Clear aligners may be the answer to straightening crooked teeth.
Teeth straightening with a clear plastic aligner, such as Invisalign, is an ‘invisible’ option when orthodontic treatment is needed to correct crooked teeth and other dental problems.

It is a preferred option because the aligners don’t change your appearance significantly or restrict day-to-day life while you undergo orthodontic treatment to refresh your smile.

The benefits of this form of orthodontic treatment include:

  • The aligners are thin and clear so people around you may not even notice that you’re wearing the appliance that sits snugly over your teeth.
  • They are comfortable to wear and are an effective teeth-straightening treatment, so you can enjoy the benefits of a straight smile.
  • The aligners are removable, which allows you to eat, brush and floss as you normally would

Often referred to as ‘invisible braces’, the Invisalign treatment involves using a series of aligners (similar to mouthguards),which are replaced every seven to ten days with a new, slightly different set to move your teeth into alignment.

Each sequential aligner is custom made for your individual set of teeth and bite to move your crooked teeth into a straighter position. You will continue with the treatment until your teeth are in their final position, which will be determined by your orthodontist, Dr Nino Gullotta.

More than 4 million people have used Invisalign to correct crooked teeth and bite issues.

While Invisalign can help to correct a range of dental problems, the aligners also work to improve your overall appearance while the treatment takes place. The end result will be a refreshed smile and a new-found confidence.

Frequently Ask Questions

Invisalign is an almost invisible way to straighten teeth without wires or brackets. Invisalign uses a series of custom-made, clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth. Each aligner moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about 7 days, then replaced by the next aligner in the series until the final tooth positions are achieved.

The results achieved with Invisalign are dependant on compliance by the patient and the skill and expertise of the treating doctor. In the majority of cases, an experienced doctor can achieve excellent results with Invisalign that are comparable to those achieved with braces.

You will need to change aligners every 7 days on average. It is common for each new aligner to feel tight and tender for the first 2 to 3 days.

The length of treatment is dependent on the severity of the problem, the treatment goals, the expertise of the treating doctor and patient compliance. Simple cases could be as little as 3 months. Complex cases could be over 24 month but the average treatment period is 9 to 15 months.

Orthodontics is the specialty of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosing, preventing and treating problems in the alignment of the teeth and jaws. Orthodontic treatment involves using braces, clear aligners plates and other corrective devices to move teeth and jaws into normal alignment. It may involve changing the position of the teeth or modifying the way the jaw grows.

An orthodontist is a dentist who has undertaken an additional two or three years of full-time study and clinical training at university (usually a Masters degree) so they can specialise in orthodontics. This extra study is on top of the five years spent training as a general dentist. Orthodontists are the most qualified to diagnose, prevent and treat problems you may have in the alignment of your teeth and jaws.

No, a referral is not necessary to see a specialist orthodontist like Dr Gullotta. You should, however, have a general dental check-up before you start any orthodontic treatment. This is because there may be some dental problems eg dental decay or gum disease that may need to be addressed before orthodontic treatment can begin.
