Nowadays, appearance and particularly one’s smile is paramount. Invisible braces, also known by the brand name Invisalign, are clear orthodontic aligners that work in the same way as conventional braces. However, Invisalign has the added benefit of being far less noticeable in the mouth compared to traditional braces.
When you visit Goulburn Dental Care you can find out if you may be a good candidate for Invisalign. Patients who have mild to moderately crowded teeth with minor spacing issues may benefit from Invisalign. However if you have severe crowding or spacing issues with your teeth or severe underbite or overbite, this treatment may not be suitable.
Invisalign can be an effective treatment for crooked teeth, not only for children and teenagers but for adults as well.
In fact, the process of straightening a child or teenager’s teeth is complicated, as their jaw and teeth are still growing. Whereas the process of straightening an adult’s teeth is more straightforward due to them being fully grown.
Once you visit Goulburn Dental Care, we will assess and create a plan for your teeth.
Invisalign is made from clear plastic material that is fit tightly over your teeth. It needs to be kept in the mouth, however it can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing. You will get a new aligner every few weeks to continue to move teeth into the desired position. Treatment and wearing the Invisalign teeth aligners usually takes between 10 – 24 months.
