If you didn’t have braces as an adolescent or teenager, you might be feeling self-conscious about your misaligned teeth as an adult. But perhaps you are not prepared to undergo traditional braces and the metal wires and brackets that go along with them. There’s good news for you: Invisible braces might just be the answer.

To find out for sure whether you are a good candidate for invisible braces, it’s a good idea to consult your dentists at Casuarina Square Dental Care. Read on for more information.

Clear Aligners Fit the Adult Lifestyle in Darwin

For both professional and social reasons, many adults do not want to have their smiles marred with metal during treatment. With invisible braces, however, few people will realise you are straightening your teeth. The clear plastic aligners are virtually undetectable—even when someone is seated across the table from you.

Treatment is quicker with invisible braces as well, with treatment times averaging anywhere from six to 18 months.

Because the aligners are removable, it is easier to care for your teeth because you can brush and floss normally. You take them out for eating, so none of your favourite foods are off-limits.

Many people do not realise that having straight teeth is more than just having a beautiful smile; an aligned smile is a healthier smile because straight teeth are easier to care for. Flossing and brushing can be done more effectively, and straight teeth mean there are fewer opportunities for plaque and decay to build up in crevices within the teeth.

You Don’t Have to Live with Misaligned Teeth

We invite you to call our Darwin clinic to book a consult to see if invisible braces can give you the smile you should have been born with. We look forward to welcoming you.
