When you want to improve the alignment of your teeth, your mind probably goes to traditional metal braces. As common as these braces are, they do have disadvantages. Most notably, the braces are highly noticeable so they make many patients feel self-conscious. This is especially true for adults because braces are more commonplace for teens and pre-teens.
Today, though, there’s another option that is helping people of nearly all ages to get more even smiles without the look of braces: Invisalign.
Invisalign is one of the latest and greatest in teeth alignment technologies and it is a fantastic alternative to traditional metal braces. There is no danger of food being caught in the metal, it can be removed easily for regular brushing and flossing and is practically invisible.
Sydney Road Dental Care take advantage of Invisalign’s unique SmartForce Technology to create a series of custom-made removable aligners for you and only you.
SmartForce are attachments of small tooth-coloured blocks installed during fitting for your invisalign.
They are tiny and hardly noticeable
They allow for complex movements without braces
They help the aligners apply the correct amount of force needed in the right directions.
All you have to do is to wear these aligners, made of a virtually invisible plastic, over your teeth to gradually move them to the ideal position.
Our team uses state of the art technology to take 3D scans of your teeth, so there’s no need for messy and uncomfortable mouldings.
With those scans, we can prepare a customised treatment plan and consult with you about the costs and how long your treatment will take.
We can even show you a “preview” of your potential results using our SmileView simulation tool.

What can Invisalign correct?
Contrary to some misunderstandings Invisalign treatment is capable of treating a wide range of dental malocclusions or misalignments.
More and more of our patients are realising that they can likely get the results they want without the discomfort and unappealing aesthetics of metal braces.
Invisalign now includes an impressive list of successful treatments including but not limited to:
Generally straighter teeth
Result speak for themselves
It’s important to recognise that with Invisalign, as with any other type of braces, your results will depend largely on the care you receive. Our knowledgeable team has extensive experience as an Invisalign Platinum Provider as well as cutting-edge technology. All of this adds up to faster, more efficient treatment for you. Keep in mind that each person’s timeline will vary, but we can discuss your expected treatment process and timeframe in your consultation.
For Invisalign to be maximally effective, you need to wear the aligners for 22 hours per day. Pre-2020, this could be hard to maintain because people would go out to eat, requiring them to have their aligners out for longer. However, now that we’re all staying home more often, more people are finding those 22 hours easy to maintain, so they see this as the ideal time to start their treatment if they want the best results.
Sydney Road Dental Care prides itself on the use of the best available technology.
The iTero machine is a dedicated 3D scanning device that delivers next generation scanning technology, high definition colour imaging and comfort of use for both you and your dentist.
Not only can this machine take on the spot accurate 3D images for perfect fit and adjustment Invisalign treatments, it is also used throughout the practice to model accurate lab submissions and for use in our 3D crown milling process.
Visualise your treatment path during your first consultation with projected renders of your new straighter teeth.
While prices vary for each case, Invisalign generally mirrors the cost of traditional braces, and is based on the complexity, time and number of aligners required to achieve the result you may seek.
However at Sydney Road Dental Care your dentist will advise you of your options, we offer several methods of payment and payment plans.
