Choose Invisalign for virtually invisible orthodontic treatment
You have probably heard about Invisalign, the popular clear aligner system giving people straighter teeth all around the world. Invisalign clear aligners avoid the hassles of bulky metal braces, so get in touch to find out if you are suitable today.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign are the pioneers of the clear aligner industry. The aligners work by using a series of clear aligner trays that apply pressure to the teeth to make them shift into straighter positions. As you progress to each tray, it is fabricated slightly differently to account for the smile changes of the previous tray.
Every two weeks, you will progress onto the following tray to replace your current tray.

What is the process for getting Invisalign?
You will begin with an initial consultation at Oracare where we will assess your oral health and medical history. This will allow us to know if you are suitable for Invisalign treatment or not.
If you are a suitable patient, we will take 3D digital images of your mouth which will be used in ClinCheck software to develop a customised treatment journey. ClinCheck allows for the movements of each tooth to be shifted individually and will display the entire treatment journey in animations. Once our team and you are happy with the treatment, the treatment journey and 3D scans will be sent off to Invisalign.
Invisalign will fabricate your aligners from SmartTrack material, which is a flexible plastic delivering comfort and controlled tooth movements.
You will return to Oracare once we receive your aligners back and you will receive the first three trays. Our team will ensure they fit properly and that you understand what is expected of you. Your straightening process begins here!
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
The longevity of treatment varies per patient as it depends on severity of the bite issues. However, you can expect Invisalign treatment to take about 12 to 24 months to fully straighten your smile.
The success of your treatment depends on your compliance. Since clear aligners are removable, it’s up to you to wear your aligners for the recommended 22 hours per day and only take them out to eat, drink and clean your mouth.
How often are orthodontic appointments with Invisalign?
You will return to Oracare every six weeks for a check-up appointment and to receive your new sets of aligner trays.
During these appointments our team will ensure your treatment is going to plan and your smile is becoming straighter.
How to clean Invisalign aligners?
You must remove your aligners to clean them and your mouth. It’s important to clean your aligners and your teeth before you reinsert them.
Follow the instructions of our team and make sure to clean your aligners gently with a soft toothbrush daily. Make sure to also rinse your aligners thoroughly and use the Invisalign cleaning system and crystals to ensure your aligners stay fresh and in good condition.
