Find Invisalign in Melbourne at your Essendon dentist
Invisalign has transformed orthodontic treatment with a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth. Forget traditional metal braces and hiding your smile for years. With Invisalign, you can move your teeth into the desired position with a series of clear aligners that are comfortable, discreet and removable.
We have been offering Invisalign solutions to the residents of Essendon and the surrounding suburbs for years and our reputation as an Invisalign provider has spread throughout Melbourne.
Straight teeth without metal braces – it’s the answer you’ve been looking for.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign treatment consists of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every 2 weeks for the next set of aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position.
Virtual transformation – before and after Invisalign?
A virtual treatment plan is generated by Align Technology’s unique ClinCheck software which shows the series of movements your teeth will go through over the course of the treatment. This allows you to see upfront what your teeth are expected to look like at the end of the treatment. From the results of the ClinCheck software, your custom-made, clear aligners are produced especially for you.
If you’re ready for a smile that transforms your appearance, Invisalign is your answer. Although there are many choices out there, no other treatment works as comfortably as Invisalign.
Is Invisalign treatment suitable for me?
Our patients are loving the option to straighten their teeth without metal brackets. However, Invisalign is not suitable in all cases so you will need to organise a consultation to assess your suitability. Traditional braces may be necessary to fix particular problems.
Getting started with Invisalign
During the initial consultation, we will discuss the issues you have with your teeth and explore what kind of results you’re hoping to achieve. If Invisalign is suitable for you, a treatment plan will be mapped out with your goals in mind. We will take impressions of your teeth and will send these to the Invisalign laboratories for processing.
How long does Invisalign take?
Invisalign aligners should be worn day and night, except when eating, brushing or flossing teeth in order to complete your treatment in the timeline determined by us. You’ll go in for checkups every 4–6 weeks to monitor your progress and to receive your next series of aligners. During the entire treatment process, you’ll notice small movements, and your teeth will gradually move into an even and healthy smile. A full treatment typically includes 18–36 aligners for both the upper and lower teeth, which will take approximately 9–18 months depending on your individual case. After treatment is completed, you may wear a retainer at night to maintain the new position of your teeth.
Are there different types of Invisalign?
There are four versions of Invisalign. All use the same clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth.
- Invisalign Full: This is for full orthodontic cases which take 12–24 months to correct.
- Invisalign Teen: This is specifically for teenagers.
- Invisalign Lite: This is for patients who only need minor adjustment to the front six teeth. Results can be achieved in six months, and can fix minor crowding issues.
- Invisalign i7: This is suitable for fixing issues affecting the front six teeth, with results seen in as little as three months. It is for very minor alterations
What is the cost of Invisalign?
There is a range of costs for Invisalign, and it depends on the version of Invisalign that is used. At the consultation, we will be able to guide you through your options and give you Invisalign costs.
Are there payment plans available for Invisalign Treatment?
Yes of course. An initial deposit is needed, and the balance of treatment is paid over the course of the treatment.
