Invisalign aligners are currently the world’s most advanced orthodontic treatment solution - a perfect virtual solution made to align or realign your teeth and fix gaps without the need for metal braces.
The aligners are a clear alternative to metal braces used for straightening your teeth. The difference between Invisalign and traditional braces is that Invisalign uses unnoticeable, virtually clear aligners to straighten teeth while braces use brackets and wires.
Before your aligners are developed, our Invisalign Melbourne specialists in Elsternwick, and Armadale and its surrounding suburbs of Malvern, Prahran, South Yarra and Toorak, uses powerful technology and years of expertise to design the desired shape of your teeth and provide you with a customised digital plan.
With your Invisalign aligners customised to the shape of your teeth, there is no need to worry about the aligners falling out while being active in your favourite activities, or when you speak or sleep.

Length of Invisalign Treatment
The complete treatment process of aligning your teeth with Invisalign depends on the condition of your teeth and the end result you would like to achieve.
Everyone’s situation is different; meaning that each person will require a different degree of movement with their teeth. With that in mind, each patient will receive a customised plan indicating this degree of movement.
Despite the efficiency of the treatment, it is therefore impossible to provide a direct answer as to how long it will take to straighten your teeth with Invisalign. However, success stories do reveal that the treatment time of the clear aligners can be as short as 3 to 6 months, compared to 1 to 3 years with metal braces, as prescribed by your orthodontist.
Taking Care of your Invisalign Aligners
During the treatment process, it is important to wear your clear aligners as much as possible to achieve maximum results faster - a minimum of 20 to 22 hours per day. However, we do not recommend eating with your clear aligners attached to your teeth.
It is suggested to only remove your clear aligners from your mouth when eating, drinking, and brushing or flossing your teeth - generally after each meal to avoid bad breath and growing cavities. This also means that Invisalign holds the benefit of not disrupting your lifestyle!
In addition to taking care of your clear aligners, it is important to also keep it fresh and clean. Ensure to rinse your aligners after removing them, brush the aligners gently with your toothbrush and use the Invisalign cleaning system to keep your aligners clear and maintain oral hygiene.
Living with Invisalign Clear Aligners
Respective to metal braces, adults and teens undergoing the treatment may experience a slight discomfort within the first few days of replacing the clear aligners with a new set. Of course, this is a good sign indicating that the Invisalign is doing its job, as the teeth continue to move toward the desired position.
Invisalign clear aligners offer a vast array of benefits over conventional orthodontic braces:
Invisalign is virtually invisible
The clear aligners fit your lifestyle by letting you smile without having to shy your teeth away from the physical appearance of metal braces.
The aligners can be removed
The aligners can be removed, unlike braces which are fixed to the teeth with a special glue. Simply remove the aligners to wine and dine as you wish.
Cleaner oral hygiene
Clean your teeth with ease! With the clear aligners being removable, teeth can be brushed and flossed more efficiently and effectively without worrying about hard to reach places and build ups of plaque or cavities caused by metal brackets.
Less painful than having metal braces
Slight discomfort or extra pressure in the teeth is only felt within the first few days of fitting in a new set of Invisalign. Thereafter, teeth movement throughout the treatment is gradual and thus, no pain should be experienced.
Transparency in the treatment length
The treatment provides much more transparency in how long it would take to straighten your teeth with Invisalign; providing a more accurate estimation of the Invisalign treatment length.
Less orthodontic visits
Having braces requires monthly visits to the orthodontist for wire readjustments. With Invisalign clear aligners, you are only required to schedule check-ups on your progress approximately every 2 months and do not have to stress about emergency visits to replace broken wires or brackets.
Save money with Invisalign clear aligners
Fewer check-ups mean you save more money on consultations.
