What is Invisalign and how does it work?

As the name suggests, Invisalign is a set of nearly invisible dental aligners which help to position teeth optimally. 

These dental aligners are customised to fit your teeth and will slowly move them into position. Each aligner set is worn for approximately 2 weeks before being replaced by the next set. 

How long does it take Invisalign to straighten teeth?

It is a fast way of straightening teeth . However, It’s important to recognise that each patient has variable orthodontic requirements and thus this will affect the turn-around time of the treatment.

Is Invisalign painful?

It is natural to experience some dental discomfort during the first few days of wearing a new set of aligners. Initial pain is part of the process and considered a positive sign that your teeth are moving according to plan.

How can I maintain a straight smile after Invisalign treatment?

It is common for teeth to move marginally following orthodontic treatment. It is for this reason specifically that the we will create a special retainer for you to wear at night and this may be needed for upper and lower teeth.
