I just remember some of my friends at school with train tracks. They had to wear them for years and they looked so painful. Also let’s not forget the food issue! Suffice to say braces were not on my to-do list.
Now there’s an easier, invisible, removable option: Invisalign.
It uses a series of clear plastic removable splints aligners specifically designed for you, that will move your teeth into the desired position in 6 – 18 months!
When the aligners are placed on the teeth, they cause the teeth to gradually shift from their current position to their ideal position over time.
For the best results they should be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day – even while you sleep.
If you’re anything like me you would like to see how the end result will look prior to treatment. I’m one of those mums that needed to know the sex of her baby. I’m not good with surprises!
Invisalign allows you to view your virtual results before you start so you can see how your straightened teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
But best of all Invisalign aligners are completely removable. Happy days! So you can remove them before eating or drinking and easily brush and floss to maintain good oral hygiene. I’m an avid flosser, I floss if I just look at food so this is great for me.
Got a special occasion coming up? No problem! Just take your aligners out for the event and pop them back in when you’re done. Simple.
With so many places offering Invisalign in Sydney that perfect smile is definitely on my to-do list now!
