About Invisalign Treatment
Unlock a healthier smile.
Straightening your teeth could have a positive impact on your overall dental health. The aligners are easily removed, so you can continue to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would to maintain good oral hygiene. And because straighter teeth are less susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease, investing in a straighter smile now may even minimise the need for costly dental work in the future.
On your terms.
Invisalign state-of-the-art digital treatment planning tools mean you only need short and usually non-invasive visits every 4 to 8 weeks. We will provide you with your next series of aligners to take home – so you can change them every 1-2 weeks, wherever you might be.
More precision, less pain.
Aligners made from SmartTrack material are more comfortable, trimmed to your exact gum line to fit better, and are easy to put in and take out. They’re also less painful than braces.*
Made to move your life, not disrupt it.
Because the aligners are removable, you can easily take them in and out to continue enjoying the food you love without any restrictions. For those who participate in contact sports, Invisalign clear aligners can be removed before you play.
Invisalign Treatment Process
1. The Consultation
Once we have confirmed you’re eligible for treatment, we will take photos, X-rays and digital scans, or a dental impression, of your teeth. These records will be used to create a 3D treatment plan, just for you.
2. The Aligners
You will receive a series of custom-made aligners to wear every day and change at home. The aligners are changed on average every 1-2 weeks.
3. The Results
You will visit us around every 4 to 8 weeks to monitor progress and receive new aligners. After finishing your treatment plan, retainers will be required to maintain your new smile. They will help to keep your teeth in their new position, protecting your smile and investment.
