Invisalign at New Gisborne, Gisborne, Macedon & Riddells Creek

Invisalign is the preferred patient alternative to traditional braces to align teeth and improve a smile. Using clear trays called aligners, Invisalign will gently and discreetly move your teeth into their proper alignment without the discomfort that metal braces can sometimes bring. Our dentists at The Dental House in New Gisborne are experienced with the Invisalign technology and can ensure you get the results you deserve.

What is Invisalign and How Does it Work?

Invisalign is the latest technology to straighten teeth that are mildly crooked. Using a series of clear trays, each tray brings your teeth closer to their proper alignment. The trays are BPA-free plastic which are custom made for each patient, thanks to proprietary virtual modelling software that is unique to Invisalign.

When you choose Invisalign at The Dental House in New Gisborne, Gisborne, Macedon & Riddells Creek, you will get an initial appointment in which we collect information to plan your treatment. A series of custom trays will be created for you using this information, and each tray will be worn for 1-2 weeks before moving on to the next tray.

Each aligner tray moves your teeth closer to their ideal position. We also will set regular dental visits throughout your treatment so we can monitor your progress and make adjustments, if needed. The entire process is commonly 12 to 18 months, but each patient is unique so your treatment time may be shorter or longer. However, many patients begin to see results in just a matter of weeks!

Invisalign Technology

Patients prefer Invisalign for the clear comfort of the tray as well as technology that helps brings teeth into alignment without the fuss of metal braces. Three key elements make Invisalign unique:

SmartTrack material makes the trays comfortable while applying just the right amount of force to control the movement of teeth into alignment.

SmartStaging technology is used to ensure each tooth is strategically moved at the right time through the use of a series of trays.

SmartForce features include the right technology along with certain attachments that will deliver precision movements. Bite Ramps, Precision Cuts, and Power Ridge are all features that allow Invisalign to address a variety of patient concerns.

Straight Teeth are More Than Aesthetic

Teeth straightening is often associated with cosmetic dentistry, but having straight teeth also improves oral health. They are easier to clean and leave less risk for hidden cavities, decay, and gum infections. Because there are no hidden crevices, bad breath is more easily avoided. And straight teeth are easy to clean with brushing and flossing so you can worry less about other hidden dental problems.

Benefits of Invisalign

 
When you use Invisalign to straighten your teeth, you will also enjoy the benefits that come with Invisalign technology. Some of these include:

Improved comfort

Metal braces can sometimes scratch or puncture the soft tissue inside your mouth. But Invisalign trays are created with smooth plastic so there are no sharp edges or points. In addition, many patients enjoy that the aligner trays do not require tightening like traditional braces.

Less Treatment Time

Invisalign trays allow patients to begin seeing improvement in weeks, while total treatment time is 12 to 18 months, on average. Traditional braces can take years to work with multiple dental visits, which can sometimes prolong treatment.

No Special Diets

Because of the metal as well as the moving parts in braces like rubber bands, traditional braces often require special diets to avoid foods getting stuck in the braces and interfering with their performance. With Invisalign, you can remove the tray while you eat, then brush your teeth, clean your aligner and pop it back in, making life easier.

Protect Your Teeth

The soft plastic of aligner trays applies less force and pressure to your teeth, which ultimately protects the integrity of your teeth.

Enjoy Sports

If you enjoy certain sports that may be a bit rough, no worries. There are no metal pieces that can poke or scratch your mouth like traditional braces. But we still emphasise caution for any sports, simply because your teeth are important.

Special Events

Sometimes special events like a graduation or wedding may come up, and we know that patients want to look their best. With Invisalign, it is possible to take a break for a day or so, and resume treatment after the event. Some patients have even put their treatment on hold for up to a month and pick up treatment where you left off. Of course, many patients also realise with clear aligner trays, there is often no need to stall treatment.

Who Can Get Invisalign?

Invisalign is a patient favorite for teeth alignment. Ideal candidates should be able to wear the trays for 20-22 hours each day, so commitment is necessary. This dental solution is also intended for mild to moderate cases of misalignment, and if teeth are too out of place, we may recommend braces. The following situations are ideal for Invisalign treatment:

Crowded teeth

Crossbite

Overbite and Underbite

Small gaps between teeth

Children with mildly narrow dental arches

Children with bite issues to protect issue for worsening
