Orthodontics - Traditional & Invisalign Treatment in Blackburn
ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT IN BLACKBURN BY INVISALIGN DENTIST
Orthodontic treatments make use of techniques that help dentists straighten or align the teeth of the patients. These treatments also help in correcting bite issues. There are two types of orthodontic treatments, namely traditional braces and Invisalign.
Traditional braces make use of metal wires to move the teeth and bring them to the ideal position.
A relatively new treatment for aligning the teeth is Invisalign. This modern method is ideal for moving and aligning teeth that are not too complicated.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is one of many clear aligner therapies available in Australia today. It consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable, clear aligners that needs to be changed every two weeks or so. Each aligner is manufactured to move and straighten teeth slowly until they reach the desired position.
A virtual treatment plan is generated by ClinCheck® software that allows you to see the series of movements caused by the aligners and gives an indication of what can be achieved and what is necessary.
Is it really clear?
It is mostly clear, though sometimes attachments are necessary to ensure efficient movement of teeth. These attachments are build-ups that are teeth coloured to reduce visual disturbance.
Why Invisalign Treatment?
It’s one of the first companies to produce clear alignments and continues to lead others in this field. Its pioneering research allows for faster and more precise movement of teeth, increasing comfort for patients.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Are there any disadvantages of Invisalign?
Not all cases are suitable for Invisalign. Your Invisalign dentist can determine this after a proper study is done. Also, the cost is often slightly higher than traditional braces as these patented aligners are custom made and need to be changed every two weeks, increasing material cost.
