invisalign orthodontics
Invisalign is the most advanced clear aligner system in the world. Each feature is designed to reveal the smile that you deserve. Because it’s not just your smile that’s full of potential.

What are Invisalign aligners?

Invisalign® clear aligners are custom-made for you. The aligners are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth. Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed. Your aligners are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time. When you change to the next set of aligners (typically every week) your teeth gradually move into position, following a custom treatment plan mapped out by your doctor. Only Invisalign clear aligners are made of proprietary, multilayer SmartTrack® material to gently shift your teeth into place.

Life can continue as normal, as the Invisalign System discreetly does its work. You can comfortably wear your aligners for 22 hours a day. And because the aligners are removable, it’s easy to maintain your regular oral hygiene and enjoy your usual diet. As you progress, replacing your aligners every 1-2 weeks, people may notice a gradual change in your smile.


THE INVISALIGN PROCESS

Your first consultation

Book your first consultation by phoning our practie and one of our team will get you booked in - TeL: 028 9335 2805.

At your initial consultation, your dentist will discuss your needs and evaluate whether Invisalign treatment is right for you.

Your treatment plan

Your dentist will use a scanner to create fast, precise 3D digital images of your teeth. Then they will map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will be.

You’ll even get to see how your teeth will move and preview your new smile.

Your clear aligners

Your custom-made aligners will be made of our proprietary SmartTrack® material. They’re virtually invisible, so most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them.

Wear your Invisalign clear aligners 20 to 22 hours a day for the best results, taking them out to eat and to brush and floss.

Your progress

As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place. We may recommend that you begin wearing a new set of aligners every week & schedule check-ups every 6 weeks or so. At every stage you’ll be able to see your progress and imagine how far your new smile will take you.



Your aftercare

When your treatment is complete, we will fit a retainer  which will be custom made to fit your new smile. The retainer is made using the same state-of-the-art technology as Invisalign clear aligners.

Your perfect smile

Congratulations - your Invisalign treatment is complete and you can now enjoy your amazing new perfectly straight smile.

YOUR ORTHODONTIC QUESTIONS ANSWERED

WILL I HAVE ANY DISCOMFORT?

Teeth straightening has come a long way! Modern techniques take full advantage of advances in technology to not only speed up the straightening process but also to help reduce any pain or discomfort. However, some people may still experience slight sensitivity and soreness.


HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO STRAIGHTEN MY TEETH?

The length of time it takes to straighten teeth can vary significantly- from only a few weeks or months, or, in more challenging cases, a year or more. Our in-house Jennifer will be happy to have a chat with you and give you a proper time estimate, but it’s likely to be less time than you might expect.


HOW MUCH WILL BRACES COST?

The cost of braces will vary depending on the system you and your dentist choose as well as the amount of time and the complexity of your individual circumstances. Stop by and have a chat with Jennifer or other members of our team.
