How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign works by using a series of custom-made, clear plastic aligners to gradually shift the teeth into the desired position. The aligners are worn for about two weeks each before being replaced by the next set in the series. The aligners apply gentle pressure to the teeth, causing them to move incrementally. The process is controlled and monitored by your dentist at our clinic, who will evaluate progress and adjust your treatment plan as needed.

Our Process

1. INITIAL CONSULTATION TO ASSESS SUITABILITY AND DISCUSS YOUR GOALS AND EXPECTATIONS (30 MINS)

The first step in the Invisalign treatment process is to have an initial consultation with your dentist at Dentists of Ivanhoe to assess your suitability for the treatment. This will also give you the opportunity to discuss your goals and expectations with your dentist and ask any questions you may have about the treatment.

2. PHOTOS AND DIGITAL SCAN TO BEGIN INVISALIGN JOURNEY (30 MINS)

During this stage, your dentist will take photos and a digital scan of your teeth to help create a customised treatment plan. This information will be used to create a 3D image of your teeth and jaw, which will be used to determine the best course of treatment.

3. PLACEMENT OF ATTACHMENTS AND ISSUING ALIGNERS (60 MINS)

Once the treatment plan has been established, your dentist will place small attachments on your teeth and issue you with your first set of clear aligners. You will wear each set of aligners for one to two weeks, before moving onto the next set. The attachments help to guide the movement of your teeth during treatment, making it more effective.

4. APPOINTMENTS EVERY 4-6 WEEKS UNTIL COMPLETION OF TREATMENT (10-20 MINS EACH)

During your treatment, you will need to attend appointments with your dentist every 4-6 weeks to monitor your progress and receive your next set of aligners. These appointments will typically take between 10-20 minutes and allow your dentist to ensure that your treatment is progressing as expected.

5. COMPLETE TREATMENT - REMOVE ATTACHMENTS, ISSUE RETAINERS, FINAL PHOTOS (60 MINS)

Once your treatment is complete, your dentist will remove the attachments, issue you with a set of retainers, and take final photos to compare with your initial photos. This final appointment will take approximately 60 minutes, and your dentist will provide you with instructions on how to care for your retainers to ensure the longevity of your results.

NOTE:

The length of each appointment and the duration of the entire Invisalign treatment may vary based on individual cases.

Benefits of Invisalign Treatment

The Invisalign treatment presents several benefits that can improve your smile and confidence, including:

Virtually Invisible (and Comfortable!)

The clear plastic aligners are nearly invisible, so no one will know you’re undergoing treatment, while their smooth and sleek design maximises comfort.

Removable.

Invisalign aligners are crafted from SmartTrack flexible material, allowing for easy removal and placement, unlike the fixed nature of braces. With Invisalign, you can indulge in your favourite foods without restriction.

Less Emergency Appointments.

You won’t have to rush in to see us due to broken braces or wires. The aligners apply gentle pressure to the teeth, so there’s minimal disruption to your daily routine.

Effective.

Invisalign treatment has a high success rate and is often a preferred option for those looking for Invisalign near Ivanhoe or surrounding suburbs.

While the cost of Invisalign in Melbourne can vary, it’s often a more affordable option compared to traditional braces, and some dental insurance plans may cover the treatment.

Invisalign treatment presents an opportunity to enhance your smile with a discreet, personalised, convenient, gentle, and budget-friendly solution.
