Invisalign Aligners

What is Invisalign Treatment?

Invisalign aligners use a clear tray specifically crafted to fit the ideal alignment of your teeth, unlike braces.
 
Throughout your treatment, you will receive multiple aligners, each progressively adjusting your teeth closer to their optimal position.
 
Invisalign clear aligners offer several advantages over traditional braces:

What Oral Issues Can Invisalign Aligners Correct?

Underbite

Invisalign treats underbites, where lower teeth extend past upper teeth, to improve chewing, speaking, and reduce decay risk.

Overbite

Invisalign corrects overbites, where upper teeth protrude too much, enhancing facial balance and oral health.

Open Bite

For open bites, where upper and lower teeth don't touch, Invisalign allows for better bite function and can improve speech.

Crossbite

Custom Invisalign aligners resolve crossbite issues, where upper teeth sit inside lower teeth, preventing uneven wear and gum disease.

crowded teeth

Invisalign aligners straighten crowded teeth, improving their appearance and ease of cleaning by applying gentle pressure over time.

Gap Teeth

Invisalign closes gaps between teeth, which can trap food and lead to decay, creating more uniform spacing.

Invisalign Treatment Process in 3 Steps

Consultation & Planning

You'll discuss with your dentist if Invisalign suits you. They'll examine your teeth, potentially take X-rays, and create a treatment plan. A 3D scan of your mouth allows them to track tooth movements and preview your smile transformation.
Step 01

Custom Aligners

Your aligners are crafted using the 3D scan. You receive several sets, each worn for 1-2 weeks, gradually shifting your teeth. Wear them 20-22 hours daily, removing them only for eating and dental care.
Step 02

Progress & Completion

Regular dentist visits ensure your treatment is on track. After all aligners are used, you might need nighttime retainers to maintain your new smile. Your dentist will advise on the duration of use. Enjoy your new, straighter smile!
Step 03

How much does Invisalign cost? 

Invisalign treatment costs may vary depending on individual needs, case complexity, treatment duration, location, and other dentist-determined factors.
 
To obtain an accurate cost estimate tailored to your dental conditions and treatment needs, schedule a no-obligation consultation with Dr. Dhir.
 
We offer affordable financial options, including monthly payment plans.

Invisalign FAQs

Aligners are typically made of a clear, thermoplastic material that is custom-made to fit over your teeth that resemble teeth-whitening trays.. They are virtually invisible when worn, making them a popular choice for those who want a discreet orthodontic treatment option.

During treatment, you’ll get a series of aligners for gradual tooth adjustment. Each stage targets specific teeth predetermined by your doctor. Invisalign controls force and timing when aligners shift your teeth. Every two weeks, you’ll switch to the next aligner set to progress the straightening.

While Invisalign can be used with virtually any treatment philosophy, special training is required. All orthodontists and dentists interested in treating patients with Invisalign must attend training to become qualified and proficient in the various requirements for treating patients before treatments will be accepted from their office. More than 82,000 dentists and orthodontists worldwide are already trained to treat patients using Invisalign.

A significant number of adults opt for orthodontic treatment; nearly one-quarter of orthodontic patients are adults. Traditional braces gain acceptance among both adults and children, yet Invisalign presents an excellent alternative for adults seeking a more discreet solution.

Please consult with your dentist to discuss your specific case in order to determine if you’re an ideal candidate for Invisalign treatment.

No. The aligners must be in place a minimum of 20 to 22 hours a day for the treatment to be effective.

Smoking is discouraged while wearing aligners because it is possible for the aligners to become stained or discoloured.

The best way to clean your aligners is by brushing and rinsing them in lukewarm water and using the Invisalign Cleaning Crystals or special cleaning tablets. It’s important that you brush your teeth after each meal and prior to re-inserting your aligners to maintain proper hygiene.

Wearing a retainer post-orthodontic treatment is crucial to maintain teeth alignment. Follow your Invisalign Provider’s advice for using a retainer, often starting with your last aligner. Consult them for long-term retention plans.
