Invisalign Singapore:  Types, Costs & Benefits

Looking to get Invisalign in Singapore? Here’s all you need to know about the invisible aligners! From how much Invisalign costs to the types of Invisalign available. That way, once you’re visiting your dental clinic, you’ll be prepared and informed prior to treatment. 

What Is Invisalign?


Invisalign is a computer engineered, clear and removable alternative to braces for straightening teeth. It uses 3D computer imaging technology and patented multi-layer SmartTrack™ material specially engineered to create an entire treatment plan for each individual, complete from the initial position of your teeth to the final position! 

From this plan, a series of custom-made, clear aligners are produced. Each aligner is worn for 20 to 22 hours a day, each for a few weeks at a time. This moves your teeth incrementally before being replaced by the next aligner in the planned series until the final position of your teeth is achieved.

Who Is Invisalign For?

Common orthodontic issues fixed by Invisalign include but are not limited to: 

  1. Crooked teeth
  2. Gaps between teeth
  3. Crowded teeth
  4. Misaligned teeth
  5. Underbite and overbite 
  6. Open bite and crossbite 

Of course, this list is not exhaustive. Your Invisalign plan can be adjusted and modified to your needs, and many factors are taken into consideration before fitting you for your very own customised set of Invisalign. 

Benefits of Invisalign

Beyond just being a clearer alternative to invisible braces, Invisalign also comes with a few other benefits.

1. Powerful but Gentle

Invisalign is known for being a comfortable process. This is because they fit snugly around your teeth, and avoid your gum line. 

In some cases, your clear aligners may also be fitted with SmartForce Attachments. These small, tooth-coloured shapes are attached to your teeth before or during your Invisalign treatment. These shapes give your aligners something to push on. Despite these attachments, the process is still gentle, applying the right amount of force to your teeth to straighten them without hurting you in the process.

2. Discreet

Since Invisalign’s aligners are clear and barely noticeable, they are discreet. Not to mention, they can be easily removed from your teeth at any time, so they won’t interrupt your daily life!

3. Accurate

The Invisalign treatment requires your doctor to create a detailed treatment plan using ClinCheck software. Your doctor can map out your new smile using 3D images and create a custom treatment plan that’s right for you. This also means that every movement required by your teeth is calculated, and straightens your teeth with 75% more predictability. 

Types of Invisalign In Singapore 

Invisalign First

There are 3 general types of Invisalign available in Singapore:

1. Invisalign

These clear, customised, and removable aligners are perfect for adults looking to straighten their teeth. They work as a comfortable substitute for braces.

2. Invisalign Teens

Invisalign Teen is designed specifically for growing patients, which focuses not only on aligning teeth but also has the ability to modify underlying jaw growth problems (such as small lower jaw) with their mandibular advancement feature. This offers just the right amount of power to push jaws forward to alter the jaw growth, while still allowing for the continual eruption of new adult teeth into the right position. 

3. Invisalign First

Invisalign First is designed for early interceptive treatment, such as in young children who have a mix of baby and permanent teeth. It helps to develop young jaws and / or arches by making room for any existing teeth, as well as for incoming permanent teeth. 

In the long run, using Invisalign First can prevent pre-existing bite issues from getting worse, and fixes existing teeth-straightening conditions. It also guides new adult teeth to erupt in  better positions. This makes any future comprehensive treatment, if necessary, shorter and easier.

Cost of Invisalign 

The cost of any Invisalign treatment depends on many factors. From the complexity of your needs to the length of your treatment. A consultation with your orthodontist will often include various possible treatment options, as well as the cost of treatment.
