You walk into a room and see someone you once knew at school. They greet you with a wide smile, oozing Hollywood charm and bonhomie. However, your face doesn’t reflect their emotion; you panic, grimace and hope they don’t look too closely at your mouth. What should be a joyous occasion has yet again become an anxious one for you and you wish that you could do something about your misaligned teeth; it feels as though you should have got it sorted out when you were in school, but that’s been and gone. If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone in suffering this way. At Kooringal Dental, we’re here to help you realise that getting a realigned smile, whatever your age, is achievable if you are suitable for our treatment options. What’s more, with Invisalign Wagga, we can help you realign your smile in a discreet, convenient and comfortable way.
What is Invisalign Wagga?
Invisalign is a system that consists of clear aligners that are made of plastic. When they are worn over your teeth, only your teeth should be visible and so they offer a discreet way of realigning them. The aligners are changed on a weekly basis and each set applies a different amount of pressure to the teeth to move them into their desired position. Treatment takes just 6 to 18 months on average, and you will only need to come and see us for a check-up every 6 weeks, during which time we will provide you with a 6 week batch of aligners to take home with you.
Why should I consider choosing Invisalign?
If you have mild to moderate alignment issues, Invisalign could be the key to the problem and if you do choose this treatment option, there are many reasons to celebrate doing so. Firstly, Invisalign’s aligners are made bespoke for your mouth using iTero technology; it’s a digital scan that is used to get the precise measurements of your mouth for your aligners to be manufactured to. When worn, the aligners should therefore provide the maximum possible comfort. With this scan, our dentist will also be able to generate a 3D animation of what your teeth will look like after treatment, before you have even got started and this could be the inspiration you need to get excited about having Invisalign!
Another benefit of Invisalign is the fact that the aligners may be removed when you are eating and drinking. Allowing you to avoid having to clear up masticated food from your aligners, because you don’t have to eat with them in your mouth. You can also brush and floss without them in your mouth, so you can keep up with your oral hygiene routine unimpeded. In fact, you can take your aligners out for up to 2 hours a day, which means that you can have a break from them when you want to play sports, meet up with friends or just relax and unwind with a movie – the choice is yours!
Is Invisalign right for me?
To determine whether or not Invisalign Wagga would be a suitable treatment for you, you will need to book in for an initial consultation with us at Kooringal Dental. We will examine your mouth and may take X-rays to determine what your alignment issues are. We will then be able to discuss the treatment options that are right for your specific needs, which is what we pride ourselves in doing for all of our patients. If you are able to opt for Invisalign, within 6 to 18 months on average, you could have an improved smile to display to everyone you meet.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
