Transform Your Smile Without Changing Your Lifestyle

When considering getting Invisalign dental treatment in Singapore, it is important to know the facts. Invisalign Singapore is an invisible way to straighten teeth without braces. The Invisalign journey involves a series of clear, removable sets of aligners that you are required to wear to gradually straighten teeth, without metal or wires. 

Invisalign is a clear alternative to traditional braces. It makes use of virtually invisible and removable teeth aligners tailored for you to straighten your teeth, without the pain and inconvenience of wires and brackets.

While there are many other options for correcting crooked and misaligned teeth, very few other treatment modalities offer the same level of comfort and convenience as Invisalign. It can treat a wide range of conditions such as crowding, gaps, cross-bite, underbite, overbite, prominent teeth, and even improve your oral health. Ask us to transform your smile without having to change your lifestyle.

What are the Primary Benefits of Invisalign?

  • They are discreet. 

As the aligners are essentially invisible braces, you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.

  • They are removable. 

Unlike traditional braces treatment, you can eat and drink what you want during the course of treatment. When you are dining outside, you can also place your aligners inside the Invisalign case to keep them clean and secure. During the course of treatment, you will also be able to brush and floss normally to maintain a good level of oral hygiene. 

  • They are comfortable. 

As Invisalign aligners they do not have metal brackets or wires as with braces, it reduces chances of mouth irritation. No metal or wires also means you spend less time in the dental clinic and general dentist’s chair getting adjustments for tooth movements.

Invisalign clinical software allows you to view your virtual teeth straightening treatment plan before you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete. 

What are Invisalign aligners made of?

They are made of clear, strong medical grade flexible plastic that is almost invisible when worn. Invisalign aligners are FDA-approved and do not contain BPA, BPS, latex, or gluten. 

What do Invisalign aligners look like?

They are clear and look similar to tooth-whitening trays, but are custom-made for a enhanced fit for teeth movement. Some dentists and orthodontists commonly refer to them as “contact lenses for teeth.”

How does Invisalign Align Technology work?

A 3-D computer imaging capability is used to show the complete Invisalign treatment plan from the initial impression of your teeth position to the final desired position from which a series of custom-made, clear “aligners” are produced. 

Each aligner shifts your teeth incrementally and is worn for about two weeks, before getting  replaced by the next in the series until the final position is achieved.

The total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

How does it effectively move teeth?

Like brackets and arch-wires are for braces, when one wears the aligners, it moves the teeth through an appropriate placement of controlled force on the teeth. The main difference is that Invisalign not only controls forces but also controls the timing of the force application. 

At each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move, and these movements are determined by the orthodontic treatment plan for that particular stage. This results in an efficient force delivery system.
