What is Invisalign?

Invisalign in Sydney can be used for mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth, and bite issues such as overbite, crossbite or underbite. Dentists have been using Invisalign since 1997. They are transparent orthodontic devices; individually tailored dental braces, almost invisible, clear, metal-free and made of flexible plastic that contain no BPA, BPS, latex or gluten. Speak to us here at Spa Dental Sydney today to find out how Invisalign may be the ideal choice for you.

How does Invisalign work?

Here at Spa Dental Sydney, after a thorough consultation with your dentist to check your eligibility for Invisalign, we will carry out a digital scan of your teeth. A 3-dimensional simulation of your mouth will show you step by step how Invisalign will change the shape and alignment of your teeth. An impression of your mouth will be taken and a set of aligners will be custom made for you. The aligners are designed and shaped to help you reach your desired result. The process involves working your way through a series of aligners which gradually help position the teeth into the correct or desired place. You are required to wear each aligner for 2 weeks for at least 20 hours a day. Each aligner is designed to move your teeth up to 0.25 mm until they reach the final position, allowing you to transform your smile discreetly and comfortably.

What are the advantages of Invisalign?

Invisalign has many different advantages compared to traditional braces. Firstly we understand that as an adult, braces can be embarrassing and in some cases affect your self-confidence. Invisalign are transparent and almost invisible, so no one will even have to know that you are using them unless you want them to. Unlike traditional braces, they can be removed and put back in as necessary. This means they do not affect your eating habits as you are able to eat and drink whatever you like as long as you remove the aligners first. They are also very easy to clean as you can take them out whenever you need to and brush them with your ordinary toothpaste and wash them with clean water. Another advantage of Invisalign is that it provides precise and predictable results as the digital imaging which is used to develop the aligners provide accuracy and shows you what your teeth will look like as long as you comply with the treatment. As the aligners are removable it is also easier to maintain your oral hygiene with easy brushing and flossing, preventing other dental issues at the same time.
