Clear Braces: Now You See Them, Now You Don't!

by - 11:42 AM

If you're looking for clear braces Sydney, you'll find that there are a number of discreet options on the market. One of the popular options for treating mild to moderate alignment issues is Invisalign. When it comes to having convenience and discreet treatment, Invisalign is a treatment you should be asking your dentist about. If you need to find a dentist who offers clear braces, check if they have accreditation as a Diamond provider of Invisalign if you want to get the experience of someone who delivers at least 150 patients with this treatment every year. 

How does Invisalign work? 
First of all you need to know what Invisalign is. Invisalign is a treatment that consists of using plastic aligners that are made bespoke to fit your mouth precisely. Using iTero technology, your dentist will use this digital scan to get the measurements for your aligners and from this, they will then be able to have your aligners manufactured in the Invisalign laboratory. They will also be able to generate a 3D animation of what your teeth should look like after treatment has been completed, before you even get started. As you wear your aligners, they apply pressure to the teeth to push them into the desired position. You will be provided with batches of aligners to change between on a weekly basis and you will need to see your dentist for a check-up, and to receive more aligners, every 6 weeks or so. 

Why should I choose Invisalign? 
If your dentist recommends Invisalign for your specific needs, it will be because you have a mild to moderate alignment issue such as crossbite, under or overbite, crowded or gapped teeth. If you are offered this treatment, there are lots of reasons to be pleased about it! Firstly, when you are wearing the aligners, they should be almost invisible because the plastic is transparent, so only your teeth should be visible through them. Another benefit of choosing Invisalign is the fact that the aligners are removable for up to 2 hours a day. Allowing you to remove them when you want to eat, brush and floss, or do other things such as play sports or head out for a date - looking good! You won’t need to avoid any food on the menu and you can maintain your oral hygiene routine by brushing and flossing afterwards. If you’re feeling impatient about getting results, Invisalign could yield results in as little as 6 to 12 months, so they are also a good option if you’re feeling a little impatient. There is a version for teenagers, and Invisalign is suitable for most people with all of their adult teeth. 

How do I get Invisalign? 
If you are keen to find out more about whether or not you would be suitable for Invisalign, you first need to find a dental practice that offers this treatment. You should then arrange an initial consultation to allow the dentist to thoroughly examine your mouth in order to be able to advise which treatments would suit your specific needs. If Invisalign is an option, you could be looking at your new aligners in no time - before you put them in your mouth and they disappear from view. Blink and you’ll miss them! Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
