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.

Invisalign

Bio

NEARLY INVISIBLE

Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. This means you can always smile with confidence, as compared to traditional braces where the wires and metal brackets can be seen.

REMOVABLE

Invisalign aligners are made with SmartTrack® flexible material, making it super easy to remove and put on, unlike braces which are fixed. Now, you can enjoy your favourite food any time you want.

LESSER PAIN

SmartStage® and SmartForce® technologies ensure there will only be gradual and gentle yet effective teeth movement throughout your treatment, as compared to braces which may irritate and cause pain.

FEWER DOCTOR VISITS

Unlike braces where you have to visit your doctor once every 3-4weeks, Invislign frees up your schedule with visits to the clinic only every 6-8 weeks.

CLEARER TIMELINES

Invisalign treatment allows you to visualize every stage of the treatment, giving you a clearer picture of the treatment duration. Braces can only give you an approximate duration at the beginning of the treatment.

ORAL HEALTH

Since Invisalign aligners are removable, you can still floss and brush your teeth as per normal whereas braces may make it difficult for you to clean in between the metal brackets which can result in plaque accumulation and poor oral hygiene.

I did Invisalign with Dr Yap, and I feel that everything is great. I don't feel any pain at all as he is a very gentle doctor, and he was able to solve the problem that I've highlighted to him. Thank you so much Dr Yap.

An Invisalign miracle happened on me here. I have visited numerous dentists prior to selecting Orchard Scotts Dental Dr Ronnie Yap. The previous dentists I consulted all suggested extraction of teeth as I had a serious overcrowding issue. It didn't make any sense to me that I have to remove healthy teeth. One Dentist even suggested a jaw expansion thingy to be stuck in my mouth for 6months, he said cos my jaw is small hence overcrowding. Absurd!


Dr Ronnie Yap did my Invisalign program without a single tooth extraction. He confidently mentioned to me that if I were to extract teeth out, I would have a "collapsed smile" and that wouldn't be nice at all. I am now 10 months into my aligner program and my teeth have shifted so much and becoming so much straighter that I couldn't believe my eyes. Dr Yap is a saviour to great smiles. I am very satisfied with "yet to even complete" Invisalign journey and am enjoying every change of aligner (weekly), cos I know I'm one step away from dream smile. :D

Dr Beth was very reassuring, patient and professional. Through my Invisalign journey, I could see that she was very dedicated and vested in my treatment so that I could archieve the best results possible. Dr Beth's personable and gentle demeanour instantly debunks the traditional myth about dentists being stern, grumpy and ruthless. I almost always enjoy my chair time so much that I never want to leave!

Through word of mouth i got to know of Dr Kenneth Lew and Tanglin Dental Surgeons. Was expecting them to be expensive due to their prime location in orchard, but i was so wrong after comparing them to neighbourhood dental chain. I am on my 16 out of 24 weeks Invisalign treatment so far and the service standards are by far the best i can expect. Kind nurses and a very professional Doctor.

I had my treatment done with Geri and dentist Dr Kumar for invisalign, implant and veneers. Dr Kumar is experienced and skillful in the consultations and surgeries he conducted. Dental Implant Centre is a very efficient clinic with convenient operating hours and they manage the waiting queue / appointments very well

今天是配戴隐形牙套的第二个月。 我是在去年圣诞节前开始的。 在此之前,我对隐形牙套毫无概念。当黄奕巧医生拿出一副透明牙套时,我还是半信半疑。现在明白,当时她用仪器测量口腔,就是为了准确地量身定制这副独一无二的牙套给我。她当时做出方案,分阶段改善下齿整齐,上齿突出,以及咬合问题,如此循序渐进地调整。 现在我已用到第五副牙套。戴过四副,我已经有了些小经验,通常新牙套在头两天会不适,接下来不适感会慢慢消失。我也问,为何会越来越没感觉牙套?黄医生解释,这可能是牙齿间松动了。 每次来复诊时,黄医生都会帮我调整牙齿间缝隙,让牙齿能配合牙套方案达到预期目标。她的手轻巧灵活,专业熟练。 的确,我现在已明显看到,下齿整齐度比以前提高,当然,离预期目标还有一段距离。 所以,坚持配戴是效果的重要保证。

DENTISTS AND ORTHODONTISTS CAN PERFORM YOUR BRACES, CAROUSELL SELLERS CANNOT

This article is a guest post by Dr T C Phua, President of the College of General Dental Practitioners (Singapore).

Looking to straighten your teeth? Perhaps you've come across cheap "teeth alignment kits" sold on Carousell that look similar to Invisalign, with prices ranging from $8 to $20.

You may also be confused as to whether you need to see a general dentist or an orthodontist for braces treatment in Singapore. This post will hopefully help to clear things up!

INVISALIGN: 6 QUESTIONS YOU WERE TOO AFRAID TO ASK AN ORTHODONTIST!

Is Invisalign for everyone? Why is it so expensive? Will I get a good result? These are some common Invisalign-related questions I get, be it in the dental surgery or whilst having coffee with friends.

Gone are the days where patients come into the clinic asking for those awful metal steel braces. As Dr Meow mentioned in her previous post on various types of braces treatment in Singapore, Invisalign is all the rave these days.

We live in an aesthetically-driven society and moving with times, orthodontic treatment has certainly evolved. Orthodontists are now able to provide patients with good outcomes using more "invisible" braces.

7 RECOMMENDED INVISALIGN CLINICS IN SINGAPORE (ORTHODONTICS)

I underwent Invisalign treatment myself over a decade ago. As a pimply army boy, I was ultra conscious about wearing a metal tray in my mouth. Back then, Invisalign in Singapore was still relatively new, which made the selection process a whole lot easier (there were only 3 or 4 Invisalign clinics to choose from).

There's now a glut of dental clinics in Singapore offering Invisalign. Beyond comparing based on Invisalign costs in Singapore, I'd sympathise if you had no clue where to start with your search for the best Invisalign clinic.
