Advancements in dentistry have made it much easier for you to get your perfect smile. At Carrum Downs Dental Care we offer Invisalign treatments. Invisalign straightens your teeth while being virtually invisible, easily removable, and very comfortable.
The Invisalign retainers are a clear, smooth, durable plastic customised for your teeth and treatment. They need to be worn for 20-22 hours a day and are replaced with a new set every 2 weeks to keep your teeth moving slowly into position. There are many benefits of using Invisalign:
They Look Good
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign retainers are practically invisible! No one will notice your dental treatment unless you point it out to them.
Gone are the days of sharp corners and wires stabbing and scraping the inside of your mouth or placing wax on the corners just for it to fall off. Invisalign has no sharp corners or edges, so you’ll barely know they’re there.
You can remove Invisalign retainers for eating, brushing, and flossing your teeth. This means you can enjoy your food and don’t have to worry about the foods you eat damaging them.
They’re Easy To Clean
Because Invisalign is removable it makes them a snap to clean! Brush them with toothpaste and warm water. Rinse them out and reinsert into your mouth. Do make sure to not use too hot water to avoid damaging the plastic.
The Treatment Works Fast
It usually takes between six months and two years to achieve desired results with Invisalign. But you do start seeing the beginning of results within just a few weeks! Overall treatment time will depend on the complexity of the issue you’d like to address.
They’re Not Invasive
Anyone who’s had braces remembers the pain of having to take traditional impressions of your teeth with a mouthful of goo on a tray. But no longer! Advances in technology mean the process of detailing your teeth is much easier. For most treatments a 3D scanner will be used and translated into 3D prints that will be used to create your custom aligners.
You won’t have to visit the dentist as frequently as you think. You’ll only need to visit between every four to six weeks. Multiple sets of aligners are preplanned and supplied for you that need to be switched every two weeks.
They Fix Many Dental Issues
Invisalign can correct an array of different dental problems such as: Crowded Teeth, Overbite, Underbite, Gap Teeth, and Misaligned Teeth.
They Are Better Than Other Aligners
Invisalign has been available for quite some time now and the experience shows in the quality. Though Invisalign may cost more than at home kits, the dental monitoring from a professional is worth it. Regular dentist visits ensure the aligners are working and make sure no other issues arise.
