Affordable Invisalign Teeth Straightening for Teens and Adults

by Helen Blunt orthodontist

If you’re looking to finally get the smile you’ve long dreamt of, you’ll be relieved to discover that when straightening your teeth, braces for adults and teens aren’t what they used to be, and the reasons for avoiding treatment can be relegated to the history books. 

 

Many people avoid getting their teeth straightened because of fears about the aesthetically unappealing look of traditional dental braces for adults and for teens. This concern only heightens as they get older and expectations regarding both professional and social appearances weigh more heavily.

 

Fortunately, the days of wire and elastic bands are no longer a reality for many individuals, thanks to advances in dental technology in recent years. 

 

One of the biggest things to happen in the world of Australian orthodontics in recent times has been the arrival of Invisalign, the teeth-straightening procedure that presents a clear alternative to braces.

 

The process

Invisalign clear braces use a series of transparent, removable and comfortable aligners to move your teeth into the correct position. This means you can still smile confidently during treatment. Using 3D computer imaging technology, Invisalign creates individual personalised aligners using medical grade plastic. 

 

Invisalign clear aligners are initially worn for 2 weeks, day and night, only being removed for eating, drinking and brushing. After this first two-week period, you move onto your next pair of aligners that you wear for another 2 weeks. This process continues until you have completed all aligners in the series and your teeth have straightened into their final position, as prescribed by your Specialist Orthodontist.

 

Invisalign braces are available from leading Specialist Orthodontists in Sydney, for both adults and teens.

 

Invisalign Teen 

For teens, in addition to its more aesthetically pleasing appearance, Invisalign has a number of benefits over traditional braces. Better oral hygiene and reduced enamel damage, less discomfort, fewer dietary restrictions and less orthodontic appointments are all made possible by Invisalign Teen treatment.

 

The price of ‘invisible’ teeth straightening

You might expect the Invisalign aligners cost to be higher than that of traditional metal braces, but the best orthodontists will not charge you more for this procedure. Rather than being affected by the type of aligner chosen, cost of treatment will be dependent on a number of factors, including how severely the teeth are misaligned and how long it will take to make the necessary changes to straighten the teeth. Good orthodontist practices will offer payment plans to ensure that the treatment is available to everyone, whatever their budget. Depending on the reason for the treatment, it may also be worth researching any potential cover provided by your health insurer for dental procedures. 

 

Understandably, the process of teeth straightening has traditionally been an area of concern for both teenagers and adults. With the advent of Invisalign, worries about the ‘unsightly’ appearance of braces have been laid to rest, making a confident smile more easily achievable for all.
