Invisalign® at Artarmon Dentists

Woman inserting invisible bracesSome people are born with teeth that erupt crookedly. Though many cases are slight, some are more severe and play an important role in your oral health and psychological wellbeing. At Artarmon Dentists, our team understands the significance of teeth and how they affect your self-confidence. In addition to regular braces, we provide Invisalign.

The aligners involved in Invisalign are created from a virtually invisible, smooth and comfortable plastic material. Every two weeks, you’ll switch out your aligners to the next in the series. Each will gradually shift your teeth in the direction they need to move.

Since they’re removable, you can easily clean each aligner and your teeth and gums. You won’t have to worry about not being able to brush or floss, which reduces the risk of issues once treatment is completed.

Advantages of Invisalign

  • Virtually invisible – Keep your lifestyle and confidence while you complete the treatment. It’s a clear alternative to traditional braces!
  • Comfortable – No brackets or wires are involved that irritate your gums or the inside of your mouth.
  • Better hygiene – Since you can take out your aligners to clean your teeth, you’ll keep your good oral health.
  • Fewer checkups – Typically, Invisalign requires fewer dental visits than other types of braces.
  • A before-and-after picture – You can look at each stage of the treatment process from start to finish before proceeding.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic system with an innovative approach. Using SmartForce technology, custom-made aligners are created just for you. As they are completely removable and clear, most people will have no idea that you’re wearing them as you progress through treatment. Only dentists trained in Invisalign are qualified to provide these orthodontics.

How does Invisalign work?

Once you have been evaluated and decided to embark upon treatment with Invisalign, your dentist will take X-rays, photos and scans of your teeth. Your records are used to create your 3D ClinCheck treatment plan. This system is then used to design your aligners. You’ll also be able to see the final position of your teeth. After your aligners are made, they’ll be shipped to us and you can pick them up. You’ll wear each set for about two weeks until treatment is completed.

What costs are involved?

We’ll be able to give you a full picture of the costs once we have assessed your requirements for treatment. Typically, the cost starts around $3000 and will depend on how many aligners you’ll need. When you look at the costs and benefits, the ratio that Invisalign offers is the same or better than other orthodontic techniques.

Are payment plans available for Invisalign?

Many of our patients enjoy separating payments out over a certain time frame. If you are interested in an installment plan, we’ll be happy to discuss the possibilities with you.
