A neatly aligned smile is very important for a number of different reasons. Not only does it affect your self-esteem but a beautiful straight smile affects the way people see you. Surveys across the world show that healthy, white, straight teeth are key for looking attractive, whilst decayed, stained teeth or crooked, wonky teeth are a major turn off. Misalignment issues of the teeth can affect the appearance of your face and they affect your dental health. Those with crooked or wonky teeth are more prone to dental health issues such as cavities and tooth decay. Those with misaligned teeth are also more likely to lose their teeth than those with a neatly aligned smile.
Many patients did not undergo tooth straightening when they were younger to avoid drawing further attention to their teeth, however, thanks to advances in dental technology and the introduction and establishment of invisible forms of orthodontic treatment, more and more people than ever before are undergoing teeth straightening.
How does Invisalign work?
Here at Kooringal Dental teeth straightening is easier than ever before with Invisalign Wagga. Invisalign is one of the most popular methods of straightening teeth. Invisalign Wagga uses clear thermoplastic aligners to replace traditional wires and brackets for creating a neatly aligned smile. Invisalign Wagga as the name suggests is an almost invisible method of teeth straightening, which means you can undergo dental treatment without drawing further attention to your mouth. The aligners are digitally designed and manufactured and work as a sequence to apply gradual pressure on your teeth until they create a neat formation. According to the extent of dental realignment needed the number of aligners that you require will differ, however, the average treatment time with Invisalign is between 6 and 12 months. This is shorter than traditional orthodontic treatment, yet you can still achieve excellent aesthetic results.
Invisalign vs traditional braces
The difference between Invisalign and traditional orthodontic treatment is that Invisalign is more suited for mild or moderate orthodontic issues, whereas traditional orthodontic braces can address complex cases. We will carry out a smile assessment to identify the factors that are affecting the alignment of your teeth and this will also help us decide if Invisalign is the best solution for you.
Invisalign has many different advantages including the discretion that they offer. Invisalign aligners are removable and therefore they fit into your lifestyle rather than you having to work around them. You are able to enjoy all your favourite food and drink which is not always the case with traditional orthodontic braces. Metal braces can also be affected by certain food and drink. You may get food stuck in between the wires and brackets or you may damage your braces if you are not careful. Another great advantage is that Invisalign aligners help you maintain excellent dental hygiene, as you take your aligners out to brush and floss your teeth. To find out more about the advantages of Invisalign and how you can improve the appearance and health of your teeth, you need to speak to us at Kooringal Dental and book a smile assessment very soon.
