Invisalign Brisbane North, Wavell Heights, Clayfield

Invisalign is a proven method of orthodontic treatment that can help bring your teeth into alignment faster and with less discomfort than traditional braces. The treatment length will vary by each person’s situation, but on average Invisalign treatment is completed within one year. Invisalign is a popular choice around the world for dental improvements related to crowding, an excess spacing of teeth, and misalignment of the bite.

What Is Invisalign?

Invented in 1997 in California, Invisalign is most well-known for how inconspicuous it is. In addition to the cosmetic benefit this offers, Invisalign is a reliable product that moves teeth efficiently and predictably. Invisalign works by applying gradual pressure to your teeth with transparent aligners. These aligners are fully customised to your mouth, and are switched regularly to maximise your treatment progress.

Difference Between Invisalign and Traditional Braces

A considerable difference between Invisalign and traditional braces is that Invisalign aligners are completely removable. This allows substantial flexibility in your treatment. Should you be getting married or attending a special event, you may remove your aligners temporarily. Invisalign is also more subtle than traditional braces. The aligners are clear plastic and difficult to see. As a result, the treatment has little to no effect in the workplace and on your social life. From a financial perspective, Invisalign is a slightly greater investment than traditional braces. However, fewer follow-up appointments are typically required for Invisalign patients.

Invisalign vs Porcelain Veneers

 
Porcelain veneers are a treatment option to improve the appearance of teeth. They are thin, custom-made tooth coverings that are permanently bonded to your teeth. Depending on the number of porcelain veneers required, Invisalign is a similar investment. However, if your primary concern is tooth position and your teeth have good structure, we recommend repositioning your teeth rather than putting on porcelain veneers. Straightening your teeth will help your smile look fantastic, while keeping your natural, healthy teeth intact.

Who Can Use Invisalign

Most people are candidates for Invisalign, but you will need to come in for a thorough examination so we can evaluate your specific needs. Invisalign is a popular choice with patients of all ages and demographics.

Children and teenagers who may be uncertain about having metal braces put on their teeth are often more comfortable with Invisalign.

Adults who want their teeth straightened without wearing braces also choose Invisalign. Adults may have had braces in the past and are now experiencing shifting teeth, or they may not have had the opportunity for braces as children.

Invisalign is appropriate for patients of any age who are ready to have the smile they have always wanted.
