What are Invisible Braces?
Dental braces are a form of treatment for crooked or misaligned teeth. Braces also help to rectify gaps between your teeth and improve your bite. In recent years, many dentists across the globe have adopted invisible braces to suit client preferences.
In Australia, invisible braces have gained popularity since the launch of invisible orthodontics – Invisalign® in February 2002. Today more than 890,000 people are enjoying the benefits of Invisalign braces. Below are some of the benefits of using invisible braces.
- Improves dental structure
- Aesthetically appealing
- Quick and visible progress
- Unlimited dietary options
1. Improve Dental Structure
Braces help to improve your dental structure in many ways. An ideal dental structure not only improves your smile but also enables you to chew better. Straight aligned teeth are also easier to brush or floss. Aligning your teeth also reduces their rates of wear and limits degradation over time. Below are some dental structural challenges that warrant the use of braces.
- Irregular spacing between teeth
- Teeth that are overcrowded or crooked
- Overjet: When your upper teeth stick out
- Overbite: When your lower teeth bite too far behind the upper ones
- Underbite: When your upper front teeth bite behind the lower ones
2. Aesthetic Appeal
Many people have fears about wearing dental braces. Conventional metal braces can be intimidating or attract undesired attention. Yet, it is not easy to notice if someone is wearing invisible braces. The aesthetic appeal of invisible braces boosts confidence. The availability of invisible orthodontics has led more people to seek dental braces.
3. Quick and visible progress
The Invisalign treatment we offer is popular because it tracks your treatment. With 3D computer imaging technology, you can see your treatment plan from beginning to end.
The treatment produces custom clear aligners to suit your teeth and the outcome you desire. These aligners gradually adjust the position of your teeth.
Depending on your treatment plan, your dentist can replace the aligners twice a month. The lack of metal parts also reduces the time you spend in the dentist’s office for adjustments.
Invisalign treatment plan durations vary from 6 to 24 months based on the severity of your case. Yet, on average, our Invisalign treatment plans last about a year.
4. Unlimited dietary options
With invisible braces, you are free to eat anything you desire. Our treatment plan recommends that you remove your braces when you are eating. Traditional braces require you to avoid foods that can get stuck or entangled in the metal brackets or wires. Taking everything into account, invisible braces offer several advantages to anyone who needs dental orthodontics. Yet, only an accredited dentist can guide you on the appropriate treatment for your case.
