If you’ve considered straightening your teeth and aligning your smile, you’ve probably thought about a range of orthodontic treatments. Modern technologies and techniques mean there are many ways to achieve your perfect smile. As well as a wide range of options for braces, patients can now invest in clear, removable aligners in the form of Invisalign.
Invisalign is a more modern treatment and a great alternative to traditional braces for many patients. Read on to learn more about Invisalign and why it might be the best choice for you.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Much like traditional braces, the Invisalign system effectively acts on your teeth, gradually moving them into a straighter, more attractive position. However, instead of fixed brackets, wires and bands, Invisalign takes advantage of clear thermoplastic aligners.
Patients wear a series of clear, removable aligners over the course of the treatment, with each new set of aligners bringing you closer to your ideal smile. The result is a fast and comfortable treatment process with fantastic results that you will want to show off.
Where Does Invisalign Lead the Way?
Invisalign stands apart from other orthodontic treatments in a range of impressive ways:
It Is Virtually Invisible
Because the aligners are clear, those around you will barely notice your new orthodontic appliance. This discreet treatment system has advantages in the school playground as well as a professional environment.
In addition to being clear, Invisalign aligners are completely removable. While they should be worn for most of the day for maximum results, you can always take them off for a special occasion and an even more confident smile. Just be sure to consult with your Sydney orthodontist first.
Almost Everything Is Easier
With Invisalign, you can forget most of the traditional complications that people usually associate with braces. Their design and technology allow for an almost seamless alignment process.
- Invisalign has no wires or brackets, meaning less irritation and greater comfort
- Invisalign aligners can be removed, meaning easy teeth cleaning and greater dietary freedom
- Invisalign braces are lower maintenance and involve fewer trips to the dentist
- In most cases, the treatment time will be shorter than traditional braces
Perfect for Patients of All Ages
Braces are traditionally associated with childhood, meaning many adults who didn’t have the opportunity simply live with misaligned teeth. While Invisalign is the perfect option for self-conscious teens, it’s also great for working professionals. From ultimate discretion to distraction-free comfort, all the benefits of Invisalign can make life easier as a working professional.
Whether you’re going back to braces in adulthood or you’ve never had your teeth aligned, Invisalign may be ideal for you.
