What is Invisalign?

A smile can change everything

Your confidence. Your outlook. Your life. And with Invisalign, achieving the smile you always dreamed of doesn't have to be a big deal. In fact, it barely has to impact your day-to-day life at all.

Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position.

Comfortable, clear and removable – Invisalign transforms your smile without disrupting your life. Something that over 3 million people worldwide have already discovered.

Treatment comparison

The difference is clear.

When it comes to deciding on the best treatment type for straightening your teeth, there really is only one option: Invisalign. Only Invisalign offers the depth of innovation, the clinical studies and technology that can accurately control the way your teeth are straightened. Fixed braces and other clear aligner solutions just can't compete. And here's why:

Always innovating.

Invisalign is different to traditional teeth straightening treatments. Using innovative technology that we invented and continue to evolve, Invisalign comes as a series of clear removable aligners that straighten your teeth, little by little, and unlike fixed braces, there are no wires or brackets. This means there is no metal and they are nearly invisible when you wear them.

In when you want them in. Out when you don't.

Fixed braces can only be removed by trained professionals – this can hinder your ability to clean your teeth and gums effectively, and may limit what you can eat comfortably. Because Invisalign aligners can be removed at any time during treatment, you can eat whatever you want, maintain good oral hygiene, and choose to remove them briefly for special occasions such as weddings or big meetings. Your lifestyle remains intact.

Look forward to your new smile.

Whatever the goals of your treatment plan, your Invisalign Provider will always give you a clearly defined Treatment Plan. They will also show you what your teeth might look like during and after the treatment with ClinCheck - our virtual 3D treatment plan. ClinCheck shows the series of movements your teeth are projected to go through over the course of the treatment. This enables you to see what your teeth are expected to look like when the treatment is finished and monitor changes as you go.

Can Invisalign work for you?

Invisalign® treats a range of straightening issues, ranging from minor tooth movements to more complex cases. Whatever the issue, the result is a new, more even smile that you will want everyone to see.

Here are some of the straightening issues that can be treated with Invisalign:

Overcrowded teeth & Widelyspaced teeth

Overcrowded teeth occur when there is a lack of room within your jaw for all of your teeth to fit normally.

Widely spaced teeth occur when you have extra space within your jaw.

Cross bites & Deep bites

Cross bites occur when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned. It usually causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, and can happen on both the front and/or the sides of the mouth.

Deep bites occur when the upper teeth overlap significantly with the lower teeth.

Under bites

Under bites occur when the lower teeth protrude past the front teeth, usually caused by undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or both.
