Living with misaligned teeth may cause embarrassment and it can take a toll on confidence and self-esteem. Many patients do not like the idea of wearing traditional braces, and thus avoid having their teeth straightened. Invisalign is a great solution for patients interested in aligning their teeth discreetly.
Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners instead of metal brackets and wires. The aligners are custom-fitted and virtually invisible, so no one can tell when patients are straightening their teeth. While they need to be worn at least 22 hours per day, the aligners are removed for eating, brushing and flossing.
How Do We Know If It's a Good Fit?
Invisalign works well for most patients; our dentists can determine whether it is an appropriate treatment on an individual basis after an exam and x-rays. Aligning teeth is about more than just improving the way a smile looks; it also benefits oral health, as teeth will be easier to brush and floss. With 3-D technology, we will even be able to show patients of our Darwin dental clinic what their newly aligned smiles will look like before starting treatment.
