be provided with a clear retainer to wear every night when you go to sleep. Most people require adult braces because they didn’t wear their retainer after their metal brace was removed and their teeth have since shifted so it’s incredibly important to wear the retainer every single night to prevent the teeth from moving back.

The next steps

Each person’s teeth are very different, therefore we will need to undertake an Invisalign eligibility assessment to assess if your teeth are suitable for Invisalign invisible braces.
