Invisalign

Invisalign is a technique that straightens your teeth using a variety of custom-made moulds.

This fresh look on teeth straightening is taking the dentist profession by storm. This breakthrough technology gives you the smile you always wanted without the requirement for brackets, wires, or bands.

A great alternative

Invisalign uses a series of replaceable and removable aligners to straighten your teeth before your very eyes. The aligners are changed around every two weeks as, little by little, your teeth will move each week. They will finally settle into their prescribed alignment, and the process is complete. Invisalign are comfortable to wear, and they can be removed, so you are still able to brush, floss, and eat as normal.

Lower treatment time

The typical Invisalign process takes about one year from beginning to end. You’ll see your doctor each month or two to check how progression is going. During every few visits, you will receive new aligners to continue with treatment. Usually, the number of aligners used throughout the whole treatment is around 18 to 30. However, the treatment time and number will vary from patient to patient.

Comfortable and invisible

The treatment of Invisalign is barely visible. No undue attention will be drawn to your teeth and mouth while undergoing treatment. It’s normal for people not to even notice you are wearing them. They are super comfortable to use and can be removed, so normal functions like brushing, eating, and flossing can continue as normal.

Is Invisalign for me?

Invisalign aligners are practically invisible and are clear in colour, so nothing distracts from your new smile. It’s no wonder that so many people are choosing Invisalign.

  • Unobtrusive in social gatherings or business meetings
  • No bands of metal wires to irritate your mouth
  • People will barely notice you are wearing aligners.

Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign

Orthodontics is an area within dentistry where any type of malocclusion can be treated. A malocclusion is anything from the teeth, lips or jaws where they do not line up correctly. These issues could cause your teeth to become crooked or cause an overbite/underbite or your jaw to be unbalanced.

 Patients are provided with affordable, experienced and quality orthodontics who have been dealing with Invisalign for over ten years. We can help you create the smile you always wanted.

How Are Invisalign Aligners Made?

Stage 1
Your dentist will take an impression less, digital scan of your teeth using the latest in technology, ensuring your convenience and comfort.

Stage 2
A 3D model of your mouth will be created. Your dentist will show you a digital and virtual representation of your teeth and mouth before and after using Invisalign, giving you the ability to see exactly what your smile will look like the following treatment.

Stage 3
Your dentist will work with Align Technicians using CAD technology to copy your teeth’ movements. Your treatment plan will be reviewed altogether so you can see just how this wonderful technology can improve your smile of the future.

Stage 4
Customised, clear aligners will be made for you using stereolithography technology. Each stage of the process will be mapped out.

Stage 5
Each aligner will need to be worn for about 1-2 weeks. Your dentist team will regularly check your progress and ensure the overall desired result is achieved.
