We all want that perfect smile like you see in the movies, pearly whites that are near blinding and so straight you could stare at them all day. Although most of that is down to special effects, the next best thing we can offer at Kings Dental are treatments like Invisalign to help straighten up your smile.
What is Invisalign?
This treatment basically involves the use of a clear plastic brace that’s used to slowly realign your crooked teeth to more aesthetically pleasing positions.
When you first come in for your appointment at Kings Dental in Subiaco we will take a series of scans and then we use those to create a 3D image of your teeth. Then we would normally discuss what needs to be moved and where, whilst showing you the end result of the treatment using the 3D picture. Once everyone’s happy a number of custom braces are then created, and you will need to wear these throughout your treatment. These plastic fittings will change over time to slowly and gently push your teeth to help improve your smile.
Treatment times usually take up to 12 months or more for adults, when younger patients are involved the length can vary somewhat, but your dentist will discuss all this with you.
The benefits of Invisalign
There are lots of great benefits to trying out Invisalign at Kings Dental in Subiaco. For starters, there’s no dental goop residue left on your teeth from impressions and the process is quick so you can get in, get seen and get back to enjoying the rest of your day in no time at all. It also lets you see how your teeth are going to look at the end of the treatment ahead of schedule, which gives you something to look forward to.
When it comes to maintenance of the dental appliance the brace is simple to clean since it can be easily removed for things like mealtimes, brushing your teeth or taking a short break from wearing it all day. Although, if you plan on taking it out of your mouth only do so for a maximum of two hours a day.
The negatives of Invisalign
This particular treatment comes with a lot of benefits for those looking to straighten up their smile, but there is one downside to it. Like any medical procedure there will be some discomfort from wearing the brace as your teeth are forcefully being moved around, but we recommend over-the-counter painkillers to counter this. Plus, over time the discomfort should start to fade away.
These are just a couple of reasons why you should be asking your dentist about Invisalign, there are a lot of great benefits to wearing them whilst your teeth are realigned. If this has piqued your interest, then why not ask about them on your next appointment at Kings Dental Subiaco, it might be the perfect way to improve your smile.
