There is a solution to having straighter teeth without having to wear metal braces. Known as invisible orthodontics, this type of treatment offers you the choice of wearing a clear and sometimes removable appliance while straightening and aligning your teeth.
This is often a favourable option for adults who have professional careers and don’t feel comfortable wearing unsightly ‘train track’ braces for months on end. The technology behind invisible orthodontics is highly advanced and often gives patients a much shorter treatment time, depending on their individual cases.
Benefits of this type of treatment include having teeth straightened in a generally shortened period of time, straighter teeth and alignment of your top and bottom jaws. You can also enjoy the flexibility of your braces being hidden from an untrained eye, making you feel less self-conscious when socialising or speaking in public. With removable devices you can also take them out to eat or for special occasions, so they fit around your lifestyle.
It is important to remember that straighter teeth are healthier teeth. When your bite is properly aligned and your teeth are straightened, there are less gaps and areas for food to get trapped and plaque to build up on the teeth, causing decay. In that sense, invisible orthodontics is a long-term investment in your oral health.
Invisalign® is a semi-invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom made, nearly undetectable, removable aligners. Whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted since previously wearing braces, you’ll have a new reason to smile.
Upon initial examination, together we decide if Invisalign is the right choice for you.
Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign® carefully translates your orthodontist’s instructions into a series of precisely custom-made aligners. You wear each aligner in sequence for two weeks at a time and gradually, millimetre by millimetre you will achieve the intended result – straighter teeth.
Invisalign® – show off your smile, not your braces Nothing is as important as a genuine and heartfelt smile. Whether in your professional life or when you are out socialising, an attractive smile can make you feel happier and more relaxed – as well as making the right impression!
If you’ve ever thought about how improving your smile could help you to feel more confident, Invisalign® might be for you.
