Advantages of Invisalign

Determining the suitability for Invisalign treatment largely depends on the individual’s unique orthodontic needs and personal preferences. Here are some key points to consider that might help you understand if Invisalign could be the right choice for you:

  • Eligibility Criteria: Invisalign is a versatile orthodontic solution designed to address a wide range of dental alignment issues. Whether you have mild cases like minor crowding or spacing, or more complex issues like overbite, underbite, crossbite, or deep bite, Invisalign’s advanced technology makes it a viable option for many individuals seeking orthodontic treatment in Singapore.
  • Advantages for Specific Needs: If you are seeking an orthodontic treatment that offers discretion, comfort, and flexibility, Invisalign could be an excellent choice. Its virtually invisible aligners allow for a discreet treatment process. The removable nature of the aligners ensures no dietary restrictions, and the smooth, comfortable design eliminates the discomfort typically associated with traditional braces.
  • Complex Cases: Even with more complex orthodontic issues, Invisalign can often be the solution. Its custom-tailored treatment plans and advanced technology can address a wide array of dental alignment problems, ensuring that every patient can enjoy the benefits of a straight and healthy smile.
  • Patient Involvement: A key advantage of Invisalign is that it empowers patients to be involved in the treatment planning. With Invisalign’s 3D ClinCheck Pro® technology, you can review and make adjustments to the proposed treatment plan, ensuring a clear understanding and expectation of the final outcome, even before the treatment begins.

Invisalign Procedure

Possible Risks

Invisalign is generally regarded as a safe orthodontic treatment. However, like any medical procedure, it may come with potential risks and complications.

  • Discomfort: Mild discomfort or pressure is expected when wearing new aligners, especially in the first few days. This usually subsides as your mouth adjusts.
  • Speech Changes: Some people may temporarily develop a lisp or other speech changes while acclimating to the aligners, which usually improves with time.
  • Impact on Oral Health: Poor oral hygiene can lead to cavities, gum disease or bad breath. It’s important to maintain good oral hygiene during treatment.
  • Allergic Reactions: Rarely, some patients may be allergic to the aligner material, causing inflammation or discomfort.

At our clinic in Singapore, we ensure patients are well-informed about potential risks. We take steps to mitigate these issues, like custom fitting the aligners, patient education on oral hygiene, and prompt management of any complications. Regular follow-ups allow early detection and management of issues.

Frequently Asked Questions About Invisalign Clinics in Singapore

Is Invisalign painful?

A significant advantage with Invisalign is the level of comfort throughout the process. There are no brackets and wire, so you do not feel anything pushing against your gums, lips or tongue. It is an entirely painless  process.

How long will my treatment last?

This will be dependent on your specific condition. Some Invisalign treatments take as little as ten weeks to achieve your dream smile. Others can take up to 12-14 months to achieve the desired result. One certainty is that as long as you wear your aligners, you will see great results in a relatively short time frame. You will also enjoy the process.

How exactly do aligners straighten my teeth?

Essentially, a clear aligner is made to fit on your teeth as they are right now. Then, one is made for the final position of your teeth. A few aligners will be made between the start and end of your treatment, correcting your teeth’s position a few millimetres at a time. This ensures that your teeth is not subjected to too much pressure, allowing them to remain healthy and strong.

That said, keep in mind that we are changing the position of each tooth with every aligner you wear. As long as your aligners are worn constantly, there will be a constant but very light force on each tooth to move it into the desired position gradually.

The number of aligners you need depends on how much straightening is required. It can be anywhere between 7 to 25 or 30 aligners.

Each aligner is generally worn for two weeks. During those two weeks, your teeth will shift into the position predetermined for that particular aligner. Then, we will move on to the next aligner and so on until your teeth are in the final desired position shown to you during the initial 3D mockup.

Can I use Medisave for Invisalign?

Unfortunately, you can only use Medisave typically for surgical procedures or day surgeries. If you are uncertain, give our staff at our clinic a call to check first before starting on your Invisalign treatment in Singapore.

Is Invisalign covered by insurance in Singapore?

Typically, dental insurance plans do not cover orthodontic treatments at clinics like Invisalign in Singapore and are supplementary benefits that have to be paid for separately.

Do you have to wear Invisalign forever?

Yes, you will have to do so. But the good news is that after a certain period of time, you do not need to wear it for such long hours every day.

Do teeth relapse after Invisalign?

In some cases, this can happen if your teeth move positions after the treatment or when you do not wear your retainers daily.

Cost Information

The cost of Invisalign at our clinic in Singapore depends on the complexity and duration of treatment.

Various financial options exist, including insurance coverage and Medisave claims, to help defray treatment costs. In addition, the Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS) provides subsidies for Singaporeans, which can be applicable for certain dental procedures.
