What does Invisalign® use to straighten your teeth?
Invisalign® uses sets of aligners made of transparent plastic that fit over your teeth. The aligners are customised for your mouth by using advanced medical imaging technology to map out and design appropriate designers for your teeth.
I have a crown, is Invisalign® still an option for me?
Invisalign® is a great option even if you have large fillings, veneers or crowns.
How long do I have to wear the aligners?
Each treatment segment lasts about 2 weeks. You wear the aligners for 20-22 hours per day during each phase. Your dentist monitors your progress every 4 weeks.
The length of your treatment time depends on the complexity of your case, but the average duration is around 12 months.
Can I brush and floss my teeth during the treatment?
You can remove the aligners when you eat or clean your teeth.
What’s the best way to clean my aligners?
The best way to clean your aligners is to use the Invisalign® cleaning system. They can also be cleaned by gently brushing and rinsing them with lukewarm water.
Will I need to wear a retainer after treatment?
We recommend that any patient who has completed an orthodontic treatment use a retainer to prevent their teeth from relapsing.
