If you are looking for a transparent, flexible, alternative to braces to straighten your teeth, Invisalign may be an option for you. Invisalign treatment is suitable for adults and teens depending on your situation.

Invisalign orthodontic aligners are clear plastic trays that can help correct your crowded or misaligned teeth without the need for uncomfortable and unsightly metal braces and brackets. The teeth are moved gradually, with a new set of clear trays every fortnight, until the desired level of movement is achieved. The plastic trays are comfortable to use and can be worn daily (including overnight). The clear trays are all but invisible in your mouth, so most people won’t even realise you are getting orthodontic treatment when they see you.

Invisalign vs Braces

  • Invisalign aligners are practically invisible. No one may even notice that you’re wearing these virtually invisible ‘braces’, making Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others.
  • Invisalign aligners are removable. Unlike fixed metal braces, you have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment by simply removing the aligners. And you can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and to maintain good oral hygiene.
  • Invisalign aligners are comfortable. Unlike traditional fixed braces, there are no metal brackets or wires that could cause irritation to your mouth. This also means that in most cases less time is spent in your dental provider’s practice for adjustments.

Not all orthodontic issues can be fixed with Invisalign. To find out if Invisalign is suitable for your needs, contact McLennan Street Dental for an assessment.

COVID 19 Update

Good News! On the advice of the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPCC) we are happy to say that we are back to Level 1 restrictions effective immediately.

What this means is that the full range of dental treatments is now available, including your regular dental check up and cleans.

All measures that have been implemented for COVID 19, including taking thorough medical and travel histories, social distancing within the surgery and increased infection control protocols will continue.

It is great news that we appear to be over the worst of this pandemic and we hope that you and your family have remained safe and healthy.  We thank you for your patience and understanding over the last couple of months, and look forward to catching up with you all soon.
