Many adults who desired a straight smile were reluctant to have orthodontic treatment due to the appearance and impact that metal brackets and wires would have on their social and professional life. Being able to achieve a beautiful smile without compromising on appearance is what has led to Invisalign® invisible orthodontic therapy becoming the orthodontic treatment of choice for adults.
Invisalign® is a series of clear custom moulded aligners made using advanced 3-D computer imaging software. This enables Dr Lim to demonstrate your entire procedure progression on a computer screen before your treatment commences. Each set of aligners is replaced every couple of weeks with each new set moving your teeth a little more until they have straightened to the final position.
Unlike fixed braces Invisalign® aligners are removable so you are able to eat all your favourite foods as well as brush and floss thoroughly. Additionally as the aligners are acrylic, they are virtually invisible unless people look very closely.
You will need to visit Dr Lim about once every 6-8 weeks so he can ensure your treatment is progressing as planned. The average treatment time using Invisalign® is 9 – 15 months, although this will depend on your personal situation. Following your assessment appointment, Dr Lim is able to provide a more accurate treatment timeframe.
Using Invisalign®, you can continue to enjoy life while achieving a straight smile, and without compromising on your appearance. While Invisalign® is a popular option, clear aligners are not suitable for every situation, and therefore we will clearly explain alternative orthodontic solutions with you in order to achieve a long-term result.
