Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. The aligners are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You simply pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete and you achieve the confident smile that you’ve always wanted. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth. So whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted since wearing braces, you’ll have a new reason to smile.
During your initial examination, Dr. Creaven will decide if Invisalign is right for you. She will write a treatment plan and take an impression of your teeth. This is submitted to Invisalign and using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign carefully translates your doctor’s instructions into a series of precisely customised aligners. You then wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, moving your teeth, gradually – week by week, millimeter by millimeter – until you’ve achieved the intended result: straighter teeth.

Thousands of doctors are treating patients with Invisalign. It works for a wide range of people whose teeth are too crowded or have spaces between them, as well as for those whose teeth may have shifted after having worn braces in their youth.
Invisalign only works while you’re wearing the aligners. It’s recommended that you wear your aligners full-time, day and night, except to eat, brush and floss your teeth – or as directed by your doctor.
The duration of treatment depends on the severity of your case, which determines the number of aligners you need. However, the average is about 12 months, but only your doctor can determine the length of your treatment.
As with traditional braces, the cost will be based on the complexity of your case and the length of treatment. Prices start at €2,500.
