In previous generations, braces were associated with children and teenagers, however studies show that adult orthodontic treatment is at an all-time high. This is thanks to the firm establishment of a range of invisible braces Sydney that can correct orthodontic issues in adults without anyone knowing that they are undergoing orthodontic treatment.
If you are looking to straighten your teeth, but have always been worried by the thought of wearing braces you need to speak to your dentist and learn about invisible braces. Invisible braces come in different forms, the most popular of which is Invisalign. This is a clear aligner system which, as the name suggests, is almost invisible in the mouth helping you to undergo teeth straightening at your discretion. Invisalign has helped correct more than 14 million smiles across the world and it is still the treatment of choice amongst dentists and patients. It is ideal for those who have suffered from wonky teeth throughout their life, but avoided orthodontic treatment because they did not want fixed metal braces drawing further attention to their teeth.
What does Invisalign do?
Invisalign can be used to treat a range of orthodontic issues. It can be used to straighten crooked, wonky teeth, it can create space for overcrowded and overlapping teeth, it can close minor gaps between the teeth and it can also be used in the correction of bite disorders. By addressing these issues the aligners help to improve the appearance of your smile and promote better dental health for the future. Most people use these aligners to improve the aesthetic appearance of their teeth and by doing so their teeth become easier to clean with less hard-to-reach areas in which bacteria and food particles can linger, therefore reducing the chance of developing tooth decay and gum disease.
Studies show that patients take better care of their teeth after undergoing a treatment such as Invisalign because they take more pride in their smile, urging them to maintain better dental hygiene and in turn promoting better dental health.
Individually tailored treatment plans
To find out if you can straighten your teeth with Invisalign or other similar invisible braces, you need to undergo a dental health assessment, so that your dentist can make sure that your teeth are clean and strong and that your gums are healthy and free of any signs of disease. Any indications of tooth decay or gum disease will have to be dealt with prior to beginning orthodontic treatment. The dentist will carry out a three-dimensional scan of your mouth and use this to create a sequence of aligners that will push your teeth into a neater formation. The aligners are individually tailored and the number of aligners that you need vary from patient to patient depending on your unique dental needs. Some patients can straighten their teeth in as little as six months whilst others may take 12 to 18 months, again depending on your unique dental needs. Speak to your dentist today and find out more about teeth straightening with invisible braces for straighter, healthier teeth at your discretion.
