Invisalign Orthodontics

Invisalign Sydney CBD

We are excited to be able to offer you Invisalign orthodontic treatment to straighten teeth.

Knowing whether you should opt for Invisalign or conventional braces may be a difficult choice, especially when you’re unsure which procedure your set of teeth is better suited for. At Dentistry At The Cross, our team will help you find the best orthodontic method for you.

While Invisalign is a convenient and efficient tooth straightening process, it is not suitable for all sets of teeth. To be eligible for the Invisalign treatment, you must have a set of teeth that is not overly crowded or misaligned. Invisalign is perfect for dental issues that are not too complicated, whereas traditional braces utilise wires to handle more complex and severe dental concerns.

 

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a popular method of straightening teeth using clear treatment aligners. In most situations, it is an alternative to traditional braces, particularly in adults with a comparable treatment timeframe. The aligners are virtually invisible so most people at conversation distance won’t even know you are wearing them and they can be removed for eating and cleaning the teeth.


Invisalign technology uses computer-aided design (CAD) algorithms to fabricate the clear aligners that are changed every two weeks. Each new set moves the teeth precisely towards the ideal position.


There are a range of available options within the system so treatment can be customised to individual needs based on the amount of crowding and correction required. The Invisalign options available include:

  • Invisalign Express (7 pairs of aligners)

  • Invisalign Lite (14 pairs of aligners)

  • Invisalign Moderate (26 pairs of aligners)

  • Invisalign Full (Unlimited pairs of aligners)

We offer Invisalign to adults only however can discuss referral of children and teenagers to specialist orthodontists whom practice Invisalign as well as traditional orthodontic treatments. 

For adults, prior to treatment, a full assessment including radiographs and models of your teeth will be taken and analysed to determine treatment needs. Complex cases will be referred to a specialist orthodontist.

Specialist referral is always available if you desire, or require more specialised care. We are happy to guide you to the most appropriate people. We regularly work with our specialist referral network who can offer specialist orthodontic care for Invisalign, traditional fixed braces and lingual braces (braces bonded to the inside surfaces of the teeth).

Sydney Clear Aligners

Invisalign clear aligners are an effective and convenient alternative to traditional braces. Clear aligners can be divided into two distinct groups – all-day and night-time. The aligners you choose will depend on the severity and complexity of your dental issues and how long you are willing to spend completing the procedure. Pricing and the length of treatment are different for each type of clear aligner. The daytime aligners require 4-6 months to form a new smile and must be worn for 22 hours per day. Night-time aligners will take longer to create the desires results as the procedure will take an average of 10 months and will need 10 hours of continuous wear every night.

Attaining clear aligners is a simple process that begins with a comprehensive consultation session with one of our Potts Point dentist. Once completed and you have agreed to the treatment ahead, we will conduct a 3D impression of your teeth that will give us an image of your teeth and help us create the perfect aligners for your set. When your clear aligners are ready, you will be able to straighten your teeth at home easily and within just a few months. Talk to us today to start your clear aligners journey.

Invisalign Vs Braces

There are many advantages associated with choosing the Invisalign process over the traditional option of metal braces. These advantages include:

However, Dentistry At The Cross does not recommend Invisalign for every patient. Instead, if you are looking for a suitable treatment for overly complicated dental issues, we suggest opting for traditional metal braces as your orthodontic option. This is because metal braces utilise wires and brackets to push your teeth into the appropriate place and derive the best results. For more information on whether to choose Invisalign or braces, contact us today.

FAQs

The cost of Invisalign in Sydney depends on the treatment plan needed to get you the desired results. However, you can expect to spend about $7000 to $9000 for Invisalign. If you want to know the exact cost of Invisalign for your teeth, it is best to schedule an appointment with us. Our dentist will check for the condition of your teeth, provide an appropriate treatment plan and give you an upfront quote for the procedure.
Cleaning and caring for your Invisalign retainers are easy. You can rinse the aligners with lukewarm water daily. Also, you may brush them using a soft-bristled toothbrush. You may use toothpaste or soap water to brush the inside and outside of your aligners. Post brushing, run them through lukewarm water. If you see tartar build-up on your retainers, soak them in a denture cleaning solution to clean them thoroughly.
The time required by Invisalign to straighten your teeth depends on its complexity. For example, if your teeth are slightly crooked, you may expect the desired results within six months. However, if your teeth require plenty of alignment fixing, the treatment could take up to 24 months to get you the desired results. To know for how long you will have to wear Invisalign, book an appointment with our dentists.
Invisalign takes about six months to correct minor misalignment issues and about 12 to 18 months to align complicated teeth. On the other hand, metal braces take about 18 to 24 months to solve alignment issues with your teeth. Hence, Invisalign is considered to be a faster way to rectify the alignment issues of your teeth. However, it is essential to follow the instructions given by your dentist to achieve the desired result as soon as possible with Invisalign.
Orthodontic treatment includes dental procedures that correct alignment issues with the teeth using braces. Apart from improving the aesthetics of the teeth, these treatments help restore a patient’s bite and the function of the teeth. Orthodontic treatments are carried out by specialists in the field and can treat alignment and bite issues in children, teenagers, and adults. Orthodontic treatments involve the use of metal braces, ceramic braces, self-ligating braces or Invisalign.
There is no best age for getting orthodontic treatment done. People of almost all ages can get braces if they have alignment issues with their teeth. However, it is advisable to get a child between the age of 7 to 10 years to get assessed by an orthodontist, so the treatment can begin early if needed. As the head and mouth of children in this age group are growing, the treatment outcome is expected to be better.
Orthodontic treatments fix alignment issues of the teeth. One of the best orthodontic treatments is Invisalign that uses clear aligners to straighten the teeth. Invisalign requires no metal brackets, bands, or wires and saves patients the embarrassment of wearing traditional braces. Also, these clear aligners are known to provide the desired result faster than any other orthodontic treatment. Though Invisalign is an expensive orthodontic treatment, the convenience and effects make it the preferred choice of many in Sydney.
Orthodontists are dental specialists working to rectify tooth alignment and bite issues. They perform various procedures to give you a beautiful smile. You can visit an orthodontist to get facial growth checked in children, seek treatment for misaligned teeth, rectify bite issues, bring teeth straightening surgery, and more. Some common treatments carried out by orthodontists are:
  • Traditional braces
  • Invisalign
  • Retainers
  • Lingual braces
  • Orthodontic Elastics
The cost of orthodontic treatment depends on the procedure and plan for rectifying aesthetic issues with your teeth. For example, you can either go for traditional braces or Invisalign clear aligners if you want to straighten your misaligned teeth. The cost of the treatment will vary depending on the option you choose. Traditional metal braces are cheaper to fix in comparison to Invisalign.
