Move over, braces: there’s a new teeth-straightening method on the block. Invisalign is the subtle, removable alternative to abrasive braces and their many brackets and wires. If you’re warming to this idea already, then our Buderim dental clinic is here to help. Here’s everything you need to know about Ivisalign in Buderim.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign are transparent, plastic teeth moulds customised to your smile. They are perhaps best known by the name of their biggest stockist, Invisalign. Invisalign—or clear aligners treatment—is the newest way to straighten a crooked smile. They are subtle, non-invasive, and removable.
Did you just say ‘removable’?
Yes! The great benefit of Invisalign is that you can remove them when you need to eat. Whilst braces are notorious for trapping unwanted chunks of food, Invisalign and your food never have to meet. So long as you wear your Invisalign 22 hours per day, they’ll do the job they’re supposed to.
What does Invisalign treat?
In a nutshell, Invisalign straightens crooked teeth. They can also correct other dental alignment issues, such as gap-toothedness, crowded teeth, overbites, crossbites, and underbites.
Are there any other perks to Invisalign?
Apart from the obvious aesthetic perk of being barely visible, Invisalign is not abrasive and are generally pain-free. As a general rule, their treatment duration is six months to two years. Braces are not only abrasive and potentially painful, but their duration of one to three years is longer on average than Invisalign.
Can anyone get Invisalign?
Not everyone is eligible for clear aligner treatment. Book an appointment at our Buderim dental clinic to see if Invisalign could be right for you. Our phone number is (07) 5370 8865 (or you can book online).
What happens at the consultation?
Let’s say that you’ve decided at your consultation that you would like to pursue Invisalign treatment. What happens is that we will take photos and impressions of your teeth at our Buderim dental clinic before sending them to the Invisalign lab. From here, Invisalign will use our photos and impressions to create a 3D projection of your teeth’s alignment, which will become the template for creating your Invisalign.
What does Invisalign cost in Buderim?
Unfortunately, there’s no straightforward answer pertaining to Invisalign costs in Buderim—or anywhere, for that matter. The price of Invisalign is treated on a case-by-case basis, and each case is unique to the patient in question. It can depend on case complexity, the extent of teeth crowding, and your total treatment time. It can even vary between Australian states.
For a ballpark figure, treatment plans spanning 18–24 months can cost anywhere between $6500–$9500 on average. At our Buderim dental clinic, Invisalign will cost a minimum of $3,000. This is due to our lower estimated treatment duration of six months to two years.
