Benefits of Invisalign over traditional braces
Invisalign is virtually invisible.
This means you can always smile with confidence, as compared to traditional braces where the wires and metal brackets can be seen.
Invisalign aligners are made with SmartTrack® flexible material, making it super easy to remove and put on, unlike braces which are fixed. Now, you can enjoy your favourite food any time you want.
SmartStage® and SmartForce® technologies ensure there will only be gradual and gentle yet effective teeth movement throughout your treatment, as compared to braces which may irritate and cause pain.
Unlike braces where you have to visit your doctor every 3-4 weeks, Invisalign frees up your schedule with visits to the clinic only once every 6-8 weeks.
Invisalign treatment allows you to visualize every stage of the treatment, giving you a clearer picture of the treatment duration. Braces can only give you an approximate duration at the beginning of the treatment.
Since Invisalign aligners are removable, you can still floss and brush your teeth as per normal whereas braces may make it difficult for you to clean in between the metal brackets which can result in plaque accumulation and poor oral hygiene.
Who is suitable for Invisalign?
Both teens and adults are suitable for Invisalign treatment. Invisalign can treat most common orthodontic problems. However, your suitability for Invisalign treatment can only be assessed after examination and consultation.

Invisalign for Teens and Children!
Who could be a candidate for Invisalign First clear aligners?
As children grow, their smiles grow with them. And even with mixed dentition, it may be the perfect time for children aged 6 to 10 to start orthodontic treatment. This is known as Phase 1 or Interceptive Orthodontic treatment.
At this stage, developmental problems detected early can be managed with early interceptive treatment so that they will not continue to progress and become more severe.
Invisalign First aligner treatment is designed for Interceptive Orthodontic treatment with predictable results. It provides a positive experience while addressing the unique needs of growing children.
