Invisalign is a relatively new cosmetic dentistry technology in Australia, and has been strongly growing among Melbourne dentists over the past few years. Invisalign popularity is the result of its effectiveness and convenience.
Invisalign is a teeth straightening appliance that offers an alternative to teeth correction to those who are considering braces but prefer a solution that is not visible. Think of Invisalign as invisible braces. In that, others will not even recognise that you are wearing a teeth straightening appliance.
The Invisalign Teeth Straightening Concept.
This appliance has the same effect as braces in the sense that it corrects the teeth alignment and positioning — straightening — by adding gentle pressure on the teeth in the direction that achieves alignment. Each tooth is corrected by following the Invisalign appliance that sits behind the teeth and is therefore invisible. The procedure is based on the teeth conforming to the teeth straightening template designed and made for each patient and based on their teeth scan.
The Invisalign appliances are made in sets that are used over the entire time estimated for the teeth straightening process by our dentists or orthodontists. Essentially, the patient receives a set of Invisalign appliances marked as a sequence and are used one after the other gradually pushing the teeth into alignment. In most cases, each appliance is used for approximately two week before it is discarded and replaced by the next appliance in the correction sequence. The patient often removes and applies the appliance. Bit by bit, week after week, the teeth straighten and the over-all look of your smile improves until the teeth are as perfectly straight as possible. This puts Invisalign within the cosmetic dentistry branch, yet, improves your dental health as it achieves straighter teeth which reduces potential dental and oral problems.
The making of Invisalign.
The first step to receive this treatment is to visit our dentists to have an oral and dental examination which would reveal the requirement for teeth straightening where necessary. Our dentists will then provide you with all of your option including Invisalign. The patient is then assessed for suitability for this treatment. In most cases, patients who are suited for braces can be also treated with Invisalign.
To initiate the process of preparing the treatment, our dentists or orthodontists will perform a complete scan of your teeth and mouth using the most advanced imaging and scanning technology producing accurate impression of your teeth positioning and alignment. Our orthodontists then examine the results and prepare a plan for teeth straightening illustrating the stages and progress to be expected from applying the Invisalign treatment. The sequential Invisalign braces will be made based on this plan. The scan is then sent to the lab for the Invisialign to be made specifically for the relevant patient. The orthodontist examines the lab’s 3D proto of the appliance and gives the final approval for the production of the complete sent.
Our dentists will discuss the use of Invisalign with you and coach you as to the proper application and removal on the appliance.
Patients using the Invisalign treatment are required to attend a periodical assessment once every two to three months. Our dentists will, during the assessment, evaluate the progress of the teeth straightening and ensure that the progress is inline with the dental treatment plan.
Invisalign improves your health.
In addition to its cosmetic benefits, this treatment works to correct the positioning of your teeth which improves function and comfort. Like other forms of braces, the use of this treatment gradually eliminates problems like misaligned biting or over-bite, cross bite, difficulty chewing or swallowing as well as teeth grinding. This means lesser dental problems that may lead to loose teeth, pain, fillings or extraction.
Benefits of Invisalign include:
Removable – eat, drink, brush and floss the same as you would normally to maintain optimum hygiene.
Comfortable- with no brackets, metal, bands or wires the experience is virtually pain-free.
Less time in the dentist chair.
