The Clear Alternative to Braces


 What is the Invisalign system? 

The Invisalign system is a virtually invisible and hygienic orthodontic treatment that uses an innovative approach to effectively straighten teeth. With SmartForce Technology, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made removable aligners created for you and only you. These aligners are made of a virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth to gradually move them to the ideal position. Most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them, allowing you to keep your lifestyle during treatment. 

How does the Invisalign treatment work?

Once you and your Invisalign-trained doctor agree that Invisalign treatment is right for you, your doctor will take photos, X-rays, and a scan of your teeth usnig our cutting-edge 3shape Trios Intraoral 3D scanner. These records will be used to make a 3D treatment plan, referred to as the ClinCheck treatment plan, which will be used to design the custom-made Invisalign aligners. This 3D treatment plan will also show your likely final tooth position at the end of the treatment. Your custom-made Invisalign aligners will be produced and then shipped to Leichhardt Dental, who will then give you a series of aligners, typically 3 to 4 sets at a time. You will replace each one approximately every 2 weeks until the final position of your teeth is reached. 

What are the advantages of Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign aligners are an effective way to straighten teeth. There are also several other specific advantages to Invisalign treatment:

  • Virtually invisible: Invisalign aligners are the clear alternative to braces, giving you a virtually invisible treatment option that lets you keep your confidence, beautiful smile, and lifestyle even when you are in treatment.

  • More Comfortable: Invisalign aligners are comfortable, with no metal brackets to irritate your gums or the inside of your mouth.

  • Maintain oral hygiene: Invisalign aligners are removable, so it’s easier to clean your teeth and maintain your oral health during treatment.

  • Potentially fewer doctor visits: Invisalign treatment typically requires fewer doctor visits than some types of braces.

  • Visualise the progressive movement: Invisalign Treatment allows you to visualise each stage of the treatment process, from the beginning to the end. 
    Also, some patients may require additional steps like refinement, to complete the treatment.


What if Invisalign is not suitable for my case or if I prefer to have fixed braces?

Although clear aligners can be used to treat most orthodontic cases there are some instances where either clear aligners wont achieve the desired result or that the results can be more accurately achieved with fixed braces. In these situations Dr Luca can straighten your teeth using Insignia, a set of braces which are completely custom made for each of your teeth and digitally designed and printed using 3D software. There may also be situations where Dr Luca will recommend you see a specialist orthodontist to carry out your orthodontic treatment.
