Invisalign® at East Perth Dental
The Invisalign System is a nearly invisible way to straighten your teeth and your smile without the use of bulky, traditional braces.
What Is Invisalign®
Invisalign treatment works through a series of clear, comfortable and removable aligners. Each aligner is slightly different, moving your teeth gradually into the desired position.
Invisalign entails a series of mouth moulds which dentists are more than accustomed to doing for similar procedures such as mouthguards and dentures. From here, the mould is sent to the lab so the retainers can be manufactured. So while orthodontists are obviously more qualified in the entire teeth straightening experience, many general dentists are able to provide you with Invisalign.
How long does Invisalign® take?
How long Invisalign takes varies greatly from person to person and situation to situation. On average you could expect your treatment plan to last about 28 weeks, however, it is best to contact your local dentist to get an exact timeframe.
