Invisalign’s removable aligners are designed with comfort and discretion in mind. They’re a clear braces alternative which have proven quite popular in recent times.
So, how are they different to normal, traditional braces?
Traditional braces remain on your teeth throughout the treatment period, whereas in contrast, Invisalign braces may be removed for cleaning or eating. This means that the somewhat uncomfortable sensation you can get while eating, when wearing braces, is unlikely to be an issue when you have Invisalign. This means you can eat, brush and floss as you usually do without worrying about getting food trapped in wires and brackets.
Invisalign offers a modern solution for correcting a variety of teeth issues. While it isn’t designed for severe orthodontic cases, Invisalign treatments are known for handling a range of mild to moderate bite problems. This includes gappy teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites, and crowded and unevenly spaced teeth.
Invisalign can straighten your teeth and is an effective and discreet alternative to traditional braces.
Invisalign is a set of aligners that work in a very similar way to traditional braces by gradually moving teeth into their correct positions within the mouth, with the added benefit of only needing to be worn for a certain amount of hours a day. This means they can be removed for cleaning, eating, for special events, you name it!
Overall, Invisalign is a modern option to achieving the smile you’ve been dreaming of.
Many people want to strengthen their teeth, but they don’t want the visibility of metal brackets.
The aligners are invisible trays made custom to your teeth. Every couple of weeks, your trays will be replaced with a new set of trays, gradually moving your teeth into their ideal position over time! Simply pop the trays is similar to a retainer, and you’re ready to go. These invisible aligners are suitable for people wanting to perfect their smile later in life, as they offer a discreet straightening option to both adults and teens alike.
Made from soft plastic, the aligner itself does not cause discomfort or irritation to your gums and lips.
When receiving Invisalign treatment, you may feel a little pressure on your teeth when your aligners are first changed. However, this is entirely normal and wears off. Invisalign is designed to move the teeth gradually, so there is minimal discomfort.
The length of time your Invisalign treatment times can take is judged on a case-by-case basis. This is to assure fantastic long-term results and to take you on a gentle journey to achieving your perfect smile.
For closing gaps in teeth, a gap of 6mm may take up to 24 months to complete. For crowded teeth and to straighten teeth, Invisalign can take between 6 to 12 months.
There are several ways to clean Invisalign trays—the first and recommended way to clean Invisalign braces is with Denture Cleansing Tablets. Denture Cleansing Tablets kill the bacteria that builds up over time.
If you haven’t used Denture Tablets before, they are straightforward and easy to use. Simply fill a cleaning tub with warm water (hot water will warp the aligner trays), dissolve a packet into the tray, and leave them to soak for 15 minutes, and rinse.
Another option is to simply brush Invisalign clear aligners with a soft-bristled toothbrush and rinse. However, this won’t achieve the same level of cleanliness as the Denture Tablet method.
Traditional braces depend on brackets and metal wire to move teeth into their correct position. Invisalign involves wearing a set of clear plastic aligners, which are swapped for another set every couple of weeks.
Invisalign’s removable aligners offer a more straightforward way to clean your teeth regularly, making oral hygiene easier to maintain. Traditional braces, while still very effective and a great option for many people, can sometimes trap food debris in-between the wires and brackets, encouraging bacterial growth. Invisalign aligners removes that risk altogether.
The wonderful thing about Invisalign is that you can see them at all! Invisalign is a series of custom clear aligners that are barely noticeable within the mouth.
Generally speaking, you can expect to pay about $4,500 in Perth, Western Australia for basic alignment and between $6,000-9,000 for the full treatment.
This is a general estimate and, depending on your individual situation, the price can vary. Invisalign costs can vary from case to case depending on how complex your issue is, and how long the treatment will take.
