The Benefits of Straight Teeth

Straight teeth are not only more attractive but also healthier, contributing to better overall dental hygiene and health. Traditional orthodontic treatments often rely on metal brackets and wires to straighten teeth, which can be uncomfortable and visually unappealing. In contrast, the Invisalign® system offers a modern solution for achieving straight, beautiful smiles without the need for braces.

The Invisalign® System: A Modern Solution

Utilising a series of clear plastic aligners that are custom-designed to fit snugly over your teeth, these aligners are virtually invisible, making them a discreet option for those who may feel self-conscious about wearing traditional braces. One of the key advantages of this system is the level of comfort and flexibility it provides. Unlike metal braces, the smooth plastic aligners do not irritate your gums or cheeks.

Convenience and Flexibility

Moreover, the aligners are removable, allowing you to maintain your regular oral hygiene routine without any obstacles. You can take them out while eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing, ensuring that your teeth and gums remain healthy throughout the treatment process. This convenience is a significant benefit for busy individuals who do not want their orthodontic treatment to interfere with their daily lives.

Gradual and Gentle Adjustment

The process of straightening your teeth with Invisalign® involves wearing each set of aligners for about two weeks before moving on to the next set. Each aligner is slightly different, gradually moving your teeth into the desired position over time. This incremental adjustment helps minimize discomfort and provides a more gentle approach to orthodontics.

Effective and Aesthetically Pleasing

Invisalign® is particularly suited for people who seek an effective and aesthetically pleasing way to correct misaligned teeth. Whether you have mild to moderate dental issues such as gaps, crowding, or bite problems, this innovative system can help you achieve a perfect smile. Additionally, the predictability of the treatment outcome, thanks to advanced 3D imaging technology, allows you to see the projected results before starting the treatment.

A Revolutionary Approach to Orthodontics

Overall, Invisalign® offers a revolutionary approach to orthodontics, providing a blend of effectiveness, convenience, and aesthetics. It is an ideal choice for individuals who desire straighter teeth without the discomfort and appearance of traditional metal braces. With Invisalign®, you can achieve the healthy, attractive smile you’ve always wanted with minimal disruption to your daily life.

Every patient is different, so we design a unique treatment path for everyone. We starts with a dental examination by our experienced Invisalign dentist. As well as a physical examination to assess the extent of the problem, we talk to you about what you hope to get from the treatment. Then together we review and agree on your Invisalign treatment plan that is best for you and only begin treatment when you are happy to proceed. Invisalign will then make a series of custom made aligners that will only fit you. Each aligner is slightly different, moving your teeth gradually into the desired position. You wear each aligner for two weeks, before moving on to the next in the series.

Treatment length varies according to the individual, but it is typically complete within nine to fifteen months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30 aligners. On average treatment times are around half as long as traditional fixed braces. Each aligner should be worn for 2 weeks at a time, before being replaced with the next aligner in the series. During the treatment our Invisalign® certified dentist will see you for a progress review and adjustment every four to six weeks and you will then receive your new aligners. Each aligner will move your teeth little by little, week by week, until they reach the desired position. Finally all that remains is for you to show off your beautiful new smile!

Additionally, we can also help if you are concerned about your child’s misaligned teeth. Their teeth can be straightened and aligned so that they will reach adulthood with great looking and properly functioning teeth!
