Frequently Asked Questions
Listed below are the following characteristics that make an ideal Invisalign candidate:
- Does not have severe oral problems that would demand more extensive treatment procedures. Invisalign is ideal for individuals who have mild orthodontic issues such as irregular dental spacing, slight overbites or underbites, crooked teeth, or mild tooth crowding.
- Is a self-starter who is willing to follow directions and adhere to Invisalign’s requirements. While using Invisalign aligners is simple, they must be worn for an extended duration of time and removed before eating.
Dental restorations treatment may be recommended prior to commencing your Invisalign treatment plan if you have active gum or periodontal disease and tooth decay. Another possibility is that you have dental bridges, dental implants, or TMJ problems, all of which could contribute to the Invisalign aligners not fitting correctly. Our experienced dentists can typically work around your mouth’s problems unless your condition is severe.
While these are general guidelines, the best way to determine whether you are an eligible candidate for Invisalign treatment is to contact us immediately and schedule an orthodontic consultation. We will conduct a thorough examination, inquire about your medical history, and attempt to determine the most appropriate treatment options for improving your smile. If we determine that Invisalign is the best option for you, we will review your treatment plan and address any concerns you may have.
If you’re thinking about getting Invisalign for yourself or your child, here are some essential questions to ask the staff at Maylands Dental Centre, so you have all the information you need before starting the invisible treatment. Listed below are a few questions you can ask during your Invisalign comprehensive consultation:
- Who is a suitable candidate for Invisalign treatment?
- Are the Invisalign braces visible?
- Are there any eating restrictions?
- How effective is Invisalign?
- How long will the treatment last?
- How much will this cost?
- How often will I need to see the orthodontist?
- What happens if an aligner breaks or becomes misplaced?
As already touched upon, Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that correctly aligns teeth. But what does that mean? Well, here’s how Invisalign works.
Invisalign straightens your teeth by using clear sets of aligners created from computer-generated photos and impressions taken of your mouth by your dentist and their team. While a typical brace uses fixed wires to “pull” the teeth into alignment, Invisalign uses a succession of moulds to gradually force your teeth into their new and improved position over months.
Both Invisalign and traditional braces are designed to realign your teeth, resulting in a more attractive smile and improved dental health. While dentists have used traditional braces for decades, Invisalign is a relatively recent innovation developed to satisfy the expectations of modern people. As with any other treatment, Invisalign has benefits and drawbacks that the patient must evaluate.
While Invisalign and braces have considerable similarities, there are more differences.
A few instances include the following:
Visible vs. Clear: While Invisalign aligners are made of clear BPA-free plastic and are practically transparent to others, traditional braces are made of metal wires and elastic bands. This increases their visibility, which might be unsettling for some people.
Convenience: Invisalign braces can be removed from the mouth at any time, as orthodontic patients are advised to wear their trays for 20–22 hours per day. In contrast, traditional braces cannot be removed as they are cemented to the teeth by wires.
Length of Treatment: Invisalign treatment takes much less time than traditional brace treatment. Due to how Invisalign works, patients are only required to wear the trays for six to eighteen months, compared to an average of two years with traditional braces.
Cost: While the initial cost of Invisalign braces is more than traditional metal braces, the recurring costs are comparable. Typically, ceramic braces are more expensive. Please speak with one of our dentists for a more specific estimate of Invisalign prices.
The location of the dental office in Australia and the type of dental treatment you need will both affect how much it costs to get treatment. Treatment with Invisalign aligners can cost anywhere from $6,000 to $9,000, which is more than traditional braces.
