Commonly asked questions about Invisalign 

1. What is Invisalign? 

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment designed to straighten your teeth discreetly. This procedure is ideal for patients who have mild to moderate cases of teeth straightening. 

Using a series of custom-made, transparent aligners, Invisalign gently shifts your teeth into the desired position without the need for traditional braces.

These aligners are virtually invisible to provide a seamless and comfortable solution for achieving a beautifully aligned smile. 

2. How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign works through a precise and personalised process. The treatment begins with a detailed digital scan of your teeth to create a 3D model.

Based on this model, a series of custom aligners is crafted to fit snugly around your teeth to gradually apply pressure at the right place.

As you progress to new aligners every couple of weeks, your teeth will slowly shift until the final tooth is in its final position.

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing you to enjoy your favourite foods and maintain optimal oral hygiene throughout the treatment.

3. What are the benefits of Invisalign? 

Invisalign offers a host of advantages for those seeking a discreet and effective way to straighten their teeth:

  • The aligners are virtually invisible to ensure a subtle and aesthetically pleasing treatment.
  • Because they are removable, you can eat and drink whatever you want. 
  • The personalised 3D treatment plan guarantees a precise and comfortable fit to minimise discomfort.
  • With Invisalign, oral hygiene is easier. Just remove your aligners and you can already brush and floss your teeth. 
  • The aligners are easy to maintain. You can clean it with a soft-bristled brush or use a cleaning solution specifically designed to disinfect it. 
  • Just like traditional braces, Invisalign is effective in straightening teeth. The aligner is made from advanced SmartTrack material, which makes it easy to predict and control teeth movements. 

4. How does Invisalign differ from traditional braces? 

Invisalign and traditional braces share a common goal: straightening teeth. However, they differ significantly in approach and appearance.

Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners to provide a discreet and comfortable experience, while traditional braces fix metal wires and brackets to your teeth to straighten them.

With Invisalign, there are no restrictions on food, and maintaining oral hygiene is easy as the aligners are removable. They are virtually invisible, making them the ideal choice for those seeking a more aesthetically pleasing option.

While traditional braces are effective, Invisalign offers a modern and convenient alternative for achieving a straighter smile.

5. Can Invisalign close gaps? 

Yes, Invisalign is an effective solution for closing gaps between teeth. The custom-designed aligners gradually shift teeth into the desired position, closing gaps and addressing various orthodontic concerns.

This discreet and comfortable option provides patients with a clear path to achieving a beautifully aligned smile without the need for traditional braces.

6. Does this treatment hurt? 

Invisalign treatment is generally considered more comfortable than traditional braces. While you may experience mild discomfort or pressure when transitioning to a new set of aligners, it is temporary and indicates the aligners are working to move your teeth. 

Unlike braces, Invisalign does not involve metal wires or brackets that can cause irritation. Most patients adapt quickly to the aligners, and any discomfort is often minimal.

If you are seeking a more comfortable orthodontic experience, Invisalign is your best option.

7. How soon can I see the results of Invisalign? 

Invisalign is known for its efficiency in delivering noticeable results. While individual cases vary, many patients start witnessing changes within a few weeks.

However, achieving the desired outcome may take a few months, depending on the complexity of your case. Consistency in wearing your aligners, as recommended by your dentist, plays a crucial role in expediting the transformation.

Trust the process, and soon you will be enjoying the benefits of a beautifully aligned smile.
