  • Overlapping teeth

The Invisalign Process

If you are a good candidate for treatment, we take impressions of your teeth. The lab at Invisalign uses our impressions to design your aligners. Then, you wear each aligner based on your dentist’s timeline and instructions—usually two weeks—before moving on to the next.

Periodically, you visit our dental clinic to make sure your teeth are lining up according to plan.

With Invisalign, you can enjoy a discreet orthodontic experience and remove your aligners to eat and clean your teeth.

After treatment, we provide a custom retainer to prevent your teeth in their upright and straight positions. However, your dentist recommends keeping them in at least 22 hours per day.

Deciding to straighten crooked teeth is an important one, and we heartily support it! Besides giving you a smile that can make you proud, orthodontics with Invisalign may also play a role in better oral health.

Invisalign is a series of comfortable, clear aligners made of smooth plastic. They are customised to fit your teeth, and they move these teeth into position across the treatment timeline.

Invisalign may correct overcrowded teeth, close gaps between teeth, and help align your bite for better oral health.

Of course, Invisalign requires a consultation, including a thorough exam and talking to you about your smile objectives that your dentist in Avondale determines how long Invisalign will take.

How Long Does Invisalign Take in Auckland?

For minor issues, Invisalign can take six months, but you may need to wear aligners for one to two years for more complex cases. The good part is that you can remove your aligners to brush and floss—or to enjoy your meals. They are also lightweight and may be easier to wear compared with other options.

Straitening your teeth with this system can certainly enhance your smile just in time for a future wedding or life event, but there may be other benefits that you haven’t considered.

Non-Cosmetic Invisalign Benefits

Simply, straight teeth are often healthier teeth because they are easier to clean efficiently with your toothbrush and dental floss. When teeth do not overlap, there are fewer places for bacteria to hide during your oral care routine.

An aligned bite may also reduce wear on specific teeth relied on to do most of the chewing.
