√ Virtually Invisible
Clear Aligners, such as Invisalign or Clarity, are a modern approach to invisible braces. Using a series of comfortable clear plastic aligners, you can straighten your teeth and create that perfect smile you’ve always wanted.
Your first consultation visit will be for your orthodontist to assess your bite and smile for irregularities and abnormalities. Your orthodontist will then discuss options for your treatment including all forms of traditional braces, both metal and clear, as well as clear aligners. Your orthodontist will take digital x-rays, photographs and 3D scans of your teeth in order to formulate an individually-tailored treatment plan. No longer are dental impressions required! These records are compiled and using advanced technology we can map out your treatment for you in front of your eyes. This includes a visual representation of how your teeth will move during treatment and how long treatment will likely take.
Based on your tailor-made treatment plan, a series of aligners are then created specifically for you. Each new aligner is inserted approximately fortnightly. This is to ensure stable and gradual tooth movement whilst minimising discomfort. You should aim to wear your aligners for 22 out of every 24 hours.
This way you can take them out to eat and you don’t need to worry about any dietary restrictions or limitations. You can also keep your oral hygiene standards high by brushing and flossing daily without brackets getting in the way. We recommend your returning every six weeks so your orthodontist can track your treatment, making sure everything is happening as it should.
