Many people believe that a straight smile is merely a cosmetic issue. They believe that straight teeth will improve their confidence and promote an easy laugh. While these things may be true, straight teeth also contribute to better oral health.
All about Invisalign in Katoomba
Invisalign starts with a consultation in our dental clinic. Your Katoomba dentist wants to learn more about your goals, and be sure that Invisalign will help you reach them.
If it’s determined that Invisalign is a good option for you, we arrange your impressions appointment and make a direct model of your smile. The Invisalign lab uses our model to fabricate clear aligners that work specifically for your needs.
You wear your aligner according to your dentist’s instructions, usually moving on to the next one every few weeks. As time passes, the aligners bring your teeth in line.
The Benefits of Invisalign
With Invisalign, you can remove your aligners to eat your meals and clean your teeth, which is not a benefit of traditional braces.
And after therapy, you can enjoy the benefits of straight teeth, which include an aligned bite that can reduce wear on your teeth, preventing fractures and cavities as a result.
Lined up teeth that do not overlap are also easier to clean effectively.
Invisalign clear aligners may correct:
- Crooked teeth
- Twisted teeth
- Overlapping teeth
- Oddly spaced teeth
- Bite alignment
After Invisalign Treatment
Your dentist creates a custom retainer for you. This device keeps your teeth in their new positions and guards against relapse or shifting.
