Invisalign

Achieve your ideal smile while living the life you love

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a globally recognised clear aligner system that has proven to be effective for correcting most types of teeth conditions and complexities. The aligners are virtually invisible, soft, comfortable and removable, which means you can continue eating your favourite food, and playing sports and musical instruments.

Invisalign uses a 3D computerised imaging software (ClinCheck®) to accurately simulate your teeth movement from start to end. This system is backed by its clinically proven record of straightening *9 million patients’ teeth worldwide.

Malocclusions that Invisalign can fix

Malocclusions refer to having crooked teeth or a ‘’poor bite’’ such that the upper teeth do not line up perfectly with the lower teeth.

Invisalign is able to correct a wide range of teeth alignment problems including overcrowding, overjet, underbite, crossbite, open bite and spacing. 

Find out the differences between Invisalign and braces.

  • Overcrowding

    Overcrowding is when there is insufficient room in your jaw for your teeth to fit normally.

    Your teeth can bunch up, overlap, twist, or get pushed to the front or back.

  • Overjet

    An excessive overjet, also known as buck teeth, is when your upper front teeth extend too far horizontally over your lower front teeth.

    This is not to be confused with an overbite, which is a vertical overlap of the lower teeth by the upper.

  • Underbite

    An underbite is when your lower teeth and jaw protrude in front of the upper teeth.

    Severe cases may cause difficulty chewing food or challenges when speaking.

  • Crossbite

    A crossbite is when some of your upper teeth sit behind your lower teeth.

    This may lead to abnormal tooth wear and chipping.

  • Open Bite

    An open bite is when your upper and lower teeth do not touch when your mouth is closed.

    This may affect your appearance and cause speech problems like having a lisp.

  • Spacing

    Spacing is when there is a gap between two or more of your teeth.

    It may cause speech problems and food can get stuck easily.

Why Invisalign at i.DENTAL™?

Invisalign Dedicated Clinic

In 2014, i.DENTAL was appointed by Align Technology as the Invisalign Dedicated Clinic in Singapore. And as an Invisalign Dedicated Clinic, we are committed to bringing new and better solutions for our patients. 

The sheer hard work coupled with our accumulated experience have allowed us to attain our level of proficiency and skill. We strive to uphold this standard by continuously challenging ourselves to keep abreast of evolving treatment techniques and technology.

  • Black Diamond Provider

    We have achieved the Black Diamond Invisalign provider tier for 6 years (2014 – 2017 and 2019 – 2020), having completed more than 450 cases annually. We are also proud to be a Blue Diamond Invisalign Provider in Singapore in 2018, with 750 Invisalign cases completed. 

    To date, we have completed over 3,500 Invisalign cases!

  • Digital Dentistry

    At i.DENTAL, we strongly believe in using digital or computer-aided dentistry to improve the dental experience for all our patients.

    This includes using iTero scanner to get a 3D model of your teeth instead of using mould. Digital x-rays systems are adopted which emits lower dosage of radiation to produce the x-rays instantly. 

    Dental Monitoring is also introduced for our Invisalign patients which  allows our dentists to track your Invisalign progress and reach out to you more promptly if they find that your aligners are not fitting well.

A detailed Invisalign treatment process at i.DENTAL

Initial consultation

You will kickstart your Invisalign journey by having a consultation with our dentists so that we can understand your needs and concerns for your treatment.

An oral examination,  x-ray scans, 3D images of your teeth using the iTero Element Scanner and photos of your dental and facial profile will be taken as part of your diagnostics records.

  • 2nd consultation

    Our dentists will go through your diagnostic records in detail with you so you can better understand your teeth condition. 

    We will then provide you with the available options, prices and duration of these treatments as well as a simulation of what your teeth will look like after Invisalign.

  • Customised Invisalign treatment plan

    Once you are ready to embark on the Invisalign journey, our dentists will customise an Invisalign ClinCheck®* plan for you. 

    Through this software, you will be able to see the expected movement of your teeth at each stage from the start to the end of your treatment even before it begins.

  • Invisalign treatment begins

    In 4-6 weeks, your custom-made Invisalign aligners will be ready and issued to you. Our dentist will then guide you on how to wear your aligners properly.

    Aligners have to be changed every 10-14 days and worn for at least 20-22 hours every day.

  • Progress checks with Dental Monitoring

    Dental Monitoring** uses AI technology; you can upload photos to the smartphone app so that our dentists can monitor your treatment on a weekly basis. 

    This allows a reduction in the number of  physical follow-up appointments (from once every 6-8 weeks to once every 8-12 weeks or even longer).

  • Completion of Invisalign treatment

    At the end of your treatment, your attachments will be removed and your teeth will be cleaned prior to a final iTero scan to manufacture the post-treatment retainers.

  • Maintaining your smile

    Maintain your new smile by wearing retainers to bed every night. We provide a range of retainers for you to choose from – fixed or removable retainers (i.e. clear, Hawley or Vivera). 

    If you have just completed your Invisalign, we will recommend you to go with Vivera retainers which is manufactured by Invisalign. According to Align Technology, itts material is at least 30% stronger and twice as durable as other leading clear retainer materials.

*3D simulation video of the ‘before’ and ‘after’ of your teeth-straightening process, including an estimation of the number of aligners you will need.

**This is an optional service. For a small additional fee, you gain access to a mobile app through which your dentist can remotely monitor your progress. This improves the convenience of your treatment.

Types of Invisalign Plans Available*

This is the regular Invisalign plan that is designed for individuals who need greater teeth movements.

Certain cases, such as crowding and spacing, tend to be more complex. Thus, they require more time and as many aligners as needed to reach the end goal.

The moderate plan is meant for less complex cases of crowding or spacing.

This includes up to 26 sets of aligners, and is hence, only prescribed if your dentist believes your ideal smile can be achieved by then.

 

 

The Lite plan only includes up to 14 sets of aligners. It is suitable for mild crowding and spacing cases with no extraction required.

 

 

The Express plan is designed for relapse cases and very minor movements, as it only involves up to 7 sets of aligners.

FAQs

The price ranges from $4,200 – $8,800 depending on the complexity of your teeth condition. 

i.DENTAL offers both in-house and credit card financing as well as plans for students and National Servicemen.

Apart from the aligners required for treatment, our Invisalign packages are also inclusive of:

  • Invisalign attachments

Attachments are small tooth-coloured shapes that are attached to the teeth using dental composites. They are placed in precise locations, acting as a grip for the aligners as they guide the teeth to their new positions. 

During treatment, the clear aligners fit tightly around the attachments to move your teeth more effectively.

  • Progress reviews

You will be required to go for a review once every 8 – 12 weeks for our dentists to check on your progress. 

  • 1 refinement 

Refinements are used to fix any small imperfections after your Invisalign treatment is complete.

Treatment duration can vary significantly depending on your condition and desired results. 

A typical treatment can take about 1.5 to 2 years but there are orthodontic devices available from our clinic that you can use to speed up your treatment. Devices like Acceledent and VPRO5 are able to cut treatment time by as much as 50%.

It is recommended for you to wear it at least 22 hours per day.

Our dentists will create a customised digital treatment plan that maps out the exact movements of your teeth using the ClinCheck® program. 

Your Invisalign clear aligners are then designed to apply the right amount of force to the right place at the right time based on your plan. 

Our doctor will be with you every step of the way to monitor your progress and ensure your aligners fit correctly.

A physical review will be scheduled once every 8 – 12 weeks depending on your condition. 

Alternatively, you can also opt for weekly Dental Monitoring to track your progress. All you need to do is to upload photos of your teeth onto the mobile app and our dentists will be able to monitor your treatment in real-time.

It will depend on your dentist’s instructions. Usually for the first few sets of aligners, you will change it every 10 days.

Our dentists will recommend the different types of retainers which you can wear. You will also be advised on the daily duration of wearing your retainers. This is to prevent your teeth from gradually shifting back to their initial position.
