What is Invisalign?
With over 900 patents and 5.5 million improved smiles, Invisalign is the world’s most advanced clear aligner. The aligners are made of medical-grade, non-toxic plastic that is practically invisible – no metal brackets or wires involved.
Invisalign can treat a variety of dental concerns such as overcrowding, gapped teeth, overbites, and crooked teeth. The process starts with a visit to our Dentist practice in Perth. After scanning your current smile, one of our expert dentists will create a custom treatment plan to help you achieve straight and beautiful teeth. The aligners are then made using advanced 3D-printing technology for an exact fit. The state-of-the-art Invisalign system involves a series of aligners that are precisely-calculated and designed to gradually move your teeth to the desired position.
Unlike metal braces which require regular adjustment by your dentist, you can easily remove and replace your aligners yourself every 2 weeks.
How long will the treatment take?
The treatment period can vary between six months to 2 years, with the average plan lasting from 12 to 14 months. This largely depends on what needs to be aligned and how serious the issues are.
Is Invisalign the right choice for me?
The Invisalign technology is recommended for people above the age of 14, as long their permanent molars have fully erupted. It’s best to consult your dentist to find out if Invisalign is the best option for you. If Invisalign is not an option for you you can rest assured that the treating dentist will provide an alternative and in some cases referral may be required for the most severe cases.
Is Invisalign painful?
Because the aligners use pressure to adjust your teeth to the desired alignment, you may feel mild discomfort when you’re fitted with a new set. This is only temporary, however, and should wear off once your teeth have adjusted.
How often do I have to go back to the dentist?
We recommend that you schedule regular appointments with your dentist every 2-6 weeks. We will monitor your teeth’s progress and make sure you’re right on track to a healthy, beautiful smile.
How much does Invisalign cost? Is it covered by insurance?
Many factors could affect total costs, such as your smile goals, length of the treatment plan, and your insurance policy coverage; your dentist will be able to give you an estimate when you go in for consultation. Invisalign is available at a comparable price to regular braces – the average cost for treatment is $6,000-$7500.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
