Invisalign® Braces Provider Bentleigh East

sidebar-ask-dr-maratosIf you are unhappy with your crooked, misaligned teeth then there is an answer for you with orthodontics. Dr Maratos will provide you with a comprehensive assessment and refer you to an appropriate orthodontist if Invisalign is not an option.

The Process

First we will look carefully at the alignment of the jaw. It is very important to have the jaw functioning correctly before your teeth are straightened with orthodontics. Once the jaw is aligned correctly your teeth can be straightened with orthodontics or Invisalign. The process will be a gradual, subtle movement over a period of time (usually no less than 6 months).

Invisalign straightens your teeth with a series of clear, virtually invisible custom-moulded aligners.

Invisalign is the breakthrough technology, which lets you have the smile you’ve always wanted without the hassle of braces.

While traditional orthodontic treatments such as metal braces are an effective solution to straightening teeth they can impact a person’s confidence. Invisalign is a clear alternative to metal braces that are a lifestyle friendly orthodontic treatment.

The Clear Alternative to Metal Braces

By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth with results you’ll notice sooner than you might think. The course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into a straighter position step by step, until you have a more beautiful smile. Unlike braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and you can brush your teeth as usual.

There are a number of advantages to Invisalign being removable.

1. It doesn’t impact diet:

Since Invisalign is a removable orthodontic treatment you can eat and drink normally. However, it is important to brush your teeth before replacing your aligners.

2. It doesn’t impact oral hygiene:

Unlike traditional braces that restrict your diet and your ability to clean your teeth, Invisalign allows you to keep your teeth and gums clean with regular brushing and flossing.

3. It is comfortable:

Invisalign is a series of clear removable aligners: that means no wires, brackets or bands to rub up against your cheeks and lips.

Less Treatment Time

An average Invisalign course of treatment takes around a year. You’ll see your Invisalign accredited Orthodontist or Dentist every 6 to 8 weeks for adjustments and to check progress. At regular intervals you’ll receive a new set of custom-moulded clear aligners to continue the straightening process. The total number of clear aligners is specific to you, determined by your dentist for your course of treatment.

Clear and Comfortable

Since Invisalign is practically invisible, there’s no unwarranted attention to your mouth. In fact, very few people will notice at all – unless you tell them. They’re comfortable to wear and remove easily when you eat, brush, and floss.

Your Compliance

As previously mentioned, there are a lot of advantages to Invisalign being removable. However, being removable also means that the treatment requires your compliance for it to be as effective as possible. Failure to wear the aligners as often as your dentist has indicated can result in the treatment either taking longer and/or it not being as effective as it could be.
