    Teeth Straightening with Invisalign

    Smiles planned to perfection with Invisalign clear aligner technology

    Teeth Straightening with Invisalign

    Teeth straightening with relative ease is now possible for adults of any age with Invisalign clear aligner technology. No longer available to just a few, teeth straightening is now accessible to adult patients whose teeth have moved with age or who didn’t have the opportunity to straighten teeth during childhood. Traditional fixed metal braces are an unappealing thought for many. If you fall into this category, Dental Art is able to provide Invisalign treatment that works.

    Among the many benefits of Invisalign for teeth straightening is the fact it is a far more discreet approach towards orthodontic treatment. Although Invisalign may not be suitable for every patient, a consult with one of the Dental Art St Kilda team dentists will answer all your questions. We’ll even share some of our patient success stories!

    Invisalign questions? Let’s answer them

    What is Invisalign?

    Invisalign® is a fully removable aligner system. Instead of braces, we supply custom-made clear BPA-free plastic aligners that fit closely over your teeth, gently yet firmly moving them into the correct positions. Gradually over time this creates a straighter smile.

    The aligners are virtually invisible once in the mouth. Each set of aligners is worn for approximately two weeks, before you discard them for new aligners. This continues to gently move your teeth until treatment is completed. Treatment times vary according to the complexity of the problems to be addressed. A consultation with our experienced dentist at Dental Art will provide you with a more accurate treatment time.

    Why is Invisalign a good way to straighten teeth?

    The Invisalign system is very user-friendly. Aligners are virtually invisible and removed for eating and whenever you want to brush and floss.

    With Invisalign, you won’t spend excessive time cleaning around fiddly brackets and wires. You don’t even need to change your diet. Instead, you can continue with everyday life while your teeth are straightened. Most patients find there is virtually no impact on your social, work, or regular daily life.

    As part of your Invisalign treatment plan, we will see you at regular intervals to check treatment is progressing as planned and to provide more aligners. These appointments are brief as adjustments aren’t required as they are for conventional fixed braces.

    Who can have Invisalign treatment?

    Invisalign is best suited for adults, however, in some cases it might be suitable for older teens who can demonstrate a high level of commitment to the daily straightening regime (aligners must be worn 22 hours daily).

     Invisalign can correct a large number of orthodontic problems, including overcrowding and teeth that are out of alignment. Bite problems – such as open bites, crossbites, overbites and underbites – can be corrected too. Invisalign can also close up or minimise spaces in between teeth.

    What is the procedure for Invisalign?

    When you come to see us here at Dental Art, we will carefully examine your mouth to identify the problems requiring correction. As part of that process, we take photos and use Invisalign’s software to plan treatment step-by-step. The software produces virtual images so you can see how your teeth will move and of course the final results.

    Following this step, your aligners are custom-made so you can begin straightening your teeth.

    If you would like to find out more about Invisalign, why not give us a call? A chat with one of our dentists can confirm if Invisalign is right for you. We can also answer any questions you have.

    Why choose Invisalign to straighten teeth?

    Apart from straighter teeth being easier to clean, there are many other reasons that make Invisalign a good choice for teeth straightening

    1. Virtually invisible: Invisalign aligners are a clear alternative to braces, providing a virtually invisible braces option that lets you keep your confidence and lifestyle even during treatment.
    2. More comfortable: Invisalign aligners are comfortable, with no metal brackets to irritate gums or inside of the mouth.
    3. Maintain oral hygiene with ease: Invisalign aligners are removable so it’s easier to clean teeth and maintain oral health during treatment.
    4. Potentially fewer dental visits: Invisalign treatment typically requires fewer visits during treatment than other types of braces.
    5. Track your progress: Invisalign Treatment allows you to see each stage of the treatment process, from the beginning to the end, including in cases where treatment needs to be refined progressively.
    6. As the aligners are almost invisible, most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them so you can keep doing what you love.
