REAL-LIFE STORY: One of our clients was told she would have to spend two years in braces and on completion of her treatment she would also need extensive crown and bridge work done to polish her look. She saw us and we used Invisalign for her dental health issues and at the end of her treatment, she was so happy with the result she didn’t need to pursue the extra crowns and bridges. She was an ideal patient because she wore her aligners and continued to see us for regular check-ups to ensure they were fit correctly. The results well surpassed her expectations.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an innovative teeth-straightening system that relies on “invisible” clear plastic aligners as opposed to braces that are fixe
d to the teeth. The treatment involves the use of a series of removable aligners that fit over the teeth (similar to a mouthguard); these are replaced with a new set every two weeks, and these consecutive sets of aligners gradually move the teeth into their new, premium alignment for the perfect smile and functionality.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign offers many benefits to patients and is, for many, one of the preferred option for orthodontic treatment. These benefits include:
- Improved overall appearance during the treatment period.
- Aligners are almost “invisible” and not easily noticed by others.
- Comfortable to wear.
- No metal components, so that teeth and gums do not become irritated.
- Aligners are removable, ensuring normal eating, brushing and flossing.
- Outstanding end results.
How can you get the best Invisalign treatment?
Invisalign is a tool that orthodontists use to straighten teeth and create the perfect smile. Like any tool, it is only as good as the skills and attention of the person using it. This is why it’s important to select a premium provider who has experience and expertise in the use of Invisalign technology.
While some general dentists offer Invisalign for teeth straightening, it’s extremely important you choose a specialist orthodontist to oversee your treatments, particularly for orthodontic cases that are moderate to severe. Results of teeth straightening can vary enormously depending on the skill and experience of the dental-care provider, and specialist orthodontists are specifically and expertly trained in all areas of teeth straightening including Invisalign.
