Like braces, clear aligners such as Invisalign are a tool. Rather than a one size fits all appliance, the Invisalign tool is still controlled by our Orthodontist who does your digital 3D treatment planning. It is this digital plan that Invisalign uses to create your series of clear plastic aligners, customised specifically to your teeth and your smile goals.
Our Adelaide practice is committed to putting your teeth straightening results first. We believe in giving you a choice of either Invisalign or braces and will recommend the appliance that will give you your best smile. Our orthodontic recommendations are based on what is best for you, not what is best for our bank balance. We believe in a gentle approach -we’ll never ask you to start treatment with aligners in order to improve our supplier discounts or to pay our staff a commission. We’ll give you straight advice and patient-centred treatment.
The Invisalign system offers several product lines:
You heard it, express treatment in clear aligners! If it’s the front of your smile that’s bothering you, then Invisalign Express may be your answer. The tool focuses on the anterior section of your smile and because Invisalign Express comes with all the bells and whistles that mail order aligners don’t, results can be achieved in as little as 3 months. Express treatment is also available in our ceramic and metal braces line if you prefer an appliance that is ‘set and forget’.
Another great option if you only need minor tooth movement, but those pesky back teeth are stopping the ability to move your front teeth into alignment. Expect results in 6 to 12 months.
This one has it all. Beautiful results for even the most complicated tooth movement. If you are going to invest time and money into getting your teeth straight, you might as well do it right the first time and get a smile you’ll love for life.
This Early preventative treatment for young children (7 to 10 years) minimises the need for orthodontic treatment in the future. By intervening early and guiding the growth of the jaws, you are setting the foundation for a beautiful future smile.
The youth line of clear aligners (Invisalign Teen) provides the same effective treatment for teenagers as it does for adults, but with some added benefits. We all know, that Invisalign only works if your teen is actually wearing them. So there is a monitoring device on every aligner which shows you and your teen whether they have been wearing their aligner enough, or whether it’s been out of their mouth for too long. If they lose an aligner, don’t worry, we’ve got some backups. The clear plastic aligners are gentle but strong enough to push the teeth into alignment, creating a beautiful smile for years to come. For added peace of mind, all Invisalign clear aligners are made from a patented medical grade plastic that is BPA free.
