Attractive Orthodontics: An Accredited Provider for Invisalign in Bossley Park, Cabramatta and Fairfield
Braces are an effective means of fixing crooked teeth and creating beautiful smiles. Unfortunately, though, standard braces often get a bad rap. Patients complain about unsightly wires in their mouths, food stuck in their brackets and an overall lack of comfort. For older patients, standard braces can be especially problematic. Since braces are generally associated with the teenage years, adults who have to wear them sometimes feel that they are perceived as younger than they are-a liability if you are trying to move up the professional ladder or find a new job.
Luckily, there is another path to straight teeth and a healthy smile: Invisalign. Since the late 1990s, Invisalign has been changing the way that we think about orthodontic care-not just in Australia, but around the world. At Attractive Orthodontics, we are an Invisalign-accredited orthodontia office serving Bossley Park, Cabramatta, Fairfield and more. We have been providing beautiful smiles to our patients since 2008, and Invisalign has been a big part of what we do for the entirety of that time. Suffice to say that we are quite experienced and skilled when it comes to this modern and high-tech orthodontic method, and are happy to share the benefits with you.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Often, when patients comes to Attractive Orthodontics seeking Invisalign treatments in Cabramatta, Fairfield or Bossley Park, the first questions they ask are the simplest ones: what does Invisalign actually do, or how does it actually work?
The idea of Invisalign is actually not that much different than the concept behind standard braces. Typical braces use a wire, brackets and bonding materials to straighten teeth, eliminate gaps, correct overbites/underbites and address other similar flaws or problems with a patient’s teeth or jaw.
Instead of using a wire and brackets, Invisalign uses an incremental aligner-molded to the shape of the patient’s teeth-in order to straighten teeth and correct other dental issues. The aligners are created using state-of-the-art computer 3D modeling programs, based on scans of that patient’s teeth and jaw. Over time, Invisalign aligners gradually move teeth into place-just like standard wire and bracket braces!
Why Consider Invisalign in Fairfield, Bossley Park or Cabramatta?
For certain types of patients-young professionals or other adults, especially-the idea of Invisalign is an understandably attractive one. First of all, Invisalign is more aesthetically appealing than standard braces are. Where many patients spend months trying to avoid smiling, simply because their braces are so noticeable, Invisalign patients feel freer and more comfortable with showing their teeth during orthodontic care.
Invisalign patients also often have fewer of the common complaints that standard braces patients do. For instance, it’s easier to eat with an Invisalign aligner-and to avoid getting food stuck in the teeth and brackets-than it is with braces. Invisalign is also easier to clean, and has no impact on speech. Finally, an Invisalign aligner is simply more comfortable to have on your teeth than brackets and wires-even if orthodontists have worked hard over the years to make braces more comfortable and less intrusive.
