Getting Started

The best invisible braces in Singapore have one thing in common:

Real screening and consultations done by real, licensed dentists.

FREE dental assessment inside!

That’s right – having a real-life doctor or dentist looking closely at your teeth is the one thing that will make or break your invisible braces treatment.

When it comes to invisible braces (also known as transparent braces in Singapore), there’s simply no substitute for the duty of care and accountability that comes with a licensed professional by your side.

Successful invisible braces treatment: Why is having a doctor or dentist so crucial?

It boils down to three things a dentist does for you:
 

Get a Safe & Free Assessment

 

Make no mistake – if any of the steps above are skipped in the process before designing your invisible braces, you are opening yourself up to unnecessary risks and even irreversible damage to your teeth.

 

Skipped your X-rays before getting transparent braces?

Bad move.

 

Dentists need X-rays to keep an eye out for any type of dental abnormalities, including impacted teeth, cysts, and supernumeraries. That’s because whenever present in a patient, these issues need to be resolved before orthodontic treatment can proceed – if at all.

X-rays give orthodontists the necessary information that not only helps them determine where problems exist but also guides them on the best way to correct these issues (e.g. if extraction or surgery is required before treatment).

 

Proceeding to design your transparent braces without X-rays, is like going in without a clear plan of action – which nearly always does more harm than good.

 

Do you have any underlying teeth conditions?

 

The only way to know is sit in the dentist chair and let the doctor take a thorough look-see inside your mouth.

 

Think of this critical in-chair time as a “discovery-phase”. Your dentist will use this opportunity to get the lay of the land and identify anything that could complicate your invisible braces journey – like periodontis, gum-disease, etc.

 

That’s because orthodontic tooth movement (no matter from traditional or invisible braces) in patients with active periodontal disease has been shown to aggravate the condition, potentially leading to tooth loss

 

Skipped IPR and went ahead with your invisible braces?

 

You could be worsening things in your bite – especially if you have pre-existing bimax. BIMAX stands for bimaxillary protrusion.

 

If you have BIMAX, your top and bottom teeth protrude outwards and your lips can stick out. 

 

In plain English, you have a “duckface”. 

 

Many Asians have some degree of BIMAX, but wearing badly designed clear braces that don’t account for BIMAX can totally mess up your bite, like this lady who could no longer chew food with her teeth.   

 

That’s why you often need a dentist to perform IPR (inter-proximal reduction) before getting your clear braces done in Singapore. This ensures there is sufficient space for your teeth to move as they realign during braces treatment.

 

Fail to address any pre-existing BIMAX before you wear your clear aligners could leave you with an even more pronounced BIMAX.

 

Not pretty.

 

Wow, all this sounds really unsafe!

 

You got that right. 

 

Unfortunately, there are several invisible braces brands in Singapore that cut the dentist out of the treatment wayyyyyy too much.

 

Which has led to several concerns over safety standards.

 

Are there safer invisible braces?
