Digital Technology for excellent results

To begin with you need to speak to your dentist and have a smile assessment to identify if invisalign is the correct choice of teeth straightening for you. Once you and your dentist are happy to proceed, you need to undergo an intraoral scan of your mouth to create a digital image. Invisalign works by using CAD/CAM technology to manipulate this image and predict how your teeth will look following invisalign treatment. This technology helps create a series of aligners from a single impression of your teeth. The aligners are designed to move the teeth by approximately 0.25 to 0.33 mm in the space of 10 to 14 days.

The aligners can take around 4 weeks to arrive at your dental practice and you can have the initial fitting carried out by your dentist. You may need attachments to be placed onto your teeth to hold the aligners in place more securely and to apply added pressure to the teeth for greater movement. After this you can continue with the treatment plan in the comfort of your own home. Your dentist will recommend that you visit them after every three or four aligners to make sure that the process is coming along successfully. In comparison to appointments for traditional braces, Invisalign appointments should take no longer than 10 or 15 minutes. Less time at the dental practice means more time for you to carry on with your daily activities. The average treatment time for Invisalign is reported as 6 to 12-months however this depends on the extent of misalignment or malocclusion that you begin with.

Invisalign is believed to be one of the fastest braces for teeth straightening, treating minor orthodontic issues quickly. Speak to your dentist in Ryde today and find out more about straightening your teeth with invisalign.
