Dr. Joy Antony, Managing Director, and head Specialist Orthodontist at Dr. Joy Dental Clinic, Dubai, is ranked as the highest Invisalign® provider (Platinum) in the UAE and GCC according to “Find A Doctor”. Invisalign, the revolutionary system from Align Technology USA is transforming the way dentist practice Orthodontics. This is because the system allows the dentist to straighten teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of custom-made aligners.
Today, Invisalign® is the preferred choice to achieve straight teeth. The BPA-free plastic aligners are virtually invisible and are worn over teeth. These trays are designed to move teeth in small steps to the desired position prescribed by the Orthodontist. This is the perfect orthodontic treatment for people who are self-conscious about wearing braces and are time poor.
An Invisalign® Patient Survey in 2010, shows many advantages of wearing aligners instead of traditional braces. This includes – freedom to eat all types of foods, less noticeable, improved oral hygiene, less irritation to cheeks and gums, and less dental visits.

The treatment process begins with the patient visiting the clinic to determine if Invisalign® is suitable. If the person is a good candidate, x-rays, pictures, and impressions of the teeth are taken, which are used to create a digital 3-D image, showing the teeth before, during and after the treatment.
After reviewing the video with the Orthodontist, a treatment plan is agreed upon and a series of custom-made aligners are made. These aligners are worn throughout the day and are only removed for eating and brushing/flossing. Approximately every 2 weeks, a new set of aligners is worn for 20 to 22 hours per day until the perfect smile is achieved!
