What you need to know about Invisalign in Malaysia

Also known as Clear-Aligner Treatment. This is the clear alternative to conventional dental braces used to adjust and straighten teeth, whilst simultaneously improving the patients smile. Through use of virtually invisible and removable custom-made smooth plastic aligners, dentists are able to place the Invisalign over the teeth allowing for a gradual shift.

Invisalign manufacture the most well known of these clear aligners - the product comprises of a series of computer-generated aligners that are tailor-made to the patient’s teeth. By changing aligners every two to three weeks, the patient’s teeth will gradually move into the correct alignment. The aligners are easy to take off throughout the treatment, allowing the patient to brush and clean their teeth and eat as per normal. Compared to traditional braces, there are no metal brackets and they’re almost invisible to the eye.

This process can help to correct Spacing, Crossbite, Open Bite, Crowding, Excessive Overjet and Deep Bite.

Invisalign v's Conventional Braces

1. Invisalign can be worn with more confidence due to the difficulty in seeing them.

2. Invisalign feel more comfortable, with braces irritating and sometimes even chafing the inside of the mouth.

3. Invisalign is perfect for athletes, who are able to remove them during sport.

4. Braces are semi-permanent, whereas Invisalign can be removed at any time, so less trips to the dentist are required when compared to Invisalign.

5. Braces are quicker to close gaps or straighten teeth.

6. Braces can make some foods difficult to eat, whereas with Invisalign, they can be removed whilst eating tricky meals.


Additional factors to consider:

1. Invisalign can hurt in the early phases. In general, it is less painful than traditional metal braces, and like any type of orthodontic treatment, the pain fades after the teeth adjust to wearing the aligners and to having new aligners swapped in and out.

2. Invisalign and other specialty appliances are considered optional treatments and will result in additional fees. Some plans may cover alternative appliances like Invisalign. 

3. If you are wondering if traditional braces are cheaper than Invisalign, the answer is generally yes. Of course, the actual cost of whatever option you choose will vary based on factors such as how long you will be wearing them, but traditional braces will generally run you less money than invisible aligners.
