If you are affected by malocclusion issues of the teeth then rest assured that you are not alone. The majority of the adult population suffer from a certain extent of misalignment of their teeth. Misalignment or malocclusion can affect the appearance of your smile and it affects your dental health. It affects your ability to brush your teeth thoroughly and it increases the likelihood of developing cavities, tooth decay and gum disease. If you have a crooked or wonky smile then this can diminish your self-esteem and it can impact your mental wellbeing.

Invisalign for teeth straightening
Here at the dental clinic we are pleased to be able to offer you Invisalign Wagga for straightening your teeth. Invisalign Wagga is a popular, modern method of teeth straightening that has helped millions of patients around the world, who may have previously avoided orthodontic treatment because they did not want to use traditional braces. Thanks to Invisalign Wagga you can address your misalignment issues at your discretion. You can undergo dental treatment and no one will even notice unless you wish to tell them. Invisalign aligners are invisible, as the name suggests. The system works using a series of clear thermoplastic aligners. When the aligners are placed over your teeth they are almost invisible and can only be detected by a trained eye.
How do Invisalign aligners work?
Invisalign has been designed to straighten your teeth within a short period of time. On average, Invisalign takes approximately 6 to 12 months to correct the alignment issues of teeth. You will notice changes in the alignment of your teeth from as early as 3 months and by visiting our dentist regularly throughout the process you can make sure that it is coming along successfully. Each aligner in the series needs to be worn for approximately 2 weeks and will move your teeth by 0.25 to 0.3 mm. After this the aligner stops working and you need to move onto the next aligner in the series. It is important that you comply with the protocol and remember to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours of the day for best results.
Once you reach the end of your treatment you can speak to our dentist and find out about Invisalign’s very own retainer system and this will help you maintain your newly aligned teeth and help you enjoy better dental health and a beautiful smile for the rest of your life.
