Invisalign Perth – Affordable Invisalign Treatment in Perth, WA

Do you want to straighten up your smile without the mouthful of metal?

Invisalign is the clear aligner system that has been chosen by millions of patients worldwide for its comfort and efficacy. A virtually invisible alternative to metal brackets and wires, Invisalign is a modern orthodontic appliance that will keep you smiling the whole time that you’re wearing it – and even more afterwards!

The clear removable aligners are custom-made to fit your mouth and, unlike braces, you can easily remove them before eating and drinking. Practically invisible, not only do removable aligners eliminate the problem of getting food stuck in braces, but they allow you to manage your oral hygiene with continued brushing and flossing. Enjoy the foods you love and smile with confidence, with Invisalign. Call now to arrange a FREE consultation with one of our highly experienced staff at Carillon City Dental Perth and assess your suitability for Invisalign.

Invisalign Can Be Used On:

  • Overcrowded Teeth
  • Widely Spaced Teeth
  • Crossbite
  • Overbite
  • Underbite

Background of Invisalign:

A lot of people are unhappy with the state of their teeth but avoid visiting an orthodontist due to embarrassment at the prospect of traditional braces. This is particularly the case with older clients who have gone past their teenage years. Invisalign can be a great solution if you want your teeth aligned without obvious, visible braces so you can maintain your lifestyle.

Invisalign has a unique approach to straightening teeth by using an ‘invisible’ system so you don’t need to have traditional braces attached to your teeth. Invisalign involves using a series of clear aligners which gradually straighten teeth over time. This means you have a comfortable and discreet option when it comes to your orthodontic treatment while also getting the results you want.

Compared to traditional braces, Invisalign has the advantage of being more comfortable and easier to keep clean. You can also eat what you want without having to worry about food getting stuck and you can easily keep up your regular dental hygiene practices, such as flossing.  

Effectiveness of Invisalign:

Rather than having braces attached to your teeth which are then adjusted by your dentist, Invisalign involves a number of invisible, custom-made aligners which fit over your teeth and are changed every few weeks to gradually align your teeth. Your dentist will take photos and x-rays, as well as scans or impressions of your teeth, to make a 3D treatment plan. Custom aligners are then manufactured according to this plan.

Invisalign can be used to correct overbite, crossbite, underbite, and overcrowded or widely spaced teeth. This discreet treatment means that you can go about your day without having to feel self-conscious about braces. However, you need to be diligent and wear your Invisalign aligners at least 22 hours a day, only removing them to eat.

Invisalign Technology:

Invisalign aligners look like mouthguards but are much thinner and less noticeable. They are made from non-toxic, medical grade thermoplastic material which are manufactured from an impression or scan of your teeth. Invisalign uses SMARTForce technology in the manufacturing of your customised aligners which will gradually change over time to move your teeth into the ideal position. Invisalign is designed to be comfortable and not cause ulceration on the gums and cheeks, unlike traditional braces. Invisalign also comes without the serious discomfort of having braces tightened every few weeks.

Invisalign Procedure:

The process of your dentist getting your Invisalign treatment ready to go is relatively simple. After getting x-rays, pictures, impressions and scans, your dentist will develop your treatment plan and your customised aligners will be manufactured and shipped to the dental practice. You’ll receive a series of aligners, which usually consist of three or four in a set, which you’ll need to wear each day. You will then be required to change aligners every two weeks or so – this is simple to do as your aligners will be numbered.

You’ll need to visit your dentist every six to eight weeks so they can check the progress of the aligners, and to give you the next set of aligners. Once your treatment is finished, you may need to wear retainers to maintain the new alignment of your teeth. The length of the whole process will depend on how much adjustment is required but the average length of time for adults is 12 months.

Cost of Invisalign:

As with any orthodontic treatment, the price involved with Invisalign will depend on your specific situation and the complexity of your case. The cost will also vary and you could expect to pay anything between $2500 and $7500 for the whole treatment. To help with paying this cost, Carillon City Dental offers payment plans so you can pay in instalments for up to 24 months, rather than having to pay up front. For a more accurate quote, it’s best to speak to your dentist about your specific treatment needs. For more information on payment plans, click here.
