Straighten teeth with Invisalign aligners
Invisalign is used for the treatment of straightening teeth and is an alternative to braces. Because Invisalign involves a series of clear plastic aligners there is no need for metal wires or brackets; they are virtually invisible. This makes Invisalign an attractive alternative to braces, particularly if you are image conscious or don’t want your treatment to be noticed by others.
How does Invisalign work?
Throughout your treatment we will supply you with a series of aligners, each of which will make slight adjustments to the position of your teeth. You will need to come and visit us in Coorparoo to receive the next set of aligners in the series, which will continue to move your teeth gradually. This process is repeated until your teeth reach the desired position.
Dr Phelan and Dr Crowther spend time planning the movement of your teeth using a virtual 3D model known as a Clincheck. This is used to custom-make your aligners so they fit comfortably in your mouth yet carry out the treatment effectively.
Benefits of Invisalign
- Invisalign aligners are removable so won’t interfere with eating, or brushing and flossing your teeth. With the aligners virtually invisible you can carry on with everyday activities knowing that no one is likely to notice your treatment.
- The 3D technology supporting Invisalign means our orthodontists can predict the length of time your treatment will take.
- The custom-made aligners are designed to fit perfectly in your mouth leaving little cause for irritation which can sometimes occur with traditional braces.
