A fully grown adult jaw line is made up of 32 teeth, of which there are four wisdom teeth. The wisdom teeth are the last of our adult teeth to come through, right up the back of the mouth on both sides of our top and bottom jaw. Generally, wisdom teeth will begin to erupt between the ages of 17 and 25, however sometimes they may not appear until a later date, or in some cases may never erupt at all. Not everyone has wisdom teeth and generally an X-ray is required to record their presence or absence.
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.
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 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.
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.
