What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an innovative technology that uses custom-made clear plastic aligners to shift the teeth to their correct position gently and accurately. It is clinically proven to be effective in treating mild to complex teeth straightening cases. The aligners are not only invisible but can be removed when required, to drink and eat what you want. And since no braces are involved, you spend less time getting adjustments and visiting the dentist.

At Mint Dental, we are committed to helping you get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted – without braces.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign offers an array of health benefits.

  1. Unlike the traditional braces, no wires or brackets are involved. In addition, they are smooth and comfortable as they don’t have protruding edges or bits.
  2. You don’t need special tools or techniques to maintain proper dental hygiene. Brushing and flossing can be carried out every day, just by removing the aligners at the time.
  3. The aligner is designed to be interchanged every two weeks, as teeth start moving, for a period of 6 to 18 months. At Mint Dental, we give a few sets of aligners at each visit, so that you are not required to visit us very often, as you would when traditional braces are involved.

Above all, aligning your teeth with clear braces reduces cavities, gum disease, and premature gum wear. With lnvisalign clear aligners, you keep living your life, the same way you always have, without anyone noticing that you are undergoing a teeth straightening procedure.

Invisalign FAQs

Take a look at some of our most frequently asked questions about Invisalign.

The customised aligners work by applying controlled forces to the teeth to place them in a better position. For best results, they must be worn continuously and only removed when eating or drinking. Specialised computer software and digital 3D technology is used, to give your teeth the best possible alignment. The first set of trays must be worn for two weeks for at least 20 hours a day.

Over time, your teeth will move to their final planned positions so as to achieve the best results. An average treatment consists of between 18 to 30 aligners. This however, varies between individuals based on the complexities of each case.

Yes. Teenagers today face greater challenges when it comes to confidence. Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible, which means teens can continue enjoying their life without restrictions.

Unlike metal braces, they can achieve a confident smile without ridicule or fear of embarrassment. The aligners are also removable, so teenagers can continue flossing and brushing normally. When instructions are followed appropriately, the clear aligners will be as effective as the traditional metal braces.

At Mint Dental, our clinician will provide the best customised treatment plan that suits every individual appropriately.

The cost of Invisalign varies based on the complexity of each individual case. As it can be appreciated, every individual has different teeth and jaw development stages throughout their life. Accordingly, teeth straightening treatments have to be planned and customised for each individual – so as to achieve the optimal desired results.

During the initial consultation, our dentist will perform a thorough dental exam, take records (such as photos and x-rays) and evaluate the patient’s oral health.

Thereafter, our dentist can then plan the teeth straightening treatment phases, evaluate the complexity of the case and the treatment time required.

At Mint Dental, the cost of Invisalign ranges between $3500 and $7500. Our clinic also offers an option of INTEREST FREE payment plans, so that you can pay off the cost of your treatment over time with no additional worries. Private health fund could also cover a part of this cost – this is based on an individual level of cover.

We offer the best lnvisalign treatment for both teens and adults. We invite you to contact our Mudgeeraba practice to set up the initial consultation. And if you have any questions or concerns, send us an email and we’ll respond promptly. The smile you’ve always wanted is now closer than you think.
