Invisalign provides a clear and discreet teeth straightening option that doesn’t get in the way of your smile. So you can continue to enjoy life with minimal disruptions while your aligner gently does its work. If you’re considering Invisalign in Sydney for your teeth, book a free Invisalign consultation with Dr Petronilla Grace to get an assessment.
Our Invisalign dentist will use X-rays, 3D scans, videos and photos to collect data that we send to the Invisalign laboratory to get a 3D model of your teeth.
3D imaging and treatment plan
At the following appointment, you will receive your personalised ClinCheck®, which will visually show you projections of how your teeth will shift throughout treatment and what the end results will look like.
Fitting the aligners
If you would like to proceed, we will have your Invisalign aligners made for you. Once they are ready, we will let you know when you can pick them up from the clinic and ensure that they make a proper snug fit.
Aftercare and maintenance
We will let you know how to properly care for your Invisalign and teeth for the projected treatment. You will likely also need a new set of Invisalign clear aligners every 4-6 weeks, with slight alterations to help move your teeth.
Clean your aligners regularly
It’s important to clean your Invisalign aligners regularly to keep them free of bacteria and prevent discolouration. You can clean them with a soft-bristled toothbrush and mild soap or with specialised cleaning crystals. Avoid using hot water or abrasive cleaners, as these can damage the aligners.
Wear your aligners as directed
Invisalign aligners need to be worn for at least 22 hours a day to be effective. It’s important to wear them as directed by your orthodontist to ensure that your teeth are moving as they should. Removing them for extended periods can prolong the treatment time and affect the final results.
Store your aligners properly
When you’re not wearing your Invisalign aligners, it’s important to store them properly to prevent loss or damage. Use the provided storage case to keep them safe and clean. Avoid leaving them exposed to the sun or heat, as this can warp the aligners and affect their fit.
Invisalign for Adults
Invisalign treatment is a popular option for adults looking to straighten teeth, especially among professionals that count on making appearances.
Invisalign for Teens
Teenagers tend to be self-conscious already, with a lot of pressure and changes around puberty. Invisalign offers a discreet teeth alignment treatment for self-conscious teens, with no metal abutments or wires that get in the way of their smile.
Invisalign for Children
Invisalign offers a teeth straightening option for children as young as 6 – 10.
Invisalign for Overbite
Invisalign treatment can fix a mild or moderate overbite (although treatment time will likely be longer). Correcting a severe overbite, however, requires traditional Orthodontics.
