The invisible alternative to metal braces
For those who do not wish to wear metal braces, there's an excellent alternative – Invisalign.
Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, close-fitting plastic aligner trays to gently move your teeth over time. These sequential aligners are designed to move your teeth a small amount each time, and are made of a medical grade, BPA-free plastic. Using the latest computer-aided design and manufacturing technology, each set of aligners are customised and tailored to each individual. One of the biggest advantages of using Invisalign is that the aligners are barely noticeable, keeping your orthodontic treatment discreet and comfortable! For the most effective results, aligners need to be worn for the entire day, except when eating and during teeth brushing. It’s best to wear them as your dentist instructs, so as to avoid any delay in treatment duration. Treatment duration depends on the severity of the problem and can take anywhere from 3 to 24 months.

How Invisalign works
The treatment starts with a thorough dental consultation at our clinic. During the consultation, you can ask us as many questions as you like. Our dentist will answer all your questions to your satisfaction before we commence the actual treatment.
Once you decide to go ahead, we will evaluate your smile and then chart out a highly customized smile correction plan that suits your specific goals and requirements. We will discuss the plan with you and answer any questions you may have. Your custom aligners will then be created and our dentist will show you how to use them.
You will typically be wearing each set of aligners for about 22 hours every day. The aligners are changed on a regular basis as directed by our dentist. The aligners will slowly shift your teeth to the correct position. At the end of the treatment you will have a gorgeous smile.
IS INVISALIGN RIGHT FOR ME?
Invisalign has been on the market for more than 20 years, this is longer than most copy brands available. It is known to be the pioneer of clear aligner technology and throughout the years, this product has improved and been refined, making it most effective at straightening teeth.
Invisalign's revolutionary aligners can be used to treat most problems affecting your teeth, both major and minor. At Maylands Dental Centre, we recommend Invisalign to patients who:
- Want a quick fix - If your main concern is a slightly crooked front tooth or an annoying gap between one of your front six teeth, then Invisalign aligners could correct this in as little as three to six months.
- Want orthodontic treatment to fit in with their lifestyle – Our Invisalign patients get the added bonus of not needing to be self-conscious about wearing braces.
- Want to achieve the smile they've always dreamed of - Invisalign treatment is especially popular among our adult patients as it makes having orthodontic treatment easy and very discreet.
The first step to achieving your beautifully straight smile is to visit one of our certified Invisalign provider dentists for your initial consultation. During this appointment, our dentist will assess your current condition and recommend your personalised course of treatment with Invisalign. You will also be provided with an individual treatment plan detailing the procedure and all costs involved. From there, you can decide to begin the evaluation process, which involves taking a series of impressions and photos of your teeth. These are sent to Invisalign headquarters in the United States, who will provide us with a 3D digital simulation of your potential result. We then organise a no cost follow up consultation to review and show you your customised smile. This will allow you to have an idea of what your final smile will look like, prior to beginning.
The cost of Invisalign will vary depending on the complexity and expected duration of your case. This will be assessed at your initial consultation. The cost for treatment starts from $4500.
Our practice offers 0% (no interest) financing options so that you can start treatment right away. We also offer flexible payments that fit your monthly budget so that you can easily afford to have your ideal smile as soon as possible, even if you don’t have dental insurance. If you do have private insurance, Invisalign treatment may qualify for coverage under your level of cover. Call us today to schedule a consultation.
