Invisalign Teen Provider Melbourne
Invisalign Teen is a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment system that uses a series of removable aligners to transform our patients smiles
Adolescence is hard enough without the need for feeling self-conscious about crooked teeth. The fact of the matter is crooked teeth, over or under bites can have a profound effect on a teen’s self-esteem. Often leading teens to avoiding smiling, withdraw, and miss out on important social events. For most of our adolescent patients the thought of undergoing orthodontic treatment can be daunting and often seems out of the question. The thought of bulky traditional metal braces is something they don’t want to think about.
At Designer Orthodontics we offer the solution to this problem, Invisalign eliminates the need for traditional braces allowing for discrete orthodontic treatment.
How does Invisalign Teen work?
Using a revolutionary technique, Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners which gradually shift your teeth towards a straighter smile. Where traditional braces use metal brackets and wires to shift teeth into position; Invisalign uses clear custom made aligners to achieve the same result. Over the course of treatment the aligners are changed approximately every two weeks, gradually pushing teeth into a more aesthetically pleasing position.
Perhaps the best feature of these clear aligners is the fact that they are fully removable meaning you can still enjoy your favourite foods, brush and floss and enjoy social events without feeling self-conscious. It is important to note that the success of the Invisalign treatment is heavily dependent on your willingness to wear the aligners for a minimum of 22 hours a day, this can dramatically influence the final result and time frame you will be required to wear them.
