What are invisible braces and what does it do?
Invisalign braces are frequently hailed as the pinnacle of cosmetic orthodontics. The Invisalign treatment represents a groundbreaking approach to teeth alignment, eliminating the need for traditional braces by employing a sequence of virtually invisible aligners in place of wires and brackets. These transparent aligners gradually and precisely shift your teeth, progressing week by week and millimetre by millimetre until they reach the desired alignment.
Through the implementation of advanced 3D computer technology, each Invisalign aligner is custom-crafted to fit snugly over your teeth. Unlike conventional braces, these aligners can be conveniently removed for activities such as eating, brushing, and flossing.
Reasons to choose Invisalign
Invisalign is virtually undetectable since it lacks any visible metal components, making it unlikely for others to notice them easily.
Invisalign can be conveniently taken off during meals and special occasions, allowing for greater flexibility in daily activities.
5Oral health benefits
Since the aligners are not permanently attached to your teeth, they enable regular brushing, making it easier to maintain good oral hygiene throughout the treatment process.
Without metal brackets or wires, Invisalign ensures a comfortable experience without causing gum irritation or discomfort inside the mouth.
The clear aligners and absence of metal brackets contribute to a more confident smile. This increased self-assurance can lead to a greater sense of relaxation and reduced stress, as smiling has been scientifically linked to improved cardiovascular health.
Smiling, even if it’s forced, has been proven to activate the pleasure centers in the brain, releasing endorphins that help alleviate anxiety levels. With Invisalign treatment, the ability to smile without self-consciousness can contribute to a reduction in anxiety.

The process takes anywhere from six to eighteen months.
- Clinical assessment: The initial and crucial phase involves a meticulous clinical examination. Our team of dentists utilizes digital scanning to assess your specific case.
- Diagnosis and treatment strategy: Following the examination, a diagnosis is made to determine your suitability for clear aligner therapy. Customized treatment planning is then devised based on your dental requirements.
- Impression creation: Once the treatment plan is finalized, impressions are taken to create the aligner trays tailored to your teeth.
- Receipt of Clear aligners: You receive a series of aligner trays to be worn in a specific sequence. Each set of trays is designed to gradually shift your teeth to a predetermined position.
How long does it last?
If there is any concern that your teeth could regress, we can attach (bond) a fine wire retainer onto your teeth to ensure that they do not move later on in life.
Invisalign treatment aftercare tips
- Maintain your smile with a retainer: Even after straightening your teeth, it’s important to note that they may tend to shift back over time. We may recommend the use of retainers to prevent this from happening.
- Watch your food choices: Following the treatment, your teeth may be sensitive, so it is advisable to avoid consuming excessively crunchy foods for a few days. Give your smile a break before indulging in crunchy snacks.
- Don’t neglect oral hygiene: Sustaining your habit of brushing twice a day and flossing is essential to keep your teeth clean and healthy. Failing to take proper care of your oral hygiene can undermine the effectiveness of the treatment.
- Regular dental visits: Just because you have completed your treatment and achieved the perfect smile you’ve always wanted doesn’t mean you can skip dental visits altogether. It is crucial to visit us every six months to ensure the longevity of your beautiful smile.
