Invisalign™ & Orthodontics
Explore our range of corrective treatments
The team at Dentist of East Melbourne can help you to achieve the smile you will be proud to show off.
Invisalign™ and other orthodontic solutions improve the appearance and health of your smile. An incorrect ‘bite’ can predispose you to jaw pain, whilst crooked teeth can be difficult to clean (leading to tooth decay and gum disease). Consequently, orthodontic treatment is not only cosmetic – it can also help enhance the health of your jaws, teeth and gums.
Correct jaw position and alignment of teeth is also associated with an improved ability to breathe, which positively affects your general health and wellbeing.
Crafting smiles without removing teeth*
*subject to individual case assessment
Dentist of East Melbourne is trained in crafting smiles while, where possible, avoiding the removal of teeth. That’s because each tooth is a vital component of your smile and helps support your face – keeping it looking younger in later years.
There are many effective ways to straighten your teeth. What’s right for you depends on your individual case and the extent to which your teeth need adjusting. Our orthodontic team has the knowledge and experience to find a solution best suited to your needs.
How Invisalign™ can help you
An Invisalign™ treatment corrects your teeth’s alignment without the obvious appearance of braces. The method is popular and user-friendly; a subtle and effective way to improve your smile and optimise functionality.
Invisalign™ uses a series of custom-made, clear aligners that are changed fortnightly – or as your teeth move into their correct positions. These can be removed during eating, drinking and brushing. Invisalign™ transforms your teeth without brackets and wires, which means there is no compromise on aesthetics as your teeth gradually straighten.

Braces as an orthodontic solution
Fixed orthodontic appliances such as ‘braces’ provide another effective smile correction tool. Using brackets and wires, even the most crooked teeth can be guided into place, and bite problems such as cross bites, under bites and over bites can be corrected.
In these more complex cases, fixed appliances may be recommended over Invisalign™. Fortunately, the appearance of braces has improved enormously over the years, and clear braces are now available.
How orthodontics can help you
Mal-aligned teeth can lead to jaw problems and make you more vulnerable to gum disease. So ensuring the ideal bite for your teeth helps keep your teeth healthy, while creating a smile you’ll be proud of.
