We are an Invisalign Platinum Elite Provider
Braces today play a very important role in helping align and straighten their teeth. They are designed to fix a variety of issues including crowded or crooked teeth. They are able to make this possible basing from its structure and form allowing them to apply a good amount of pressure to various parts of the wearer’s mouth. With the help of modern technology, today’s braces have become better than ever using enhanced materials resulting to fewer needed adjustments. Many however, consider traditional braces to be outdated with their features being quite limited in scope. This became especially true with the introduction of Invisalign. Let us look at what sets Invisalign braces apart from your traditional braces.
Invisalign is a set of clear aligners that are a hard plastic form of braces used as an orthodontic treatment to adjust teeth. The treatment can vary from 6 months to 18 months depending on the position of your teeth.
Invisalign aligns the teeth by using a series of customised moulds that apply pressure and force your teeth to shift into their new and desired positions. Typically you will need to change your set of aligners to a new set every 1 to 2 weeks for your teeth to keep gradually shifting.
Invisalign provides a slew of benefits that are not present with your standard braces. Visual aesthetic is something that you can find with Invisalign in Sydney.
The thermoplastic material which they are made of allows them to properly take the shape and form of your teeth for a perfect fit. Invisalign also has a natural clear colour which makes them harder to detect by human eye.
This in turn makes it possible for people to wear Invisalign all throughout the day without others noticing them.
It should be noted that conventional braces often comes with a bunch of metal brackets and wires that can make them quite uncomfortable to wear. Aside from that, these metal wires can also pose a threat to your inner cheeks, lips, and gums.
They may feel sore for having been in contact with the metal brackets and wires which can result to issues such as soft tissue injury and canker sores. Allergies are also a very popular reaction people get when wearing metal braces for the very first time.
Aside from that, there is also a risk of metal wires to break especially when consuming hard foods such as nuts, candies and ice cubes. Accidental breakage of wires may occur which can lead to the wires poking inside your mouth causing cuts and bleeding.
The issues mentioned above with metal braces are mostly non-existent with invisible braces in Sydney. As mentioned earlier, Invisalign is made of thermoplastic material making them perfectly safe to wear at all times.
Allergic reactions as well as some unnecessary bruises are also not present since these clear braces are not sharp as it does not have any metal substance in their compound. Invisalign can also be easily removed when compared to your traditional braces.
This makes it possible for people to enjoy a variety of food and drinks since they can remove their clear braces when eating and drinking. This in turn helps protect the integrity of your Invisalign braces which allows them to last for a considerable period of time.
It is good to hear that Invisalign is covered by most dental insurance companies in the present. As a result, people will be able to save a fair amount of resources giving them more opportunities to try them out themselves.
Invisalign can be used for a variety of purposes including crowding and spacing issues and mild moderate bite issues. It is a good option for you if you don’t have a complicated bite or crowding complications.
Not only will you be able to achieve a straight, aesthetic smile, correctly aligned teeth will also reduce the complications resulting from an improper bite, speech, chewing difficulties, jaw issues and increased wear on the outer layer of the tooth.
