What are Invisalign braces?

Invisalign in Corio, Geelong is an incredibly popular treatment that you could consider taking up if you wish you had straighter teeth. Our dentists have extensive knowledge and experience in getting amazing results using Invisalign.  In fact, our dentists have been treating both adults and teengers with invisible braces since 2013.

As a family run dental clinic we pride ourselves in offering the best quality dental care for our patients, and Invisalign is just one of our available treatments.

Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to gently move the teeth into a more aesthetically pleasing and correct position. The aligners are virtually undetectable, being see-through, and include no metal.

Each set of aligners (or ‘trays’) is custom made for a patient to ensure the best level of outcome and make sure that this treatment is as comfortable as possible.

As a patient, the series of trays you’ll be given gradually shift your teeth into place. Each tray is made slightly straighter, so when worn your teeth, in turn, become more aligned and straighter.

Your Invisalign aligners will then be specially made for you.  When you pick up your first set of aligners your dentist will ensure that they fit correctly to guarantee comfort throughout the course of treatment.  Your dentist will instruct you on how long you should wear your retainers and how to maintain them.

You will then be expected to keep up with regular dental appointments to check that your smile is making good progress.  These check-ups are typically required every six to eight weeks.
