Traditional braces may not suit everyone and for this reason Invisalign has proven very popular at the Neem Tree. This unique, highly advanced form of brace treatment involves the use of soft comfortable plastic aligners which overlie the surfaces of the teeth.

Invisalign is the perfect solution for patients who require subtle and slight adjustments to a few teeth in order to improve their smile discreetly and quickly. Moreover, these aligners are clear which make them virtually imperceptible compared to traditional wire systems, giving you the option to straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.

As a patient, you will have to come in now and then to have a new retainer fitted to ensure the necessary tooth movements are taking place. Whether it’s just one or two slightly misaligned teeth, feel free to come in and discuss what options are available to you.

The Invisalign® dental braces system functions much like traditional braces in that it shifts teeth into their correct position.

However, Invisalign® braces are unique in that they use clear, transparent aligner trays which are virtually unnoticeable. This is in stark contrast to traditional metal brackets and wires which are attached to your teeth and clearly visible.

Pros and Cons of Removable Braces

There are several advantages to using the Invisalign clear retainers instead of traditional metal braces.

  • Removable braces or retainers, such as Invisalign, can be taken out whenever the wearer wishes to remove them. This makes it far easier to eat and to clean teeth afterwards.
  • Clear aligners are far more discreet to wear than traditional fixed braces. This means that wearers tend to be less self-conscious when wearing them.
  • The treatment provided can be more flexible.

There are also drawbacks to using removable braces or aligners which should be taken into account.

  • Removable braces such as Invisalign can often be more expensive than traditional fixed braces.
  • Although the ability to remove Invisalign braces is one of their biggest advantages, this does mean that the success of the treatment can depend heavily on the patient. If they are removed from the teeth for too long or too frequently, this can severely hamper the success of the treatment.
  • Aligners are not always suitable for patients who have more complex orthodontic needs.
  • For these reasons, complete success is harder to guarantee with removable braces.

Our specialists at the Neem Tree can discuss your needs with you and determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment.

Invisalign First

Invisalign First is an innovative, new procedure that can help achieve real results early on in a child’s life. It is no longer the case that children need to wait until their teens and pre-teens to address issues that may arise with the alignment of their teeth. With Invisalign First, you can improve your smile as it grows and develops.  Invisalign First is designed specifically for the smaller smile. Treating teeth at an early age is known as Phase 1 Treatment. Even with their baby teeth, issues can start to appear, and we can start to tackle alignment issues in Phase 1 without having to wait for the baby teeth to be replaced. The goal with Phase 1 treatment is to make room for the incoming teeth, and improve the alignment of existing teeth, by developing young jaws and arches.

Phase 1 treatment can:

  • Stop existing issues with a child’s bite from deteriorating.
  • Help alleviate issues with teeth straightening.
  • Improve your child’s developing smile.
  • Help with habits such as thumb-sucking and tongue thrusting.
  • Help shorten the time needed in Phase 2 treatment as they get older.

Previously, Phase 1 treatment was accomplished through traditional orthodontic appliances, such as braces. However, Invisalign First uses new, innovative technology that provide your child with better treatment options. Invisalign First uses clear aligners that fit right over the teeth to bring them back into alignment. The aligners are designed to treat a broad range of dental issues in children. Problems around spacing, crowding and narrow dental arches can all be addressed using Invisalign. One of the most obvious drawbacks with traditional metal braces is the simple fact that they cannot be removed. This can make even simple jobs like brushing teeth and keeping them clean a real task. Not to mention, they can be unsightly. Invisalign aligners are completely removable at will. They can be taken out before meals, allowing children to keep drinking and eating the foods they love, without having to worry about how it will affect their braces. Being removable, your child can also maintain their regular dental health routines, they do not have to learn new ways of brushing and flossing around permanent, metal braces.

The Invisalign Process

The first step is to take an impression of your child’s teeth. This can either be done traditionally using a mould, or by taking a digital scan. We can then digitally map the progress of your child’s teeth, allowing you to see the predicted results. The aligners are then custom-made for your child’s dental structure. This makes them smooth, comfortable and easy to remove. They are also designed to allow space for new teeth to come in. Using a series of small, calculated adjustments to the aligner, we can gradually straighten the teeth over time.

Invisalign Teen

Invisalign Teen uses new, innovative technology to gradually improve your smile and address straightening issues without the need for traditional, metal braces. Many teenagers will need orthodontic treatment in their life, but no one is thrilled at the prospect of filling their mouth with metal for years at a time! With Invisalign, there is now a clear alternative to traditional braces that is easier, quicker, cheaper and looks better!

Invisalign aligners are made from a clear and smooth plastic, meaning they are removable, easy to clean and hard to spot! A lot of people with braces become very conscious of their smile; with Invisalign, most people won’t even notice you have them. They are also custom-made to fit your teeth using SmartTrack material, allowing them to control the movement of teeth. Removable retainers give you far more freedom than the traditional metal brace, and even some of the newer options on the market. Being able to remove your braces before meals means you can keep eating and drinking your favourite foods. You do not have to worry about certain foods becoming stuck in metal brackets. You can also maintain your usual dental hygiene routine. There is no need to have to re-learn how to brush and floss around clunky metal braces, simply remove the aligner and you can brush and floss as normal. You can also play sports and musical instruments without needing to worry about braces. You do not need to worry about metal braces snapping during a game or cutting yourself on a wire while playing an instrument. Invisalign is discreet, safe
and won’t get in the way of life.

The Invisalign Process

The first step is to take impressions of your teeth. This can be done with digital imagery, or through a traditional mould. We can then digitally map the predicted progress of your teeth, allowing you to see the intended results. Once they have been designed, each aligner is custom built for your teeth, making them comfortable and easy to remove. You will receive a series of retainers that you will wear every day and replace regularly (about every 1-2 weeks). By making small adjustments to the aligners, we can gradually straighten teeth by fixing gaps and overcrowding.
