Invisalign® Teeth Straightening Port Macquarie

Our patients are always amazed by how far teeth straightening technology has come since they were growing up. Gone are the days when the only option for straight teeth was to have metal brackets placed for the duration of the treatment. Today, thanks to Invisalign® technology at TL Dental in Port Macquarie we can give you a straight smile you've always wanted, without braces. Our adult patients find this a more convenient and discreet way to straighten their teeth. If you've always wanted a straighter smile, then Invisalign® could be for you.

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® are a series of clear, almost invisible, aligners that you change every two weeks without having to attend an appointment. The aligner gently moves your teeth, and with each aligner, you get closer to your final tooth position that we plan at the beginning of treatment.

You remove your aligner to eat and drink, and the rest of the time they sit snugly in your mouth as they are custom made to fit. Most patients find that in days they become accustomed to wearing them.

What makes Invisalign® so unique

  • Invisalign® aligners are, unlike traditional braces, are removable so maintaining your oral hygiene by brushing, and flossing is easy
  • The aligners are thin and discreet so almost imperceptible if you need to take a family photo or deliver an important work presentation you can easily take them out and replace them straight after
  • They don't tend to rub and hurt your gums and cheeks in that way traditional braces can as they are less bulky
  • They are fantastic when you are time poor as they require less frequent appointments
  • You will be able to visualise your final result, so there is no guessing or imagining what your new smile will look like after treatment

What is the Invisalign® treatment process?

First appointment

Getting started with Invisalign® aligners is a smooth process, aided by the latest simulation technology. We start with a mould of your teeth that we use to move your teeth virtually into the ideal position using special software. When this is finished, we share with you the treatment plan, and you will be able to see the outcome of your treatment. Patients love this aspect of Invisalign® as it allows them to see the finish line, you won't need to imagine the result - you’ll see it!

Second appointment

When your full set of aligners arrive at our practice, we schedule for you to come in to fit your first set. We will provide you will clear instruction on how to change your aligners at the prescribed interval and how to best take care of them.

During treatment

During your treatment, you may only need to come in for routine check-ups every 6-8 weeks.

After treatment

Once we've achieved your perfect straight smile, you will need to wear a retainer at night when you sleep to ensure that your teeth don't drift back.

Is Invisalign® for me?

Invisalign® is a sophisticated technology that today can treat most patients including those with:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • crowded teeth
  • Unevenly spaced teeth

During your initial consultation at TL Dental, we will check your teeth, gums and bite to see if you are suitable for orthodontic treatment.

I've already had braces; can I still have Invisalign®?

Yes, it is common for adults who had braces as teenagers to get Invisalign®. If you have not worn your retainer after treatment as a teenager, it is not uncommon for the teeth to slowly shift again and 'relapse'. Invisalign is an excellent choice, and we can achieve relatively quick results in relapse cases.

What is the cost of Invisalign®?

Treatment cost for Invisalign® starts from as little as $60 a week with some of the dental treatment finance options.
