Invisalign: The Modern Teeth Straightening System
Are you looking for the most innovative treatment to fix your crooked, crowded, or spaced teeth without the hassle of metal braces? Then Invisalign might be your answer. We have experienced and certified Invisalign experts at Nowra Dentists that can help determine if Invisalign is the right treatment for you.
Invisalign is the modern alternative to metal braces. It uses custom-fit clear aligner trays that slowly move your teeth into position. Many of our patients have made the Invisalign choice because they are virtually invisible and they are more convenient.
The Invisalign treatment begins with a dental examination which will discern if you are a suitable Invisalign candidate. Invisalign is used to correct mild to moderate teeth misalignments including:
- Overbite or Underbite
- Open bite
- Gapped Teeth
- Crowded Teeth
A consultation will also help our dentist identify your other dental concerns that will need to be addressed prior to receiving your clear aligners. Such that, dental decay and infection will first need treatment for maximum Invisalign treatment efficiency and to prevent future dental problems.
Then, a 3D scan will be taken which will help determine the course of treatment, including how many aligners you will need to perfect your smile. From the scan, your aligners will be made and the first set will be sent to you.
You are to wear the clear aligners for at least 22 hours a day, only removing them when you have to eat or clean them. As your teeth shift, the aligners will naturally loosen so you will need to have them replaced every 2 weeks.
Compliance is the most important key to excellent progress. As long as you follow your dentist’s advice, you are sure to have your dream smile in no time!
