Using advanced 3-D computer-imaging technology, Invisalign is a modern teeth-straightening system that has helped over 4 million patients worldwide attain straight and beautiful teeth. The sophisticated technology assists the dentist in mapping out a complete treatment plan and produces a series of clear braces, known as aligners, that conform to your individual teeth size, contours and measurements.
Worn over your teeth, the Invisalign aligners are designed to gradually move your teeth from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. These custom-made aligners are made from thermoplastic material that does not irritate your gums or soft tissue in the mouth.
Not only are the aligners less painful to wear than traditional braces, they are barely noticeable on your teeth. This allows you to wear these braces on social and professional events with the confidence that no one will notice that you are undergoing dental treatment.
Another major benefit of undergoing the straightening treatment with aligners, as compared to traditional metal braces, is that they are removable. This makes it possible for Invisalign users to remove the aligner during meal times and for cleaning their teeth, thereby improving their oral hygiene with minimal disruption to their health and lifestyle.
At Melbourne Dentist Clinic, our team of highly experienced dentists are trained to use this advanced system to achieve predictable, safe and beautiful outcomes in as short a duration as possible – for mild cases, it takes as short as 6 months to complete the treatment!
Using advanced 3D imaging models, precise CAD/CAM construction and quality materials, our aligners are designed to achieve optimal results with minimal pain and adjustments, so that all you have to do is look forward to a comfortable, fast and successful treatment.
What to expect
The Invisalign process typically begins with an initial consultation during which the dentist would answer any questions you may have regarding the procedure or things to take note in post-treatment. At the same appointment, the dentist will take impression moulds of your teeth, a painless procedure although slightly uncomfortable for some, as it involves placing the impression material in your mouth. However, the moulds are very useful as they provide a sort of blueprint, upon which your 3D model (used extensively in the treatment plan) would be based and from which the precise measurements of your custom-made aligners are derived.
After your aligners have been fabricated at a dental lab, you will receive a series of these aligners in a package, along with the instruction on how long to wear them and how often to replace them. Typically, each aligner is to be worn for about two weeks before you are required to replace it with a new one in the series. You should also keep the aligner on your teeth for at least 22 hours each day, only removing them for eating, brushing and flossing.
