Are you unhappy with the appearance of your smile? Many people have crooked or wonky teeth but are apprehensive about undergoing orthodontic treatment. Did you know that thanks to advances in digital dental technology, teeth straightening is now easier than ever before. You can straighten your teeth without having to undergo extensive orthodontic treatment. By now most of us have heard of invisible methods of teeth straightening. Speak to your dentist and find out about Invisalign Wagga for teeth straightening.
Invisalign Wagga, as the name suggests helps you straighten your teeth invisibly. You can undergo orthodontic treatment without frequent visits to the dentist, and uncomfortable metal wires and brackets in the mouth and most importantly without drawing unwanted attention to your teeth. Invisalign Wagga allows you to straighten your teeth at your complete discretion. Invisalign Wagga does not use brackets or wires to straighten your teeth, rather it works using BPA free, thermoplastic aligners which are clear and almost invisible when they are worn in the mouth. Invisalign works to address minor or moderate orthodontic cases and it can also be used as part of a treatment plan in combination with other procedures to enhance the appearance of the smile. It can be used in those patients who have already undergone orthodontic treatment earlier on in life but looking to perfect their teeth further.
How does Invisalign Wagga work?
First you will visit the dentist for an examination of your teeth and gums and a smile assessment to decide whether Invisalign is the correct choice of treatment for you. Your dentist will take digitised impressions of your teeth. These impressions are used to create a digital image which helps put together an individually tailored treatment plan for you. A series of clear aligners will be designed and manufactured to help move your teeth into a neater formation. These are designed to fit your mouth accurately and apply pressure to different parts of the mouth at a time. You may require small tooth coloured attachments to be fitted to the surface of your teeth to help the aligners grip well and apply further pressure to each tooth.
You will receive all the aligners at the start of the treatment. This could be for a period of 6 to 12 months depending on how simple or complicated the misalignment issues of your teeth proved to be. Each of these aligners are worn for 1 to 3 weeks at a time. They need to remain in your mouth for around 22 hours of the day. They are invisible in the mouth therefore you do not need to take them out during the day but they must be removed at meal times. This means that you can enjoy all your favourite food and drink without having to worry about damaging your aligners. After that you brush and floss as usual to maintain good dental hygiene, wash your aligners with a soft toothbrush and ordinary toothpaste and rinse them before replacing them back into your mouth. The aligners themselves are easy to become accustomed to and do not affect the appearance or function of your mouth.
