Clear Aligners in Port Melbourne

If your teeth are crowded, unevenly spaced or crooked, clear aligners may be the best solution for you.

Invisalign® and ClearCorrect aligners are an invisible alternative to conventional braces. that require each patient to wear a series of clear aligners, which are replaced about every 2 weeks.

These clear aligners will gradually guide your teeth into a straighter position, giving you the smile you’ve been dreaming about.

Advantages include:

  • Virtually unnoticeable
  • Removable
  • Shorter treatment times
  • Easier to maintain 
  • More comfortable
  • Maintaining oral hygiene is easier
  • Custom-made to fit comfortably and to suit your dental needs

Why Choose Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners are one of the most popular choices for patients considering orthodontic treatment. Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners are virtually invisible, allowing you to maintain your natural appearance throughout the treatment process and get the smile you’ve always dreamt of.

The smooth and comfortable design of clear aligners minimises potential irritation and soreness often associated with metal brackets and wires in traditional braces. The convenience of removable aligners also ensures you can continue to enjoy your favourite foods and maintain optimal oral hygiene practices with ease. Additionally, clear aligners often require fewer in-person appointments, making them an ideal choice if you have a busy lifestyle.

Here are some of the other advantages of clear aligners:

  • Aligners are made of smooth BPA-free plastic. This reduces irritation and discomfort that often arises with wires and brackets.
  • Keeping your aligners clean is simple. You can rinse them with water or by using recommended denture cleaners.
  • Clear aligners can effectively treat various orthodontic issues including crowded teeth, gaps, underbites, overbites and crossbites.
  • No wires or brackets that can cause irritation to your gums and cheeks.
  • Each set of aligners is custom-made for your individual teeth according to your personalised plan which enhances the effectiveness of your treatment.

Types of Clear Aligners

Invisalign in Port Melbourne

Invisalign is a modern teeth-straightening solution that uses a series of virtually invisible, removable aligners to shift your teeth into their desired positions gradually. This innovative approach provides a convenient and comfortable way to achieve a beautifully aligned smile without the use of traditional braces. It’s effective for treating issues like crowding, spacing, overbites, underbites, and more.

Clear Correct Aligners in Port Melbourne

ClearCorrect is a teeth-straightening method similar to Invisalign, utilising clear, removable aligners to gradually enhance your smile’s alignment. Both of these systems offer a comfortable and quick solution to achieving a straighter smile.

Our Clear Aligner Process 

  1. Initial consultation and examination: Our experienced and highly trained dentists will assess your mouth to determine your eligibility for clear aligners and discuss your smile goals. 
  2. Digital impressions: We will take digital impressions or moulds of your smile to create customised aligners. 
  3. Wearing your clear aligners: Once your custom-made aligners are fabricated, you must wear them for about 22 hours daily. You may remove them when eating or cleaning your teeth. As your smile changes gradually, you’ll have to switch to a new set of aligners. 
  4. Maintaining your smile: Treatment may take anywhere between 3 to 24 months. Once treatment is completed, we’ll give you a customised retainer to wear every night.
