“Alternative to braces delivering amazing results”
Adults and teens who do not wish to wear metal braces have an excellent alternative – Invisalign.
Invisalign is the virtually invisible and hygienic alternative to braces. Invisalign uses a series of custom-made, clear, removable aligners that gradually move teeth toward the smile you’ve always wanted. Mainly suitable for patients over 18 years of age, Invisalign is so discreet; most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them.
The removable nature of the aligners means you can take them out for special occasions, continue to eat your favourite foods and brush and floss normally to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
At Maylands Dental Centre we offer a FREE orthodontic consultation to assess your suitability for not just Invisalign but also other orthodontic options such as fixed braces and plates.
The treatment starts with a thorough dental consultation at our clinic. During the consultation, you can ask us as many questions as you like. Our dentist will answer all your questions to your satisfaction before we commence the actual treatment.
Once you decide to go ahead, we will evaluate your smile and then chart out a highly customized smile correction plan that suits your specific goals and requirements. We will discuss the plan with you and answer any questions you may have. Then your custom aligners will be created and our dentist will show you how to use them.
You will typically be wearing each set of aligners for about 22 hours every day. The aligners are changed on a regular basis as directed by our dentist. The aligners will slowly shift your teeth to the correct position. At the end of the treatment you will have a gorgeous smile.
The time to complete the treatment depends on a variety of factors such as the complexity of your situation, and how often you are able to wear the aligners. Our dentist will be able to give you a clear picture after a consultation.
A typical case may take about one year from start to finish. Bear in mind that you will have to see your dentist on a regular basis to review your progress. If there are any adjustments to be made, we will make them and the treatment will continue as planned. It usually takes between 18 to 30 sets of aligners for the treatment to get completed. However, your specific case may differ – the duration of treatment and the number of aligners can vary.
Invisalign is commonly used across the country to treat a vast majority of smile-related problems. Whether you have crooked or misaligned teeth, gaps between the teeth, or even something that requires more extensive adjustments, Invisalign can help. Overcrowding, wide spacing between teeth, overbites, under-bites, cross-bites etc. can be corrected using Invisalign.
The best thing about Invisalign is that it will not mar your appearance in any way even during the treatment time. Since the aligners are virtually invisible, people won’t even notice that you are wearing them. Nothing gets in the way of your smile or confidence in social situations, even when you are under the treatment.
Invisalign is the preferred choice for many people across the world. It is absolutely unobtrusive whether you are in a business meeting or an informal gathering. Since there are no metal parts, you don’t have to worry about wires poking into your mouth and causing infection.
You will have a completely natural beautiful smile at the end of the treatment period.
