Invisalign is one of the most common orthodontic devices used to straighten teeth, especially for adults. Compared to other aligners, It provides many advantages and produces more effective results. If you are looking for Invisalign treatment in Port Melbourne or South Melbourne, our qualified and experienced dentist can help.
Instead of using traditional methods like metal braces, Invisalign involves the use of retainers that are almost invisible and can be removed when you are eating or sleeping. They are an ideal orthodontic treatment for children, teenagers and adults and will provide stunning results without all the hassle of braces.
As a leading provider of Invisalign in Port Melbourne and South Melbourne, Bay Street Dental Group offers qualified teeth straightening services using the device.
Invisalign can benefit a wide range of people looking to straighten their teeth. Some of the people who may benefit from Invisalign include:
However, it is important to note that only some are good candidates for Invisalign. Some factors that may affect your eligibility for Invisalign include the severity of your orthodontic problem, age, and oral health.
You can start your Invisalign treatment by visiting and discussing your goals with our Invisalign-trained dentist of Bay Street Dental Group. The dentist will analyse your requirements and teeth condition and confirm with you whether Invisalign can provide the desired results.
We then take x-rays, images, and impressions of your teeth to prepare Invisalign models. Once we found that you can get desired results through Invisalign, we will start designing a treatment course for you that includes the teeth movements during the course.
We will design a number of clear aligners that you will have to wear one after the other; you have to wear each aligner for two weeks and change for the next fortnight. In every 1-2 months, we will evaluate the improvement of your teeth and ensure that everything is going as planned. We will regularly supply new Invisalign aligners, and most patients wear between 18 to 30 aligners during the treatment period.
If you have a cavity, contact the Dentist Port Melbourne team at (03) 9646 2577. Our dentist will examine your mouth and take X-rays to see the cavity and offer treatment.
This means approaching every patient and case with personalised care. Every smile is different and Invisalign needs to be customised for your mouth and your requirements.
Your Invisalign dentist will use the latest technologies to scan and create moulds of your mouth in order for your retainers to be made – and ensure they are a perfect fit. When you get Invisalign in Port Melbourne and South Melbourne at our clinic, you will get retainers that have been made just for you.
These retainers will also be created using state of the art techniques so when it comes time to change them over, they will move your teeth into the perfect position for your mouth.
