Invisalign Benefits, Cost And Myths

In this article, we’ll uncover the benefits, costs and unveil some of the common myths about Invisalign so you can make an informed decision about your smile. 

Starting Invisalign treatment is a big commitment…

…both emotionally and financially. 

So if you’ve thought about straightening your teeth, it’s important to understand what you’re getting into. 

Invisalign is a treatment for simple to complex common teeth-straightening issues. It uses a practically invisible plastic aligner that is custom-made for your smile.

You can take your first step towards a straighter and more beautiful smile with a consultation with an Invisalign-trained dentist. Your dentist will then create a 3D scan of your smile to create a digital treatment plan for your teeth’s realignment. Your very own customised set of aligners shall be worn over a period of time, changing them every week or two, gradually moving your teeth into position resulting in your better smile. 

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

  1. Invisible – What you’ll be wearing is a plastic aligner that is sheer that is almost unnoticeable!
  2. Removable – Unlike traditional braces that trap food debris, aligners allow you to maintain a healthier dental hygiene and also enjoy different activities because they are completely removable.
  3. Comfortable – Because there are no metal wires, aligners are more comfortable to wear and won’t cause cuts in your mouth. They resemble mouthguards that are completely snug and won’t cause irritations.

How much does Invisalign cost?

There are various factors affecting the amount for having your Invisalign treatment, mainly:

  • What your dental case requires, which could be categorised into lite to comprehensive
  • The number of aligners you’ll need
  • Average price in your location

In Sydney, the standard costs of Invisalign range anywhere between $4,500 and $9,700, depending on the treatment plan. 

Invisalign offers more benefits than traditional braces, yet it is often more affordable than braces.

Invisalign does not treat severe cases. This is wrong, Invisalign can fix complex cases which involve tooth extractions, surgery, bite correction and crowding. Invisalign is customised to accommodate your needed dental solutions.

Invisalign takes longer. Usually, it takes around 10 to 18 months to achieve your desired smile as compared to the two years that it takes for traditional braces to take complete effect. Factors that may increase the longevity of the treatment include how carefully you follow your dentist’s instructions like the 22-hour recommended daily wear.
