Do you wish you had straighter teeth, but don’t want to the difficult experience provided by metal braces? Invisalign treatments are an alternative to braces that may just be the perfect option for getting those straight teeth you desire.
Teeth Straightening with Invisalign
Invisalign is an alternative orthodontic treatment to traditional braces. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth with results you’ll notice sooner than you think. The treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into straighter position step by step, until you have a more beautiful smile. Unlike braces, the removable nature of the aligners means you can take them out for special occasions, continue to eat your favourite foods and brush & floss to maintain good oral hygiene. There are no metal brackets to attach, and no wires to tighten.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
- Straight Teeth
- Less uneven wear on teeth
- Near invisible braces
- Easy to clean and eat teeth while using treatment
To begin, you will have a FREE initial consultation with our Invisalign dentist Dr. Michael Nguyen. He will help to determine what your teeth straightening goals are and establish whether you are a candidate for this method. As part of the process to determine if you are a candidate, our staff will take x-rays and pictures, as well as make impressions of your teeth for models. If you are established as a candidate for Invisalign in Melbourne, these x-rays, pictures and impressions will be utilized to custom create the Invisalign central aligning retainers, which will reflect the exact teeth movements you will undergo through the treatment period.
You will be required to wear the aligners throughout the day, only removing them to eat, brush or floss. While the actual time frame may vary slightly, you will change your aligner trays to a new tray every fortnight. Our Invisalign Melbourne dentist will check your progress around every 6 weeks. The length of the treatment time will vary by individual, but our dentist will give you an estimated date of completion according to your progress and results.
