Invisalign

Proven technology that straightens your teeth invisibly

Invisalign

Invisalign is the greatest advancement in orthodontics to date. This treatment method uses virtually invisible aligners to move your teeth into position, and at Port Macquarie Orthodontics we’re recognised as a Black Diamond provider of this treatment.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign doesn’t use brackets and archwires to straighten your teeth. Instead, this method uses clear plastic aligners which look a little bit like thin sports mouthguards to guide your teeth into place.

The process begins with 3D imaging equipment which we use to create your smile. This means we can see what your smile will look like after treatment, before you’ve even begun! The images we take are then used to create custom-made aligners, designed specifically for the condition of your teeth. 

These aligners exert mild pressure on the teeth that need correcting in order to straighten your smile and will be changed approximately every two weeks as your teeth move.

Benefits of Invisalign

One of the greatest benefits of Invisalign is that the aligners are removable. This means you can take them out to eat, brush and floss and at other times during the week, such as client meetings or evenings out. However, for best results the aligners must be worn for 22 hours a day. Any less and you could delay your treatment time.

Types of Invisalign

There are four different versions of Invisalign:

  • Invisalign Full – the original version of this treatment which takes between 12 and 24 months.
  • Invisalign Teen – the version just for teenagers.
  • Invisalign Lite – this version is only suitable for problems associated with the front six teeth, but results can be seen in as little as six months.
  • Invisalign i7 – another quick treatment option to correct problems of the front six teeth, Invisalign i7 can bring about results in three months. 

Is Invisalign suitable for me?

Invisalign is viewed as the ideal cosmetic treatment and offers solutions for both adults and children. Saying this, as a cosmetic treatment it is not as effective as traditional braces for some severe issues. Depending on the nature of your malocclusion (bad bite) we may recommend a different solution.
