The Benefits of Straight Teeth

Straight teeth may make you feel more confident and ready to laugh and joke with your best mates—no more covering your smile. And straight teeth also play a role in your oral health.

Your Katoomba dentist offers Invisalign clear aligners to bring your teeth in line.

Straight Teeth for a Healthier Smile

Some patients think that straight teeth and an aligned bite are merely cosmetic, but this may not be the case.

Bite alignment plays a key role in your long-term oral health. When your bite is misaligned, individual teeth do the majority of the chewing, which leads to wear. Wear may promote cavities, root infections and even tooth fractures in the future.

Additionally, when teeth overlap, it is difficult to brush and floss efficiently—there are too many nooks for debris to hide and collect. Over time, this can mean tooth decay.

Invisalign in Katoomba, NSW

Your dentist evaluates you for Invisalign—making sure that the system will correct your alignment and straighten your teeth. We then discuss the results with you to help you determine whether Invisalign is the right option.

If you decide on Invisalign, we take impressions of your teeth, and the Invisalign people create your custom aligners. You switch aligners every few weeks until you’ve exhausted your supply. This means treatment is complete. The process can take up to 24 months, depending on your situation. Your dentist will discuss this with you before starting treatment.

The benefits of Invisalign during treatment include:

  • Discreet therapy with clear aligners
  • Ability to remove aligners while eating and cleaning your teeth
  • Smooth plastic designed to feel more comfortable in the mouth
