Invisalign Treatment

Clear aligner therapy has revolutionised aesthetic dentistry. It is the most conservative form of aesthetic dental treatment. If you have crowded or misaligned teeth, you can now smile with confidence following a treatment with Invsialign or ClearCorrect.

Patients with crowded teeth may have an aesthetic concern but they also need to seriously consider the functional aspects of the teeth.

It’s important to understand that malpositioned teeth are:

  • More susceptible to dental decay
  • High chance of teeth fracturing
  • More difficult to clean
  • Predisposed to gingivitis and periodontal disease
  • More likely to have shorter teeth due to attrition and excessive wear
  • Potential jaw joint dysfunction
  • Can promote improper tongue posture and function
  • Can promote improper lip posture and function

Aside from your smile, crowding has many negative effects on your teeth. Some of these are irreversible. The accelerated ageing of your dentition (teeth) will then require more extensive and costly treatments. Investing in an early intervention with clear aligner therapy is a much more conservative and cost-effective.

This cutting edge treatment eliminates the need for traditional metal braces and replaces this with a sequence of custom-made translucent aligners that work gently to straighten your teeth over time. Treatment typically lasts 9-18 months can this can vary depending on the degree of crowding.

Because the aligners are removable, you don’t have the nuisance of food getting stuck in between braces and wires. And because you can remove Invisalign any time, keeping up your normal oral hygiene routine at home is easy. Which means there’s less chance of suffering from damaging plaque, dental caries, and periodontal disease.
