The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a complex joint connecting the jawbone and the skull. It plays an important role in the movement of the jaw and is often associated with neck pain and headaches.
The Invisalign System is a virtually invisible treatment that uses an innovative approach to gently yet effectively straighten your teeth. Through a series of custom-made removable aligners made with unique SmartForce technology, the Invisalign system gradually and predictably moves your teeth to your desired position.
How does the Invisalign system work?
Initially, your Invisalign-trained doctor will take photos, X-rays, and digital scans or a dental impression to help create your treatment plan.
The maker of Invisalign clear aligners will then use these records, along with the treatment prescribed by your doctor to create a customised 3D treatment plan just for you. With the treatment plan, you’ll be able to see the final position your teeth are predicted to reach after treatment. This treatment plan is used to develop your customised aligners and also estimate the likely length of your treatment.
The customised aligners will be manufactured and shipped to your clinic.
Your series of custom-made aligners will be given to you (typically 3-4 sets at a time) for you to wear everyday and change them at home approximately every 2 weeks.
You’ll be visiting your Invisalign-trained doctor approximately every 6-8 weeks to monitor the progress of your treatment and receive the next series of aligners.
After you’ve finished your Invisalign aligner treatment, you may need to use retainers to help make sure the new position of your teeth is maintained.
The advantages of the Invisalign treatment:
- Invisalign aligners are removable, so it is easier to clean your teeth and maintain your oral health during treatment.
- Invisalign treatment may give you visible results from as early as the first month of treatment. Even better, most people won’t know you’re going through treatment when you’re wearing Invisalign clear aligners because they are virtually invisible!
- Got a special occasion coming up? No problem, just take your aligners out for the event and pop them back in when you’re done.
- With Invisalign clear aligners, you don’t have to worry about doing the sports you want to do. Invisalign treatment is a suitable treatment option for an active lifestyle.
- Are you deciding whether to straighten your teeth but feel worried about the discomfort? With innovative SmartForce and SmartTrack
technologies, the Invisalign System straightens your teeth predictably and more comfortably.
- Invisalign treatment is ideal for your busy schedule, with doctor visits only approximately every 6-8 weeks. That means you can spend more time doing the things that are important to you.
How Invisalign Works for Adults, Teens, and Kids
Invisalign is suitable for adults, teens, and kids with mild to moderate orthodontic issues. The process typically begins with a consultation with an Invisalign-trained dentist or orthodontist, who will examine your teeth and bite to determine if Invisalign is right for you.
If you’re a candidate for Invisalign, your dentist or orthodontist will take impressions of your teeth and use them to create a digital treatment plan. This plan will show the movement of your teeth at each stage of treatment. From there, a series of custom-made aligners will be created for you, each designed to gradually shift your teeth into their final position.
For adults, treatment typically takes between 12 and 18 months. For teens, treatment usually takes between 9 to 15 months and for kids it varies depending on the case and can take less than a year. You will be required to wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before moving on to the next set.

Many think that Invisalign aligners only work for minor teeth straightening issues, but the Invisalign System can also be used to treat a range of moderate to severe teeth straightening issues such as:
This occurs when the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth, and can lead to painful jaw irritation.
This occurs when the lower teeth protrude past the front teethand can prevent normal function of your front teeth or molars.
This occurs when there is simply a lack of room within your jaw for all your teeth to fit normally, which can lead to plaque accumulation.
This is when your upper and lower teeth are unable to make physical contact when the jaws are closed, which can make chewing and even talking difficult.
This occurs when there is considerable space between at least two of your teeth, and can cause gum problems.
This can occur when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned, and can cause wear and tear leading to bone
