Clinic 95 offers lots of cosmetic solutions to dental issues.  One of these is the: Clear aligner system from Invisalign®.  Here, our Invisalign advisors answer the most common questions about the process.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a clear alternative to braces designed with you in mind. It gives you the smile you've always wanted, without the pain and anxiety associated with metal braces.

To help you get a more beautiful smile, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable, custom-made aligners to gradually move the teeth into their desired position. These aligners are virtually invisible, comfortable to wear and easy to remove. You can simply take them out for special occasions and you will brush and floss as normal throughout your treatment. Invisalign is a modern and hygienic way to straighten teeth.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign is a virtually invisible way to straighten teeth.  It consists of a series of custom-made, mouth guard-like clear plastic aligners. The aligners are removable and are replaced every two weeks.

  • Using advanced 3D computer-imaging technology, Invisalign depicts the complete treatment plan based on the orthodontist's Invisalign prescription, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position.
  • A series of clear aligners are custom-made for you to move the teeth little by little.
  • Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, gradually moving towards the projected final position.
  • The Invisalign treatment time will be determined by the orthodontist and is based on your specific needs.
