There is no one size fits all answer for the cost of Invisalign. As each patient’s circumstances are different, the cost will be too. Cost is dependant on the severity of the situation and a patient could potentially need over 30+ aligners, which can increase the cost.

The best way to know if you’re a candidate is to visit us at Best Smile Orthodontist for a comprehensive consultation.

You should be increasing your oral hygiene routine when undergoing orthodontic treatment. Dr Manku will recommend brushing and flossing after every meal. Brushing and flossing with orthodontics is especially important when you have braces. This is because food can get caught in the braces and cause cavities and plaque build-up.

After Dr Manku has put your brand new braces on, your next appointment will be every 4 to 6 weeks. This can differ from patient to patient and from one treatment method to another.

Dr Manku will set a personalised treatment plan for you to follow and will advise you every step of your treatment.

Generally, it’s recommended to avoid hard, sticky, sugary or crunchy foods. These can include popcorn, lollies and ice. Sticky foods can stick to your braces and promote cavities and bacteria build up. Hard foods like carrots can knock brackets off teeth or bend the wires. This can be detrimental to your orthodontic treatment and start to move your teeth the wrong way.

Dr Manku and his team can give you a detailed list of foods to avoid when you get your braces on for the first time.
