Many of us who do not have straight teeth long for a symmetrical smile. In the past, this meant up to two years in metal and wire braces. Fortunately, today’s technologies can mean a straight smile discreetly with Invisalign.

Your Pascoe Vale dentist offers Invisalign to straighten teeth and provide you with the smile you’ve been looking for.

About Invisalign in Pascoe Vale, VIC

Invisalign starts with a visit to our dental clinic. We examine your oral health to be sure this technology is right for you. If it’s a go, we take careful moulds of your teeth, and the Invisalign lab creates a sequence of custom aligners.

These aligners are made of clear plastic for comfort and discretion. You wear your aligner for about 22 hours every day—removing it to eat and clean your teeth. Every two weeks, you move to the next aligner.

As the weeks go by, your teeth should become straighter. It’s exciting to watch the progression.

After you complete treatment, your dentist provides a custom retainer made of clear, smooth plastic. This device helps keep your teeth in their new positions.

Issues that Invisalign Can Correct

Invisalign is ideal for mild to moderate:

  • Overbite, underbite, crossbite
  • Crooked, twisted, overlapping teeth
  • Uneven spacing or gaps between teeth

When you complete treatment, your straight smile means teeth that are easier to care for. Your toothbrush and dental floss are better able to hit every surface or work more effectively between teeth. An aligned bite also plays a role in your oral health. It can save wear on specific teeth that were once taxed with all the chewing.
