Why do I need clear braces?


Your smile is usually the first thing people notice about you when they meet you. Having a beautiful smile can help in a number of situations, whether it is the social aspect of your life or in a professional environment. Maintaining good oral hygiene and regular check-ups with your dentist are vital in keeping your mouth healthy and beautiful at the same time. However, sometimes you might want more from your smile than just healthy teeth. There are many factors that may affect the way you feel about your smile. Clear braces in Sydney can help you with many aesthetic issues that you may have with your teeth, including teeth that are crooked or crowded, bite issues such as overbite, underbite and crossbite and other visible imperfections in your otherwise healthy dentition. Clear braces are becoming an ever-increasing popular choice of treatment among the adult population. Speak to your dentist at Spa Dental Sydney today to find out how clear braces in Sydney can work for your individual needs.

How do clear braces work?

If you are unhappy with your smile, speak to your dentist about clear braces in Sydney. Following a consultation with your dentist, a full examination will be carried out of your mouth to ensure that your teeth are healthy and eligible for a clear brace such as Invisalign. A thorough discussion will take place so that your dentist is aware of your needs and you are aware of the procedure involved and the compliance necessary for optimal outcome. Once agreed, a 3D simulation of your mouth will show you how clear braces in Sydney can help you achieve your desired smile. An impression of your teeth will be taken and a set of Invisalign aligners will be created, tailored specifically to your teeth, with each being slightly different to the previous one. These aligners need to be worn for 2 weeks each, for a minimum of 20 hours a day. Once worn for the specified period of time they can help change the alignment of your teeth to their target locations. Each aligner is designed to move your teeth up to 0.25 mm, allowing you to transform your smile discreetly and comfortably.

What are the advantages of clear braces?

The main advantage of clear braces such as Invisalign is that they are transparent and almost invisible so they do not draw unwanted attention to your teeth or smile. As an adult, we at the Spa Dental Sydney understand that traditional metal brackets and wires can be uncomfortable or feel embarrassing, in this circumstance clear braces are ideal as most people will not know that you are wearing them unless you want to tell them yourself. Another advantage of clear braces such as Invisalign is that they are convenient. You will be given 3 or 4 aligners at a time, which you change yourself every two weeks and therefore only need to visit the dentist after approximately 6 to 8 weeks to examine the current progress compared to the onset. Also, the slow but steady movement of your teeth allow a more permanent effect because of the gradual change to your mouth and therefore will not detriment your surrounding dentition either.
