At Stirling Street Dental Clinic, we offer a range of orthodontic treatments to ensure that you can get the best possible smile. If you're unhappy with the appearance of your teeth but want an alternative to traditional braces, we offer Invisalign treatment to straighten your teeth.
Unlike braces, which use metal wires and brackets to straighten teeth, Invisalign moves teeth with a series of custom-made aligners (similar to retainers) made from clear plastic, so they are virtually invisible.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that assists with the straightening of teeth without using metal brackets and wires. It's made of a virtually invisible, customised, and removable dental appliance called aligners. These aligners gradually straighten your teeth over time.
The Invisalign aligners are made from a non-toxic, medical-grade material made from digital scans of your teeth. This orthodontic treatment can be used to treat a variety of dental issues such as:
- Overcrowded teeth
- Widely spaced or gap teeth
- Overbite or deep bite
- and underbite
How the Invisalign treatment works
Before your initial consultation, you will need to get your X-rays, pictures, impression and scans done. Our trained and certified Align Technology dentists will evaluate your dental condition during your consultation and recommend a suitable orthodontic treatment for straight teeth.
Discuss your Invisalign treatment options with your dentist to evaluate the pros and cons. Your dentist will generate a treatment plan using the unique ClinCheck software by Align Technology. It shows the series of movements your teeth will go through throughout your Invisalign treatment. This allows you to visualise what your teeth will look like after wearing Invisalign clear braces.
From the results of the ClinCheck software, our dentists will produce a set of custom-made, clear, virtually invisible aligners just for you. Wear your clear aligners every day for at least 22 hours, only removing them to eat and clean your teeth. You will need to change your set of aligners every few weeks to straighten your teeth gradually.
Visit us every six to eight weeks so your dentist can check the process of your teeth straightening and give you the next set of aligners.
