Invisalign(R) Provider in Townsville
Did you ever wonder whether it was possible to have straight teeth without going through the process of wearing wired metal braces?
Straightening teeth with traditional orthodontics requires the placement of braces on teeth: these are combinations of brackets and wire that are used to apply pressures to the teeth to move them through the bone into the desired location. While braces are smaller than they ever used to be and are sometimes available in a tooth-coloured shade, no traditional orthodontic brace is ‘invisible’. This has been a big barrier for many adults, who would love to have the results of orthodontic treatment, but who are reluctant to wear braces for the years that it would take to achieve the results.
Braces also make it challenging to keep the teeth plaque-free. It is possible to brush and floss around braces, but this is a very time-consuming task.
Enter Invisalign (R)
The Invisalign(R) orthodontic system allows teeth to be moved without braces: instead, the patient wears a series of computer-generated trays. Each tray is designed to be worn for two weeks, and then is replaced by the next tray in the sequence. Each tray can move the teeth up to half a millimetre during the two week period. And importantly, each tray is made of a thin transparent plastic: they are barely noticeable when they are being worn.
Invisalign trays are removable, so you can brush and floss your teeth in the usual way. The trays must be removed for eating, but are worn all the rest of the day and night.
