North Queensland Family Dental offers 'invisible orthodontics' with Invisalign

While traditional, wired dental braces can put you on the path to straighter teeth, it can be a journey filled with limits.

From having to avoid hard foods to spending the extra amount of time thoroughly cleaning your teeth, these dental braces can prove to be some work. Not to mention the visible wires and brackets that have adults skipping orthodontic treatment altogether!

There's good news however, for those with bite issues and crooked, overcrowded or widely spaced teeth, with invisible orthodontics available at North Queensland Family Dental.

Invisalign braces offer a convenient way of straightening teeth with removable aligners that can deliver life changing results in anywhere from 9 to 18 months, depending on your case.

Patients who were once uncomfortable with the thought of receiving traditional orthodontic treatment can take advantage of Invisalign orthodontics, with this method involving the creation of a customised, computer generated aligner that is worn for two weeks at a time. This is then replaced with the next aligner in the sequence, with full treatment typically including 18-36 aligners for both the upper and lower teeth.

Invisalign can be a cost-effective solution for orthodontic treatment, granting you the freedom to eat and drink what you want, and brush and floss as you normally would to ensure good oral hygiene throughout the course of treatment.

It's not only the subtle appearance and flexibility that makes Invisalign an attractive option for treatment, but also how comfortable the aligners are.

Metal brackets and wires can irritate the mouth, but the thin, transparent plastic of Invisalign aligners won't provide you with any discomfort. You can also expect less time sitting in your dentist's chair, with no tightening or adjustments to be made.

The friendly team at North Queensland Family Dental can help you on your way to straighter, healthier teeth. Invisalign might not be the right orthodontic treatment for everyone, so it is essential to talk with your dentist about all possible treatments available.
