Invisalign burst onto the orthodontic scene in the 1990s and has since become a preferred method of straightening teeth.
But what makes Invisalign in Corio, Geelong different to other devices and what are the reasons for its popularity? Our staff at Heathview are the first to sing the praises of these braces. Read on to find out why!
Invisalign can solve various orthodontic issues
Whether you have gaps between your teeth, crooked teeth, or a malocclusion, Invisalign can repair the issue. Moreover, the Invisalign experience is more comfortable when compared to metal braces, because the pressure exerted on your teeth is lighter, and the threat of cuts and nicks is eradicated.
An improved appearance guaranteed
A shared complaint about metal braces is with regard to their looks, because while the designs of conventional models have improved drastically, they’re not nearly as subtle as Invisalign in Corio, Geelong.
The clear plastic of the Invisalign in Corio, Geelong aligner makes it nearly invisible, where onlookers can only identify it at close range. For self-conscious individuals who don’t like attention, Invisalign is an ideal straightening solution.
Easier to care for
Standard braces might be sufficient for teeth realignment, but they’re often deemed high maintenance by past wearers.
Another reason we love Invisalign is that the device is low maintenance. Wash the device after eating with warm water or purchase an Invisalign kit to keep it clean.
Because you can’t wear your plates while eating, you won’t have to worry about removing food that gets stuck in the metal of standard straightening aids.
You may get faster results
Depending on the age and the nature of your problem, treatment time might be significantly less for adults. However, this is not necessarily the case for children and adolescents who’ll have to undergo a similar treatment as if they were to select metal braces instead.
Individualised treatment programmes and accurate results
We use advanced software to not only track your progress, but also accurately predict your results from the outset. By using these technologies, we’re not relying on a trial and error process but on software that’s reliable, precise and convenient.
The experience of having impressions made of your teeth and jaw are much better than when compared to conventional means, where messy putty is placed in your mouth in an extremely invasive fashion. Instead several photographs are taken of your mouth using a wand-like device, rendering the experience pleasant and virtually non-intrusive.
Less pain, full gain
It would be false to say that you won’t experience any pain during your Invisalign journey, because there will be times where you’ll inevitably feel some form of discomfort, usually when you initially wear the device and when you change your aligners every two weeks.
However, you won’t have to experience the tenderness associated with having your wires fastened, nor the pain of a cut caused by metal rubbing on skin. Additionally, while there is pressure exerted by the aligners, it’s tolerable and lighter on your teeth, while remaining as good as conventional orthodontic devices.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
