Nothing should stop you from having your desired smile. You might have considered treatment to improve the look and health of your teeth but been turned off by the idea of conventional bracket-and-wire braces. Invisalign is a system of clear aligners that used advanced technology with proven results worldwide that will give you beautiful, straight teeth without the discomfort and appearance of traditional braces.
Customised plastic aligners are used to gently bring your teeth into the correct alignment. The aligners are worn at night and throughout the day and are only removed for eating. They are practically invisible, and most people will never know that you are wearing them.
Invisalign is available for both teens and adults. The average treatment plan lasts for about twelve months, but every plan is customised for the individual patient, so yours may be longer or shorter. We will work with you to create your own individual plan and keep you informed of the progress you are making.

Invisalign has numerous advantages over traditional braces:
- Traditional braces require frequent appointments to tighten the wires and check the condition of the braces. With Invisalign, you simply switch to the next set of aligners, which are created according to the order of treatment planned in advance by your dentist.
- Braces can leave permanent marks on your teeth from the brackets. Even with good oral hygiene habits, plaque can still gather around the brackets and cause damage to the enamel of your teeth.
- Invisalign allows you to eat any foods you want without the restrictions on sticky or crunchy foods that are known for damaging the wires and brackets of traditional braces.
- The wires of traditional braces can poke at your mouth and cause pain and injury.
Who Is a Candidate for Invisalign?
Are you concerned about crooked teeth? Do you have a prominent overbite or underbite?
Invisalign can treat these common problems and many others including:
- Protruding teeth
- Wide gaps
- Unusual spacing
- Open bite
Caring for Invisalign
Practising good oral hygiene habits while you are being treated with Invisalign is easy. Remove the aligners and brush and floss your teeth as usual. Brush your aligner and rinse with warm water or use the Invisalign cleaning kit to keep your aligners in good shape and free from bacteria.
Never use hot water to rinse or clean your aligners. The plastic could warp. If this happens, call our clinic immediately. You should also call our clinic if your aligner becomes cracked or is damaged in any other way. A cracked aligner can impede your progress.
It’s important to always brush your teeth following a meal before you replace your aligners. If you replace your aligners without brushing, not only could you cause bacteria to become trapped against your teeth, you could also generate staining and other damage to the aligners.
Is Invisalign an option for everyone?
Unfortunately, not. While Invisalign can indeed straighten teeth, more severe and complicated issues may require a more intense type of treatment. Invisalign can correct mild to moderate crowding and spacing issues; however, if these issues are severe, it is unlikely that you will be prescribed the Invisalign treatment. Speak to your dentist or orthodontist to discuss whether or not you are an eligible patient for the treatment.
Is Invisalign painful?
When teeth move, it is likely that you will experience some form of discomfort. Invisalign applies pressure on the teeth in order to move them so you may feel some degree of discomfort. The good news is that this is only temporary. You would likely only experience the discomfort on the first day or two after you have received a new aligner. Once you have become accustomed to your new aligner, the discomfort will settle and may subside altogether.
How do I take care of my aligners?
Remove your aligners when eating and places them in their case. You should also not smoke when wearing your aligners. You can also brush them with a toothbrush and toothpaste and rinse them in lukewarm water. Never use hot water on your aligners — it could permanently warp the plastic. You can also place your aligners in some cold water with a retainer tablet.
