If you missed your chance to have have braces as a teenager, you might think you have to live with wonky misaligned teeth, or suffer with a mouth full metal brackets and wires. With modern orthodontic options such as Invisalign clear aligners, you can have the straight teeth you always wanted without the pain or embarrassment of traditional braces.
Invisalign and Your Lifestyle
Most adults don’t look forward to the idea of traditional bracket and wire braces and the frequent (sometimes painful) trips to the dentist office. With Invisalign, the process and experience is totally different. After your initial smile assessment, you’ll receive a set of clear plastic aligners – one for your top teeth and another for the lower teeth. Each tray is worn for a couple of weeks, which moves your teeth ever so slightly, then you’ll swap it out for a new tray. With each new tray, your teeth are gently nudges into the desired position.
In our Perth dental clinic, Invisalign is a popular orthodontic treatment choice for many of our adult and teenager patients. Invisalign is a popular and proven choice for tooth straightening due to their nearly invisible appearance, however, the benefits go far beyond the aesthetics. In this article, we shed light on additional benefits of Invisalign.
Invisalign Doesn’t Stain Your Teeth
When traditional braces are placed on the surface of your teeth, discolouration or staining can occur around the site of the brackets and wires, especially if the braces remain glued to your teeth for extended periods of time. Basic oral hygiene like brushing and flossing is difficult due to the wires and brackets getting in the way, which could make your teeth more prone to staining from food and drink.
Invisalign is an extremely popular and effective option for those that want to achieve straight teeth without having traditional metal braces. These clear aligners have become popular for the subtle appearance while you are having your teeth straightened. In fact, your friends, family and coworkers may not even notice you’re having orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is an awesome orthodontic treatment option if you have been thinking about having your teeth straightened.

A virtually invisible and hygienic treatment, Invisalign uses unique SMARTForce Technology to create a series of custom-made removable aligners for you and only you. All you have to do is to wear these aligners, made of a virtually invisible plastic, over your teeth to gradually move them to the ideal position.
These aligners are to be worn 22 hours a day, you can remove them for eating so you can virtually eat any food you like. You also can remove them for special occasions if needed. This then allows you to continue to do the things that you love.
