Orthodontic treatment is a long process that can be uncomfortable and expensive. Plus, you have to wear braces for at least a year.
At Maylands Dental Centre, we offer Invisalign treatment, which is a modern way to straighten your teeth without having to wear metal braces. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that are custom-made for your teeth, so you can still eat and drink what you want while you’re wearing them. You’ll see results in as little as 12 weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions
Straightening your teeth can be a life-changing experience that allows you to smile without feeling self-conscious. Orthodontic technology advancements now allow for more modest brace alternatives with quicker treatment times.
The following are the most common dental problems that an orthodontist can treat:
- Overcrowding and spacing
- Jaw misalignment
- Overbites, underbites, and open bites
- Gum problems
- Unparalleled dental midlines
- Problems with chewing and talking
The length of orthodontic treatment varies depending on the patient. While some issues require less time to fix than others, the average orthodontic treatment lasts about two years. On the other hand, dentists can cure more minor problems in as little as six months, whereas more complicated issues can take three years or more. Your dentist is the best person to ask about treatment times for your teeth.
Most parents are aware that their children’s dental care should begin in early childhood. According to research, the optimal age for an orthodontic evaluation is between the ages of 8 and 10, when a child typically has a mix of baby and mature teeth.
Beginning orthodontic treatment in a child’s early years aids in the prevention of developing dental disorders and is highly advantageous for good oral hygiene. Keep in mind that, while they may go for an evaluation, it may take one to five years following the initial evaluation to begin treatment.
When considering orthodontic treatment, it’s crucial to understand the differences between Invisalign and traditional braces. This information can help you make an informed decision based on factors such as cost, appearance, comfort, effectiveness, convenience, and maintenance.
Cost: Traditional braces are generally more affordable, while Invisalign costs can vary depending on the number of aligner trays required, which is determined by the complexity of the tooth adjustments needed.
Appearance: Invisalign offers a nearly invisible treatment option compared to traditional metal braces, making it more appealing to those seeking a discreet orthodontic solution.
Comfort: Invisalign is often perceived as more comfortable because it applies less pressure on the teeth and does not have sharp edges that could cause discomfort, unlike traditional braces.
Effectiveness: Both Invisalign and traditional braces effectively straighten teeth, but patient compliance plays a crucial role in the success of Invisalign treatment due to its removable nature.
Convenience: Traditional braces do not require removal, but may impose dietary restrictions. Invisalign allows patients to enjoy a wider variety of foods, but necessitates proper removal and storage of aligner trays.
Care and cleaning: Maintaining oral hygiene is vital for both treatments. Teeth cleaning with braces involves standard brushing and flossing, while Invisalign requires additional cleaning of the aligner trays alongside regular oral care.
Post-Treatment Follow-Up: Regular orthodontic visits are necessary for both braces and Invisalign patients, with braces requiring monthly appointments and Invisalign every 4-6 weeks. After completing either treatment, patients must wear a retainer at night to maintain the new tooth positions.
Choosing between Invisalign or traditional braces depends on individual preferences and priorities, such as cost, aesthetics, comfort, and convenience. A thorough consultation with our team at Maylands Dental Centre will help determine the most suitable treatment option for each patient’s unique situation.

During an initial consultation appointment, you will explain your concerns about your teeth and smile to the dentist. The dentist will examine your teeth and other oral tissues. Another staff member may take notes on what the dentist discovers. A panoramic x-ray may be taken to allow the dentist to see what is behind your gums. Digital photographs are also commonly taken. You and your dentist can discuss recommended treatment, treatment fees, and payment plans.
