Straightening your teeth is not only beneficial for their appearance, it is also important for encouraging a correct bite position, helping to avoid unnecessary wear and tear.
At Northmead Dental we offer several orthodontic treatment options including conventional fixed bracket braces such as Smilefast, as well as Invisalign’s ‘invisible braces’ and the extremely quick Inman Aligner. You can talk to your dentist about which one will best suit your lifestyle and specific dental needs.
Invisalign is a clear aligner system that works to re-align your teeth using state-of-the-art custom made clear aligners. As their name suggests, the best part of this type of treatment is that the aligners are virtually invisible. In addition to being comfortable to wear, the aligners are also removable, meaning that you can still eat your favourite foods without worrying about conventional brackets.
How does Invisalign work?
Custom-made aligners are constructed from a durable, clear plastic and fit snugly over the contours of your teeth to reposition them over time. They are designed using advanced 3D modelling to ensure a precise fit, and the best possible results. Patients will wear each set of Invsialign aligners for approximately two weeks before they acquire a new set to continue the realignment process.
How many sets of aligners you will require will depend on your teeth – after careful assessment your dentist will be able to advise you of a rough estimate of how long the treatment will take. You will usually only need to visit your dentist once every two months, making Invisalign ideal for people with busy lifestyles.
As the Invisalign aligners are removable, this makes it easier for you to maintain your oral hygiene with thorough brushing and flossing. Thanks to Invisalign, just because you are undergoing an orthodontic treatment doesn’t mean you have to stop eating your favourite foods or feel self-conscious with less-than-aesthetic conventional braces.
