What Are Invisalign Clear Aligners And How Do They Work?

Clear aligners are an orthodontic treatment used to straighten teeth. They are made of clear, plastic material that is custom-fitted to your teeth. Clear aligners are a popular alternative to traditional metal braces because they are virtually invisible, comfortable to wear, and can be removed while eating and brushing your teeth.

To use clear aligners, you will receive a series of aligners that you wear for a set amount of time before switching to the next set in the series. Each set of aligners will gradually move your teeth closer towards your new, straight smile. Clear aligners are an effective treatment for a variety of orthodontic issues, and can be used by both adults and teenagers.

What Are The Benefits 
Of Invisalign Clear Aligners?

Some Of The Main Advantages Of Clear Aligners Include:

Virtually invisible: One of the most appealing aspects of clear aligners is that they are virtually invisible when worn. This makes them a great option for adults who feel self-conscious about wearing traditional metal braces.

Comfortable to wear: Clear aligners are made of smooth, plastic material that is comfortable to wear and won't irritate your gums or cheeks like metal braces can.

Removable: Clear aligners can be easily removed for eating, brushing, and cleaning, which makes it easier to maintain good oral hygiene.

Some Lesser-Known Benefits Of Clear Aligners Include:

Faster treatment time: In some cases, clear aligners may be able to straighten teeth faster than traditional braces.

No food restrictions: With clear aligners, you don't have to worry about avoiding certain foods that could get stuck in your braces or damage the wires. So you can enjoy all your normal foods while straightening your teeth (just take the aligners out to eat).

Frequently Asked Questions 
About Invisalign Clear Aligners Brisbane

General Information

How Invisalign works to straighten teeth?

Invisalign works by using a series of custom-made clear aligners that gradually shift your teeth into their desired position. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before moving on to the next in the series.

How is Invisalign made?

Invisalign aligners are made using a strong medical grade thermoplastic material. The process starts with a 3D scan of your teeth, which is used to design the aligners.

Which is better: Invisalign or braces?

The answer depends on your specific needs and lifestyle. Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible and removable, making them a popular choice for adults and teens. However, traditional braces might be more effective for complex dental issues.

Also, the biggest issue with Invisalign is compliance - they only work if you wear them! Some patients prefer to simply have braces attached rather than worrying about caring for removable aligners.

Which is cheaper: Invisalign or braces?

The cost of Invisalign and braces can vary depending on the complexity of the treatment. Generally, the two options are comparably priced, though Invisalign can sometimes be slightly more expensive.

Can you get Invisalign for teens?

Yes, Invisalign Teen is a specific line of Invisalign aligners designed for teenagers.

Can anyone get clear aligners?

Most people with mild to moderate dental alignment issues can use clear aligners. However, severe cases, or those requiring significant movement of back teeth or vertical adjustments, might be better suited for traditional braces. Your dentist or orthodontist will be able to advise you on the best treatment for your needs.

Invisalign vs veneers

Invisalign and veneers serve different purposes. Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment used to adjust the position of teeth over time, correcting issues like overbites, underbites, and crowding. Veneers, on the other hand, are thin coverings placed over the front part of the tooth to improve their appearance. They're often used for cosmetic purposes, such as improving the colour, shape, or size of teeth.

Invisalign vs retainer

Invisalign and retainers are both types of orthodontic appliances, but they have different functions. Invisalign is a treatment used to move and straighten teeth, while retainers are used after orthodontic treatment to hold teeth in their new position and prevent them from shifting back.

Invisalign vs clear aligners

Invisalign is a brand of clear aligners. There are many brands of clear aligners available, and while they all serve the same general purpose of straightening teeth, there can be differences in terms of material, treatment planning, cost, and availability.

Can you eat with clear aligners? Can you drink alcohol with clear aligners?

Clear aligners should be removed when eating or drinking anything other than water. Food can damage the aligners, and both food and drink can become trapped between the aligner and your teeth, leading to potential staining or tooth decay. This includes alcoholic beverages.

What’s the difference between clear aligners and retainers?

Clear aligners and retainers may look similar, but they have different functions. Clear aligners are designed to move your teeth into a new position over time, while retainers are used to keep your teeth in their new position once your orthodontic treatment is complete.

Can Invisalign Clear Aligners Fix…

Can Invisalign correct an overbite?

Yes, Invisalign can correct mild to moderate overbites in many cases. However, severe overbites may require additional orthodontic interventions.

Can Invisalign fix gaps?

Yes, Invisalign is often used to close gaps between teeth. The clear aligners gradually shift teeth to reduce the space.

Can Invisalign fix crowding?

Yes, Invisalign can help to fix crowding by gradually moving the teeth into a more balanced and evenly spaced position.

Can Invisalign fix crossbite?

Yes, Invisalign can be used to treat mild to moderate cases of crossbite. Severe cases might require more traditional orthodontic treatments.

Can Invisalign correct an underbite?

Invisalign can correct mild to moderate underbites. Severe underbites, particularly those caused by jaw misalignment, may require additional treatments such as surgery or traditional braces.

Can Invisalign fix an overjet?

Yes, Invisalign can be used to correct an overjet, which is when the upper front teeth protrude outward over the lower front teeth.

Can Invisalign move your jaw?

While Invisalign can make minor adjustments to the position of the jaw, significant jaw movement typically requires more comprehensive orthodontic treatment or surgical procedures.

Can Invisalign pull teeth down?

Invisalign can help to adjust the position of teeth, including moving teeth vertically. However, the effectiveness can depend on the extent of movement required and the specific circumstances of the individual case.

Can Invisalign widen your smile?

Yes, Invisalign can help to widen a narrow arch and create a broader smile. This is achieved by using aligners that gradually apply pressure to the teeth, moving them outward to expand the arch.

Can you get Invisalign for bottom teeth?

Absolutely, Invisalign can be used to straighten both upper and lower teeth. It can be a great option if you only need to adjust your bottom teeth as treatment can be customised to suit your specific needs.


How Invisalign attachments work?

Invisalign attachments are small, tooth-coloured dots of dental bonding that are placed on certain teeth to help the aligners grip the teeth and move them more effectively.

How Invisalign attachments are removed?

Invisalign attachments are removed by your dentist using a dental drill to gently buff away the bonding material.

Will Invisalign work with crowns?

Invisalign can be used with crowns, but it may depend on the condition of the crown and the specific tooth movements needed.

Will Invisalign work with missing teeth?

Invisalign can be used if you have missing teeth. Your dentist will create a treatment plan that takes the missing teeth into account.

How long do clear aligners take to work?

The time clear aligners take to work can vary depending on the individual's dental needs, but generally, treatment can range from 6 months to 2 years. Regular use of the aligners as prescribed by your dentist or orthodontist is essential for optimal results.

Are clear aligners noticeable?

Compared to traditional braces, Invisalign is very discreet. In photos, you'll rarely see clear aligners. Up close in conversation, people may notice the small attachments used to hold the clear aligners in place.

Issues / Challenges

Can Invisalign cause gum recession?

While Invisalign itself shouldn't cause gum recession, poor oral hygiene during treatment could lead to gum issues. It's important to maintain good oral hygiene practices during your Invisalign treatment.

Will Invisalign give me a lisp?

Some people may temporarily develop a slight lisp when they first start wearing Invisalign aligners. This typically goes away as your mouth adjusts to the aligners.

Does I​nvisalign work when teeth grinding?

Yes, Invisalign can work for people who grind their teeth. In fact, the aligners may even act as a thin nightguard to help protect your teeth from the effects of grinding.

Do clear aligners cause jaw pain or popping?

Some people may experience temporary discomfort or pressure when they first start wearing clear aligners or when they switch to a new set of aligners. However, clear aligners should not cause persistent jaw pain or popping. If you're experiencing these symptoms, it's important to consult with your dentist or orthodontist.

What happens if clear aligners don’t fit properly?

If your clear aligners don't fit properly, they may not effectively shift your teeth into the desired position. Ill-fitting aligners can also cause discomfort. If you notice that your aligners aren't fitting correctly, contact your dentist or orthodontist as soon as possible to have them adjusted or replaced.
