FAQs about Invisalign

What is Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign is a revolutionary, innovative orthodontic treatment used to gradually straighten teeth that utilises a series of clear, custom-made aligners without the need for traditional metal braces.

These aligners are made from a BPA-free, smooth plastic material that is virtually invisible when in use in the mouth, making them more socially acceptable and an ideal choice for individuals seeking a more discreet alternative to braces.

What Can You Eat While Having Invisalign?

One of the many advantages of Invisalign is that it allows you to continually enjoy your favourite foods without the dietary restrictions of traditional braces.

As Invisalign aligners are removable, you can simply take them out before meals and snacks, therefore allowing you to enjoy a wide variety of foods. 

  • You can enjoy most foods while undergoing Invisalign, however, it is best to stick to healthy foods and drinks and avoid any sugary items as these may lodge in between your teeth and aligners which may lead to tooth decay and/ or gum inflammation
  • Healthy Snacks: Snack on nutritious foods like fruits, vegetables, cheese, and nuts, which can help support your overall oral health as well as good oral health.

What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?

Numerous benefits to Invisalign make it an enticing option for individuals seeking orthodontic treatment, including:

  • Discreet Appearance:
    Invisalign aligners are virtually inconspicuous when worn, allowing you to straighten your teeth inconspicuously unlike traditional metal braces.
  • Comfortable Fit:
    Invisalign aligners are made to fit to snugly fit your teeth in comfort, with smooth edges that would not irritate your cheeks or gums like traditional braces.
  • Removable Design:
    Unlike traditional braces, which are fixed in place through the duration of treatment, Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing you to drink, eat, brush, and clean interdentally/ floss in comfort.
  • Predictable Results:
    Invisalign uses advanced computer imaging technology to generate a customised treatment plan personalised to your unique dental needs, ensuring predictable and efficient results.
  • Easier cleaning ability:
    With straighter teeth, it will make life much easier to clean into those hard-to-reach crowded areas making tooth brushing and interdental cleaning much easier. 
  • Improved Oral Health:
    By aligning your teeth with Invisalign, you can improve your overall dental health and reduce the risk of dental issues such as cavities, gum disease, and uneven wear.
Invisalign offers a convenient, discreet, and effective solution for achieving a straighter, more confident smile.
