Straight teeth with no brackets, no wires, no metal…
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is the virtually invisible and hygienic alternative to braces that lets patients keep smiling during treatment. Invisalign uses a series of custom-made, clear, removable aligners that gradually move teeth towards the desired position. Invisalign is prescribed to patients through trained Invisalign dentists and only they can determine a patient’s suitability and exact treatment plan.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign uses 3D computer imaging technology to depict the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position from which a series of custom-made ‘‘aligners’’ are produced. Each aligner moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about two weeks, then replaced by the next in the series until the final desired position is achieved.

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?
There are four primary benefits of Invisalign:
- Invisalign is nearly invisible — you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
- Invisalign is removable — you can eat and drink what you want in treatment; you can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
- Invisalign is comfortable — there are no metal brackets or wires to cause mouth irritation: no metal or wires also means you spend less time in the doctor’s chair getting adjustments.
- Invisalign allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you start — so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
Does insurance cover Invisalign?
If your health insurance policy has orthodontic coverage, Invisalign should be covered to a similar extent as conventional braces as Invisalign is normally prescribed for a full course of orthodontic treatment. However, as medical benefits differ significantly from policy to policy, you should check with your specific health fund.
