Invisalign is a great solution for late teens and adults looking for a discrete option. Straightening your teeth with Invisalign involves wearing a series of clear aligners. Invisalign clear aligners are removable and hardly noticeable in your mouth. This means you can achieve an amazing straight smile, without hindering your personal or professional life.
Dana Street Dental is an accredited Invisalign dentist in Ballarat. We have helped many patients transform their smile through this convenient orthodontic treatment.
The Benefits of Invisalign
With the Invisalign treatment comes a range of benefits. So, it’s no surprise that it is one of the most popular orthodontic treatments around. When patients turn to us for Invisalign treatment, in particular, it’s often because of one or more of the following reasons:
How the Invisalign Treatment Works
The Invisalign system works by gradually moving your teeth to their desired position. It does this through a series of clear aligners that are custom-made for your mouth and your straightening journey. No two smiles are the same, so your Invisalign journey will be specifically mapped out for you. The process for doing so makes use of our amazing 3D intra oral scanning technology paired with known responses for how teeth move.
Your virtual treatment plan identifies how your teeth are anticipated to move during your treatment. How your teeth actually move during your treatment will be cross-checked with the predictions to ensure a great final result.
You’ll wear each set of clear aligners throughout your Invisalign treatment for around two weeks before progressing to a new set, encouraging the next phase of the movement. Your dentist will monitor your Invisalign journey through a rough 6 weekly follow up schedule. During these appointments, they will also provide you with your next lot of aligners.
Treatment times vary from one patient to another. However, the average Invisalign treatment is 6 to 18 months of wearing your aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day.
