Invisalign: Orthodontic treatment without the metal and brackets

 

Have you always wanted straight teeth but been put off by the thought of wearing metal braces? Maybe you think the time has passed to fix your overbite, crossbite, underbite, overcrowded or widely spaced teeth? The clear alternative for traditional braces is Invisalign.

It's never too late to seek a solution for straighter teeth that can bring you both the functionality and cosmetic design you desire. Invisalign Braces are a fantastic option, no matter what your age. Take advantage of removable aligners which allow you to eat what you want, when you want, and also give you the comfort of not having to worry about metal wires.

There are four steps a patient will go through on their journey to straighter teeth with Invisalign.

Initial Consultation

So if you’ve decided that Invisalign is for you, simply visit our Invisalign-trained dentist Dr George Connell for an initial consultation. During your initial consultation at Sydney Dental Surgeons, Dr Connell will discuss the issues that you are having with your teeth and understand the ideal results you would like to achieve. Invisalign is not the suitable treatment for everyone; hence you will be provided with information on all the different forms of orthodontic treatment available, helping you make an informed and correct decision.

Treatment Plan

A virtual treatment plan generated by Align Technology's unique ClinCheck® software shows the series of movements your teeth will go through over the course of the treatment. This allows you to see upfront what your teeth are expected to look like at the end of the treatment. From the results of the ClinCheck software, your custom-made, clear aligners are produced especially for you.

Bespoke Aligner

Bespoke aligners are the set of custom made aligners designed to each be worn for approximately two weeks before advancing to the next aligner in the series. Typically, a whole series of aligners will include 18-36 trays, which may include sets for both your upper and lower teeth. This means that most treatment plans usually last between 9 months and 18 months, depending on the severity of the misalignment.

Treatment Process

To take full advantage of the treatment process the aligners are worn both day and night and only removed when eating, brushing and flossing. This ensures that the treatment plan is correct and time frames for switching to the next set of aligners are accurate. Check-ups will generally occur every 4-6 weeks so that Dr Connell can monitor your progress. You will start to notice small changes with each set of aligners that are used.
