5 Invisalign Q&As

Getting a brand new smile has never been so easy.

Take a look at our 5 Invisalign questions and answers to find out more about Invisalign treatment.

How do Invisalign aligners work?

Invisalign is a system of invisible aligners that strictly control the movement of your teeth at each stage of your treatment. Each aligner puts pressure on specific teeth for a certain amount of time, according to the Invisalign treatment plan. The finished result is a brand new smile that matches the smile prediction from your initial consultation.

Will I have to change my lifestyle during treatment?

No! There’s no need to cut out your favourite food and drink, simply remove your aligners! Each Invisalign aligner is completely removable, allowing you to eat, drink, smoke and chew gum as usual. Don’t change your lifestyle, change your smile!

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

The length of Invisalign treatment is specific to each individual case as complexity of treatment can vary per person. The average treatment time is 4 months. Your dentist will be able to give you more detailed information at your free consultation.

What are Invisalign aligners made from?

Invisalign aligners are custom-made for your teeth from a strong, medical grade thermoplastic material. The material that makes the virtually invisible aligners was developed especially for the Invisalign system. Each aligner will be a perfect fit for your teeth at each stage of your treatment.

How do you clean Invisalign aligners?

The best way to clean your aligners is to brush and rinse them in lukewarm water. You should also use Invisalign Cleaning Crystals or special cleaning tablets. It’s really important to keep your braces clean to ensure that they remain invisible! Don’t forget to brush your teeth before re-inserting your aligners to make sure that you maintain proper oral hygiene.
