Invisalign is an invisible orthodontics technique that corrects the positioning of your teeth to work towards an improved smile. Special trays are custom made for your teeth from clear plastic, making them invisible during wear.
Your Invisalign treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every two weeks for the next set of aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move, little by little, week by week, until they have straightened to the final position prescribed by your dental practitioner.
What’s more, a virtual 3D treatment plan (ClinCheck© treatment plan) shows the series of movements your teeth will go through over the course of the treatment. This allows you to see upfront what your teeth are expected to look like at the end of the treatment. From the results of the ClinCheck treatment plan, your custom-made, clear aligners are produced especially for you.
There is more than one type of Invisalign system:
Full – This system utilises the full potential of the Invisalign system. It is used to treat a varied range of mild to moderate orthodontics problems.
i7 – the i7 aligners are used for very minor spacing, crowding and orthodontic relapse issues. Up to 7 aligners will be used over a course of three months. You can choose between lower or upper arch treatment or both.
Lite – Invisalign Lite aligners are cost-effective treatment options for patients with minor orthodontic problems, affecting only the front teeth. This treatment will be limited to 14 aligners and treatment will usually take around 6 months. Again, you can choose between both or just one arch.
Teen – Teen Invisalign aligners have additional elements added to the brace system, specifically made for teenagers. This treatment includes compliance indicators and dental growth development predictions for during treatment.
The cost of your Invisalign treatment can vary depending on the severity of your case. We recommend booking an appointment so that your dentist can review your teeth and give you a treatment and cost breakdown. Here at Manor House Dental, we also have finance options available to help you fund your treatment.
Invisalign treatment uses clear, plastic aligners. These aligners are customised for each patient after completing a 3D scan of their mouth and teeth. These aligners will move your teeth in small steps until your desired position is reached. Aligners should be changed every few months to a new fitting.
Made of smooth plastic, Invisalign is known to be a lot more comfortable than traditional braces. There are no sharp edges or wiring included that are known for causing discomfort. Made especially to fit your teeth and mouth, Invisalign braces should fit snug to your teeth, making them barely noticeable after time.
Invisalign aligners are moulded from clear plastic. This makes the aligners unnoticeable during wear. This makes them a great option for people who are conscious of the appearance of braces. Adults, teens, and young adults who want to live life without the brackets and wires associated with traditional braces would also benefit from Invisalign aligners.
Because Invisalign braces are removable, this means the trays themselves can be cleaned to avoid plaque build-up. The removable tray also allows you to access all of your teeth fully when brushing for effective cleaning. A clean mouth is a healthy mouth. The better your oral health is during your treatment, the better results you will see for your end smile.
One of the worst parts about teeth straightening is food restrictions. With many orthodontic options, some of your favourite foods are off-limits. This is not an issue when you choose Invisalign. You can take out your aligners to eat and enjoy whatever foods you want without any discomfort or hassle.
Invisalign aligners only need to be maintained every 6 weeks on average. Other teeth straightening options can take a lot more time and many more appointments. Invisalign requires fewer appointments meaning you can spend less time at the dentist.
Straight teeth are better for your gums and overall dental health. Gaps and crowding can make it hard to successfully clean your teeth. Teeth in awkward positions caused by gaps and crowding are more prone to plaque build-up as your brush can’t reach them. This also makes teeth more prone to decay. Better dental health means better overall health.
Invisalign leads to beautiful straight teeth creating a wonderful smile. The removable retainers mean that you can better care for your teeth during treatment, which will show in the end results.

What Are Invisalign Aligners Made of?
Invisalign aligners are made using a flexible plastic. This is a specific type of plastic called SmartTrack®, which was specifically designed for the Invisalign aligner system. This material makes aligners clear and mostly unnoticeable during treatment.
Are Straight Teeth Guaranteed After Invisalign Treatment?
Every smile is unique. During your consultation at the start of your Invisalign treatment, your dentist will explain exactly what Invisalign aligners can do for your smile and give you a rough time scale of how long treatment will take. We can not guarantee a particular outcome from treatment however, we recommend sharing your treatment goals with your dentist. This way we can ensure we are offering the best treatment for your desired results.
How Do Invisalign Aligners Straighten Teeth?
After your consultation appointment, a unique treatment plan will be created for your specific desires. This treatment plan will map out the exact movements your teeth will make during the treatment process. Your aligners will then be designed to apply to right amount of pressure, to the right place, at the right time, based on your treatment plan.
Who is Invisalign Treatment For?
Invisalign aligners work great for adults and teens. Due to technological advancements, most teeth-straightening and bite issues can be solved with Invisalign.
I’ve Had Braces Before, Can I Still Get Invisalign Aligners?
Yes. If you have previously had braces but are still unhappy with the alignment of your teeth, or your teeth have moved since your treatment, Invisalign aligners are a great option.
Is Invisalign Treatment Painful?
Invisalign aligners move your teeth by applying gentle constant force. Some patients may experience some mild discomfort when first starting their treatment and again when aligners are changed. This should only last for a few days.
Does Smoking Stain Invisalign Aligners?
Smoking is not recommended during your treatment as it can stain your aligners.
Whats the Best Way to Clean my Aligners?
The best way to care for your aligners is by brushing them and then rinsing them in lukewarm water regularly. You can also get special crystals to help clean your aligners. It is also important to note that teeth should always be cleaned after eating, before your aligners are reinserted.
