Invisible Braces in Sydney

Have you ever been upset by the alignment or spacing of your teeth? Do you worry whether your crooked teeth are affecting your smile? When you suffer from overcrowded, crooked, misaligned or over-spaced teeth then invisible braces such as Invisalign™ and ClearCorrect™ may be a viable way to straighten your smile and boost your confidence.

Misaligned teeth and bite problems, such as over-bites and under-bites, are not only confidence sapping they may also pose hygiene issues. This is because awkwardly aligned teeth provide places for plaque and bacteria to hide and build up. Places that might be difficult to clean with regular oral hygiene   methods. So a treatment that straightens your teeth, such as Invisalign™ and ClearCorrect™, may go a long way towards giving you a big, healthy smile.

From our Sydney based clinics we offer the latest in Invisalign™ and ClearCorrect™ technology, supported by our highly qualified dentists. This means you can be sure of a highly professional treatment in a fully equipped facility.

How Invisible Braces Work

At About Smiles Sydney, we perform a bracketless procedure for teeth realignment, commonly known as invisible braces instead of traditional orthodontics. This means rather than using metal or ceramic brackets we apply clear aligners. These are perfect for adults because you won’t have to worry about feeling self-conscious while your teeth are being realigned since the process is virtually invisible.

The technique involves creating a series of sheer, plastic aligners that will gradually adjust your teeth over time into the desired position. The final position will be decided based on the recommendation of the dentist, with your agreement. The procedure involves:

  • Taking an initial impression of your teeth
  • Creating a 3D image from this impression
  • Running a computer simulation to create the full set of custom aligners
  • Fabricating the aligners and fitting them to maximise comfort

Once they have been fitted and you begin wearing them, adjustments will need to be performed approximately every 6 weeks to track the movement of your teeth and assess if any alterations are required. Depending on the severity of your teeth misalignment, the process can take from 6 months to 18 months.

The Benefits

This method comes with several distinct advantages over other methods used to create a confident, straight and healthy smile. These include:

  • A clear material means less attention is drawn to your mouth, so you don’t have to feel self-conscious about the procedure, whatever your age
  • Removable aligners mean keeping up good oral hygiene is easier. You’ll need to remove the aligner before eating and wash it before placing it back in your mouth
  • The smooth plastic means less irritation for your cheeks and gums
  • It doesn’t come with the same food restrictions that come with traditional orthodontics
  • Aligners can be removed for short periods for special occasions
