Orthodontic treatment has come a long way in recent years. With the introduction of clear aligners, such as Invisalign, patients have more options to straighten their teeth and achieve a beautiful, healthy smile. Clear aligners are an alternative to traditional metal braces and are made of a custom-molded, transparent plastic material. They fit over the teeth and gently shift them into the desired position over time.

At Hawthorn Orthodontics in Melbourne, we offer Invisalign clear aligner treatment to our patients, along with several other clear aligner brands to choose from. Our team, led by Dr Theresia Sudjalim, is committed to helping you achieve your dream smile and so we understand that many patients prefer clear aligners over traditional braces because of their comfort, convenience and discretion.

Invisalign history

Invisalign is the most well-known brand of clear aligners and has been used by millions of people worldwide. Invisalign aligners are custom-made for each patient and are virtually invisible when worn. They are removable, which means you can take them out when eating or cleaning your teeth.

Invisalign Alternatives

In addition to Invisalign, we also offer other clear aligner treatments such as Spark Aligners and Angel Aligners. Each type of clear aligner has its own unique benefits, and Dr Sudjalim will recommend the best option for you based on your individual needs.

How many Invisalign trays will I need?

Clear aligner treatment typically involves using 20-30 sets of clear aligners over the course of several months. Each set of aligners is worn for approximately one to two weeks before being replaced with the next set. During this time, your teeth will gradually move into the desired position.

At Hawthorn Orthodontics, we are a Diamond Invisalign Provider, having created hundreds of happy Invisalign smiles for our patients. Our team is highly experienced in clear aligner treatment and is dedicated to providing you with the best possible care. At Hawthorn Orthodontics your smile is custom created, step by step, by our Specialist Orthodontists.

Invisalign means less visits to our orthodontic clinic

One of the benefits of clear aligner treatment is that you don’t need to visit the orthodontist as frequently as you would with traditional braces. We use the Invisalign home monitoring software to track your progress remotely, reducing the number of in-person visits required.
