At our practice, we’re proud to help patients achieve the smile of their dreams each and every day. We understand that choosing Invisalign can be a big decision, and we want to help you make sure you’re making the correct choice for yourself.

If you’re considering Invisalign, take a look at the five most frequently asked questions we hear often.

1. How long does a treatment take?

Each patient has a unique smile, so the course of treatment will depend on how much your teeth need to move. A typical course of treatment can range between 12-14 months, though a broader range can be six months – 24 months. We’ll be able to give you a better idea of your timeframe when you visit us for a consultation.

2. What are aligners made of?

Invisalign aligners are made of a non-toxic, durable plastic that is medical grade. They are smooth and nearly invisible, which means no one will be able to tell you’re wearing them—unless you let them know!

3. Does treatment hurt?

Most patients find the course of their care to be rather comfortable and not painful. A common feeling when switching trays for the first few days may include “pressure”, though it will subside.

4. Is there a minimum age requirement?

Typically, patients are age 14 or over. The most important consideration for Invisalign is that the second molars have fully erupted.

5. What is the cost of Invisalign in Mandurah?

We aim to make treatment as simple and straightforward as possible for all. During your consultation, we’ll be able to give you an accurate price quote after determining how many trays you’ll need to achieve your smile goals. Because each patient is unique, it’s difficult to provide a price before we see you.
