Invisalign aligners

What is Invisalign treatment?


Invisalign treatment uses clear, removable aligners, which straighten your smile discretely. With no wires or brackets, they’re a discreet alternative to conventional fixed braces.

The aligners are made from a flexible plastic material and custom-made to fit your mouth. You’ll have a series of aligner sets that are changed every week, until you achieve your final result.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

  • Virtually invisible: Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners don’t use wires or brackets and are barely noticeable. They are thin, transparent and custom-made to fit your mouth.
  • Quick results: The system can correct several orthodontic issues to give you a balanced, straight smile in as little as six months1.
  • Removable: Invisalign aligners are removable, so you’ll find it easy to brush and eat normally during treatment.
  • Comfortable: The aligners are more comfortable than traditional braces2. They’re flexible and custom-made for a comfortable fit.
  • See your finished smile: Some of our dentists use 3D imaging technology, to assess your teeth and create your customised aligners. Before your treatment even starts, you’ll be able to see how your straighter smile will look.

How Invisalign works

Here’s a step-by-step guide to Invisalign treatment

How long does treatment take?

The average Invisalign treatment takes 12-18 months, but this varies depending on your individual needs3. Treatment can take as little as six months in some cases.

At your initial consultation, your dentist or orthodontist will advise the best type of braces or aligners for you and how long treatment should take.

Is Invisalign treatment painful

Is Invisalign treatment painful?


Invisalign treatment isn’t painful, but you may feel some discomfort initially or when you change aligners. This is only temporary; your mouth should quickly adjust so the aligners feel natural and comfortable.

The edges of your aligners may rub against your gums and cheeks at first. This should improve over time, but if it continues, contact your dentist for further advice.
