The comfortable and discrete solution to straighten your teeth
Clear braces like Invisalign are a system of clear aligners that make small, gradual adjustments to the alignment of your teeth to correct crowding and misalignment without needing traditional orthodontic brackets and wires. For busy, image-conscious teens and adults, Invisalign and clear aligners are a fantastic way to achieve a straighter, healthier and more aesthetic smile. For that reason, because there are no wires or brackets, it’s easy to keep your teeth clean during treatment, further lowering your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

Who is a candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign and clear aligner systems utilise advanced technology which make them extremely successful in treating most smile concerns. Both adults and teens are suitable candidates for Invisalign and clear braces systems. In recent years, there has been a huge surge in the popularity of invisible braces for teens who are self-conscious about wearing braces. Invisalign and similar clear aligner systems means that friends, family and colleagues may not even realise or notice that you are in treatment.
Clear aligners are also a great option for those who have had traditional orthodontic treatment in the past but have experienced relapse. Clear braces can help to fine-tune your smile back to where it needs to be.
What does Invisalign and clear aligners cost?
The price of Invisalign and clear aligner treatment varies depending on the type and length of treatment requirement. For example, those who are correcting minor relapse after having previous orthodontic treatment may only need a shorter course of treatment which would cost less than full Invisalign or clear aligner treatment for those who have not had any orthodontic treatment before. As a guide, the price of Invisalign can range between $3,500 – $7,500. At The Grove Dental we offer a complimentary, no-obligation consultation for those considering Invisalign and clear aligner treatment so that we can assess your smile and give you an estimated cost for treatment.
So, how do I start treatment?
Before starting any orthodontic treatments at The Grove Dental Rouse Hill, Dr Britt will undertake a comprehensive orthodontic evaluation of your teeth, gums and bite alignment. After that, if you qualify for treatment, Dr Britt will discuss the estimated time frame and costs to provide a better insight as to what to expect and so that you can make a fully informed decision for treatment. We will take a detailed series of dental photographs and a digital scan of your smile to create a 3D treatment plan that will show you what your teeth will look like after treatment and inform you how many aligner trays will be required to achieve your smile goal.
