What are Invisalign aligners?

Invisalign aligners are clear, custom-made aligners that gradually shift teeth into the desired position. Made from a flexible, BPA-free plastic material, these aligners are virtually invisible when worn. Invisalign aligners are created using advanced 3D imaging technology, ensuring a precise and comfortable fit.

In the quest for a confident and beautiful smile, many people turn to orthodontic treatments to straighten their teeth. In the past, traditional metal braces were the go-to option for correcting misalignments. However, advancements in orthodontic technology have introduced a more discreet and convenient alternative known as Invisalign aligners. These transparent aligners offer a revolutionary approach to teeth straightening, providing a plethora of benefits for those seeking a less noticeable solution.

How do Invisalign aligners work?

Invisalign aligners work by applying gentle and controlled forces to specific teeth. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks, gradually moving the teeth closer to their desired alignment. The treatment process involves a series of aligners that are worn sequentially, with each set designed to make precise adjustments to the teeth.

Benefits of using Invisalign aligners

Discreet Appearance: Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible, allowing individuals to straighten their teeth without drawing attention to their orthodontic treatment.
Comfort and Convenience: Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are removable, making eating, brushing, and flossing easier. They also eliminate the discomfort associated with metal wires and brackets.
Customised Treatment: Invisalign aligners are tailored to each individual's unique dental needs. The treatment plan is created using advanced computer software, ensuring a personalised approach to teeth straightening.
Improved Oral Health: Invisalign aligners allow for better oral hygiene as they can be easily removed for brushing and flossing. This helps prevent plaque buildup and reduces the risk of gum disease and tooth decay.
Shorter Treatment Time: Invisalign treatment can often be completed in a shorter time frame compared to traditional braces, depending on the severity of the misalignment.

The process of getting Invisalign aligners

Getting Invisalign aligners involves several steps. First, you'll have a consultation with one of our Invisalign providers, Dr Ronette Goosen, Dr Fernando Bockman and Dr Sophie Delaney. They will assess your teeth, discuss your goals, and determine if Invisalign is the right option for you. If it is suitable, they will create a customised treatment plan using advanced digital imaging technology.

Next, digital scans of your teeth will be taken to create your custom aligners. These aligners are designed to gradually move your teeth into the desired position. Once the aligners are ready, you'll be given a series of sets to wear, typically changing them every two weeks. Your orthodontist will monitor your progress and make adjustments as necessary.

How long do you need to wear Invisalign aligners?

The duration of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the complexity of your case and your specific dental needs. On average, treatment can last anywhere from several months to over a year. It's important to wear your aligners for the recommended 20-22 hours a day to ensure effective results and timely completion of the treatment.

What to expect during the treatment process

During the Invisalign treatment process, you can expect your teeth to gradually shift into alignment. While wearing your aligners, you may experience some mild discomfort or pressure, especially when switching to a new set. This is normal and indicates that the aligners are working to move your teeth. However, any significant pain should be reported to your orthodontist.

Is Invisalign right for everyone?

Invisalign is suitable for many individuals seeking orthodontic treatment. However, it may not be suitable for everyone, especially in cases of severe malocclusions or complex dental issues. It's best to consult with an experienced orthodontist to determine if Invisalign is the right option for you.

Potential side effects of using Invisalign aligners

While Invisalign is generally considered safe and well-tolerated, there are some potential side effects to be aware of. These can include temporary discomfort, soreness, or irritation of the gums and cheeks. In rare cases, some individuals may experience allergic reactions to the materials used in the aligners. It's important to discuss any concerns or side effects with your orthodontist.

How to care for Invisalign aligners

Proper care and maintenance of your Invisalign retainers are essential for the success of your treatment. Here are some tips:
Clean your aligners daily: Never brush your aligners, as this can give them a cloudy appearance. Soak your aligners in a specialist aligner cleaning product such as Retainer Brite once a day, dissolving the product in a glass of COLD WATER. Rinse them thoroughly before putting them back in your mouth.
Avoid eating or drinking with aligners: To prevent staining and damage, it's best to remove your aligners before eating or drinking anything other than plain water.
Maintain good oral hygiene: Brush and floss your teeth after every meal before reinserting your aligners. This helps prevent food particles from getting trapped and causing dental issues.
Store your aligners properly: When not wearing your aligners, store them in their case to protect them from damage or loss.
Follow your dentist's instructions: Your dentist will provide specific guidance on caring for your aligners and any additional steps you should take to maintain oral health during treatment.

Comparing Invisalign aligners to traditional braces

Book A Consultation Now
Invisalign aligners offer several advantages over traditional braces. Here are some key points of comparison:
Aesthetics: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, making them a more discreet option compared to the noticeable metal brackets and wires of traditional braces. This is particularly beneficial for individuals who prefer a more subtle orthodontic treatment.
Comfort: Invisalign aligners are made from smooth, BPA-free plastic, reducing the likelihood of irritation and discomfort often associated with braces. There are no metal components that can cause abrasions or poke the soft tissues of the mouth.
Removability: Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners can be easily removed when necessary. This means you can enjoy your favourite foods without restrictions and maintain proper oral hygiene by brushing and flossing without obstruction.
Treatment Duration: In certain cases, Invisalign treatment may offer faster results compared to traditional braces. The length of treatment depends on individual factors, such as the complexity of the case and the patient's compliance with wearing the aligners as instructed.
Convenience: With Invisalign aligners, you'll typically have fewer orthodontic visits compared to traditional braces. This can be advantageous for individuals with busy schedules or those who prefer fewer interruptions in their daily lives.

Invisalign aligners for teenagers and adults

Invisalign aligners are suitable for both teenagers and adults. Invisalign Teen is specifically designed to address the unique needs of teenagers, taking into consideration their ongoing dental development and the importance of compliance. Invisalign offers a discreet and comfortable option for teenagers who may feel self-conscious about traditional braces.

For adults, Invisalign provides a way to straighten their teeth without sacrificing their professional image or lifestyle. The clear aligners allow for a more inconspicuous treatment that fits seamlessly into their daily routine.

Invisalign Aligners FAQ's

If you don't see the information you are looking for, Contact Us, our team are waiting to assist you.
No, wearing Invisalign retainers should not significantly impact your speech. Initially, you may experience a slight adjustment period where you may notice a temporary change in speech patterns. However, most individuals adapt quickly, and any speech issues typically resolve within a few days.
It is not recommended to drink hot beverages, such as tea or coffee, while wearing Invisalign retainers. The heat can deform the aligners, affecting their fit and effectiveness. It's best to remove your aligners before consuming hot liquids and wait until they have cooled down before putting them back in.
No, it's important to avoid chewing gum while wearing Invisalign retainers. Gum can stick to the aligners, making them difficult to clean and potentially damaging the aligner material.
Some mild discomfort may be experienced when wearing Invisalign retainers, particularly when transitioning to a new set of aligners. This discomfort is usually temporary and is a sign that the aligners are effectively shifting the teeth. Over-the-counter pain relievers or the use of orthodontic wax can help alleviate any soreness or irritation.
Yes, you can participate in sports or play musical instruments while wearing Invisalign retainers. However, it is recommended to wear a mouthguard during contact sports to protect both your teeth and the aligners. If you play wind instruments, you may need some time to adjust to playing with the aligners in place.

To get the desired results Dr Johan replaced the 4 veneers with 6 Emax veneers with a BL1 shade.

Patient’s smile is now more visible and she is confident to smile on camera 😀

You should know that brushing your teeth after eating can sometimes affect your tooth enamel. By immediately brushing teeth after eating, you might rationalise that you’ll get rid of bacteria before they attack your tooth enamel, however, this can end up being more damaging to your teeth.

This practice is by far the very best I have been to - ever! ALL the staff are amazing, from the... warmest of welcomes on reception, to the most fantastic and 'state of the art' dental treatment by an experienced, professional and extremely caring dental team. The premises are inviting, relaxing, and absolutely spotless. I've instantly gone from a terrified patient to feeling reassured and happy with my treatment plan - in a very short period of time. I just wish we had found them sooner, and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them (in fact I do so at every opportunity!) Never before has a dentist extracted my teeth without sedation, but Dr Johan did so with the very minimum of discomfort. I have now regained my smile, and could not be happier - thank you!read more
