At Precise Dental Surgery we are committed to helping our patients straighten their teeth with Invisalign, the virtually invisible alternative to traditional braces.
Invisalign is a series of clear, removable aligners used by many dental professionals worldwide. The Invisalign treatment involves changing your aligners every two weeks. Each new aligner will apply pressure gradually moving your teeth into the desired position.
We have partnered with and accept the following health care providers.
Invisalign is virtually invisible:
It is possible that no one will even know you are wearing Invisalign, as the aligner trays are clear ad fit seamlessly over your teeth.
Invisalign is removable:
Invisalign aligners are removable meaning you can eat and drink normal foods. Another benefit is that your oral hygiene habits such as proper brushing and flossing can be maintained.
Invisalign is comfortable:
With Invisalign, there is no need for potentially annoying metal brackets or wires. This can result in less mouth irritation and oral sores that can be experienced with traditional braces.
Invisalign treatment is transparent:
Using 3D modelling technology you can see your future smile before you start treatment.
Once our dental professionals have identified that Invisalign would be a suitable treatment for your particular orthodontic concerns we can begin planning your treatment process. We will discuss with you the particular extent of your dental concerns and the intended amount of treatment time you will require in order to correct these concerns.
Once we have discussed this with you we can take a mould of your teeth in order to create your aligner trays. In most instances you will be required to change your Invisalign trays around every two weeks, however this will depend on your specific dental condition. Each set of trays can gently guide your teeth into the desired position in anywhere between 9 – 24 months.
The Invisalign trays will need to be worn day and night, however they can be removed in order to eat, floss and brush your teeth. As they are custom made to seamlessly fit over your teeth Invisalign aligners should not cause any discomfort whilst you are wearing them. We generally recommend you visit us every 6 to 8 weeks for adjustments and for us to check on your progress.
Invisalign can be a desirable choice for those who wish to straighten their smile inconspicuously. It can also be a suitable option for those working in professional environments, or for our more mature patients who are self-conscious about receiving orthodontic treatment.

What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are small thin porcelain shells that are placed directly on top of your teeth. They can eliminate gaps between teeth, tooth discolouration and broken / chipped teeth.
What are Dental Crowns?
Like veneers, dental crowns are made of porcelain and act as a cap or crown for your teeth. They are often combined with dental bridges to replace missing teeth.
When should my child start seeing the dentist?
We recommend your child starts visiting the dentist from an early age, preferably when they are around 7 years old.
What is the difference between conventional braces and Invisalign?
There are many differences between Invisalign and conventional braces. For example, with Invisalign you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing as Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. Invisalign aligners are also removable meaning you can brush and floss as you would normally – this is something you cannot do with conventional braces. Despite this, conventional braces can be a more suitable option for those with more subnational orthodontic concerns.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are widely considered the modern solution to missing teeth and dentures. Replace missing teeth with dental implants which act and feel like normal teeth. They consist of a titanium screw-like post which is implanted into the jawbone. The implant will then bond with your jawbone to provide stimulation and support for a dental crown or bridge.
What is a root canal?
The root canal is the space within the root of a tooth. Root canal treatment is recommended for patients with infected tooth pulps. The best indication of infection is severe dental pain or sensitivity.
How can you restore my smile?
Advancements in dental technology allow us to completely restore a patient’s smile. There are a variety of treatments that may be suggested. We recommend you visit our practice and schedule in a dental consultation. This allows us to assess your dental health and develop a plan of action to ensure you have healthy teeth for life.
My wisdom teeth are causing pain. Should I have them removed?
Because often modern jaws are not big enough to accommodate these extra teeth, in the majority of cases we do recommend they are removed. We recommend you come into our practice for a thorough examination to determine the path we take in ensuring your dental health.
I am afraid of the dentist. Do you offer virtually pain free dentistry?
For anxious patients, we provide a number of pain management options including happy gas and sleep dentistry to ensure that these patients can receive the dental work they need. To learn more please visit our sleep dentist page.
How often should I visit the dentist for a dental check-up?
We recommend you visit our practice every 6 months for your dental check-up and fluoride treatment. This way minors dental issues can be addressed before they potentially become major problems.
