Many adults are understandably hesitant to have traditional braces in order to straighten their teeth. That’s why there is such a tremendous buzz about Invisalign® treatment for adults since it’s effectively like having invisible braces. After all, who wouldn’t want to straighten their teeth without drawing unwanted attention to themselves?
What makes Invisalign treatment so special?
This innovative orthodontic treatment relies on proven orthodontic methodologies to move teeth into their ideal arrangement. Gentle pressure applied by a series of aligners coaxes your smile into what it was always meant to be: beautiful and healthy with comfortable function.
The difference is the fact that Invisalign treatment doesn’t use metal brackets and wires than irritate your mouth, detract from your image and self-esteem, and hinder eating.
The aligners are removable, so you can easily brush and floss your teeth to keep them clean. The aligners are easy to clean, too – just rinse them off. You can eat what you want and never worry about food getting snagged in a bracket or wire.
Here’s how the process happens
From start to finish, the process to achieve a great smile with Invisalign treatment is relatively simple.
The team at Wilkinson Orthodontics will need to assess and then scan your teeth in order to develop the appropriate treatment plan. Once the scan is processed this is sent away to Invisalign to custom make your aligners.
This plan will detail approximately how long your treatment will take, how many sets of Invisalign aligners you’ll need, and how many times you’ll need to visit the orthodontist.
Don’t worry, for your convenience we have two practice locations on the Gold Coast.
After your orthodontic assessment
After your consultation and assessment, you’ll have a complete outline of each phase of your treatment.
Next, you’ll be seen by the orthodontic team to fit small attachments to some of your teeth and be issued with a set of upper and lower clear aligners that will apply steady pressure to gradually push your teeth into alignment.

Each set of aligners will move your teeth to a specific point, you’ll be instructed to switch to a new set of aligners at regular intervals until the desired outcome is reached.
