Invisalign, no one will even notice

Invisalign is a treatment option that many patients are suited for. Invisalign is the clear alternative to braces and consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every two weeks for the next set of new aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move – gradually, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position calculated by your orthodontist. Invisalign treatment will fit in simply and easily into your daily routine without any fuss or embarrassment. Without metal wires or brackets, there is no need to worry about mouth irritations, as the aligners are comfortable to wear and can be easily removed for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing. It is recommended that you wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day. As the Invisalign aligners are transparent and difficult to detect when worn, they allow you to straighten your teeth without feeling self-conscious. People won’t even notice you’re wearing them.

Invisalign Advantages

  • The appliances are close to invisible, and can be removed for social situations that involve eating or drinking so no one will know you are undergoing treatment unless you decide to tell them!
  • The aligners are very comfortable to wear and are made from medical grade thermo plastic.
  • Easy to care for! Just remove the aligners for brushing and flossing no fuss!
  • Time friendly! You will spend less time at the orthodontist which helps with a busy lifestyle.

Invisalign Disdvantages

  • Compliance – the aligners need to be worn for around 20 – 22 hours per day to get the required results so self -discipline is a must.
  • Invisalign is not suited to every patient. Some people need more complex treatment and therefore are not suited to Invisalign. Your specialist orthodontist will be able to help you make an informed decision.

How to get the most from Invisalign

For Invisalign to be effective you will need to wear your aligner trays all the time, only taking them out to eat and drink, and to brush and floss your teeth. This does require some self-discipline however most people will find clear aligners easy to use. You can achieve a great smile without too much interference in your daily life and the best part is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.

Always remember, our orthodontists are all registered specialists, and can provide you with the best care and outcome. The more experience your practitioner has with any kind of orthodontic treatment the more effectively they can treat a wider range of problems. This is also true with Invisalign and another reason why you should always choose a specialist orthodontist to provide your Invisalign care.
