Invisalign was created in 1999 and is an exciting, innovative method of straightening teeth, using breakthrough technologies that create beautiful smiles without bands, brackets or wires.
Using 3D imaging your treatment is planned and results will be seen even before you commence treatment. Invisalign is virtually invisible and provides patients with an aesthetic alternative to braces. Not all problems can be fixed with Invisalign and an appointment with Dr Whyte at any of our convenient locations in Brisbane, Thornlands, Biloela or Moranbah will answer your questions.
What is Invisalign treatment?
Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible custom made removable aligners (like very thin clear mouthguards) that slowly move your teeth. Invisalign straightens teeth in stages and approximately every fortnight the next series of aligner is started by you at home and worn at least 22 hours per day. Each visit with us we give you several new Invisalign aligners and monitor the treatment, sometimes doing additional procedures to allow treatment to run smoothly. We can manage Invisalign treatment from any location in Brisbane or Central Queensland – Red Hill, Thornlands, Coorparoo, Biloela and Moranbah. Usually 3 or 4 sets of Invisalign aligners are issued ensuring that appointment intervals can be spaced 6-8weeks apart. Invisalign aligners are comfortable to wear and are also removable allowing patients to eat, drink, brush and floss as usual.
Invisalign Treatment Time
Every patient is unique however treatment usually takes between 6-24 months, the average time frame is about 12months. You will see Dr Michael Whyte for Invisalign check ups and adjustments at our Brisbane locations – Red Hill, Coorparoo, Thornlands, and our Central Queensland locations – Moranbah or Biloela. At these appointments additional aligners are given to further your treatment. Treatment will work for most people, provided you wear your aligners 22 hours daily. Our experienced team can ensure that your invisalign treatment will be successful.
Costs can sometimes be less than braces but usually costs a little more. Please book a consultation for an opinion. All fees are explained upfront, and there are no hidden surprises. We offer Invisalign aligners as a practical and aesthetic solution for straightening teeth.
