Invisalign

Invisalign is used to straighten crooked or crowded teeth, as well as close gaps and adjust overbites. The treatment involves wearing clear plastic trays that are customized for your mouth, making Invisalign a less-noticeable alternative to metal braces.

Dear Matteo As with most orthodontic treatment, there is no age limit for Invisalign treatment. In fact, Invisalign has developed new features that work great on growing children to help to correct jaw size discrepancies in conjunction with correcting the overall alignment of te...

Dear Emory, Braces and Invisalign are all tools an orthodontist uses to treat patients. There are many factors which may lead to the decision of selecting one system over the other, such as cost, complexity of case, preference of the dentist for one system over the other (based o...

Dear Z, As long as the aligners are fitting well and are well seated, rest assured you have nothing to worry about! I would have to agree with Dr Sylvia, we all have different pain thresholds and adapt differently to the aligners as it is something new. Some patients feel more discomfort than ...

Dear Watermelonmoly, Invisalign can be quite successful in completing the initial phases of an orthodontic case that requires extractions. However, the finishing stages may still require fixed braces and the duration you need to wear fixed braces depends on how well your initial alignment ends u...

Hi Jol, Sorry to hear that your teeth has relapsed from your previous braces treatment. Both conventional fixed braces and Invisalign are effective in moving and straightening teeth, regardless of whether it is for relapse or new cases. Most relapse cases occurs with shift...

Dear Z, I would suggest having a prototype of the veneers made with the ideal shape, size and position of your front teeth so that you and your dentist can visualize the final aesthetic result of combining Invisalign and veneers. At the prototype stage, tweaks to the veneers c...

Dear Mich, Many Invisalign patients have attachments on their teeth to allow extra grip for the aligners and to help the teeth move better. These attachments are in the form of a tooth-coloured dental bonding material that are cemented on the teeth, and may come in various shapes...
