Dental 266: The Most Preferred Sydney Invisalign Provider
The Leading Provider of Invisible Orthodontics in Sydney
There is a new brand of orthodontics in town – and it’s called Invisalign. Invisalign is the latest brand in invisible orthodontics – sometimes called “clear braces” — that uses the latest, advanced dental technology which not only straightens misaligned teeth but also ensures superior aesthetics and comfort.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an alternative to braces that are not only convenient but also virtually invisible. Like a retainer, your Invisalign provider creates aligners using a mould of your mouth. Once your new aligners are in place, they encourage your teeth to move to the desired position gradually. In approximately two weeks, your teeth will shift to fit the aligner. You’ll then begin wearing a new aligner that will encourage further improvements to your teeth’s positioning. You’ll continue to receive new aligners until your smile is perfect. In all, the Invisalign process takes approximately 7 to 20 months, and the cost is very reasonable.
Benefits of Invisalign
It’s no secret that Invisalign is one of the most popular options in Sydney for those in need of orthodontic treatment. Below are just a few reasons why Invisalign is so popular in Sydney:
Your aligners take up a tiny space in your mouth. They have no wires or rubber bands. They don’t scratch the insides of the lips. When you get your new aligners, it’s likely that you’ll eventually stop noticing them at all.
Unlike traditional braces, these clear aligners are nearly invisible. If you are concerned about how others would perceive you if you wore braces, Invisalign is the ideal alternative. From a distance, no one will see that you are wearing them.
Invisible aligners do not adhere to your teeth with glue like traditional braces. Provided that you wear the aligner for at least 22 hours each day, you can remove them whenever you like. Unlike traditional braces, which can make proper dental hygiene a little difficult, getting Invisalign will not hamper your brushing and flossing at all. Their cost is also very reasonable.
Our invisible aligners can easily be removed, hence they can easily be cleaned. This is important to maintain good oral hygiene.
Safe for Active Lifestyles
Your new aligners are popular among orthodontic patients who engage in contact sports. You can remove your aligner whenever you need to wear a mouth guard. Unlike traditional braces, there’s also a need to worry about scratching or cutting the inside of your mouth.
Treatment Process from the Invisalign website
Here is the process you need to go through when you decide to have your very first invisible aligners made:
Your first consultation with your Invisalign-trained Dental 266 dentist will include an explanation of how the process works and the period of time you need to wear your aligners. At this stage, your dentist will take x-rays or digital scans of your teeth for him to prepare your treatment plan.
Using your teeth’s digital scans, your dentist at Dental 266 will make a customised 3D treatment plan for you. This plan will indicate how your teeth will move within the time period specified in the plan, as well as how long the treatment will last.
Your dentist will receive your new clear aligners after they are manufactured and specially delivered to Dental 266’s clinic.
Frequently Asked Questions
Invisalign may be the best option for fixing your dental problems if you have minor to moderate alignment issues. These clear aligners can straighten overbites and underbites and misalign them due to crowding or incorrect spacing.
At Dental 266, we use advanced computer technology in our Burwood practice to show you your personalised animated videos so you will see what your teeth will look like at the completion of your Invisalign treatment, and create sets of perfectly fitted clear Invisalign aligners for you to change every two weeks.
When you get Invisalign, it’s important to remember that we can only straighten your dental misalignment if you diligently use the aligners. You’ll need to wear them for at least 22 hours every day. If you forget to wear them or simply lack the discipline to do them, the treatment will not deliver optimal results.
These clear aligners are not usually appropriate for very young children whose bones are still growing rapidly. It works best when the size of the jaw and skull remain consistent throughout treatment. For teens and preteens, Invisalign Teen is a solution category for kids aged 11-17 that provides a bit of room for growth during treatment.
Invisalign also isn’t appropriate for very severe dental misalignment. If it is necessary to rotate your premolars or canines or to correct a bite issue in the back teeth, getting orthodontic braces may be the more appropriate way to correct your dental problems. It also lacks the ability to change the vertical positioning of teeth.
One of the best parts of getting Invisalign is that the process of removing the aligner is so easy. Removing your new aligners is something you can do on your own. There’s no need to worry about having traditional braces removed with pliers, having glue buffed away, or feeling the sensitivity that often comes with exposing dental enamel for the first time after more than a year.
As with any other orthodontic treatments in Sydney, following completion, you will require to wear retainers to hold the nice straight teeth in place. We will make moulds of your mouth at our Burwood clinic and provide the retainers to you as soon as they’re available. The retainer prevents teeth from shifting and keeps your smile looking more radiant than ever.
The risk of the teeth shifting back into their original positions is greatest when you first complete your Invisalign treatment. For that reason, you’ll need to wear your retainer full-time for a few years. After the initial period of wearing a retainer consistently, you can switch to wearing the retainer only at night. We will tell you when you can eventually stop using the retainer. The more you wear them, the longer-lasting result will be!
One of the greatest aspects of getting Invisalign is that you don’t need to change anything about your regular dental hygiene routine. Since you can remove the aligners whenever you like, you can brush and floss as you normally do. Just make sure to care for your aligners, though, because they can become breeding grounds for bacteria if you don’t keep them clean. Since your Invisalign aligners fit very tightly, they could trap small food particles and lead to tooth decay.
Since your Invisalign aligners fit very tightly, they could trap small food particles and lead to tooth decay. Hence, it is highly recommended to brush and floss your teeth and clean your invisible aligners each time after eating.
You’ll need to keep these aligners clean, and we normally recommend using a toothbrush with a bit of toothpaste to brush the aligners inside and outside. Also, try to avoid bad habits such as leaving your aligners in a napkin when you eat. Before you know it, your aligners may end up in the trash bins.
