Invisalign Clear Braces
Everyone appreciates a straight, perfect smile.
If you find yourself covering your mouth with your hand or smiling cautiously because misaligned teeth and conventional braces do not appeal to you, we have a solution that many of our adult and professional patients appreciate – invisible braces.
Straight Teeth Promote a Healthy Smile
Crooked teeth affect more than your self-confidence.
Overcrowded, overlapping teeth are difficult to clean and may not come together correctly, causing jaw problems, sensitive teeth and uneven wear. In case you needed one more reason to choose orthodontic treatment in our Melville, WA dental surgery, proper alignment means improved oral health.
Invisalign Invisible Braces
Because many of our patients would prefer to avoid bracket-and-wire orthodontics, Dr Lidia and Dr Anni proudly offer Invisalign clear aligners for a more discreet approach to orthodontic treatment.
As with all orthodontic treatment, success requires precise planning to ensure proper occlusion (bite), jaw function and aesthetics.
We begin by performing a comprehensive evaluation of teeth and periodontal health. Digital x-rays and moulds of teeth will provide our team with vital information to organise a treatment plan. He will then discuss an approximate timeline and cost of treatment, so you can decide if Invisalign clear braces are right for you.
In some cases, we may apply tiny tooth-coloured buttons, called attachments, to the teeth to assist with movement. These will be remove at the end of your treatment.

Invisalign Treatment Guidelines
If you decide to proceed with Invisalign treatment, your compliance plays a vital role in a timely and ideal result. Guidelines vary from patient to patient, but these are general guidelines to expect.
- Wear your aligners for most of the day (22 hours or more).
- Remove them when you drink hot liquids, eat and clean your teeth.
- Wear each set of aligners for approximately two weeks.
- Keep your aligners out of hot vehicles and away from pets.
- If you lose or damage an aligner, contact the clinic.
- After initial treatment, wearing a retainer will keep teeth from drifting back out of alignment.
