Invisible Braces for All Ages

Are you a parent or guardian? You may find that you have a major role to play in terms of fostering important oral hygiene habits early on for children under your care. At Sunshine Dental Group, we understand that a child’s first impression of a dental clinic and their initial interactions with a dentist can make quite an impact on what they think of the dentist as well as taking care of their pearly whites.

To ensure that you and your children receive the best possible oral health service, we run a family-focused clinic that is tailored to accommodate patients of all ages. Specifically, if you are concerned about the alignment of your teeth, or your child’s teeth, we offer a range of orthodontic options including invisible braces.

Rather than fuss over those outdated traditional braces with the metal brackets and wiring, the team at Sunshine Dental Group offer a much more desirable orthodontic treatment in the form of invisible braces.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an innovative teeth straightening technology that is much more child-friendly than some of the other orthodontic treatments currently available. Invisalign is the clear alternative to metal braces. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth with results you’ll notice sooner than you think.

The course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into a 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 and floss to maintain good oral hygiene. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten.

What Benefits Do These Clear Aligners Offer?

Invisalign offers a range of advantages that contribute to its appeal and effectiveness:

  1. Discreet Appearance: Invisalign systems eliminate the need for visible metal brackets and wires, providing a discreet orthodontic solution. They are virtually invisible when worn, making it easy to straighten your teeth without being noticed. This particularly appeals to those who prefer a more subtle approach to orthodontic care.
  2. Removable Design: Invisalign aligners are designed to be removable. While they should be worn throughout the day and night, they can be taken out when you eat, drink, or brush your teeth. This flexibility means you can enjoy your favourite foods without restrictions and easily maintain good oral hygiene.
  3. Comfortable Wear: Invisalign aligners are known for their comfort as they have no sharp edges or protruding wires. Many patients find them so comfortable that they quickly forget they’re-they’re wearing them, enhancing the overall orthodontic experience.
  4. Easy Oral Hygiene: Maintaining proper oral hygiene is straightforward with Invisalign. Since these aligners are removable, you can enjoy brushing and flossing as usual. This contrasts traditional braces, which can present challenges when cleaning your teeth.
  5. Minimal Impact on Lifestyle: Invisalign aligners have minimal impact on your day-to-day life. They can be removed for special occasions or events, providing flexibility that traditional braces can’t match. This feature allows you to maintain your regular lifestyle without significant disruptions.

What Is Involved?

To begin, you will have a free initial consultation with our Invisalign dentist Dr. Michael Nguyen. He will determine what your teeth straightening goals are and to 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 Sunshine, these x-rays, pictures, and impressions will be utilised to create your exact treatment course that will show exact teeth movements throughout the process.

What We Treat?

Some of the conditions that we treat with Invisalign are:

  • Crowded Teeth: Invisalign can gradually move and align crowded teeth to create the spacing for a straighter smile.
  • Spaces and Gaps: Invisalign can close gaps and spaces between teeth by applying gentle pressure to shift them into the desired position.
  • Overbite: Invisalign can help correct an overbite where the upper front teeth overlap the lower front teeth.
  • Underbite: Invisalign can address an underbite, where the lower front teeth protrude past the upper front teeth.
  • Crossbite: Invisalign effectively treats a crossbite, where some upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth when biting down.
  • Open Bite: Invisalign can correct an open bite, where the upper and lower teeth do not make proper contact when the mouth is closed.
  • Misaligned Teeth: Invisalign can straighten teeth that are misaligned or tilted, providing a more uniform and harmonious smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Invisalign Braces Treatment Painful?

Invisalign braces treatment is generally not painful. One of its key advantages is its comfort compared to traditional braces. Most of the time, patients forget they even have their Invisalign aligners in. When you transition to a new set of aligners, you might experience some tightness as they move your teeth, but this sensation is typically mild and temporary, lasting for about 24 hours or so.

How Much Do They Cost?

The cost of the treatment varies widely depending on factors such as the individual’s specific case, the location of the dental practice, and any additional services needed. It’s recommended to consult with our team to get an accurate cost estimate for your particular situation.

Will Wearing Clear Aligners Affect My Speech?

Clear aligners may temporarily affect speech, causing a slight lisp or speech adjustment. Most people adapt quickly, and speech issues resolve within a few days.

Is There Any Age Limit for Invisalign?

Invisalign is suitable for a wide age range. There’s no strict age limit, and teenagers and adults can use it.

Can I Eat and Drink with My Invisalign Trays In?

It’s better to remove your Invisalign trays when you eat or drink anything other than water. If you leave them in while eating or drinking, bits of food and drinks can get trapped in the aligners, which may stain your teeth or cause tooth problems like cavities. So, to keep your teeth healthy and avoid staining, remove your aligners when you have food or drinks.
