Invisalign & Clear Braces

Invisalign is a modern alternative approach to straightening your teeth.

About This Treatment

Like conventional braces, It allows you to achieve a more aligned, harmonic smile without the usual inconveniences associated with orthodontic metal braces.

Invisalign is made with 3-D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective.

What is Invisalign?

  • Invisalign is a system that utilizes a series of clear plastic aligners that are customized to each patient 
  • Each tray contributes to gradually reposition your teeth.
  • They are tailor-made therefore they are comfortable to wear.
  • They are removable  and can easily be removed when eating, or when brushing and flossing.

Each Invisalign tray allows a carefully controlled movement that has been determined by the dentist in the planning stage of the treatment. Invisalign allows therefore a very precise and efficient process where certain teeth can be targeted to move at a particular stage. 

On average, each aligner moves the teeth 0.25 mm closer to the desired prescribed position.

What can Invisalign correct?:

•Crooked teeth

•Underbite

•Flared teeth

•Crowded teeth

•Crossbite

•Widening the smile

•Gaps or Spaces between the teeth

Deep Bites Overbite

Every Treatment Is Individual, and Therefore Some Factors Need to Be Considered Before You Decide Which Type of Treatment Is Best Suited for You.

These Factors Include:

•Treatment Goals

•The Difficulty of Your Case

•How Long You Are in Treatment 

•And Additional Factors Determined at The Initial Consultation

There really is no need to be afraid of going to the dentist when you’re seeing Dr Germain. She’s made my Invisalign experience very enjoyable and smooth so far and I would absolutely recommend seeking treatment from her. She makes herself available to patients outside of their appointment times and her personality instantly relaxes you as soon as you visit the dental practice. Thank you for being amazing!!

Frequently Asked Questions

What to Expect on The Day

Invisalign aligners are to be worn throughout the day and while you sleep. We recommend wearing them 22 hours a day for the treatment to be successful.

You can remove them to eat, drink, brush and floss. 

Every few weeks, you will receive a brand new set of aligners. You will continue to visit the clinic in order for us to monitor your progress. 

Invisalign can be summarized in a simple 3 step process: 

  1. Consultation 

At the consultation we will discuss your concerns, understand what goals you wish to achieve. We will assess your teeth, discuss treatment options, explain in detail the Invisalign journey. We will also take digital pictures of your teeth. If  you wish to start your treatment, we will also take some records and x-rays. 

  1. Clincheck

At this appointment we will be able to show you a video of your treatment from start to finish. This video of your teeth movement is called a Clincheck. You will be able to see where attachments will be placed and where space will be needed. This Clincheck review can also be done remotely in a virtual consultation. You will be able to decide if you like the end result and if you would like to make some adjustments. Only once you are happy with the Clincheck, will we approve the manufacturing of your aligners. 

  1. First Aligner Fit

This appointment happens in the office only. We will deliver your first set of aligners and go over with you how to maintain them and wear them. 

Do I need retainers after I am done with my Invisalign treatment? How long will I need to wear my retainers?

Retainers are crucial to the long-Term success of any orthodontic treatment.Teeth have an  inclination to move back to their original position, putting you right back where you started. The solution to this problem: the retainer. 

Retainers must be worn at night for a lifetime in order to keep your teeth in the position they will be at the end of the treatment.

What are Vivera retainers?

Vivera retainers are the retainers created by Invisalign. They have a number of benefits that make them attractive to both dentists and patients alike. Vivera appliances are virtually invisible and are custom-made from thermoplastic instead of metal and thick plastic. Not only does this make them far more comfortable to wear, it also ensures a more exacting fit to promote ease of use as well as efficacy.

How many hours should I wear my Invisalign aligners? And How often should I change my Invisalign aligners?

Invisalign aligners should be worn 22 hours a day. They should only be removed to eat, drink, brush and floss. The success of the treatment is in part majorly attributed to how long you wear your aligners.

Aligners generally need to be changed to a new set every 2 weeks.

Can I eat , smoke, drink with my Invisalign aligners?

You cannot eat with your invisalign trays in. The trays can be removed and should be while eating. 

Smoking and Drinking something other than water should be avoided while the aligners are in your mouth. The residue they create could get into the aligners and stain them and create a film where bacteria could flourish. This will also cause your aligners to develop an odor over time.

How do I clean my Invisalign aligners?

You can use soap and lukewarm water to brush away the residues and bacteria left on your aligners. Avoid using toothpaste, they are too abrasive for the aligners.

Not cleaning your aligners will result in their yellow discolouration, bacteria build up and can impair the health of your teeth.

Can I get Invisalign only on my top or only on my bottom teeth?

Yes you can only get either your top or bottom teeth treated with Invisalign. 

What Can Invisalign Correct?

•Crooked teeth

•Crowded teeth

•Gaps or Spaces between the teeth

•Underbite

•Crossbite

•Deep Bites

•Flared teeth

My experience with Dr. Germain has been nothing short of a pleasure. The attention to care and comfort is second to none and it’s a genuine joy to go to the dentist when being seen by Dr. Germain. She has taken her time inside and outside of our normal appointments to ensure that I am getting the treatment that I need to be confident about my teeth and oral hygiene. Superb knowledge and facilities, top tier professionalism but also a reassuring and friendly presence - couldn’t recommend her more highly.

I was very nervous going to the dentist after too many years avoiding it. Dr. Germain was amazing! Professional but down to earth, she was able to put me at ease. Setting up appointments with her assistant, Chloe has been a breeze and very client-centric. Definitely recommend!

Yay! Finally found a good dentist in London. Dr. Germain does all the right checks (lymph-nodes, tongue and mouth check, jaw, etc) and her cleaning is the best I've had in London. She doesn't waste time trying to upsell you on things (this can be common in the US) but she'll answer all your questions and provide an opinion on options and cost and leave it with you -- which is great. Definitely my primary dentist now.

Excellent dentist with a wonderful sense of humor, patient-focused, available and sympathetic. I had total confidence visiting the office multiple times during the pandemic. She has a very good associated periodontist. If you are looking for an American-style dentist I highly recommend Dr. Germain. She is also experienced with US dental insurance forms.

Dr. Germain is an OUTSTANDING dentist! She exceeded my expectations in delivering the highest quality results and a smile that brings me so much confidence. She is professional, thorough, efficient and cares about me as a patient. She's proactive and checks in post-dental work to make sure all is going smoothly; I couldn't recommend her enough! She has made visits to the dentist much more positive than any other dentist!

Dr. Germain is incredible about seeing the whole picture, made the biggest difference to my face, teeth and I’m incredulous more dentists are NOT like her but wow! I am LUCKY to have found her. She is incredibly tenacious about getting results you are happy with. Her ethics are second to none. The people she co-ordinates with are incredible. Her team are wonderful. She works for you. I now have my gum lines fixed, a set of straight, all natural looking teeth (I showed her my picture before accident so I look like me again!) and my whole face looks fresh. Taken years of me. I can smile!!!

Dr Germain is an excellent dentist and a lovely, warm and caring person. She is highly knowledgeable and skilled and takes the time to fully explain everything she does so that you feel comfortable and informed as the patient. As a Canadian, I previously had avoided dentists in the UK, preferring to wait until I returned to Canada several times a year to go to a dentist I trusted. I searched long and hard for a dentist I felt confident in in London, and I am so happy to have found an excellent dentist in Dr Germain. I would highly recommend her!
