“It’s extremely popular among adult patients because the appliance is clear and virtually non-obtrusive during normal daily life. Invisalign can also be removed for eating and cleaning teeth.”
Dr David Vautin
Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic method using clear aligners to balance and straighten your smile. Unlike traditional braces, no one will even know you are undergoing treatment. If you are suitable for Invisalign a series of invisible, removable aligners will be formulated by 3D scanning technology, and created for the entire course of treatment. Our dental professionals here at Instyle Orthodontics offer Invisalign from our Maroochydore practice, servicing our patients from Mooloolaba, Coolum Beach, Kuluin, Buddina, Maroochydore and the surrounding areas.
The 3D scanning technology that is used to create your treatment is also the same technology that can show you the series of movements your teeth will go through over the course of the treatment. Your custom made and fitted aligners will be replaced every two weeks with new aligners until the desired position is reached.
For your convenience, Dr Vautin can provide you with a number of aligners so that you only have to visit us every six weeks. However, this will depend on the complexity of your case which will also determine the duration of your treatment. Treatments can last anywhere from 12-24 months.
Invisalign invisible aligners are a series of clear aligners that gradually straighten your teeth over a prescribed amount of time. During your Invisalign treatment you will notice a number of advantages over traditional braces.
As the Invisalign aligners are clear, they are virtually unnoticeable to those around you.
The clear aligners mean no metal brackets or wires obstructing your smile.
Being removable is advantageous because it means that one; you can remove them to eat without worrying about getting anything stuck in wires and brackets; and two, you can brush and floss your teeth as normal. However, you must brush your teeth before you place your aligners back in.
The practical advantage of Invisalign over traditional forms of orthodontic treatment means that you can maintain your oral health which means fewer visits to the dentist during your treatment. It also means that because you won’t have brackets bonded to your teeth, there won’t be stains around where the brackets were.
Due to the fact that Invisalign is removable you are required wear it as often as your orthodontist has recommended. Failure to do so will result in one of two things: either the treatment will take longer to complete or the treatment will not be as effective as it could be.
