Invisalign – the no braces alternative

Invisalign – one of the biggest orthodontic brands in the world was invented by technologist Zia Chisti, as a patient who hated his braces. Invisalign is now synonymous with straightening teeth with plastic templates, and we make our own ‘North Sydney’ invisalign treatment version right here. How is this possible ? Invisalign patents expired in 2017 opening the market to other aligner manufacturers so thanks to clever software and 3d printing, in house aligners are manufactured in many of the most advanced orthodontic practices

Is Invisalign for everyone?

Invisalign is a useful product in the hands of a trained orthodontist, and patients generally are keen to embrace it. Experience shows that plastic aligners work best for patients with mild irregularity and good motivation. Even though invisalign is heavily marketed by Aligner manufacturers it is the dentist who is responsible for the treatment outcome using aligner products. We have successfully treated many patients who except for invisalign would never have considered orthodontic treatment. Its not for every case – but then neither is braces nor any other device!
