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.
