ABOUT INVISALIGN®

The clear alternative to braces!

Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment comprising a series of custom-designed, clear aligners. Each aligner is precisely manufactured using SmartTrack® materials to comfortably fit your teeth and gradually straighten them. They are replaced every one to two weeks until the desired outcome is attained.

We place SmartForce® attachments to various teeth to help with the movement of the aligners. The attachments are tooth coloured and barely noticeable.

Dr Andrew and his team monitor the entire treatment from start to finish, with appointments required every six to eight weeks to ensure your progress stays on track.

What are the benefits of Invisalign®?

Invisalign® aligners offer numerous benefits over traditional braces, the most obvious being their transparency, making them the more aesthetically appealing option for straightening teeth.

Invisalign® has many other benefits:

  • Easy to remove.
  • No food restrictions. Continue to eat the foods you enjoy most!
  • Simpler to clean your teeth.
  • Lifestyle friendly. Continue to play your favourite sports without worrying about possible breakages.
  • Fewer emergency visits for issues such as broken brackets and wires.
  • More comfortable.
  • Clearer treatment timeline.

What issues can Invisalign® treat?

Invisalign® fixes an open bite, over bite, cross bite, crowding, gap teeth, under bite, severe crowding and mild crowding.

Who can use Invisalign®?

Invisalign® offers treatments to suit children, teenagers and adults, giving them all a chance to experience a straighter smile.

Invisalign® First, Phase 1 – Ages 6-10

Invisalign® First improves children’s smiles as they grow. It is designed to treat a broad range of teeth straightening issues, from narrow dental arches to crowding.

Dr Andrew was specially selected by Invisalign® to prescribe this interceptive treatment due to his extensive experience and knowledge of orthodontics and Invisalign®.

Invisalign® for Teens – Ages 11-17

Many teenagers lead active lives while also facing challenges around image and self-esteem. For those wanting to straighten their teeth, Invisalign® for Teens offers an alternative to traditional metal braces which can interfere with playing sport or cause them to feel self-conscious about their appearance.

Invisalign® Express – up to 7 aligners

Invisalign® Express is a shorter duration orthodontic treatment, ideal for people with very minor crowding or spacing concerns.

Invisalign® Lite – up to 14 aligners

Invisalign® Lite is suitable for minor crowding and spacing concerns and is commonly recommended to patients who have problems associated with orthodontic relapse.

Invisalign® Moderate – up to 26 aligners

Invisalign® Moderate allows for a more complex orthodontic treatment including difficult tooth movements and adjustments. You are entitled to an optional set if, for any reason throughout your treatment, you require additional aligners to refine movements.

Invisalign® Comprehensive – as many aligners as needed to achieve your goal

Invisalign® Comprehensive is designed for the most complex orthodontic issues, with unlimited additional aligners included for any refinements which might be needed throughout the course of your treatment. It also includes the option of a built-in mandibular advancement feature to keep the jaw positioned correctly. Your doctor will advise if this is required.

How much does Invisalign® cost?

The cost of Invisalign® varies and depends on a number of factors including the time it takes to straighten your teeth and the number of aligners needed.

To determine the cost, please book a no-obligation, complimentary Invisalign® consultation where your doctor will consider your desired outcome, assess your smile and discuss your treatment options. You will then receive a quote tailored to your smile.

We include an iTero Element® Scanner 3D image at no charge (private health funds – rebate only/no gap) at your initial consultation. It allows us to simulate the new smile you could achieve with Invisalign®!

Many Withers Dental patients take advantage of a two-year interest-free payment plan to fund their Invisalign® treatment. You can read more about payment options on our financial information page.

How long does Invisalign® treatment take?

Invisalign® treatment generally takes between two months and two years, depending on the complexity of the case.

After your complimentary Invisalign® consultation and your personalised treatment course is decided, we take two X-rays of your teeth – an OPG (orthopantomogram) and a Lat Ceph (lateral cephalometric radiograph). These are sent to Invisalign® together with photographs of your teeth.

Your doctor then liaises with Invisalign® to create what is called a Clincheck®. It involves mapping a designated path for your treatment – from the smallest shifts to your desired smile outcome. This takes the guess work out of orthodontic treatment and eliminates the wait-and-see game.

Once the Clincheck® is finalised, your personalised aligners will be manufactured and shipped to Withers Dental within two to three weeks.

You are now ready to start your new smile journey!

You will receive six aligners, and your doctor will insert the first together with any required SmartForce® attachments (tooth coloured). You must wear each aligner for at least 22 hours per day for one week (remove when eating).

You will receive further aligners at your six-week check-up.

Once the treatment is completed, you will receive clear bonded retainers to place behind your front teeth to prevent them from moving to their original positions. You will also get clear night-time retainers.

Please contact our reception team if you require any repairs with your bonded or clear retainers.

Because we are as excited as you are when it comes to creating and maintaining a beautiful, shining, confident smile, we offer a *complimentary Philips Zoom! at-home tooth whitening kit at the end of your Invisalign® journey!
