Nowadays, correcting crooked teeth doesn’t mean you have to have that “train track look” on your teeth.
With modern dentistry comes Invisalign, an orthodontic treatment that uses clear aligners to straighten the teeth. Read on to learn more.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is one of the best orthodontic treatments available. It makes use of clear, custom-made aligners to straighten the teeth into their desired position. The aligners are removable and are nearly impossible to detect when worn.
Each Invisalign tray is worn for two weeks and should stay on your teeth for 20-22 hours a day. They should only be removed during eating, brushing, and during contact sports activities.
Orthodontic Problems Solved By Invisalign
The following are the orthodontic issues solved by Invisalign. Take a look.
- Crooked teeth
- Spaced teeth
- Overly crowded teeth
Although Invisalign solves the same issues as traditional braces, this orthodontic treatment is not for everyone. See your Caringbah Dental Care dentist for an orthodontic evaluation.
An orthodontic evaluation is a series of tests made to identify your bite defects and the jaw problems to be addressed by orthodontic treatment. Your dentist’s diagnoses will be based on the results of this test, including the duration of the orthodontic treatment.

The Invisalign Procedure
After the orthodontic evaluation and the initial consultation, the impressions and photos of your teeth will be sent to the Invisalign laboratory. These will be used to create a 3D projection of how your teeth should be aligned.
Your Caringbah Dental Care dentist will then review and approve the 3D projection. After which the Invisalign trays will be created and sent back to the dental facility.
Once your trays have arrived, your dentist will instruct you on the correct usage and care of the product. Follow up dental check ups will be scheduled to monitor your progress. Check ups are usually scheduled every six weeks.
The Invisalign aligners will gradually move your teeth into the proper position, resulting in a straighter, perfectly aligned smile.
