Invisalign ®

Achieve the perfect smile


What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and
achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Using advanced 3D
computer-imaging technology, Invisalign depicts your complete
treatment plan based on your Invisalign Provider’s prescription,
from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position.
Then a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth –
and your teeth only – to move them little by little. Each aligner is
worn for 1-2 weeks before being replaced by the next in the series,
gradually moving towards the projected final position.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

  • Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible. No one may even notice
    that you’re wearing these virtually invisible aligners, making Invisalign
    a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions
    with others.
  • Invisalign aligners are removable giving you the flexibility to eat
    and drink what you want during treatment by simply removing
    the aligners. And you can also remove the aligners to brush and
    floss as you normally would for fresh breath and to maintain good
    oral hygiene.
  • Unlike traditional fixed braces, there are no metal brackets or wires.
    This means that in most cases less time is spent in your Invisalign
    Provider’s practice for adjustments.
  • Finally, Invisalign allows you to view your virtual results and
    treatment plan before you even begin treatment so you can see how
    your teeth are expected to look when your treatment is complete.

How much does Invisalign cost?

As with other types of orthodontic treatment, the cost of Invisalign
is dependent on the complexity of your issue and your course of

And, although only an Invisalign Provider is able to fully
determine your cost, prices for Invisalign treatment are generally
between $3000 – $5400 However, if only minor tooth movement
is required, prices could start from $1800.

 We offer a flexible payment plan and the ability to pay in different currencies.

Some of the questions you may have about Invisalign are answered below

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign aligners move teeth with an appropriate placement of
controlled movement on the teeth. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign
controls not only the amount of movement per aligner, but also
the timing of the movement. So at each stage, only certain teeth
are allowed to move, as per the Invisalign treatment plan for that
particular stage. This results in an efficient force delivery system
that moves teeth into the desired prescribed position.

How long does the Invisalign treatment take?

The total duration of treatment depends on the complexity of the
treatment and is generally comparable to that of traditional braces.
Typically treatment can last between 3 and 18 months. During your
consultation, your Invisalign Provider can provide you with more
detailed information.

What is the minimum age of a patient that a doctor can treat with Invisalign?

With experience, an Invisalign Provider can use Invisalign to treat
malocclusion for a majority of adults and adolescents who want a
better smile. For teenagers, talk to your Invisalign Provider to see
if Invisalign Teen may be the right treatment option for your child.

Is the Invisalign treatment painful?

Some people may experience temporary, minor discomfort for a few
days, at the beginning of each new stage of treatment when they
insert a new aligner. This is normal and is typically described as a
feeling of pressure. It is a sign that the aligners are working – moving
your teeth gradually, helping you to achieve the final results.
This discomfort typically goes away in a couple of days.

How often must I see my Invisalign Provider once I have started treatment?

Appointment intervals are generally the same as with traditional
braces but can be much quicker with less time spent in the orthodontists’ chair during appointments as no adjustments need
to be made to wires/brackets. Patients typically visit their Invisalign
Provider every 4 to 6 weeks to ensure the treatment is progressing
as planned, and to receive their next few sets of Invisalign aligners,
but your Orthodontist will decide based on your treatment.

Can Invisalign close gaps?

Yes. Spaces between teeth are generally easy to close with Invisalign.
Consult an Invisalign Provider to determine whether Invisalign is
suitable for you.

Are there certain dental conditions that automatically exclude someone from being an eligible patient?

Only your Invisalign Provider can determine if you are a good
candidate for Invisalign treatment.
