FAQ on INVISALIGN
Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign translates your doctor’s instructions into a series of nearly undetectable aligners. You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, moving your teeth millimetre by millimetre until you’ve achieved the desired result.
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 orthodontist can determine the length of your treatment.
Call an Invisalign-trained orthodontist and make an appointment for your Invisalign consultation. To locate an Invislign accredited doctor near you or to find out more information, call 0 2718 0777.
Precise training is needed to use Invisalign, consequently, orthodontists and dentists are required to become Invisalign-certified before they can begin treating patients with Invisalign. The dentists at Thantakit are certainly well qualified since Thantakit is an Invisalign Platinuj Provider awarded by Invisalign USA.
As with other types of orthodontic treatment, the cost of Invisalign is dependent on the complexity of a patient’s case. We have several financing options to help you fit Invisalign into your budget. Please see our Invisalign Treatment Fees and Payment Program

Yes. Spaces between teeth are generally easy to close with the Invisalign System.
Most people experience temporary, minor discomfort for a few days at the beginning of each new stage of treatment. This is normal and is usually described as a feeling of pressure. It is a sign that Invisalign is working – gradually moving your teeth to their final destination. This uneasiness goes away a couple of days after you insert the new aligner in the series.
No. Unlike conventional wires & brackets, you can eat whatever you like while in treatment because you remove your Aligners to eat and drink. Therefore, there is no need to restrict your favorite foods and snacks, unless instructed otherwise by your doctor. Additionally, it is important that you brush your teeth after each meal to maintain proper hygiene.
We discourage smoking while wearing Aligners because it is possible for the Aligners to become discolored or damaged.
No, gum will stick to the Aligners. We recommend removing your Aligners for all meals and snacks.
The best way to clean your Aligners is by brushing and rinsing them in lukewarm water.
This depends on the outcome of the treatment. Some patients might need a positioner, or conventional retainer. Other patients might need a clear plastic retainer similar to the ones Invisalign makes. We will discuss the possibilities with you. Every patient is different and outcomes vary since how the patient look after their teeth after the treatment will affect unwanted future movement possibilities.
Similar to all orthodontic treatments, aligners may temporarily affect the speech of some people, and you may have a slight lisp for a short period of time. However, as your tongue gets used to having aligners in your mouth, any lisp or minor speech impediment caused by the aligners should disappear upon familiarization. Despite the minor impediments, this is currently the orthodontic treatment that imposes the least speech impediments.
