Invisalign provider in Perth
Access Dental Care in Perth offer our patients Invisalign and Invisalign Teen
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that can straighten your smile discreetly and without braces.
This form of orthodontic treatment is designed to discreetly straighten your teeth using a series of clear, removable aligners. The aligners will incrementally straighten your teeth as you swap them each week or fortnight,
Before you start your treatment we will show you what the results of Invisalign will be using a virtual treatment plan. By seeing this you can see straight away what to expect.
Getting Invisalign is a four-step process:
- Initial consultation
When you visit Access Dental Care in Perth for your initial consultation, on our dentists will discuss and assess your oral health. If Invisalign is right for you—and there are orthodontic cases where Invisalign is unsuitable—a treatment plan will be created to match you and your lifestyle.
Your Access Dental Care dentist will then take an impression of your teeth and send them off to the Invisalign labs.
- Treatment plan
The treatment plan is a digitalised copy of your teeth we can use to see and review your teeth before, during and after treatment.
- Custom-fitted aligners
Once you and your Access Dental Care dentist have agreed on the digital treatment plan, you will receive custom-made aligners. These will need to be work for around two weeks before you switch to the next set of aligners.
- Treatment process
One of the major benefits of Invisalign is the aligners are removable. You can eat your favourite foods without worrying about getting foodstuffs stuck in your braces. It also means you can brush and floss your teeth regularly to maintain optimal oral hygiene.
Treatment time varies: generally speaking, Invisalign treatment takes around 18-26 aligners: which is roughly 9 to 18 months. Your treatment time will depend on the condition of your teeth and your compliance wearing the aligners.
If you’re a teenager looking to straighten your teeth without the hassle of metal braces, Access Dental Care in Perth offers Invisalign for teenagers. The process is the same as it is for adults with a few exceptions:
- Compliance indicators: these fade from blue to clear to help you and your dentist gauge wear-time.
- Special features designed for canines, second premolars as well as second and third molar teeth.
Everyone’s teeth are different, and so some teenagers will be suitable for adult Invisalign. The stage of your dental development will determine if Invisalign or Invisalign Teen is better for you.
