Invisalign Clear Braces in Brisbane CBD

Woman holding Invisalign aligners in Brisbane CBDThe team at Edward St Dental knows how important a beautiful smile is to our patients. However, we’ve seen how misaligned teeth, gaps, and overlaps can cause a person to hide their smile from the world. Feeling self-conscious about your smile can impact relationships with friends and family, co-workers, or even just a person on the street.

We don’t want anyone to be embarrassed by their smile, so we offer patients in Brisbane the newest and most effective ways to straighten their teeth. We recommend clear aligners made by companies like Invisalign and Smile Styler.

The Advantages of Invisible Braces

Clear aligners, also called invisible braces, offer many advantages to traditional metal braces. One reason is comfort and manageability. You can take out your invisible aligners to eat and to brush and floss and enjoy all your favourite foods.

Another reason patients choose clear aligners is that they blend with your teeth. Where traditional metal braces are obtrusive, invisible braces live up to their name and are hardly noticeable. A discreet appearance makes invisible braces popular with older teens and adults concerned about having a mouth full of metal. In summation, comfort, removability, and discretion make clear aligners an ideal way to straighten your smile.

Invisalign Process at Edward St Dental

The Edward St Dental professionals will examine your teeth to ensure you are a good candidate for clear aligner treatment. Then, we will measure your mouth and teeth to create a treatment plan that will help you attain your smile goals. This consultation is also where we can determine your treatment length and other details.

From the data we gather in your initial visit, a specialised lab will produce several aligners customised to your mouth. You will begin the first aligner in the series, wearing them based on Dr Pulvirenti’s recommendations, which are:

  1. Wear your aligner 20-22 hours per day
  2. Change to the next aligner after about 2-3 weeks
  3. Remove your aligner for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing
  4. Maintain periodic check-ups to ensure the effectiveness of the treatment

As your aligners slowly move your teeth into their desired positions, you will see the progress first-hand. Your aligners should fit well, but Dr Pulvirenti could augment them with small restorations on teeth which will help them into their final location and alignment. All you need to do is wear them as recommended and watch your new smile emerge.
