The clear path to straight teeth in Gympie
What is Invisalign® treatment?
Invisalign® treatment is unique in that it straightens teeth without requiring a patient to wear braces. Yes, you read right – no braces!
Instead, Invisalign® treatment uses a series of clear, removable plastic aligners that look like thin sports mouthguards to move your teeth into position. They’re custom-made to fit your exact smile and because they’re made from clear plastic they are so discreet that no one needs to know you’re having treatment.
What’s more, Invisalign® clear aligners won’t interfere with your lifestyle because you can take them out to eat, brush, floss and enjoy your favourite activities!
How do Invisalign® aligners work?
Invisalign® clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth using 3D scanning technology. Every two weeks you need to change to a new set of aligners as each set is shaped slightly differently to guide your teeth into alignment.
Although you’ll need to change your aligners every two weeks, you won’t need to see us for an appointment that often. Instead, we’ll get you to come in once every six to eight weeks for your next batch of aligner trays.
That’s one of the benefits of Invisalign® treatment – less time out of your busy schedule.
Invisalign® for teens
Invisalign® treatment is also a popular option with our teenage patients here at Jacaranda Family Dental. There’s enough to be self-conscious about as a teenager without needing to put up with a mouth full of metal.
Benefits of Invisalign® treatment
Invisalign® treatment has a lot of benefits. Here are a few:
- The aligners are practically invisible: Because Invisalign® treatment doesn’t use brackets or archwires, most people won’t even notice you’re having treatment.
- It’s a hygienic treatment option: If you opt for Invisalign® treatment, you can remove your aligners to brush and floss as normal, making it easier to maintain good oral hygiene.
- The aligners are removable: If you have a special event coming up, there’s no cause for worry. On the night, simply take your aligners out. It’s fine to remove them for a couple of hours a day.
- Invisalign® treatment is suitable for most cases: Our team of orthodontic specialists can treat the majority of orthodontic cases with this virtually-invisible treatment method.
