Has smiling ever given you reason to cover your mouth with your hand? Do you feel a lack of confidence because your teeth are crooked and you don’t want to spend years having unsightly and uncomfortable metal braces in your mouth? Well, we at Healthview want to change that and help give you the smile you deserve so that you can smile at the world with a new and transformed set of teeth with Invisalign in Corio, Geelong.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is the new kid on the block when it comes to orthodontics, and it has been giving more and more people straighter smiles in less time than it takes for traditional braces to work and with less discomfort as well. Traditional braces incorporate the use of metal brackets which are glued to the front of the teeth often causing cuts and mild scarring on the inside of the cheeks, a metal wire connects these brackets and is set at a different tension each month in order to pull the teeth into position. This treatment can take up to two years and for many adults that is much too long to have metal glinting in the mouth.
With Invisalign in Corio, Geelong you get all of the benefits of braces with far fewer of the issues with traditional braces. Results have been seen in as little as 4 months while the average case usually takes under 9 months and the best part is, the treatment is just about invisible. Clear aligners are used to gently push the teeth into position over time and no one will even be aware that you are undergoing treatment.
Invisalign aligners can fit into any lifestyle, whether it be corporate or active and sporty, as the aligners are completely removable. This means you can take them out to enjoy whichever foods you would normally eat and you can ensure that they are properly cleaned as well. So different from traditional braces!
How it works?
Using new and advanced 3D imaging technology, we will take a scan of your mouth, this is completely painless and not nearly as uncomfortable as using a mold to cast the shape of your teeth. This digital scan is imported onto a computer which shows a 3D model of your teeth and jaw, the computer also analyses this model to calculate exactly how your teeth will move over time and how long treatment can be expected to take. This information is then sent to a lab where a set of custom clear aligners are created for you. You will receive the full set of aligners for the course of the treatment which you can change yourself at home so there will be no need to constantly visit your dentist for adjustments. These aligners need to be changed every 1-2 weeks as your treatment progresses.
What does it fix?
Not only does Invisalign in Corio, Geelong fix crooked and overcrowded teeth but it can also fix any gaps you may have as well as correct malocclusions (problems with the bite) like an overbite, underbite, and crossbite.
