A lot of adults don’t feel comfortable with the thought of getting adult braces, as it can make even the best of us feel a little self-conscious. This is why Invisalign is such a good alternative.
Virtually clear, effective, and more affordable than you might think, Invisalign is a fantastic alternative to traditional braces for adults with dental issues like misaligned jaws, crooked teeth and etc.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is the clear and invisible solution for straightening your teeth. Worldwide, more than 4.5 million people have used Invisalign to correct issues with crooked teeth and misaligned jaws.
Invisalign uses a set of clear aligners that are made from a transparent, dental-grade plastic that acts like traditional braces, but also comes with a host of additional benefits.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign works by using a series of clear trays that gradually shift your teeth into place. Each tray is manufactured so the teeth are slightly straighter than the previous tray, with teeth typically moving about 0.25mm per tray.
To get started, you’ll need to book an appointment with South Perth Dental Excellence for an initial consultation. After this consultation, your dentist will perform a digital scan that will allow them to come up with a customised treatment plan. These 3D images will map out the movement over your teeth over the course of the treatment, which will identify how your clear aligners are made.
The length of treatment is something that will vary from patient to patient, but typically lasts from 12-18 months.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Imagine getting a straight smile in half the time you would with traditional braces, while having no unsightly wires on your teeth? These reasons alone sound pretty amazing, but Invisalign comes with a number of other substantial benefits, including:
- Precise, predictable and gradual teeth movement
- Less dental visits
- Virtually invisible aligners that won’t affect your confidence
- No limitations on the type of foods and drinks you can consume
- More comfortable than traditional braces
- You can brush and floss like normal, with no wires getting in your way
- The aligners can be removed, so you can easily clean them and look after your own oral hygiene
