If you are thinking of straightening out your teeth but not looking forward to having fixed metal braces on your teeth, we can help you achieve that with Invisalign at Prestige Dental Care!

Invisalign — A custom-fitted aligner

Invisalign is a set of custom-fitted aligners that fit over your teeth that slowly pull all your teeth into alignment. With Invisalign, you will be given a set of custom-made aligner trays that are made of BPA-free thermoplastic material.

They are removable, flexible, smooth and almost invisible- this means that you can remove your aligners while eating, avoid the painful monthly tightening needed for metal braces, and the best yet: you no longer have to put up with having ulcers or metal wires poking into your sensitive mouth tissues, or getting food in your braces and subsequently bad odour from areas that are difficult to be cleaned.

How is it done?

At Prestige Dental Care, we will examine your teeth and take the necessary records needed before starting treatment, such as: photos of your teeth and facial profile and dental X-rays. Our clinic is also equipped with the 3-shape intra-oral scanner. Unlike traditional methods of taking moulds of teeth, we use this intra-oral scanner to take digital pictures of your teeth which gives our dentists a very high definition, 3D image of your smile and teeth. This can then be used to custom make your aligners very accurately.

MBrace Clear Aligners

 

What is Mbrace®?

MBrace is a clear aligner used to correct misaligned teeth with ease and comfort. It is clear and removable which makes it almost unnoticeable by others and convenient to use. The aligners are custom-made digitally and fabricated individually to ensure a perfect and accurate fit for your teeth.

how does MBrace® work?

MBrace aligner is designed in a way that it does not require any wires or attachments to align your teeth. Just simply wear a series of aligners to exert gradual force against the teeth at different treatment stages to slowly move the teeth towards the final tooth position.
Patients are advised to wear every set of aligners for 2 weeks, at least 22 hours a day before moving to the next aligners.

treatment duration

A more severe teeth condition will take longer time to treat, as more aligners are required over the entire course of treatment.
Typically, MBrace treatment vary from anywhere between 6 to 24 months. Below illustrate the average treatment period based on the severity of the case.

What We Can Treat

MBrace® can help with the following conditions:

Spacing

Too much space between teeth.
An esthetic problem that can also compromise the effectiveness of chewing.

Crowding

Not enough spacing between teeth; teeth overlap.
Can make it hard to brush and floss, thus leading to tooth decay and gum disease.

Midline Discrepancy

Teeth off center; center of upper and lower teeth are not aligned.
Can be an indication of improper bite, which may lead to pain and further issues.

Tipping

Teeth tip outward or inward; teeth tilt at an angle, or lean forward or backward.
Can cause other teeth to shift creating crowding and an improper bite.

Rotation

Teeth are tirned clockwise or counterclockwise.

Can make proper oral hygiene difficult and may lead to tooth decay.
