An alternative to braces that gently straightens misaligned teeth.
What is Invisalign?
Braces used to be the only option available to straighten patients’ teeth. However, Invisalign is a technologically advanced system that is providing an alternative to braces that gently straightens misaligned teeth using a series of clear, plastic aligners. The aligners are similar to a retainer but are made to fit you perfectly to ensure maximum comfort.
While braces are still the preferred treatment to correct children’s misaligned teeth, teenagers and adults who are unhappy with their smile may find that Invisalign is a more convenient option. Our dentists are Invisalign certified and can help you achieve the smile you have always wanted. Please feel free to contact us for further information.
The Procedure For Invisalign in Perth
The Invisalign process begins with a consultation with one of our dentists to determine if Invisalign is the best treatment option for you.
Next, a dental impression will be taken and be uploaded to the Align Technology ClinCheck software. This state-of-the-art software will show you a series of images of how your teeth will be re-positioned to create a smile that you are happy with.
Once you are happy with your new digital smile, you will receive a series of clear, plastic aligners to wear. Each plastic aligner is designed to gently push your teeth in the desired direction to re-align your smile. Every two weeks you will change your aligner to ensure the progressive movement of your teeth. The retainers can be removed at any time for your convenience, however, the retainers should be worn as much as possible to ensure maximum results at the end of the treatment.
The length of treatment may vary from 6 months to 24 months, depending on your individual treatment needs. This will be discussed during your initial consultation.
