Invisalign

Hide your braces…not your smile.

Invisalign straightens teeth without the need to wear braces. It can be used for almost anyone, including teens, wanting an aesthetic and more comfortable alternative to braces.

Using a custom-made series of clear plastic “aligners”, Invisalign allows you to improve your smile without anyone knowing you’re in treatment. Each invisible custom aligner is created for you and only you. It’s easy to see why Invisalign is one of the most popular treatments for our patients. Without anyone knowing you’ll be smiling like you never have before.

The aligners can be taken out on special occasions, to eat meals and to brush and floss. Each visit, multiple aligners are issued so that appointment intervals are usually 6-8 weeks. Patients from out-of-town or interstate can benefit from Invisalign treatment because it allows longer appointment intervals if necessary with fewer emergencies than braces. We currently have patients who schedule appointments every 3 months in line with their trips to Brisbane.

While initially designed for adults, Invisalign has now developed two new products.

Invisalign Teen, specifically suited to teenagers who do not yet have their complete set of adult teeth.

And

Invisalign i7 (a 3 month treatment idea for people who would like a minor change in the front (most visible) section of their smile. A good alternative for people who may have had orthodontic treatment as a child and have found that the front section of teeth have moved slightly with age.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear aligners that are almost invisible. A great alternative for people who do not want their orthodontic treatment to affect their appearance.
Why choose Invisalign?
  1. More aesthetic (instead of brackets and wires, clear aligners are used); AND
  2. More hygienic (can be removed when eating, brushing and flossing); AND
  3. More comfortable (less irruption to the oral structures); AND
  4. More convenient (less time required between trips to the orthodontist).
How does Invisalign work?
The clear aligners are manufactured for the individual patient according to Dr NICK’s prescription and are based on the digital scan taken at the beginning of treatment. The aligners are changed every 10-14 days and the teeth gently move to their desired position with the changing of each aligner.
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
Invisalign i7 usually takes 3 months which is ideal for people who would like a minor change in the front (most visible section of their teeth).

Invisalign Lite usually takes 6 months and this is usually for less complicated cases.

Invisalign Full and Invisalign Teen are usually from 14-20 months and this is used to complete bite correction.

How often will I need to see Dr Nick?
Only every 6-8 weeks depending on your stage of treatment.
