Do you want a straighter smile? With Invisalign, our dentist can help you achieve your dream smile!
Everyone wants a straight, ice white, healthy smile, regardless of what it may take to get one.
But when, as an adult, our dentist in Mackay mentions braces, perhaps you instantly change your mind and decide that you can probably tolerate your slightly crooked teeth? After all, as an adult, you have to appear more professional, and orthodontic braces can really impact on your appearance.
Our dentist in Mackay is aware that orthodontic treatments can seem daunting to people, but as dentistry has advanced, so has the variety of aligners and braces we can now offer our patients.
At Northern Beaches Dental in Mackay, we are proud to be able to offer our patients advanced orthodontic and cosmetic treatments, combined into the popular and famous Invisalign aligner.
But what makes the Invisalign aligner so special? Our dentist in Mackay has been told by our patientsof the many benefits that this treatment has to offer, so we have compiled a list of the advantages of Invisalign.
The Invisalign aligner is without doubt, an extremely comfortable brace. It is custom fitted to slip over your teeth and as your teeth move throughout treatment, you will be able to move on to a different aligner to complete the next stage of treatment.
As it is not made of metal, and is flexible, it sits snugly in your mouth and does not cause discomfort from rubbing against your braces or tongue. Many patients are able to sleep with their aligner in without issue.
The aligner is made from a clear, flexible plastic, making it a very discreet way to straighten your teeth.
It is in the family of ‘invisible braces’, meaning that, unless your friends and family are looking extremely hard at your teeth, they are unlikely to spot it! Perfect!
Although you will have to wear the aligner for up to 22 hours a day to gain the full benefit, it is removable.
This allows you to carry on with your regular dental routine, allows you to eat certain foods, without fear of them becoming stuck in your teeth, and even allows you to take them out during a dental check-up.
The Invisalign system is combined with computer technology, in order to explore the simplest way to rearrange your teeth.
You will be fully aware of these movements before your treatment begins, and will have a better idea of how each stage of the treatment will look, eliminating any unexpected results.
The Invisalign aligner has an average treatment time of around 12 months, with some patients requiring less time than this.
This is an incredibly fast turnaround when compared to other orthodontic aligners in the market, meaning you can have more time to show off your gleaming, straight new smile.
