Invisible Orthodontics – Invisalign®
If you are suffering from crooked teeth and you are not a fan of wearing the old traditional metal braces, Dental Avenue brings in another option that might just work for you. Invisalign invisible braces are a series of removable and virtually invisible clear aligners which gently move and straighten your teeth over time. Invisalign transparent braces straighten your teeth using a series of invisible custom-moulded, removable aligners. We at Dental Avenue use no metal wires or bands to irritate your mouth, and best of all, most people will not notice you are even wearing them! This type of treatment offers you the choice of wearing a clear and sometimes removable appliance while straightening and aligning your teeth without the metal and wire.
Invisalign uses 3D computer imaging technology to depict the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position from which a series of custom-made, clear “aligners” are produced. Each aligner moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about two weeks, then is replaced by the next in the series until the final position is achieved. There may be some discomfort at the beginning of when you start wearing each new set of aligners in your series, although this usually goes away after a couple of days.
More advantages of Invisalign include:
- Straighter teeth and alignment of your top and bottom jaws.
- Unlike braces, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment (we do recommend removing aligners whilst eating)
- You can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
- There are no metal brackets or wires as with braces to cause mouth irritation, and no metal or wires means you spend less time in the doctor’s chair getting adjustments.
- Invisalign allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
