The Invisalign™ system is an innovative, teeth re-adjustment technique using made-to-measure, near-invisible aligners. As per a report released by Align Technology, more than five million people worldwide have been treated with Invisalign™.

Invisalign™ aligners can address simple and complex dental problems such as malocclusions (bad bite), crooked or protruding teeth, or uneven spacing between teeth. Your dentist will create a bespoke treatment plan for you, depending on your dental needs.

Our team of medical professionals will take an oral impression. The mould is used to craft custom-fit sets of aligners and determine the condition of your teeth and the required course of action. With the help of 3D technology, your dentist will map out the various stages of alignment. Every few weeks, we will provide you with the new set of aligners for the next stage.

In the Invisalign™ treatment, the aligners exert pressure in a controlled manner to gradually move the tooth to the required position. Each new set of aligners is altered slightly to account for the shift in position at each stage.

An Invisalign™ treatment offers the following advantages:

  • Inconspicuous – the clear Invisalign™ aligners are virtually invisible. This feature enables the adjustment to proceed in a nearly unnoticeable manner.
  • Comfortable – the aligners are customised for every patient. As a result, the aligners provide a snug fit and are favourable to the soft tissues.
  • Detachable – the aligners can be removed during your oral hygiene routine, allowing you to continue your regular brushing and flossing techniques. This feature also reduces the restriction on food and drinks that can be consumed during the treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is Invisalign™?

Invisalign™ is a modern orthodontic treatment used to straighten and reposition teeth with discreet aligners.

What is special about the aligners?

The aligners are almost invisible and are custom manufactured for every patient. They are crafted from a patented medical standard plastic which is free from BPA, gluten or latex.

Is the treatment suitable for adults?

Invisalign™ can address the dental needs of adolescent and adult patients. The clear aligners enable an inconspicuous treatment, making it a popular choice among adults.

How many hours daily should I wear the aligners?

You may remove the aligners for daily routines, special occasions, during meetings, or even a night out. However, we recommend wearing them for 20 to 22 hours per day for optimal results.

Are the aligners difficult to wear?

The aligners can be put in and taken out with ease, and our team will guide you through this process during your initial aligner fitting.

Will Invisalign™ aligners affect my speech?

Some patients may experience a slight lisp while they get used to the aligners, but these effects are temporary.

What will be the length of the Invisalign™ treatment?

On average, the treatment takes around 9-12 months. The duration for every patient differs based on the complexity of their case and the wear time of the aligners.
