Invisalign® Clear Aligners

The Invisalign® clear aligner system is an alternative to traditional braces for orthodontic treatment. It is a convenient, safe and comfortable way to straighten teeth. As they are almost invisible and unnoticeable people who are hesitant about wearing braces usually prefer them. 

Invisalign® consists of series of custom-made clear aligners designed and manufactured by The Align Technology according to your orthodontist’s treatment plan.  Every time you change, they gently shift your teeth into a more desired and favorable position as planned. These aligners have no metal brackets or wires and can be removed when eating, brushing, flossing etc.

Why Invisalign®?

As the world’s leading clear aligner company, Align Technology continuously innovate and develop their products. For the past few years 3 “Smart” treatment technologies have been introduced:

  1. Smart Track is the new clear aligner material. This material is more flexible and engages all contours of the teeth.
  2. Smart Staging provides great tooth movement control such as root movement. This feature enables the doctor to correct challenging cases that require extraction with Invisalign®.
  3. Smart Force provides precise tooth movement through a combination of Optimized Attachments.

With the latest G8 technology, Invisalign® can now control the roots of the molars and premolars during dental arch expansion.
These features developed by Align Technology will facilitate the correction of challenging orthodontic problems.

Are there limitations of Invisalign® treatments?

With the latest innovations of the Invisalign® technique, correction of many challenging orthodontic malocclusions such as skeletal open bite, underbite or deep bite is now possible. Today majority of the orthodontic cases could be treated using clear aligners alone. The scope of orthodontic treatments expands with the use of auxiliaries such as orthodontic mini implants or certain components of fixed braces like brackets or buttons.

How do Invisalign® work?

The first step of the orthodontic treatment with Invisalign® is a consultation with your orthodontist. Your records will be taken for an accurate treatment plan. Typically, these records are photos, X rays and your oral scans. After the treatment plan, your doctor will submit your case to Align Technology website and order your aligners.
After your clear aligners are manufactured and delivered your doctor will call you for the first appointment to start your treatment.
During your treatment, you’ll visit your doctor every 4 to 8 weeks for a regular check-up and necessary adjustments. In some cases, additional aligners may need to be ordered free of charge to refine your treatment result.
At the end of the active phase of your Invisalign® treatment, you will have retainers to maintain the alignments of your teeth.

Can children also benefit from Invisalign® treatment?

Yes! Invisalign® is a good treatment option for children and teens as well as adults. Even young children with primary teeth can have orthodontic treatment using Invisalign®. The only condition is the aligners should be worn a minimum of 20 hours a day.

How long does the Invisalign® treatment take?

Invisalign® is a great orthodontic tool to straighten teeth. It’s easy, comfortable and effective. When it comes to the time of the treatment it really depends on a few factors such as the complexity of the orthodontic problem, the state of the oral hygiene, age and the cooperation and discipline of the patient.
Orthodontic tooth movement depends on the biological response of the periodontal structures around the tooth and the bone. Certain factors such as age, certain diseases or medications affecting the biological response may affect the time of the treatment. The average duration of treatment with Invisalign® is between 6 to 12 months however, certain complex treatments requiring more care usually need more time.
For optimum tooth movement, continuous force application is needed. Thus, the aligners should be worn a minimum of 20 hours a day for the tooth movement to be effective. As an added information, treatment time is relatively short as the aligners can move several teeth at the same time.

I think this is the best clinic to put braces on

Dear Dr Tosun,

I set out below a draft text of the testimonial:

Dr Tosun started my orthodontic treatment about 2.5 years ago. Complications arose when i had an infection and needed to have a tooth removed. At this point Dr Tosun worked with Dr Hani and they decided to carry out an innovative treatment in order to grow more bone before removing the tooth,  doing a bone graft an eventually an implant. They worked together effectively, were very flexible and supportive throughout.

The practice is very modern and well equipped to the highest standard and the team efficient and very helpful.

I have been extremely happy with everything and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them

Both our children went to Dr. Tosun for their braces. Excellent orthodontist!! They have beautiful smiles because of him😊 Because of the package Dr. Tosun offered we did not have pay extra when my son had some issues with his braces. Dr. Tosun always took the time to explain things to us, but was always ON TIME with his appointments. We can highly recommend his clinic!!

Having been referred to Dr Tosun by my wife, I have been receiving Orthodontic treatment for the past 11 months. The service and expertise provided has been excellent.

On the rare occasion I needed a quick appointment and Dr Tosun is always on hand to give in person help or help via email. I would highly recommend anyone with Orthodontic needs to feel confident when dealing with Yahya Tosun.

I decided to get braces after my brother had them done in the UK and I was unable to tell he even had them on for a few days. I looked around at several dentists until I came across Dr Tosun. He seemed to know exactly what he was talking about and gave me some good advice. He advised that it was likely to take 2 years for the treatment and it ended up only taking 21 months in the end.

Dr Tosun is very professional and friendly and if there was ever any problem (on holiday and had a question) he would always respond very efficiently by e-mail with some advice. If I needed to go in to get something checked I was almost always able to go that same day and be fitted in between other appointments, I am very happy with the outcome of my orthodontic work and regularly get comments about my good teeth, thank you Dr Tosun.

You will always feel welcomed at Dr Tosun’s clinic. The staff are kind and professional and Dr Tosun did a great job with my daughter’s braces. He took lots of time and care to ensure that the end result was a positive one. I think he genuinely cares about the wellbeing of his patients and was always happy to explain things to us and make himself available if the braces ever needed adjustments or repair in between scheduled appointments. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dr Tosun’s clinic to anyone looking for excellent dental care.
