Invisalign® FAQ

The Invisalign system is a series of clear aligners used to straighten your teeth.

Will Invisalign fit my lifestyle?

Time for a snack? No problem. Take out your aligners to eat or drink whenever you want.

Because Invisalign is virtually invisible, hardly anyone would notice anything, until your new smile is revealed. You can remove your Invisalign aligners yourself, enabling you to brush and floss in the normal way so that you can maintain healthy teeth and gums. You may occasionally remove your aligners and enjoy a special night out.

There is no need to change anything, the lifestyle benefits of Invisalign are unrivalled. Just carry on as you normally do and your teeth will be aligned the hassle free way.

You can be yourself with Invisalign. As it’s clear, you don’t have to hide your smile while going through treatment. With clear braces, it’s easy to make your smile picture perfect for that special occasion.

Invisalign appointments work with your schedule. Most visits are in and out, with a quick progress check once every six weeks.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign by Align Tech is the virtually invisible treatment that re-aligns you teeth to attain your ideal smile. Using advanced 3D technology, Invisalign creates your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to their final optimal positions. From this a series of clear aligners are custom produced for you in order to move them gradually. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series until the final position of your teeth is achieved. Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by your doctor based on your specific requirements.

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?

Aligners are clear, therefore no one may even notice that you’re wearing braces, making Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions. The device is also fully removable. Unlike braces, you’ll have the advantages of being able to eat and drink what you want during your treatment simply by removing the aligners at meal times. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene. Unlike traditional metal braces and wires, Invisalign does not use metal brackets or wires that could cause soreness in your mouth. Additionally, you’ll spend less time in the doctor’s chair and having to schedule appointments, and more time out doing what you enjoy. Lastly, Invisalign allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start your treatment, so that you can preview how your straight teeth will look once your treatment is complete.
