A study conducted by RealSelf found that Invisalign™ aligners were the leading non-surgical teeth-straightening beauty treatment.
Dental problems such as crooked teeth, gaps, underbite, overbite and crossbites can be corrected through this treatment. Whether your teeth are too far apart or are simply overcrowded, Invisalign™ can be used to correct your teeth.
Queensway Dental Care creates a personalised treatment plan for you, addressing your specific clinical requirements. With the assistance of 3D imaging technology, the Dentist can guide you through the various stages of correction – from the preliminary stages to the eventual outcome.
Based on your bite impressions, customised aligners are developed. Multiple sets are used during treatment. At each stage, they are altered to accommodate the resulting progress.
The aligners apply the optimum amount of pressure in the required places, causing the teeth to progressively drift into position. With Invisalign™, realignment occurs gradually, with controlled movements. The movement can be horizontal, vertical, and, in some cases, even a complete rotation.
Being nearly invisible, Invisalign™ enables you to correct the misalignment in your teeth in a virtually unnoticeable manner. They are fully removable, allowing you to retain your regular brushing and flossing techniques, resulting in better oral health. The detachable feature also reduces the restrictions on consumption of food products during the treatment. Their custom manufacturing and patented material make them beneficial to soft tissues.

What is Invisalign™?
Invisalign™ provides a virtually invisible treatment option for straightening teeth using custom-fit clear aligners, which gradually bring the teeth into the correct position. Innovative 3D imaging technology designs a personalised plan for the different stages of treatment.
What material is used to make Invisalign™ aligners?
SmartTrack® is a flexible, medical grade plastic containing no latex, BPA, or gluten. It has been developed exclusively for the Invisalign™ treatment.
Is there a preferred age group for Invisalign™?
Invisalign™ provides a discreet method to straighten teeth for both adults and adolescents.
What is the duration of the treatment?
Queensway Dental Care will create a personalised plan for you based on your dental needs. Your case requirements and consistency in wearing the aligners will determine the length of your treatment.
Will the Invisalign™ treatment be painful?
Invisalign™ aligners apply gentle pressure to induce movement in the tooth. As a result, you may initially feel slight discomfort when the set of aligners is changed. However, this is only temporary and is an indication of the progress of the treatment. Our team at Queensway Dental Care will make the procedure as pain-free as possible.
Are the aligners removable?
Yes. The aligners can be removed while brushing, flossing, and eating. Although the aligners may be taken out for special occasions and short breaks, it is recommended that they are worn for 20 to 22 hours a day to achieve optimal results.
How should I maintain the hygiene of my Invisalign™ aligners?
Brushing and rinsing the aligners with lukewarm water cleans them. You could also use special cleansing tablets. After every meal, you should brush your teeth and then wear your aligners.
