Invisalign in Coopers Plains – Discreet Orthodontics

If you are unhappy with your crooked smile, then perhaps now might be the time to consider teeth straightening with Invisalign®. Patients like the fact that no-one needs to know they are undergoing orthodontic care.

Unlike fixed wire and bracket braces, Invisalign technology utilises a series of clear removable (invisible) aligners throughout the teeth straightening process in order to gradually move teeth into their correct positions.

Invisalign in Coopers Plains – How Does it Work?

Having decided that Invisalign is a suitable treatment for you, a customised treatment plan will be prepared.

This involves creating a digital model of your mouth and teeth using state-of-the-art 3D scanners. From this, our Coopers Plains dentist can map out the tooth movements needed to shift your teeth to their correct positions. Even better, thanks to the wonders of dental technology, she can show you how your new completed smile will look before you even begin.

Provided you’re happy with the proposed outcome, your prescription will be sent to the lab to create your custom aligners.

Each set of aligners is worn over the teeth like a mouthguard and moves teeth by approximately 0.25mm at a time. Every couple of weeks, your aligners will be discarded and replaced with the next in the series. By the time your last set of aligners have been worn, your teeth will be straight and even.

What Can Invisalign Treat

Generally, Invisalign treatment is recommended for mild to moderate dental problems such as:

  • Gapped teeth
  • Underbites, Overbites
  • Open bite
  • Crossbite
  • Crowded teeth
  • Misalignments

The more complex your alignment process, the more aligners you will need. This, in turn, means treatment will be longer and will cost more.

On average, Invisalign treatment time for adults is around 12 -18 months, although you should start seeing results in a few weeks.

While Invisalign in Coopers Plains is a great alternative to fixed braces, it does require a commitment on your part since they need to be worn for a minimum of 22 hours a day. While missing an hour here and there won’t make much difference, if you continue to wear them for less than the allotted time, it will seriously jeopardise your orthodontic rehabilitation.

Frequently asked questions

What happens after finishing my Invisalign in Coopers Plains?
Once you’ve reached your goal of a beautiful straight smile, our Brisbane dentist will recommend retainers. This applies for fixed braces too. Wearing a retainer is necessary because, without this, your teeth will drift back into their original position, undoing all the hard work that you’ve done.
What are the benefits of Invisalign in Coopers Plains?
The main benefit of Invisalign is that the aligners are transparent which makes them an ideal choice for self-conscious teens or adults. Another benefit is that they are removed for eating and drinking, as well as brushing your teeth, which makes it easier to maintain good oral hygiene since there are no wires to trap particles of food.
Do I need to see a specialist orthodontist for my Invisalign treatment?
We are trained experienced providers of Invisalign in Coopers Plains and can determine whether this treatment will work for you.
