What is Invisalign?

26 April 2021

Do you ever laugh with your hand over your mouth or smile with your lips closed? If crooked teeth are causing you to feel pain or embarrassment, we are here to help! We know a mouthful of metal braces is enough to make you cringe. Luckily for you, we have the perfect solution!

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that can be used to straighten teeth due to Crossbite, Crowding, Deep Bite, Gapped Teeth, Open Bite and Underbite. It is suitable for folks of all ages who want more beautiful smiles and improved confidence levels. While crooked teeth are not necessarily a problem, having straight teeth means efficient chewing and easier cleaning – all-in-all a healthier jawline and body!

With Invisalign treatment, you will receive a series of clear aligners that straighten your teeth. Perfect for those of you who are self-conscious about your good looks! These tailor-made aligners can be removed so you can easily replace them every week. Excitement is sure to follow as you discover your teeth gradually straightening over the course of the treatment. With aligned teeth, you will have a beautiful smile that is easier to clean and maintain!

Why is Invisalign better than traditional braces?

Invisalign is effective and discreet when compared to the glaring metal from conventional braces. Your friends and family will literally have to look into your mouth to see them! These clear aligners are made from BPA-free plastic that’s more comfortable than having sharp metal brackets and wires laced across your teeth. Comfortable, removable and almost invisible – how incredible is that?

How does the Invisalign process work?

You will first swing by for a consultation at one of our dental clinics and meet with one of our Invisalign providers to see how we can improve your smile. We will take images of your teeth with a scanner and show you a simulation of what fantastic results you can get.

If our scanner shows that your treatment is recommended, we’ll look at your smile goals and tell you what to expect and create a unique Invisalign treatment plan. 15 minutes is all it takes to simulate how your teeth will end up looking. Simply amazing!

At the treatment stage, we give you customised aligner trays that you will wear as you go about your day. We recommend wearing your aligners for 20 hours each day in order to maximise effectiveness and get that smile of your dreams quicker. Since your aligners are easily removable, you can take them off when you are eating, drinking or if you need to brush, floss or mouthwash.

We will regularly see you at our clinic to check up on your progress and give you a new set of aligners to keep you on track. With quality dental care, treatment usually runs for a period of 6 months, although this may vary based on your unique goals.

How does it feel to wear Invisalign?

The Invisalign aligner trays are comfortable to wear as they are light with a smooth texture – in other words, the fit won’t bother you as you go about your day. You may, however, experience some discomfort as the aligners gradually shift your teeth into their new position. No pain, no gain – it will all be worth it in the end!

Most discomfort is felt after you wear a new aligner as you adjust to new pressure on your teeth. This should subside after a few days. One of our main duties is your wellbeing, and we’re happy to look at your teeth, gums and aligners if you find anything of concern.

What happens when my treatment timeline has ended?

Once your Invisalign treatment has finished, we will give you a set of retainers to wear in order to keep your teeth straight and maintain that amazing smile! Quality Dental will advise you on how to use your retainers so that your teeth don’t shift back to their old position. You certainly wouldn’t want that again, would you?
