When interviewed, Dr Kenneth Lew said " We are committed to making Invisalign accessible for Singaporeans. I observe how our patients, when starting work, want to straighten their teeth invisibly. A great smile, straight teeth builds confidence when in job interviews. Added confidence gives the edge in the dating game, workplace interaction. When young, some did not have the opportunity to wear braces. Singaporeans have many demands put on them, and we really do want to help them build their confidence'.

If you are considering Invisalign, chances are that you are' "esthetics motivated"... so a treatment plan that considers your final FACIAL PROFILE is good. Dr Kenneth Lew has the experience to tell you whether you can be treated WITHOUT extracting teeth.
Dr Kenneth Lew continues,' I will be candid. Our braces treatment for you is NOT Korean plastic surgery, you cannot hope to improve the upper third of your face or the height and shape of your nose with braces. BUT our braces treatment will incorporate treatment planning that will improve the facial profile of the lower third of your face, because your soft tissue profile has the potential of improving when we move your teeth with braces treatment'.
What is of paramount importance is the experience of your dentist. In your case, Dr Kenneth Lew, our Specialist Orthodontist will ANALYSE YOUR DENTAL AND PROFILE PROBLEMS, 'KEY' YOUR DATA AND TREATMENT PLAN INTO CLIN-CHECK, AND WILL TELL YOU WHAT BRACES SYSTEM, OR INVISALIGN CAN OR CANNOT ACHIEVE FOR YOU. Dr Kenneth Lew exclaims, 'It is important for us to embrace technology, embrace it perceptively. Indeed, we use technology in conjunction with the wisdom that comes with yes, age, and experience!' Dr Kenneth Lew uses Invisalign to correct patients' open bites ( where your upper and lower teeth do not touch), underbites ( where your lower teeth, and jaw, bite in front of your upper teeth), deep bites ( where your upper teeth bite over, and cover most of your lower teeth).... using Invisalign, and WITHOUT extracting teeth. Dr Kenneth Lew added, " I need to clinically examine mu patient's arch lengths, bites, jaw angles, severity of proclination or retroclination of their teeth. Xrays and diagnostic moulds are used in my diagnosis".
'KNOWLEDGE ONLY HAS VALUE WHEN WE SHARE IT', mused Dr Kenneth Lew.
WHAT IS INVISALIGN?
Invisalign is a system of transparent aligners, made in the USA, and customized for you to use to move your teeth. Because it is transparent and removable, it is a lifestyle choice for many patients. Invisalign aligners does not interfere with your professional, social life, it uses a proprietary material and proprietary software (Clin check). The computer will simulate your tooth movement and predict the number of aligners you will need to use. Generally, we issue from 20 to 35 aligners for each patient, at 6 week intervals. Our Dr Kenneth Lew's Invisalign diagnostic consultation with you will be INTERACTIVE, and we encourage you to ‘play’ with our clin check analysis so that you can understand it. Because Invisalign is removable, it is so important for patients to fully cooperate for good results.
Cost of Invisalign ...Invisalign costs treated by Dr Kenneth Lew. He is a certified Specialist Orthodontist, and your Invisalign treatment with us is in the range of S$4,000 ( Invisalign i-7) to S$7,500. Most of our patients' Invisalign costs an average of S$ 6,900-$7,200 for treating both upper and lower teeth. Much depends on whether you are a 'simple' or 'complex case, , how long your treatment will take, how many aligners need to be customised for you. We will let you know how much at your first visit to our clinic. Do ask us if you wish to pay by instalments for Invisalign? And do ask us about our LOYALTY programmes
A question we are always asked, said Dr Kenneth Lew, " Can my Invisalign treatment be ACCELERATED"? Well, there is a Class 2 medical device called AcceleDent, which is FDA cleared and available in the USA. How does it work? According to the USA based manufacturer, it is a hand held device which you wear for 20 minutes everyday around your existing orthodontic device. It uses gentle micropulses to encourage bone remodellling, allowing teeth to move faster.
AcceleDent is NOT available in Singapore at the time of writing ( August 2015). It is NOT approved by the Health Science Authority of Singapore as a medical device. Thus, if you use AcceleDent in Singapore, a patient will have NO remedy against the AcceleDent manaufacturer if something goes wrong. Thus, Tanglin Dental Surgeons will NOT use AcceleDent on our patients unless and until the Health Science Authority of Singapore approves it. It is a new product and there is NO long term research to show whether accelerated Invisalign treatment with AcceleDent is stable in LONG TERM.
As a responsible specialist orthodontic clinic, Tanglin Dental Surgeons does NOT want to put our patients at risk by recommending that they use AcceleDent.
