Invisalign®: Invisible Braces That Don’t Get In the Way
Our team consists of trained dental professionals as well as an experienced and friendly support staff, making Mawson Lakes Dental the top Invisalign® orthodontist choice in Adelaide.
When you visit our dental practice, we will give you an initial consultation where we will discuss your teeth and the results you’re hoping for. We will only recommend treatments that are suitable for you and if Invisalign® is the right fit, we’ll set up a detailed and customised treatment plan.
We will then take impressions of your teeth for our records, also sending them to the Invisalign® labs for processing and analysis. These impressions allow us to create a 3D image of your teeth which is used to create your invisible braces.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
The Invisalign® treatment consists of near-invisible removable aligners that are worn by our patients on a daily basis. Each treatment cycle lasts two weeks, after which you get a brand new set. You’ll always receive aligners that have been specifically manufactured to your teeth and bite.
Every time an aligner is replaced, your teeth will move ever so slightly as a result of the new configuration. Over time, the final position as agreed during your initial consultation will be reached. The entire process is monitored by Align Technology’s ClinCheck® software programme, meaning results are always optimal and precisely calculated.
Benefits of Invisalign® Treatment
Other than providing stellar results, the Invisalign® treatment also provides a wide range of additional benefits:
- Customised: Each set is made just for you.
- Removable: Unlike braces, our aligners can be removed. This means you have absolutely no food restrictions!
- Comfortable: The wires you’re used to seeing with traditional braces are uncomfortable and irritate the gums. Invisalign®, on the other hand, gives you a comfortable and pain free experience.
- Clear: The aligners are almost invisible, so no need to worry about unsightly braces. People won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth!
Invisalign® Treatment Guidelines
It’s important that you wear your Invisalign® aligners both during the day and night. The only instances where they should be removed are when eating, brushing or flossing your teeth. It’s important you follow the instructions given by your dentist in order to achieve the results you’re looking for.
How Long Does the Treatment Last?
Considering that each individual patient is carefully analysed for their specific case, it would be impossible to give a blanket duration period for your treatment. However, the average full treatment lasts approximately 9-18 months. This is the equivalent of 18-36 aligners for both your upper and lower teeth.
