Invisalign Melbourne VIC
Metallic braces are no longer the only option for straightening teeth. Fine Dentistry’s Melbourne clinic offers our patients the latest in dental technology, including the innovative Invisalign teeth straightening product. The set of almost invisible, removable and comfortable teeth straightening aligners work just as effectively as traditional braces. The new technology reduces the embarrassment of wearing noticeable braces during teenage or adult years.
The clear aligners are produced to suit each individual mouth to correct a range of problems. A series of aligners are customised to your mouth, which are worn every day, changing every two weeks over the course of your treatment. The aligners can treat a variety of problems, such as overcrowding, wide spacing, crossbite, overbite and underbite. Whether your problems are minor or more severe, we can assess your suitability at our Melbourne clinic.
Invisalign involves a step by step process in achieving the finished treatment. It begins with a first consultation. This is where your orthodontic needs will be assessed and it will be determined whether the Invisalign treatment is the best option for you. Moving on from that, 3D scans of your mouth will be made. These digital scans will be used to plan your treatment, allowing you to view all stages of your Invisalign plan. From there, your Invisalign trays will be created and you can begin treatment. You will transition from tray to tray throughout the orthodontic plan as your teeth move to the determined position.
During treatment it’s important to still take care of your teeth. Every time you eat, you’ll need to thoroughly brush your teeth before putting your trays back in so your teeth don’t fester in plaque or tartar. All of these details will be explained during your consultation so that your treatment will go as smoothly as possible.
Why Choose Invisalign?
Clear aligners offer a range of advantages over traditional braces:
Removable: Good oral hygiene is easily maintained. Unlike traditional metal braces, the aligners can be removed for eating or drinking and for brushing and flossing.
Comfort: The aligners are comfortable to wear, with some pressure being felt at first.
Invisible: The aligners are almost undetectable so your treatment is less noticeable and you can continue to show off your smile.
Convenient: It will only be necessary to visit your dentist every 6 – 8 weeks, rather than the 3 – 4 weeks required for traditional metallic braces.
Undertaking the teeth straightening process can be a commitment over a long period. However, the treatment can make you feel more at ease smiling. Many people undergo the procedure in teenage years, but it can also be done as an adult and can help to put you more at ease in social situations or help you smile for pictures.
