Clear Braces and Invisalign
It’s never too late for a straight smile that makes you feel great about the way you look. If you are an adult who has decided it’s time to have the smile of your dreams, but brackets and wires and years of metal hardware does not fit into your lifestyle, we offer clear aligners such as Invisalign, ClearCorrect and MTM aligners in our North Tamworth dental surgery for discreet and outstanding results.
Invisalign Clear Braces in Tamworth
Invisalign utilises a series of clear plastic aligners, rather than brackets and wires, to gradually nudge teeth into proper alignment. Speaking with clear aligners is easy, and you can remove them to eat, drink or for an important presentation at work.
Even if someone is just across the table from you, they will not usually notice your clear braces unless you tell them about your treatment.
Advantages of Clear Braces
While some complex orthodontic issues require traditional orthodontics, clear braces have a number of advantages for most adults seeking straight, beautiful teeth.
Invisalign, ClearCorrect and MTM are all quite similar both in cost and process. While we primarily use Invisalign, Dr Raditaolana and Dr Naledi Mosarwa have experience with most major brands of clear aligners.
Benefits of Invisalign:
- Smooth and comfortable
- Removable for eating and cleaning teeth
- No special floss or brushes necessary
- Invisible when smiling and speaking
- Watch your results as your treatment progresses
- No dietary restrictions
Invisalign requires dedication to results and patient compliance, which is why we recommend Invisalign to our older teen and adult patients to solve most orthodontic conditions.
Following a few simple guidelines will ensure optimal outcomes:
- Wear aligners for 22 hours or more per day
- Remove them only to brush and floss your teeth and to eat
- Clean aligners in lukewarm water and a gentle cleanser
- Avoid exposing aligners to heat
- Wear each set of aligners for 2-3 weeks before progressing to the next pair
Orthodontic Retainer Use
As with all types of braces, Invisalign also requires retainer use after treatment. Without recommended retainer wear, your teeth will drift and undermine your investment in your smile.
