What is Invisalign?
Your Invisalign treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every two weeks for the next set of aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to the final position prescribed by your dental provider.
What's more, a virtual treatment plan generated by Align Technology's unique ClinCheck® software shows the series of movements your teeth will go through over the course of the treatment. This allows you to see upfront what your teeth are expected to look like at the end of the treatment. From the results of the ClinCheck software, your custom-made, clear aligners are produced especially for you.
If you're ready for a smile that transforms your appearance, Invisalign is your answer. Although there are many choices out there, no other treatment works as comfortably as Invisalign.
 
Will it fit my life?
The Invisalign treatment can slot simply and easily into your daily routine, without any fuss or embarrassment. There are no metal wires or brackets, so no need to worry about mouth irritations, as the aligners are comfortable to wear and can be easily removed for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.
If it weren't for the remarkable way Invisalign transforms smiles, you'd hardly even notice you're having treatment. As the Invisalign aligners are transparent and difficult to detect when worn, they allow you to straighten your teeth without feeling self-conscious - and should you have an important meeting or event coming up that's causing concern, you can always remove the aligners for that short space of time.
 
Invisalign FAQ
 
Does Invisalign work as well as normal braces?
Invisalign has proven to be as effective at straightening teeth as traditional braces. Patients with severe crowding or bite problems may require treatment in which Invisalign is used in combination with other fixed orthodontic techniques.
 
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign used 3D computer imaging technology to depict the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position, from which a series of custom-made aligners are produced. Each aligner moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about 2 weeks, then replaced by the next in the series until the final desired position is achieved. 
 
What are aligners made of?
Aligners are made of clear, strong medical grade non-toxic plastic that is virtually invisible when worn.
 
What do aligners look like?
Aligners are nearly invisible and look similar to clear tooth-whitening trays, but are customer-made for a better fit to move your teeth. Some orthodontists have referred to them as “contact lenses for teeth.”
 
How does Invisalign effectively move teeth?
Like brackets and arch wires, the Invisalign aligner moves teeth through the appropriate placement of controlled force on the teeth. The principal difference is that Invisalign not only controls forces, but also controls the timing of the force application. With each aligner, only certain teeth are allowed to move, and these movements are determined by the orthodontic treatment plan for that particular aligner. This results in an efficient force delivery system.
 
Will the treatment be painful?
Most people experience temporary, minor discomfort for a few days at the beginning of each new stage of treatment. This is normal and is typically described as a feeling of pressure. It is a sign that the Invisalign aligners are working – sequentially moving your teeth to their final destination. This discomfort typically goes away a couple of days after you insert the new aligner in the series.
 
Will wearing the aligners affect my speech?
Like all orthodontic treatments, aligners may temporarily affect the speech of some people and you may have a slight lisp for a day or two. However, as your tongue gets used to having aligners in your mouth, any lisp or minor speech impediment caused by the aligners should disappear.
 
Are there restrictions on what I can eat?
No. Unlike traditional orthodontics, you can usually eat whatever you desire while in treatment because you remove your aligners to eat and drink. Thus, there is no need to restrict your consumption of any of your favourite foods and snacks, unless instructed otherwise by your orthodontist. Also, it is import that you brush your teeth after each meal and prior to reinserting your aligners to maintain proper hygiene. Don’t forget – we recommend you wear your aligner for at least 22 hours a day!
 
Can I drink with my aligners still on?
You should remove your aligners to drink anything else except water. Leaving aligners on while drinking may stain them and you may be at risk of tooth decay drinking fluids with sugar in them.
 
How often must I wear my aligner?
Aligners should be worn all day, except when eating, brushing and flossing – remember, for at least 22 hours a day!
