Invisalign

Invisible Orthodontic Treatment in Johannesburg & Sandton

At the office of Dr. Sahide Choonara, we strive to provide high-quality orthodontic care while maintaining a fun, friendly, and welcoming office environment. Dr. Choonara and our highly-trained team of orthodontic specialists work hard to treat every patient on an individual basis, designing personalized treatment plans that perfectly suit their unique orthodontic needs. We're constantly looking for ways to make treatment as convenient as possible for our patients, which is why we're proud to offer Invisalign: a virtually invisible way to improve your smile.

The Clear Way to a Beautiful Smile

Invisalign is a revolutionary alternative to braces that does away with metal wires and brackets altogether, using a series of clear, removable plastic trays to straighten your teeth. The aligners are virtually invisible, which means no one will know you're undergoing treatment, and can easily be removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. This means that oral hygiene is as easy as ever and you can still enjoy all your favorite foods!

How Invisalign Works

Dr. Choonara is a certified Diamond Provider, which means he possesses the highest level of expertise and experience with Invisalign. His skill level will help transform your smile, using time-proven methods to deliver results that will change your life forever. Our office is at the forefront of Invisalign technology, and we only use the latest methods to craft your individual treatment plan. You can expect the your visits to the office to proceed as follows:

  1. First, we'll perform a comprehensive orthodontic examination where we'll take specific measurements, pictures, and x-rays. Then, we'll create a 3D computer model of your mouth and bite.
  2. Based on your exam, we'll make a diagnosis on your current orthodontic health and any orthodontic problems you may have.
  3. We'll use the 3D computer model to create a detailed treatment plan for moving your teeth from their current positions into a healthy, beautiful, and straight smile, then divide that plan into 2-week increments.
  4. Your own set of aligners will be custom-manufactured to fit your teeth, and when they're ready you'll receive your first set.
  5. You'll wear each pair of aligners for 2 weeks before switching to the next, and with each new set, your teeth will move closer to their final positions.
  6. At the end of your treatment, you'll have a gorgeous new smile that's yours to keep!

It's critical to wear Invisalign as often as possible, to ensure your treatment progresses as planned. Do your best to wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours a day, and follow any other recommendations made by Dr. Choonara.

Caring for Your Invisalign

You'll still need to maintain excellent oral hygiene habits and clear your aligners during treatment. Since the aligners are removable, keeping them clean is much easier than cleaning your braces. You can brush and floss normally, but during treatment, it's recommended that you brush at least four times a day. You'll also need to brush your aligners every time you take them out or put them back in, and you may want to periodically soak your aligners in a cup of water with a denture cleaning tablet.
