What is Invisalign?

The Invisalign System is a virtually invisible treatment that uses an innovative approach to effectively straighten teeth. Invisalign treatment uses a series of custom-made removable aligners with unique SmartForce technology that gradually moves your teeth to the ideal position.

How does the Invisalign System work?

Here's an overview of the Invisalign treatment process:


Initially, we will take photos, X-rays, and digital scans or a dental impression to help create your treatment plan.


The maker of Invisalign clear aligners will then use these records, along with the treatment prescribed by your doctor to create a customised 3D treatment plan just for you. With the treatment plan, you'll be able to see the final position your teeth are predicted to reach after treatment. This treatment plan is used to develop your customised aligners and also estimate the likely length of your treatment.


The customised aligners will be manufactured and shipped to Bays Dental


Your series of custom-made aligners will be given to you (typically 3-4 sets at a time) for you to wear everyday and change them at home every 2 weeks.


You'll be visiting your Invisalign-trained doctor at Bays Dental, approximately every 6-8 weeks to monitor the progress of your treatment and receive the next series of aligners.


After you've finished your Invisalign aligner treatment, you will need to use retainers to help make sure the new position of your teeth is maintained.
