Who Is a Good Candidate for Invisalign?
An excellent candidate for Invisalign is an individual who presents mild to moderate orthodontic concerns that align with the capabilities of clear aligner therapy.
These aligners are particularly suited for individuals with conditions such as mild to moderate crowding, small gaps between teeth, and certain types of mild to moderate bite irregularities like overbites, underbites, or crossbites.

Frequently Asked Questions
When it comes to Invisalign treatment in Brisbane, we understand that you have questions. We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help!
The duration of Invisalign treatment depends on individual case, typically spanning from 6 to 18 months. At Moorooka Dental Care, your first consultation involves an assessment of your teeth and a discussion regarding your treatment objectives, enabling us to approximate the required duration.
Throughout your treatment, you will be provided with a sequence of custom-crafted aligners that gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. Each set of aligners is worn for approximately two weeks before being replaced with the next set in the series.
We will monitor your progress and adjust your treatment plan as necessary to ensure that you achieve the best possible results.
In general, most people experience some level of discomfort or pressure during the initial days of wearing a new set of Invisalign aligners. This discomfort is usually mild and can be described as a feeling of pressure or tightness as the aligners start to move your teeth. However, this discomfort typically subsides within a few days as your mouth adjusts to the new aligners.
Compared to traditional metal braces, many individuals find Invisalign to be more comfortable overall. The absence of metal brackets and wires means that there is less potential for irritation to the inside of the mouth. Additionally, Invisalign aligners are smooth and custom-made to fit your teeth, reducing the likelihood of friction-related discomfort.
If you experience any discomfort while wearing Invisalign aligners, it’s recommended to communicate with your orthodontist. They can provide guidance on managing the discomfort and ensure that the treatment is progressing as expected.
For effective results, Invisalign aligners should be worn consistently for 20 to 22 hours per day. You should only remove them for eating, drinking (except for water), brushing, and flossing.
This level of consistent wear ensures that the aligners are actively exerting the necessary pressure on your teeth to facilitate the desired tooth movements. Failing to adhere to the recommended wear time might prolong your treatment or compromise the effectiveness of the aligners.
It’s important to maintain this routine throughout the entire treatment duration, changing to a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks as directed by your orthodontist.
Cleaning your Invisalign aligners is crucial to maintain their clarity and hygiene. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to clean them effectively:
1. Rinse: Whenever you remove your aligners, rinse them with lukewarm water. This helps to prevent dried saliva and plaque from building up on the aligners.
2. Brush and Floss: Before reinserting your aligners after meals, make sure to brush your teeth and floss to remove any food particles or debris that could become trapped between your teeth and the aligners.
3. Use Clear Antibacterial Soap: Gently brush the aligners with a soft toothbrush and a clear, fragrance-free antibacterial soap. Avoid coloured or scented soaps as they could stain or leave a residue on the aligners.
4. Invisalign Cleaning Crystals: You can also use Invisalign cleaning crystals or a denture cleaner. Dissolve the cleaning crystals in water as per the instructions and soak your aligners in the solution. This helps to remove any stubborn residue and keeps the aligners fresh.
5. Avoid Hot Water: While cleaning, avoid using hot water as it could warp the aligners and compromise their fit.
6. Avoid Toothpaste: Avoid using toothpaste to clean your aligners, as it can be abrasive and scratch the aligner surface, making them more visible.
7. Carry a Case: Always carry the Invisalign case with you to store your aligners when you’re not wearing them. This prevents them from being exposed to contaminants or getting lost.
8. Keep Hydrated: Drink plenty of water throughout the day to help prevent dry mouth and reduce the risk of bacterial growth.
Regular cleaning will ensure that your aligners remain nearly invisible and maintain their effectiveness throughout your treatment. If you’re uncertain about any cleaning methods or products, consult your orthodontist for recommendations.
What our patients say
“I had the most amazing experience. I was nervous about my dental treatment but when I got here they explained it to me and I was put at ease. The work done was amazing and I won't hesitate to return to this clinic. Dr Zaheer and his team were very professional and caring.
I also found his front desk staff Fatimatu and Frances to be very friendly and caring. I would highly recommend this clinic.”
“I had my best dental practice at Moorooka Dental Care! I was very afraid to go to the dentist before I came to this practice. I had a really good experience at this clinic.
Dr Linh was wonderful. She explained the whole treatment and answered all my questions. I also met Frances the receptionist. She was very friendly and made me feel welcome. I had an amazing experience and highly recommend Moorooka Dental Care.”
“The whole team are such a lovely bunch of people! Dr Tina and Casey (I think it's Casey.. correct me if I'm wrong) work so well together and had me laughing before and after my dental work. Everyone is really kind here, from owner to reception staff. I know I'm in good hands when I visit 🙂”
“I had the pleasure of having my dental work done at Moorooka dental care. It has been an amazing experience, Fatimatu at reception was extremely helpful. I was treated by Dr Furqan today and I found him very professional and gentle. I've also seen Dr Reza and Dr Zaheer and found them to be extremely good. I will highly recommend this practice.”
“Fantastic staff. I am a truly anxious patient, and the receptionist, Frances, who took my first contact call, I felt safe. Dr Reza Sunny was so patient with me, allowing me to do tapping when I was overwhelmed, never losing focus, totally understanding. Incredibly kind. Incredibly good dentist. I had cleaning, filling, and removal of a broken molar. Even though I may still get anxious I feel safe returning when needed.”
“This is my first time ever to have a positive comment about a dentist.
I was astonished about the successful outcome of my dental procedure. Thank you Casey and Dr Reza, what a professional and dedicated team. I mentioned to my partner about it, and we went back to the clinic and she made an appointment for herself on the spot. I do not hesitate to recommend to any one the services of Moorooka Dental Care. Thank you all for your friendly attention, starting from the reception all way to the manager. Looking forwards to see you again.”
“Can't thank the team at Moorooka dental care enough for an amazing friendly experience! I have now seen both Dr Reza Sunny for general cosmetics work including fillings to teeth whitening, clean up/check ups. Very good at explaining and being upfront with procedures process and Dr Zaheer who removed both my bottom wisdoms last week did an absolute fantastic job from start to finish. They even went the extra mile to call up and check up on me a few days later to see how my recovery was going. 10/10 for service and pricing. Thanks”
“Moorooka Dental Care is one of the best dental practices I've been to. The team is friendly, the office is modern and clean. I have had the pleasure to be cared by Dr. Zaheer and Dr. Reza. Both are excellent professionals. They took the time to explain the procedures and the subsequent cares. I even got a follow up call from the practice manager, Ahmed, the next day. I highly recommend them!”
