We will always try to find the right solution to straighten your teeth and give you the smile you’ve always wanted, as you’ll find at your first appointment for Invisalign Wagga. Many adults prefer this method of orthodontic treatment because Invisalign, being a clear aligner, is very discreet. In fact, it’s practically invisible when worn and unnoticeable to those around you. This clear aligner technology is typically available on a payment plan which makes it an affordable choice for orthodontics, as you can fit it into a monthly budget instead of having to pay it all at once, which is often a better option for young adults starting out in the world.
Why straighten your teeth?
We live in a world that is obsessed with image, how you present yourself online has become as important as how you present yourself in the workplace and with so many people improving their look with everything from injectables to orthodontics it’s important for many to keep up with everyone else. But why is that? Well, psychological studies have suggested that it is all to do with perception and that all-important first impression. It was found that those with straight bright white teeth were perceived to be luckier in love and social life as well as more successful in the professional world than those with crooked and stained teeth. Of course, societal perceptions are just that, perceptions, but we can’t change the way people think so we change our bodies instead and when it comes to teeth, this is easy to do with Invisalign Wagga.
How it works
Invisalign strategically pushes the teeth into position using a new, clear aligner every 1-2 weeks . At your first appointment for Invisalign Wagga we’ll take photos and X-rays of your teeth in order to build a profile for you. We will conduct a scan of your mouth which then creates a 3D digital model of your teeth on the computer, which means that you don’t have to go through the discomfort of producing a mould often used for other types of orthodontic appliances which can be more invasive.
Once all this data is collected we send it off to a lab where they will create your first set of aligners. These will be sent to you so that you can keep control of your treatment at home, you will be instructed how to wear them and when to change them so that you know which aligner to put in and when.
Each person is different so each length of treatment time will be different too, most people see treatment completed in about 6 months while some more challenging cases shouldn’t take longer than 9 months.
The Invisalign clear aligners are removable which means that people can eat whatever they like and pop them back in after cleaning. The Invisalign invisible aligners need to be worn at least 20-22 hours a day, but that frees up enough time for meals as well as the occasional sporting activity should you need to remove them for a gum guard or comfort in activities like public speaking.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
