Article 6. Invisalign Aligners


What makes a beautiful smile?

-Symmetry of your teeth (particularly your front teeth)

-How straight your teeth are i.e. Not overlapping, crooked or spaced too far apart

-Tooth proportion

-Colour of your teeth

-Spaces between the tips of your teeth

-Smile width

-Gum health and gum line

-Shape, colour and fullness of lips


Straighter teeth can have many benefits for you:

-Easier to brush and clean your teeth

-Healthier teeth and gums and less chance of gum disease

-Reduced risk of teeth breakage, chipping, wearing away

-Less stress on the jaw joint


What are the benefits of Invisalign over Braces?

-Nearly Invisible allowing you to smile with confidence

-Removable – you can enjoy your favourite foods without any hassles

-Less painful – movements are gentle and gradual tooth movement is less painful

-Less doctor visits (6-8 weekly doctor visits)

-Clearer estimate of treatment duration

-Healthier teeth- as Invisalign does not prevent you from brushing and flossing your teeth effectively.



What must you do to assist in the treatment process?

-Wear aligners for 20-22 hours a day

-Getting new sets of aligners. Each new set is worn for 1-2 weeks

-Clean your aligners- rinse and brush them with water each night to keep them clean and use the Invisalign cleaning system

-Visit your dentist every 6-8 weeks

-Smile!
