Invisalign is a ground-breaking alternative to traditional braces that produces a beautiful, confident smile without needing to use the traditional, unsightly metal braces. By using clear, removable teeth aligners, Invisalign is able to correct bite issues and treat teeth crowding and misalignment. This revolutionary technique is growing in popularity due to its discreet nature and relative comfort when compared to traditional metal braces.
Choosing Invisalign over traditional braces has many benefits including the fact that, as the name suggests, they are virtually invisible and often undetectable by others. Traditional braces can also irritate the mouth and cause pain each time they are adjusted. Invisalign users may report discomfort during the early stages of treatment, however, this eases. You are also able to visualise each stage of treatment and see the results as they are happening. The most significant difference between Invisalign and traditional metal braces are that they are removable. This means you can eat and drink whatever you like without worrying about damaging or getting anything stuck in your aligners. This also helps in maintaining oral hygiene as the Invisalign clear teeth aligners are easily removed for brushing and flossing. This treatment is becoming increasingly popular among both teens and adults alike. The discreet nature of Invisalign means there is less discomfort with the same amazing results!

When starting the Invisalign treatment process, an impression of your teeth will be taken by the dentist to ensure the aligners are completely customised to your specific needs. Once this has been done you will begin given a set of Invisalign aligners that progressively move your teeth in the desired position. You will usually change aligners every two weeks but can take them out any time to eat or brush your teeth. Every 6-8 weeks you will return to see the dentist so we can monitor your result and order your next set of Invisalign aligners. This process generally takes 9-15 months for stunning results.
Traditional braces often irritate the mouth and cause pain each time they are adjusted. Invisalign users may report discomfort during the early stages of treatment, however, this eases. The fitting of Invisalign aligners should not cause extraordinary pain or discomfort, so there is no need for numbing or anaesthetic and the least interruption to your day.
Although Invisalign is not painful to bet fitted, being scared of the dentist is a common fear among both young and old and nothing to be ashamed about. Thankfully there are talented dentists such as the ones at our clinics who are trained in methods that will decrease your anxiety associated with dentists and allow you to get the treatment you need. Oral health is extremely important to your overall health and shouldn’t be delayed, especially when facing a condition that could compromise the future integrity of your smile.

One of the main techniques we use to overcome your fears is Sedation Dentistry. Sedation Dentistry is the process of performing dental treatments while the patient is under conscious (or twilight) sedation. This process can be beneficial in many circumstances including when complex extensive dentistry needs to be undertaken and when the patient faces anxiety about dental work in general. If you’ve experienced issues with extreme gum sensitivity, a fear of needles, a low pain threshold, or a strong gag reflex when visiting the dentist, Sedation Dentistry could be the solution.
