Braces VS. Invisalign Melbourne

09/07/2020, by Minoo - 0 Comment

A smile is a powerful thing. It is a remarkable mechanism to display your feelings to the world and to the people you love. However, so many people feel self-conscious about their smiles due to misaligned or discoloured teeth. And this causes them to hide those beautiful smiles behind closed lips and nervous hands. If there is one thing the world needs right now, it is more joy, more happiness and more smiles. With dental braces and Invisalign, you can gain the confidence to proudly display your beautiful smile.

What is the difference between Braces Melbourne and Invisalign?

Both Dental Braces and Invisalign are orthodontic treatments to straighten and correct misalignments in your teeth and jaw. However, these two options vary considerably and are suited to different dental requirements.

  • Traditional orthodontic braces Melbourne

work via the combination of two separate systems. Initially, a series of individual brackets are placed with the utmost care on each tooth. Secondly, an interlocking wire is fed through each bracket. Over time, tension is applied at intervals to correct both the teeth’s position and bite.

Braces come in a variety of forms, including metal braces, clear ceramic braces and invisible braces; which are fitted behind the teeth.

  • Invisalign Melbourne 

is the clear alternative to braces. The treatment involves the use of 3D computer imaging technology to create a series of clear aligners; which are changed every two weeks, to gradually move the teeth into a beautiful, healthy smile.

Our Invisalign no braces treatment is ideal for patients who want a more incognito teeth-straightening solution. Also, They are often suitable for people with more minor teeth misalignments, with the duration of the treatment lasting around six months to two years.

What are brace costs?

The costs of our orthodontic services vary depending on the specific needs of the patient. Therefore, we recommend a consultation with our dentists to determine the braces or Invisalign cost of treatment. However, to provide a rough ballpark, our average braces Melbourne cost ranges from $6000 to $9000.
