When you are an adult who has misaligned teeth, it can create a serious dent in your confidence.
And, if you are a working adult, it can make a potential dent in your career; studies have found that people who have perfectly aligned teeth are taken more seriously by their bosses and are seen as more trustworthy by clients and customers. Yikes!
Is there a way to straighten teeth in 2021 without having to use the traditional metal brace? Yes, there is!
When you join our team at Kooringal Dental, we may be able to provide you with a clear or invisible brace or aligner to straighten your smile, such as Invisalign in Wagga. This aligner is, as the name suggests, invisible for the most part and uses custom-fitting aligners and computer technology to gently push your teeth into the desired position. Perfect!
Are there any other advantages to using Invisalign in Wagga to realign your smile?
As mentioned before, Invisalign in Wagga utilises custom-fitting and computer technology to move your teeth.
Unlike traditional braces which use force (or tightening) to move teeth, this invisible aligner gently pushes your teeth into their new positions and, once that aligner feels loose, you simply move onto the next one that we have provided for you. And so, with less force comes more comfort.
Who doesn’t want to use a removable orthodontic appliance?
This invisible aligner can be taken out to brush your teeth, eat food or attend dental check-ups. But, we must advise you to keep the brace in for the required time per day as set down by our team to see the benefits of the aligner, usually 22 hours.
If you fail to adhere to keeping the aligner in your mouth, you will see a slowing of your realignment and we may need to use a fitted brace to obtain the results you are looking for.
Many people remember that kid in high school who wore metal braces for months on end.
Luckily, with this invisible aligner, the average treatment time is much shorter (between 3-6 month) but will vary depending on the severity of the misalignment.
Remember, you must keep these aligners in to see an accelerated treatment time!
One thing many patients worry about when they look into invisible braces or aligners is the price.
However, with Kooringal dental, our team may be able to offer you financing options to spread the cost of your treatment. Not only that but when you compare the cost of any orthodontic treatment to the cost of issues it prevents (hygienist visits, cavities), it works out as more cost-effective!
Lastly, this invisible aligner can create some truly spectacular results; we have used it to straighten overbites, underbites, crowding and spacing, all with the same results.
Like traditional braces, the results are long-lasting, with nearly all patients who have used this aligner reporting no relapsing of teeth or unwanted movements 5 years post-treatment.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
