Our smile can be a great asset. Overcrowding or wide spaces in between teeth can sometimes take that away. Moreover, it causes difficulty when brushing, which can lead to swelling, bleeding gums and even decay.
Fortunately, we can correct your teeth and bring out your megawatt smile with your choice of metal or ceramic braces, as well as Invisalign®. Invisalign® is an attractive orthodontic treatment option as the clear aligners are both removable and invisible. It can treat a variety of issues, from gapped teeth to crossbites to overcrowding, while offering comfort and convenience to its wearer. Book a consultation with Family Dental Centre’s team of professional orthodontists at one of our clinics in Singapore to find out if this treatment is the right one for you.
Virtually invisible, almost no one around you will know you are wearing a pair of clear aligners.
When it comes to eating or drinking, simply remove them for greater comfort.
Made out of a patented, flexible thermoplastic material called SmartTrack®, these Invisalign® Clear Aligners have a smooth surface that allows for a comfortable fit over your teeth, minimising any gum irritation.

Orthodontists and general dentists share a common focus on oral health, but orthodontics stands out as one of the specialised fields within dentistry. Its primary focus is the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of dental conditions such as crooked teeth, bad bites, and poorly aligned jaws. These conditions may require a combination of orthodontic appliances and surgical interventions to correct. In addition to traditional braces, orthodontists can also use Invisalign, a clear aligner system, to treat dental malocclusions.
In complex cases, general dentists usually refer their patients to orthodontic specialists. While not all orthodontic cases are eligible for Invisalign treatment, an orthodontic specialist can evaluate a patient’s needs and determine the best course of treatment. Parents are increasingly concerned about their children’s dental health, which has a significant impact on their overall health and well-being. Early orthodontic treatment is particularly effective in correcting jaw deficiencies and bite problems while the child’s bones and body are still developing.
