Get the perfect smile without sacrificing your lifestyle with our Orthodontic Treatments
Many people are self-conscious about their smiles but don’t want to go through the hassle and pain of traditional braces.
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. Call us today at 08 9370 5464 and schedule an Invisalign consultation to learn more about how we can help you achieve a beautiful smile.

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.
There are several crucial differences between Invisalign and traditional braces. However, understanding the differences can help you decide.
Price: If treatment costs are a concern, traditional braces are usually the more affordable option. Invisalign costs will vary depending on how many trays are required. The number of trays is dependent on the severity of the changes needed to your teeth.
Appearance: The most apparent difference between braces and Invisalign is appearance, and Invisalign will always win. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign is nearly unnoticeable. If you want your teeth straightened discreetly, Invisalign is the best option.
Comfort: Invisalign tends to be more comfortable than traditional braces because it applies less pressure to the teeth overall. Braces can also have sharp edges that cut the inner lip and tongue.
Effectiveness: Braces have been used for years to straighten teeth and improve smiles. The patient cannot remove it and it must be worn 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Since Invisalign trays are removable, patients may not always adhere to the recommended use time. If you lose or forget your trays, your teeth will shift while not wearing them.
Convenience: Both braces and Invisalign have benefits and drawbacks. Braces are convenient because you don’t have to remove them, but they can restrict your diet. While Invisalign allows you to eat your favorite hard or sticky foods, remembering to remove and store the trays properly is sometimes overlooked.
Care and cleaning: Cleaning your teeth is essential, whether you have braces or Invisalign. Cleaning with braces is usually more manageable because you can brush and floss normally. If food is stuck in the metal, use a tiny brush to clean it. Brushing and flossing are the same with Invisalign, but cleaning the trays takes more effort. After each meal, clean the trays. Rinse and brush with warm water or the Invisalign cleaning solution.
Post-Treatment Follow-Up: Regular orthodontic visits are advised for both braces and Invisalign. This is usually once a month for braces and every 4-6 weeks for Invisalign. After braces treatment, you will need to wear a retainer (typically only at night) to keep the teeth in place. Without it, your teeth may move back to their original position. Furthermore, after Invisalign treatment, you must wear a tray at night.
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.
