An insight into Invisalign

Invisalign has emerged as one of the most revolutionary treatment options in orthodontics, allowing patients access to teeth straightening without visible braces.

If you’re investigating your options when it comes to the perfect smile, here’s an insight into Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the clear alternative to braces that can help achieve a straighter smile. Invisalign uses a series of clear, custom-made aligners to gradually move teeth into their desired position.

How does the treatment work?

Every one to two weeks you’ll be given a new set of aligners which gradually position the teeth ideally. The number of aligners required, and hence the length of treatment depends on the severity of the orthodontic problem and varies person to person.

Will it work for me?

Invisalign is a viable alternative to braces for most people requiring orthodontic treatment.
Dr Shimanto will carefully assess whether Invisalign is the right option for you. He will do this by examining your mouth and teeth, looking at your dental history and taking X-Rays to determine the best treatment plan for you. 


The cost of Invisalign varies depending on the level of complexity of treatment required, but is comparable to conventional braces. Factors affecting cost include the extent of orthodontic work your teeth require and the number of Invisalign aligners necessary to complete the treatment.

Norwest Orthodontics will provide you with a comprehensive treatment plan and quote. We can structure payment plans to suit your budget which makes treatment affordable for everyone.

Many private health funds will rebate a portion of your treatment cost; however, you should check your policy and contact your insurer to clarify.

Why would I consider Invisalign?

Dr Shimanto Purkayastha is an Invisalign accredited specialist orthodontist with extensive experience in clear aligner treatment.

This revolutionary orthodontic treatment option consists of clear removable aligners that you change periodically.

Each aligner is individually designed for your teeth and your teeth only. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final prescribed position.

Some of the benefits of Invisalign are:

  • An invisible treatment process
  • Improved comfort
  • Removable aligners
  • Ease of hygiene
  • Affordable costs

For most people the real benefit of Invisalign comes down to two factors; the discrete treatment option it provides, and the fact that aligners are removable.
