Are you looking for alternative solutions for misaligned or crooked teeth? While fixed metal braces are considered a common orthodontic treatment, you can also talk to your dentist about getting Invisalign fitted in Geelong.
Invisalign braces are clear dental aligners that are custom made using 3D technology. Like conventional braces, Invisalign is an orthodontic solution aimed at straightening your teeth progressively.
Below are some facts about Invisalign clear aligners for invisible braces in Geelong.
1) They’re almost invisible
Fixed braces comprise metal brackets bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth with wires threaded through or tied onto the brackets. Invisalign can be considered as an alternative as these braces are clear and difficult to detect.
2) Invisalign can be removed and cleaned
Invisalign aligners can be removed, allowing you to brush and floss in between your teeth. Dentists recommend that you keep them in place for 20-22 hours a day, which leaves you at least 2 hours in a day where you can take them off for eating, cleaning, and brushing your teeth, making it easy to go about your daily routine.
3) Less food restrictions
Being able to remove your Invisalign means that you can enjoy your meals without having any ‘restrictions’ in your mouth; this also means that you won’t be limited when it comes to what you can eat, as you could remove your Invisalign during mealtimes. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about certain types of food getting stuck to your braces or whether you are damaging them in any way.
4) Patient comfort
Invisalign clear aligners are comfortable as they are custom-made using 3D scanning of your teeth and Clincheck software, which simulates the movement of your teeth through the alignment process.
6) Reduced visits to the dentist
Many Invisalign patients visit the dentist once every 6 to 8 weeks for progress evaluation. Virtual monitoring is also available for patients travelling long distances.
