Invisalign – The clear alternative to traditional braces
When you think of braces what is the first thing that comes to mind: metallic brackets? Unsightly wires? In the past, you would have been right, but not anymore!
The trouble with braces
Braces are often a concern for adults who worry about aesthetics or who want to maintain a professional image while getting their teeth straightened. Braces are also uncomfortable, cause ulcers in the mouth and make oral hygiene extremely difficult, resulting in an increased risk of tooth decay. Invisalign is the new and revolutionary way to straighten teeth. With Invisalign services in Cannon Hill and people from surrounding suburbs of Bulimba, Morningside, Murarrie, Carina, Carina Heights, Tingalpa, Belmont, Hemmant, Balmoral, Hawthorne, Carindale, Seven Hills and Camp Hill, you can straighten your teeth without the hassle of braces.
With Invisalign It Is Almost Invisible
Our Invisalign treatment involves wearing a series of nearly invisible aligner trays, which are worn on a daily basis. The aligners are completely removable and custom-made to fit you perfectly. Each aligner is worn for two weeks, and week by week your teeth will slowly move into a more symmetrical configuration. Treatment time varies for each person, but over the series of aligners you can achieve that straight smile that you are after.
Other Benefits of Invisalign
The aligners are completely removable, which means you have full control over when to wear them. If you have a special occasion coming up and you’re conscious about having the aligners in, you won’t have to worry because you will be able to take the aligners out temporarily! Brushing and flossing your teeth will also be much easier as you will be able to clean them normally without having annoying wires in the way.
Our Invisalign treatment uses state of the art technology to provide you with a 3D animation. This shows how your teeth will move and what your teeth will look like by the end of the treatment. By doing this before treatment starts, you will be able to have a say in the final outcome. You’ll also know exactly what will be happening during the course of your treatment. Check out some of the 3D animations below.
The cost of Invisalign varies depending on the complexity of the problem. As a local dentist, we try to keep costs down, but they can still range between $3000 and $8000. Every Invisalign treatment comes with a free teeth whitening.
We also have interest free payment plans available to help you achieve that dream smile on a budget.
How does Invisalign work?
Our Invisalign services are customised to each individual. Your Invisalign trays will be made up of a series of clear trays called aligners, specially moulded just for you by our local dentists. Each tray is worn for 2 weeks and it gradually moves your teeth into the desired position.
How long do I wear the trays for?
The aligners are removable but they must be worn for at least 22 hours each day. This allows you to remove them when you eat, clean your teeth, or for special occasions.
We will see you every 6-8 weeks to monitor your progress. In between check-ups, you will wear the aligners, replacing them with a new set every two weeks. At the check-up appointments, we will assess how treatment is going and make adjustments if they are needed.
Towards the end of your Invisalign treatment, our dentist will offer teeth whitening as well. Teeth whitening will help to improve the colour of the teeth. Teeth whitening is free for anyone that has their Invisalign treatment with us.
What Happens When Treatment is Finished?
Once treatment has finished and you have your perfect smile, retainers will be needed in order to keep that smile for life. The type of retainer needed will depend on each individual and you can discuss this with your dentist.
