Modern teeth straightening with Invisalign


If you are affected by crooked or uneven teeth and have been thinking about speaking to your dentist about teeth straightening then visit us at Spa Dental Sydney and find out about Invisalign Sydney. Invisalign Sydney is a modern form of dental technology that was first introduced in 1999, developed by a group of graduate students at Stanford University, which has corrected more than 14 million smiles in less than 25 years. Invisalign Sydney uses a series of clear thermoplastic aligners that move your teeth sequentially. These aligners are almost invisible and cannot be detected unless someone comes up very close, so you can straighten your teeth at your discretion. Each of these aligners is worn for about 2 weeks, after which you move on to the next aligner in the series.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign works by applying pressure to your teeth which gives rise to incremental movements, approximately 0.25 mm per aligner until your teeth create a neatly aligned formation. It is a highly popular teeth-straightening option amongst dentists and patients alike. In fact hundreds of thousands of dentists have also straightened their teeth using Invisalign

In comparison to traditional orthodontic braces, as well as being discreet, Invisalign is a much simpler and more convenient treatment option. Traditional braces consist of many different components that include brackets, wires and bands which need to be tightened and adjusted on a regular basis as part of the procedure. Invisalign is a lot more simple. The invisible and highly convenient aligners are swapped over by yourself in the comfort of your own home.

An individually tailored treatment plan for you

To find out if you can straighten your teeth with Invisalign you need to book an appointment here at Spa Dental Sydney. We will examine your teeth for any signs of tooth decay or gum disease as this will need to be treated first. You will then undergo a 3D iTero scan that will be used to create an animation of how your teeth will need to move to create a neatly aligned smile. Our dentist will be able to tell you if this is suitable for your teeth, whether you can use Invisalign as a standalone treatment or if you require a combined treatment plan and how long the treatment will take from start to finish if you adhere to the protocol.

If you want to move your teeth safely then there is a certain speed that you can move them. However studies show that Invisalign is approximately 5 months quicker at safely straightening your teeth then traditional orthodontic braces. Most people require an average of 6 to 12 months to straighten their teeth and you can enjoy visible results from around 3 months. The number of aligners that you need and the length of the treatment will depend on your individual orthodontic issues with more complicated cases requiring up to 18 months to treat.
