Advantages of Invisalign treatment over braces

Nearly invisible

Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible. This means you can always smile with confidence, as compared to traditional braces where the wires and metal brackets can be seen.


Invisalign aligners are made with SmartTrack flexible material, making it super easy to remove and put on, unlike braces which are fixed. Now, you can enjoy your  favourite food any time you want.

Less pain1

SmartStage and SmartForce technologies ensure there will only be gradual and gentle teeth movement throughout your treatment, as compared to braces which may irritate and cause pain.

Less emergency visits

With Invisalign clear aligners you are less likely to need an emergency appointment and won’t have disruptions from broken wires or anything getting caught in your braces2.

Clearer timelines

Our proprietary ClinCheck software allows you to visualise every stage of your Invisalign treatment, helping to give you a clearer picture of the treatment duration. With braces your treating doctor will give an indication of approximate duration at the beginning of treatment.

Easier to maintain oral health

Since Invisalign aligners are removable, you can still floss and brush your teeth as per normal whereas braces may make it difficult for you to clean in between the metal brackets which can result in plaque accumulation and poor oral hygiene.

How your Invisalign treatment plan is made.

Even before your aligners are created, a lot of powerful technology goes into shaping your new smile. Combine that with your doctor's expertise, and you get a precise digital plan just for you.

How are my custom aligners made?

Your clear aligners are created using industry-leading technology based on your customised treatment plan.

Precise and personal

If your Invisalign provider uses an iTero Element scanner, they can quickly capture an accurate 3D image of your teeth - no need to messy physical impressions.

Made from more

Your custom aligners are created with comfort in mind. Our SmartTrack material was engineered specifically for the Invisalign system to ensure a great fit.

Trimmed for you

Invisalign aligners and retainers are trimmed based on each patient’s gum line to provide optimal patient comfort and aesthetics.

Checked for quality

When your smile is on the line, quality is everything. Each one of your unique clear aligners is examined to meet our high quality standards.
