What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an invisible way to straighten your teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign uses invisible aligners to gently shift the teeth into position. These clear aligners are similar to clear plastic retainers and need to be changed weekly or fortnightly depending on the patient’s treatment plan. They are comfortable and clear making it virtually invisible and undetectable. By using Invisalign latest technology in their patent plastic and their clinchek program. More complex cases can be completed with Invisalign Sydney. Cases such as overcrowding, gap teeth, overbite, underbite, crossbite and open bite. In most situations the dentist will perform an interproximal treatment to allow the patient’s teeth to have enough space to align. When comparing Invisalign braces to traditional metal braces, they both use the same method of applying pressure onto the teeth to straighten. However the tool of appliance to do so is different, so where invisalign has a clear aligner system that can’t be detected. Traditional metal braces have an advantage of completing the treatment quicker with the force of the metal arch wires.
