Do you want a straighter smile? A 2017 survey from Orthodontics Australia showed that 55% of Australians felt self-conscious about their teeth, and 62% would like to do something about their crooked smiles.
There are a number of benefits to choosing Invisalign as your method to straighten your teeth, especially if you’re trying to avoid braces. But first, let’s look at exactly what Invisalign is.
A cosmetic alternative to fixed braces, Invisalign is a great option for adults who want straight teeth but are conscious of the appearance of traditional braces.
Using innovative SMARTForce Technology, Invisalign is a series of removable clear aligners that are custom-made for your mouth. By using virtually-invisible plastic aligners, your teeth will gradually move to the ideal position, giving you a beautiful, straight smile.
The aligners are changed over roughly every two weeks, to keep up with your changing smile. Treatment time will vary depending on the person, with first results being seen a few months in.
These are the main benefits to choosing Invisalign over other teeth straightening methods:
Unlike braces, Invisalign is practically invisible. The aligners are clear, so they won’t distract from your face or smile, or show up in photos. Say cheese!
There are no metal brackets or sharp, extruding edges to aggravate or rub on the inside of your mouth. As Invisalign is custom-made for your teeth and mouth, it will be much more comfortable to wear.
Easy to remove
One of the greatest challenges of braces is the restrictions on the kind of foods you can eat. With Invisalign, the aligners are simple and easy to remove, so you won’t have to miss out on your favourite foods!
Easy to maintain dental health
When it’s time to brush and floss your teeth, simply remove your aligner tray and brush and floss as usual! The trays themselves are also easy to clean – just give them a rinse and brush with your toothbrush.
As well as straightening teeth, Invisalign can help with underbites, overbites, gaps, crowded teeth and open bites.
