About Invisible Orthodontics

There is a solution to having straighter teeth without having to wear metal braces. Known as invisible orthodontics, this type of treatment offers you the choice of wearing a clear and sometimes removable appliance while straightening and aligning your teeth.

This is often a favourable option for adults who have professional careers and don’t feel comfortable wearing unsightly ‘train track’ braces for months on end. The technology behind invisible orthodontics is highly advanced and often gives patients a much shorter treatment time, depending on their individual cases.

Benefits of this type of treatment include having teeth straightened in a generally shortened period of time, straighter teeth and alignment of your top and bottom jaws. You can also enjoy the flexibility of your braces being hidden from an untrained eye, making you feel less self-conscious when socialising or speaking in public. With removable devices you can also take them out to eat or for special occasions, so they fit around your lifestyle.

It is important to remember that straighter teeth are healthier teeth. When your bite is properly aligned and your teeth are straightened, there are less gaps and areas for food to get trapped and plaque to build up on the teeth, causing decay. In that sense, invisible orthodontics is a long-term investment in your oral health.

What are Invisalign Clear Aligners?

Invisalign is the most advanced clear aligner system in the world. Each feature is designed to reveal the smile that you deserve. Because it’s not just your smile that’s full of potential.

Life can continue as normal, as the Invisalign System discreetly does its work. You can comfortably wear your aligners for 22 hours a day. And because the aligners are removable, it’s easy to maintain your regular oral hygiene and enjoy your usual diet. As you progress, replacing your aligners every 1-2 weeks, people may notice a gradual change in your smile.

Three steps forward. No steps back

The Invisalign treatment process is as straightforward as it is technically advanced.

Once your Invisalign Provider has confirmed that you are eligible for treatment, they will take photos, X-rays and digital scans, or a dental impression, of your teeth.

2. Customised Aligner Delivery


You’ll receive a series of custom-made aligners to wear every day and change at home – on average every 1-2 weeks.

3. Regular Monitoring and Adjustments


You’ll visit your provider around every 6-8 weeks to monitor progress and receive new aligners.
