Invisalign

Woman putting in invisalignAt our Redfern dental office, we believe everyone deserves the benefits of a healthy, happy smile. We offer a wide range of teeth straightening solutions to suit the whole family, one of those being Invisalign.

Invisalign is a relatively new teeth straightening technology that uses digital precision combined with completely clear braces. Invisalign is the most comfortable way to alter the alignment of your teeth and achieve your perfect smile.

The Invisalign Process

Your dentist will begin by creating a digital 3D image of your teeth by taking x-rays, impressions and photographs. Using this image, they will map out a unique treatment plan, predict the precise movements of your teeth over time, and calculate how to achieve the exact results you want. We will then give you a series of custom-made aligners, which are changed every few weeks, to guide your teeth gradually into position.

How Long Does It Take?

Most of our Invisalign patients complete their case anywhere between 9-24 months. During your consultation, we can let you know if you qualify for Invisalign and approximately how long it will take to give you the results that you’re looking for.


Once new aligners have been worn for a short time, they become unnoticeable and very comfortable to wear. There is none of the painful tightening that comes with traditional braces and no sharp metal brackets or wires to irritate your mouth. Some patients feel tightness on their teeth when they change to a new set of aligners, this feeling typically goes away fairly quick and is considered much more comfortable than other orthodontic treatments.

The aligners used for the Invisalign treatment can be removed to allow you to continue with your usual oral care routine. This also means you can remove your aligner for short periods whenever you need to, so you can be sure to look your best at an important event or celebration.

Invisalign aligners are completely clear braces so many patients report that their friends and family don’t even notice they’re having treatment. The goal of Invisalign is to give you the confidence boost of a perfect smile, so it makes sense to keep looking good throughout the treatment rather than suffering with unsightly traditional braces.

With traditional adult braces, patients often find it challenging to properly clean their teeth around the brackets and wires in their mouth. These difficulties can lead to plaque build-up and eventually tooth decay. So, while your teeth may be straighter, they could actually be damaged in the long run. With Invisalign, the tray can be removed to allow for brushing and flossing after every meal, keeping your teeth in great health.

How Often Do I Need to See You?

It’s necessary to schedule regular appointments with your dentist. These visits typically occur every 6-8 weeks. The reason why you will need to come in is to ensure that your Invisalign treatment is progressing as planned. We will check your progress and tweak anything along the way as necessary.

How Much Does It Cost?

When you come in for a consultation, we will provide you with cost of your treatment based on your needs. Factors that will determine the overall cost include treatment time, the complexity of your case and treatment goals. We offer payment plans to spread the cost of treatment in to easy repayments for your convenience.
