Orthodontics : Invisalign (Clear Aligners)

Northern Beaches Dental is a recognised Invisalign (Clear Aligners) provider. Suitable for adults and for some teens, Invisalign (Clear Aligners) is an extremely popular removable aligner system. Treatment is preplanned and by using the latest digital technology, you will be able to see a virtual image of your new smile before your treatment begins. All you have to do is to wear each set of clear plastic aligners for two weeks, before discarding them for the next set in the series. We find a lot of people love this system because the aligners are taken out for eating and for brushing and flossing so there is minimal disruption to everyday life.


A straighter smile can be healthier and more attractive

Most people believe that Orthodontic treatment is used mainly for cosmetic reasons, but it also helps to keep your teeth healthier. When the teeth are crooked, it is hard to keep them clean and studies show that there is a higher risk of getting gum disease . The way your teeth come together when you bite can be less than ideal as well which can cause undue wear and tear on your teeth and jaw joints. Orthodontic treatment can help not just to improve your smile, but also keep your teeth healthier.

Invisalign and other clear aligners like Clear Correct, Tru-line, etc is a very popular orthodontic treatment option to correct and align your teeth. Treatment involves wearing a series of custom made removable clear plastic trays which will need to be changed every two weeks approximately. The treatment is pre-planned and by using the latest digital technology, you will be able to see a virtual image of your new smile before you start treatment. This treatment is extremely popular because the aligners are discreet and there is minimal disruption to your everyday life.

Dr Simi Jacob at Northern Beaches Dental is a trained Invisalign provider and will be able to assess your teeth and will let you know if you would be a suitable candidate for treatment. We believe that early diagnosis is very important and for more challenging treatments, we work closely with the local orthodontists and have a good referral and follow up system in place even after your treatment is completed so that we can monitor you teeth and gums long term.
