Invisalign is helping millions of patients worldwide to get the straight teeth that they have always wanted.
At South Yarra Orthodontics we believe that Invisalign is arguably the most important orthodontic discovery of the last 20 years and has helped people all over the world to improve the quality of their smile. This is not to say that orthodontists and dentists haven’t been using removable appliances, because they have and with some efficacy, too. But Invisalign has taken it a step further and with the application of the Align company’s 3D software and being able to customise these clear aligners en masse, we can treat a whole host of patients each with their own unique orthodontic requirements.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners that are fully customised and designed to suit your unique needs with the aim of straightening your teeth over time and giving you the smile that you have always dreamed of. With the help of 3D technology, we can map the course of your treatment from beginning to end and move your teeth incrementally until they are where they need to be. You will be given a new aligner to wear every two weeks before it is replaced by your next set. Orthodontic treatment has come a very long way in recent times and Invisalign is at the forefront of treating patients effectively, discreetly and without the need for metal braces.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign comes with a range of benefits for those who choose it and compared with other orthodontic treatments it has some very unique aspects for you to consider. Invisalign gets its name from the fact that they are just about invisible to the naked eye when worn and they are able to slot in seamlessly with your lifestyle. As a fully removable orthodontic treatment, Invisalign also gives you the flexibility to be able to drink and eat whatever you like, whenever you like. This also means that you can brush and floss your teeth the way you normally would and so you can keep your breath minty fresh and your teeth sparkling white.

The very first step in your journey towards a beautiful healthy smile is to come and see us so that we can formulate your own unique treatment plan using our state-of-the-art 3D scanning technology. Then, once we have determined a comprehensive treatment plan, we need to figure out how many aligners we will need to straighten your teeth. Every patients’ needs and indeed their smile is totally unique and therefore it’s difficult to say exactly how long it will take to complete your treatment. Generally, though, it can be anywhere between 9-24 months.
