It’s been a very long time since I’d last blogged. With the endless summer finally out of the way, easter bunny having already made a visit, we’re well and truly staring down the middle of 2012! One hot topic that patients have been enquiring about this year has been on “straightening teeth without braces”.
Invisalign is a teeth straightening system developed to take the fuss or embarrassment out of braces. It works by a series of clear aligners that fit perfectly around your teeth to gradually correct and bring your teeth into an ideal smile. There are no metal wires or brackets, so no need to worry about mouth irritations, as the aligners are comfortable to wear and can be easily removed for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.
If it weren’t for the remarkable way Invisalign transforms smiles, you’d hardly even notice you’re having treatment. As the Invisalign aligners are transparent and difficult to detect when worn, they allow you to straighten your teeth without feeling self-conscious – and should you have an important meeting or event coming up that’s causing concern, you can always remove the aligners for that short space of time.
Treatment usually takes about 1-2 years (similar time to standard braces) at a similar cost. As each case is different it is difficult to quote an exact price for the treatment.
I could blog on forever about the benefits of Invisalign, but it is best to visit their website at http://www.invisalign.com.au – a great resource that will most likely have answers to your questions. Alternatively you can contact our clinic at (07) 33419770 or email me directly at [email protected] and I will do the best I can to get back to you soon!
