What is Invisalign?

The Invisalign system is essentially an invisible and very hygienic orthodontic treatment that corrects your bite and straightens your teeth.

The Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made aligners that are created for you using 3D technology.

They are made of an invisible plastic that you wear throughout the day and gradually you will notice your teeth moving to an ideal position.

It’s pretty rare for someone to notice that you’re wearing them and therefore this maintains your lifestyle during treatment.

Invisalign aligners look similar to clear retainers or teeth whitening trays.

How does it work?

Once we have decided Invisalign is right for you, the team at Bayview Dental Claremont will complete a full assessment of your teeth, obtain X-rays and then get some impressions sent off for scanning.

This will allow us to make a 3D treatment plan known as a ClinCheck treatment Plan which will be used to design your custom made Invisalign aligners.

The 3D planning software allows you to visualise what your likely final tooth position will be and once you are happy with the result, we will be able to insert your Invisalign aligners with then 1 to 2 weeks.

You will get a new aligner approximately every two weeks until the final position of your teeth is accomplished.

Is Invisalign a new technology?

Although Invisalign has been marketed as a very sophisticated and modern technology, there have been over 6 million patients worldwide that have undergone Invisalign treatment. It is one of the fastest growing sectors in the dental industry and a very predictable way to move your teeth.

What are the advantages of Invisalign treatment over traditional braces?

Virtually invisible – Invisalign aligners are the clear alternative to traditional braces and allow you to keep your confidence, smile, and lifestyle during treatment.

Comfortable– Invisalign aligners are more comfortable than traditional braces which sometimes can irritate your gums or the inside of your mouth. Invisalign patients usually only feel a mild discomfort with aligners and most people refer to this sensation as a tight pressure.

Maintaining oral hygiene– Invisalign aligners are removable, so you are able to get your teeth cleaned professionally by the dentist and maintain your teeth by flossing and brushing at home as usual.

Diet– as Invisalign aligners are removable you are able to eat what you want when you want!

Fewer visits to the dentist– Invisalign treatment usually requires fewer appointments than some types of braces.

Visualise The Movement– Invisalign treatment allows you to visualise each step of the treatment process from before getting you’re in this line to the end

Invisalign FAQs

How long will the treatment take?

The length of your treatment will depend on your specific needs and can be discussed after consultation. That average treatment time for an adult is between 9 and 18 months.
Invisalign recommends that each aligner is worn for between 20 to 22 hours a day to get the best results in a timely manner.
Depending on your specific needs, an Invisalign check-up is completed every 2 months on average to see how your treatment is progressing. During your check-ups we will be able to make sure the aligners are well fitting and make any adjustments as necessary.

Invisalign will usually allow you to see results after a few months of starting the treatment.

No, you can eat what you want in the treatment because the aligners are removed during eating or drinking. It is recommended that you floss and brush after each meal to maintain proper oral hygiene and allow your Invisalign aligners to seat properly.
Except for cool water, we recommend that you don’t drink while wearing the aligners. This is to avoid cavities and stains forming on your teeth or warping your aligners due to hot drinks.

Smoking is discouraged because they can cause your aligners to become discoloured.

Alcohol has the possibility of increasing the risk of tooth decay if you decide to leave your aligners in place.

You should avoid chewing gum during aligner use as this can affect the success of your treatment.

Similar to other orthodontic treatments you may have a temporary effect on your speech during initial aligner use. Occasionally this can lead to ulcers which can affect your speech and you should find any issues with speech should disappear within a couple of weeks.

All aligners are made of non-toxic medical grade plastic and can be worn during pregnancy.

Orthodontic retention is an essential part of treatment to maintain straight teeth. The type of retainer required would depend on the type of treatment you had completed.

Some retainers are fixed to your teeth others are able to be removed.

We are also able to offer you Vivera retainers which are able to be scanned with Invisalign and assist with excellent retention in a comfortable way.

Orthodontic treatment is a complex and specific situation that is discussed based on your individual needs. The fee for Invisalign varies from $2,000 to $8,000. To assist you with this cost, at Bayview Dental Claremont, we offer payment plans so that you can pay in instalments for up to 15 months.

These installments start from as little as $50 per week.

We also choose not to use any third-party aligner technology that can occasionally be marketed as Invisalign. If you see cheaper costs, make sure you ask whether they are using genuine products.
