What is Invisalign?

The Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable plastic trays, (aligners) that fit over your teeth. These aligners are custom-made to fit only your teeth and must be changed approximately every six to eight weeks to slowly move your teeth into their desired position. They work best when worn 22 – 23 hours a day!

How does it work?

To begin your Invisalign journey you must start with a consultation appointment so your dentist can access your eligibility to get Invisalign. Here at Avoca Beach Dental, we offer Invisalign that you can book by contacting us here!

After your initial consultation, if you and your dentist decide Invisalign is right for you, the next step is a follow up appointment so we can get a full scan of the inside of your mouth, to make sure you get the perfect fit.

Here we can also create a mock-up of your final smile using our Digital Smile Design system to make sure you happy to proceed with the process.

After this appointment, our highly qualified dentist will order your custom Invisalign aligners. Once they arrive, you come back into make sure they fit perfectly and your Invisalign journey begins!

Based on your dentist’s advice, you need to come back in for follow up appointments every 6 – 8 weeks to make sure everything is going well and to get new aligners to further shape your smile.
