What are Invisalign braces?
Invisalign braces are clear aligners that are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth. They are a modern alternative to traditional braces, offering a discreet way to straighten your teeth. Made from a smooth and comfortable plastic material, Invisalign braces gradually shift your teeth into their desired position.
Invisalign braces are removable, allowing you to easily take them out for eating, brushing, and flossing. This means you can maintain good oral hygiene throughout your treatment. The clear aligners are virtually invisible, making them a popular choice for those who want to straighten their teeth without drawing attention to their braces.
Invisalign braces are a convenient option for people who lead active lifestyles. Since they are removable, you can continue to enjoy your favourite foods without any restrictions. Additionally, the smooth plastic material of the aligners make for a comfortable fit, minimising any discomfort or irritation.
Invisalign braces are a versatile option for correcting various orthodontic issues, including overcrowding, gaps, and misalignment. The custom-made aligners are designed to gradually move your teeth into the desired position, resulting in a beautifully straight smile. With regular check-ups and adjustments, your progress will be closely monitored by our experienced team to achieve great results.
How are Invisalign braces fitted?
Invisalign braces are fitted through a simple and non-invasive process. First, our experienced dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and create a 3D digital model of your mouth. Using this model, a series of custom-made aligners will be created specifically for you.
Once your aligners are ready, you will be provided with a set of aligners that need to be worn for about two weeks each. These aligners will gradually shift your teeth into their desired position. You will need to visit our dental clinic periodically to receive new sets of aligners and for progress check-ups.
Our skilled team will guide you through the process, ensuring that your Invisalign braces fit comfortably and efficiently. With proper adherence to wearing your aligners and following our dentist's instructions, you can achieve the straight and beautiful smile you desire.
Frequently asked questions
We've compiled a list of common questions about this treatment. If you have any other queries, please get in touch.
- How long does the Invisalign treatment typically take?
The duration of the Invisalign treatment varies depending on the individual's specific orthodontic needs. On average, treatment can take anywhere from 6 to 12 months. Our experienced dentist will assess your teeth and provide you with a personalised treatment plan, including an estimate of the expected duration.
- Are Invisalign braces painful to wear?
Invisalign braces are generally comfortable to wear. Some patients may experience slight discomfort or pressure when they switch to a new set of aligners, but this is temporary and a sign that the treatment is working. If you experience any persistent pain or discomfort, our dental team will be available to address any concerns and ensure your comfort throughout the process.
- Can I drink coffee or tea while wearing Invisalign braces?
It is recommended to remove your Invisalign braces before consuming hot beverages such as coffee or tea. The heat can cause the aligners to warp or become discoloured. However, you can enjoy cold beverages while wearing your aligners, as long as you clean them afterwards to prevent staining.
- How often do I need to wear my Invisalign braces?
For great results, it is recommended to wear your Invisalign braces for 20 to 22 hours per day. This allows sufficient time for your teeth to gradually shift into their desired position. You can remove the aligners for eating, brushing, and flossing, but it is important to wear them consistently throughout the day.
- How do I clean my Invisalign braces?
To clean your Invisalign braces, gently brush them with a soft toothbrush and rinse them with lukewarm water. Avoid using hot water, as it can damage the aligners. It is also recommended to clean your teeth thoroughly before inserting the aligners back into your mouth to maintain good oral hygiene.
- Can Invisalign braces fix severe orthodontic issues?
Invisalign braces are effective for treating a wide range of orthodontic issues, including mild to moderate cases of overcrowding, gaps, and misalignment. However, severe cases may require alternative orthodontic treatments. Our experienced dentist will evaluate your specific condition and recommend the most suitable treatment option for you.
