Embrace Orthodontists are your most experienced Invisalign providers in Canberra. We give more new smiles to more patients using Invisalign than any other practice. Because we are specialist orthodontists, health funds give a higher rebate to those patients having Invisalign with Embrace rather than with a dentist.
Traditional braces apply force to the teeth using metal brackets and wires, but Invisalign treatment uses a series of clear aligners that are almost invisible to move teeth into the desired position. These make Invisalign a great alternative for people who don’t want their orthodontic treatment to affect their appearance.
Invisalign aligners are manufactured for each individual patient and are based on a scan taken at the beginning of your treatment, which allows the orthodontist to map out your specific treatment plan. You will need to change your aligners every 2 weeks to ensure your teeth keep moving into position. You will only visit our practice approximately every 8 weeks for up to 10 minutes each visit. So, its easy to fit Invisalign into your schedule.
The length of treatment time depends on the complexity of your case, but we have treated simple cases of minor tooth alignment in 6 to 9 months. After assessing your teeth at your initial consultation and discussing with you the results you would like to achieve, we can let you know how long your treatment will take.
Invisalign Teen – the teenagers’ version of this effective treatment, Invisalign Teen is a popular choice among our younger patients. The virtually invisible aligners means teens don’t have to feel self-conscious about having orthodontic treatment and because they’re removable, teens can take them out for sports games, music practice or special events, like proms.
Invisalign i7 - ideal for people who would like a minor change to the front section of their teeth. Treatment time is just 3 months and is a good alternative for people who may have had orthodontic treatment as a child and found their teeth have moved slightly with age.
If your case is too complex for Invisalign, there are other 'invisible' options available such as lingual braces which sit on the back surface of your teeth. We are the only practice in the A.C.T that can combine our SureSmile Technology with lingual braces. This means we can achieve results up to 30% faster than any other lingual system.
