How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a series of 
custom-made aligners. These aligners are made of smooth, 
comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. 

Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on 
the exact movements your dentist plans out for you. There are 
no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. 

You simply pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your
 treatment is complete and you achieve the confident smile that you’ve always wanted.
 The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re 
straightening your teeth.


Clear, Removable, Comfortable

Invisalign fits with your lifestyle to ensure your treatment doesn’t hold you back. 
The removable nature of the aligners means you can take them out for special occasions, continue to eat your favorite foods, brush and floss normally to keep your teeth
 and gums healthy.



How long will treatment take?
The length of treatment is dependent on the severity of 
each individual patient’s orthodontic issues. 
Treatment may vary from anywhere between
 six months to two years. 
The average treatment time is between 
12 to 14 months.

Will Invisalign treatment be painful?
Most people experience temporary, minor discomfort 
at the beginning of each new stage of treatment. 
This short - term effect is normal and is typically
 described as a feeling of pressure.

What are the aligners made of?
Aligners are made of clear, strong, medical grade,
 non - toxic plastic. They are smooth, comfortable
 and virtually invisible. They are so discreet, many 
practitioners describe them as ‘contact lenses for teeth’.


Will wearing my aligners affect my speech?
Like all orthodontic treatments, aligners may 
temporarily affect the speech of some people, and 
you may have  a slight lisp for a day or two.
 However, as your tongue  gets used 
to having aligners in your mouth, any lisp 
or minor speech impediment caused by the aligners
 should disappear.


How often do I have to see my Dentist?
Once in treatment, you will need to schedule 
regular appointments with your dentist which will usually 
occur every 6- 8 weeks. 
It is necessary to check - in with your treating 
dentist or orthodontist to ensure that your 
treatment is progressing as planned.


What is the minimum age that Invisalign can treat?
Almost all teenagers over the age of 14 are eligible for
 Invisalign treatment as long as their 
2nd (12yr old) molars are fully erupted.
