Invisalign is a world-renowned brand for ‘Invisible Braces’ Treatment. Utilising digital technology, we are able to provide accurate digital imaging for the assessment and consultation of our clients’ need for treatment.
Invisalign is almost unnoticeable. This helps to improve the look of metallic braces whilst speaking or smiling.
The convenience of being able to take off the trays to clean your teeth, helps enhance oral hygiene.
Having no wires, and being a flat polymeric material, these are also more comfortable as there it will minimise discomfort to the gum and soft tissues.
The Invisalign trays are to be removed only during eating and tooth brushing. Unlike traditional braces, the teeth can be cleaned much more efficiently and this will reduce the chance for tooth decay and gum problems during the treatment process.
A detailed consult will be performed which will include dental photographs, impressions of the jaws, dental radiographs which may include a Cone Beam Digital CT Scan.
Acceptance of treatment
Once treatment is accepted, we will send the case to Invisalign HQ in the United States for the production of your customised trays.
After 6-8 weeks, your trays will be ready.
Every 2 weeks, the set of trays will need to be changed. You will be expected to wear the trays for 20-22 hours a day, taking them off only for eating and brushing.
End of treatment
Once all your trays have been worn, the end of treatment will be just around the corner! You may be expected to wear your retainers to keep the position of the teeth as it was when the treatment ended.
Feel free to use this complimentary tool for us to make a preliminary assessment and give brief recommendation for suitability for treatment. One of our dentists will evaluate this and get back to you within 48Hours. Try out your skills at taking a ‘dental selfie’!
Take note of the following to getting better photos:
Follow the picture guides and take the photos as close to what is shown.

Here are some tips for taking better photos so that a better assessment can be made:
Ensure your camera has a resolution of at least 2megapixels.
Use auto mode for focus, white balance and exposure settings.
Use a plain light background .
Ensure lighting is sufficient and use flash function if necessary.
Take note that this is only a preliminary assessment and not a clinical diagnosis. Should you decide to go ahead with the treatment, we would still require you to come in for a clinical assessment and diagnosis.
