Invisalign Advantages


What advantages does Invisalign® offer over traditional braces and veneers?

Traditional dental braces, Invisalign® aligning trays, and dental veneers are three different ways to perfect the alignment of the teeth for our Perth area patients. There are many different considerations to make when deciding which treatment will be best, and each of these options works better in certain situations.

Invisalign® differs from traditional braces in that the aligning trays are fully removable. This means that more discipline and commitment is required from the patient. This is not usually a problem since the trays are comfortable and nearly invisible. Almost identical results can be obtained by using either treatment.

Invisalign® is preferable to veneers in many cases because unlike veneers, Invisalign® actually straightens the teeth. Veneers are thin covers that the dentist permanently affixes to the teeth. Teeth must be etched beforehand, meaning that to remove dental veneers, an alternative covering must be constructed. In addition to being somewhat expensive, veneers can break and often last for less than 20 years.  Therefore Invisalign is the most suitable option for our Woodvale, Perth area patients. 


Invisalign, on average, cuts treatment times for orthodontic treatment. But it is worth emphasising that one of the most important aspects of the Invisalign experience is that the aligners are designed to provide as little disruption as possible to the everyday life of the Perth area patients wearing them. Because Invisalign works so effectively, therefore, it is not only faster – it also means that you spend considerably less time in the dentist’s chair during the course of the treatment.


Conventional braces can cause disruption to your everyday life because they can be so uncomfortable. Conventional braces are fixed, so it can make it difficult to chew and food can easily get trapped around your braces, brackets, elastics and wires. Also, your Perth dentist has to tighten the braces on a regular basis, to ensure that they are still moving the teeth effectively. This can be uncomfortable – not to mention the inconvenience of so much time spent in the dentist's chair.

Invisalign aligners are not fixed, they are removable. Invisalign functions as removeable, clear braces for our Perth area patients. Therefore, you can take them out to eat and to clean which makes life a whole lot easier. The plastic aligners do not require the use of brackets, wires and elastics, so the less complex mechanism is much easier to look after and more comfortable to wear. Finally, you don't need your aligners adjusting. They come pre-prepared and designed specifically for you - so when you need to exert new pressure on your teeth, you simply upgrade to the next aligner in your own, personalised set.
