Crooked teeth are the misalignment of one or more teeth that can cause your bite to be off-balance. It causes potential wear and tear on adjoining teeth and gum lines. If not appropriately addressed, it can lead to chipped enamel and tooth decay, as food particles may remain in hard-to-reach areas between the gaps that develop from overlapping crooked teeth.
Invisalign is suitable for adults and teens as long as all their adult teeth have erupted. During the Invisalign consultation in Chatswood, we will assess the specific misalignment issues in your mouth and determine if the treatment is right for you.
You can achieve optimal results with Invisalign when your teeth and gums are healthy. In the Invisalign discussion in Chatswood, we will review your oral health to see whether you need other dental treatments before beginning the treatment.

Invisalign is a modern way of straightening your teeth without metal brackets. It uses a series of custom-made, clear aligners to gradually move your teeth into a straighter position. Each Invisalign tray is unique to the individual and crafted based on an accurate three-dimensional model of their mouth.
The removable aligners must be worn for at least 20 hours daily and taken out when eating or brushing your teeth. Every two weeks, the patient will move on to wearing their next set of aligners, allowing their smile to shift over time until it is properly aligned. With regular visits to the dentist every 4-10 weeks, this invisible aligner treatment is an easy way to get the smile you’ve always wanted!
Minor Invisalign treatments start at $4,500. The cost of full Invisalign treatments ranges from $6,000 to $9,000. However, the cost of treatment may vary depending on factors such as the complexity of the case and the length of treatment required.
Consult with a dental professional at TranscenDental Chatswood to determine the cost of Invisalign treatment according to your specific needs and discuss the associated costs in detail.
Invisalign is a popular brace treatment procedure. Depending on your level of cover, your health fund may cover it. We recommend that you check with your provider to see if they cover it and if you are eligible for reimbursement.
Otherwise, there are many different payment plans available that will help you spread the treatment cost over time. At TranscenDental Chatswood, our dental team can assist you in checking your health fund policy’s cover for Invisalign or finding an alternative payment method that suits your budget.
You can still play sports and musical instruments while undergoing Invisalign treatment. Like other removable orthodontic treatments, like retainers, playing with Invisalign is possible as long as you take a few precautions.
Your dentist will recommend wearing sports mouthguards during contact sports and putting your aligners back after practice. Playing wind instruments may be trickier – moisten the aligner with water first and then place it over your teeth. You’ll also need to check that your aligners’ position won’t affect your ability to play the instrument. With practice, you should be able to adjust to wearing your aligners while playing a musical instrument.
While wearing Invisalign, avoiding eating or drinking anything other than water while the aligners are in the mouth is essential. This includes foods and drinks that are sugary, acidic, or staining, as they can damage the aligners and affect treatment progress.
It’s recommended to remove the aligners before eating or drinking anything and to brush and floss teeth before putting them back in the mouth. This helps to maintain good oral hygiene and prevents food particles from getting stuck between the teeth and the aligners.
