1. How long does it take to straighten teeth using Invisalign?
It’s a highly-personalized treatment so it is difficult to say without meeting the patient. Overall treatment times typically take between 6 and 18 months but can be as little as 3 months.
2. Is it painful?
Dental experts agree that the invisible aligners are likely to cause a patient less pain than traditional metal braces. There may be slight discomfort as you begin treatment or after you swap to the next set in your treatment, but this is usually only very temporary.
3. Are the results worth the wait?
These aligners are highly effective with comparable results to metal braces, but without the embarrassment that many patients experience. Plus, we ensure our patients finish their course of treatment completely satisfied with their new smile.
4. What happens after I finish my Invisalign treatment?
As for all braces, retainers will need to be worn (usually overnight) to maintain your brand new perfect smile.
5. What is the cost of the treatment?
We welcome inquiries, so please call us on 04 3987075 if you would like to discuss up-to-date costs or our interest-free payment plan.
6. How often will I need to visit the dental clinic during treatment?
You will only need to attend once every 4 to 6 weeks to check the treatment is progressing well.
7. Will the braces affect my speech?
It’s possible that you may notice a slight change initially but your tongue soon adapts. Any impairment will disappear within a day or two.
9. Should I get Invisalign?
Before deciding to get braces, it is important to undergo a complimentary consultation to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the treatment.
