Invisalign is a modern approach to invisible braces. Using a series of comfortable clear plastic aligners or trays, you can straighten your teeth and create that perfect smile you’ve always wanted. Our orthodontists are certified Invisalign providers.
Your first consultation visit will be for your orthodontist to assess your bite and smile for irregularities and abnormalities. Your orthodontist will then discuss options for your treatment including various forms of traditional braces, both metal and clear, and clear aligners like Invisalign and eCligner (another clear aligner system). Your orthodontist will take digital x-rays, digital photographs and 3D CAD-CAM digital scans of your teeth. No longer are dental impressions required! These records are compiled and using Invisalign technology we can map out your treatment for you in front of your eyes. This includes a visual representation of how your teeth will move during treatment and how long treatment will likely take.
Based on your tailor-made treatment plan, a series of aligners are then created specifically for you. A new sequential aligner is inserted approximately every two weeks. This is to ensure stable and gradual tooth movement whilst minimising discomfort. You should aim to wear your Invisalign aligners 22 out of every 24 hours. This way you can take them out to eat and you don’t need to worry about any dietary restrictions or limitations. You can also keep your oral hygiene standards high by brushing and flossing daily without brackets getting in the way. We recommend your returning every six weeks so your orthodontist can track your treatment, making sure everything is happening as it should.
