How does it work?
Invisalign lets you straighten your teeth without having to deal with a mouth full of wires and brackets. Invisalign provides a series of removable aligners that are flexible, and custom made to fit your teeth perfectly. We do place little “attachments” on some of your teeth as part of the process. These attachments act as anchors and pulleys, holding some teeth where they are while allowing other teeth to move.
Invisalign corrects your smile comfortably and discreetly over time.
With Invisalign you get predictable results. Depending on the complexity of your case you could complete your treatment in as little as 3-6 months. Opting for clear removable aligners you can comfortably eat the food you love and easily maintain optimum oral health during the treatment time frame.
Invisalign also requires far less visits to the dentist and allows you to see results along the way, making the process much more rewarding. Invisalign aligners are made from a flexible material, making them comfortable whilst applying a gentle force.
Starting your Invisalign treatment is easy, just make an appointment with us and we can get you started.
Teeth alignment will vary from person to person. Depending on the amount of movement required Invisalign treatment could take anywhere from a few months to two years.
You will have a “tight” sensation when you first begin wearing your aligners. This feeling may return as you progress through the treatment, however it does not last long and shouldn’t stop you from eating or enjoying your normal diet.
We recommend that you take your aligners out while eating as food could damage the integrity of the aligner. Beverages that have staining agents like tea/coffee and wine may stain your aligners, so it is best to take them out. Drinking water with aligners in will not affect the aligner.
When you have finished treatment your teeth will be scanned and photographed for our records and to digitally create an impression of your teeth, which is used to make your clear retainers to keep your teeth in place. 3 sets of clear retainers are included in your treatment cost. A fixed orthodontic wire that sits on the inside of your teeth is also an option (not included in total cost).
We recommend you wear your aligners for as much time as possible each day. It is imperative to wear your aligners 22 out of 24 hours each day for optimum movement and predicable results.
If you misplace, lose, or break your aligners please contact the clinic immediately. We can advise if we need to reorder the lost aligner or if you can progress to the next one.
If one or more of your attachments comes off, please contact the clinic as soon as possible. You will need to attend for an appointment to replace the missing attachment.
Brushing your aligners with water and your toothbrush gently will help keep them clean. Alternatively dropping a quarter of a denture cleaning tablet in water and allowing your aligners to soak for 10 minutes will also give them an optimal clean.
