Commonly Asked Questions

Invisalign Braces – What Are They?

Many people go through orthodontic treatment as a child or adult to straighten their teeth or close gaps. If you’re looking for an alternative to traditional metal braces, you might want to look at Invisalign – a series of clear orthodontic trays called “aligners”. Invisalign is a well-known and popular brand that has been used on millions of patients just like you who wanted to fix their smile.

How Is It Different from Brackets and Wires?

Traditional braces consist of brackets glued to your teeth, connected with wires that help move your teeth into the desired position. Invisalign braces are a set of custom-designed removable clear aligners that slip on over your teeth. Similar to braces, they gradually align your teeth to the right position.

The trays are transparent, which means your treatment often goes unnoticed. Your co-workers and friends probably won’t even notice your teeth are being straightened. As an added bonus, because there are no brackets and wires, you won’t have the dreaded issue of food stuck in your braces.

Will Invisalign Really Straighten My Teeth?

Adults, as well as teens, are choosing Invisalign. There’s no doubting how self-conscious teenagers are, so clear orthodontic correction helps them gain healthy smiles without the potential embarrassment of bracket and wire braces. If your child is attending a secondary school like Albert Park College, St Michael’s Grammar or Melbourne Grammar School, if you look hard enough, you may just see dozens of teenagers with Invisalign braces across Melbourne. You may even see some teachers wearing them too!

We not only love to see our South Melbourne locals with brighter smiles, but we welcome anyone to Dental on Clarendon who is considering Invisalign and would like to get more information from a qualified Invisalign dentist.

Will It Work for Me?

The best candidates for this kind of treatment are teenagers and adults. It is not recommended for primary school aged children because their teeth are still growing and straightening their teeth is more complex.

Invisalign braces are best used to correct gaps in your teeth and minor to moderately crowded teeth. If you have a more complicated issue, such as severe overbite or under-bite, we’ll recommend you proceed with the more traditional type of orthodontic correction.

Do I Need My Teeth Fixed?

A well-aligned smile does wonders for self-confidence. However, orthodontic treatments are not just about looking like a movie star – it also helps to preserve overall oral health! For example, crowded teeth are harder to keep clean. Your toothbrush and floss may not reach all of the surfaces of your teeth, which can encourage cavities and plaque build-up. If you can’t maintain the health of your teeth properly, it might lead to periodontal disease, which has been associated with long-term health issues such as cardiovascular problems and diabetes.

How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Take?

The duration of your treatment depends on various factors, such as how complex your situation is and how regularly you wear your aligners. Our Invisalign dentist will ascertain how long your treatment will most likely take based on your requirements. Most people will wear Invisalign braces for approximately 12 to 18 months, although results may start showing after only a few weeks after the treatment started.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

If you want to know the Invisalign cost in Melbourne, this will depend on how complex your dental issues are, what treatment you require, and how many aligners you will need. Normally, treatment will cost between $5,000 and $7,500.

What Costs More – Braces or Invisalign?

The typical Invisalign cost for Melbourne patients is usually higher than traditional braces. Traditional braces can cost between $2,500 and $6,000. Conversely, Invisalign aligners normally cost between $5000 and $7000.

Caring for your health and safety during these difficult times

 

Your health and safety is always our number one priority, so we are taking additional precautions while caring for you during COVID-19.

A thorough screening process is currently in place to keep patients and staff safe. With these measures in place, we can now conduct routine and emergency dental care for all new and existing patients.

Strict infection guidelines have always been adhered to in our practice, however we have introduced additional precautions, including:

  • Social distancing in the waiting room
  • Hand sanitizer provided on entry to the practice
  • Temperature testing on arrival
  • Minimal additional guests allowed. We allow patients only, with the exception of one parent to children’s appointments, or if a companion is needed to translate.
  • Pre-treatment rinsing. The rinse contains hydrogen peroxide which kills COVID-19.
  • Use of Rubber Dam where feasible
  • Increased decontamination procedures conducted throughout the day

To maintain patient safety and strict infection control measures we are constantly monitoring and modifying regular workflows.
If you have any questions, please speak to our friendly staff for more information.
