Smile with confidence – Invisalign

Smile with confidence – Invisalign

Ever wanted straighter teeth without all the hassle and high visibility of braces?   Invisalign is a modern approach in orthodontic treatment offered by Robert Duhig Dental at Sandgate that will transform your smile without proclaiming the process to the world or requiring much change in your lifestyle. The invisalign system of comfortable aligners is nearly invisible while gradually moving teeth to the ideal projected position. The system is great alternative to braces for slight overcrowding, teeth straightening and closing gaps between teeth. Invisalign also has the added bonus of being completely removable for easy teeth cleaning therefore allowing you to eat and drink what you like.   Fixed or Non -fixed that is the question?   Traditional braces, on the other hand, while recommended for more complicated mouths, typically make use of metal wires with metal brackets and wires to tighten.  The fixed system can be more uncomfortable and definitely requires much more effort with brushing and flossing. This is a direct result of the permanent nature of wire braces promoting calcified plaque build up and associated staining and discolouration (the reason why there are many food restrictions with this method). Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of clear, computer-generated trays which are custom-made specifically for you and are updated roughly every two weeks, based on the exact movements we have planned out for you. The smooth comfortable trays are worn at least 22 hours a day until your treatment is complete which typically takes anywhere between 6 and 15 months. Many of our adult patients have never considered traditional braces but are now happily and comfortably improving their smiles with the Invisalign system. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth!     For more information book a free consultation with Rob at Robert Duhig Dentist in Sandgate to discuss your smile possibilities...
