Invisalign® Clear Aligner Therapy
Looking to straighten your teeth without anyone knowing? We prefer to use the state-of-the-art Invisalign® clear aligner system to straighten crooked teeth. They are virtually invisible, much more comfortable, and easier to look after, compared to traditional braces.
The Invisalign® aligners are clear and removable. You can take them off easily to eat and to clean your teeth, and hence, you don’t need to spend a lot of time trying to get food stuck like if you had braces. When you can clean your teeth properly, this translates to optimal oral hygiene, less dental cavities and better gum health.
Unlike braces, the aligners are custom fitted and not bonded to your teeth. Therefore, they are much more comfortable to wear, without disrupting your day to day lifestyle. They do not continuously rub and cut against the inside of your cheeks and lips.
Additionally, when there are orofacial myofunctional issues apparent, we can combine this clear aligner therapy with orofacial myology as part of the Myofocus™ Orthodontic System, to correct the muscle functions of the mouth and face while straightening the teeth simultaneously. Practically, all orofacial myology exercises can be performed while wearing the aligners with little difficulties. Straight teeth, balanced bite and optimal muscle functions, can all be achieved at once.
At The Dental Suites, our principal dentist, Dr. Donny, has been a Certified Invisalign® Provider since 2011. We offer free Invisalign® initial assessment, to determine your suitability. If you are a candidate, then full orthodontic records will be gathered to treatment plan your Invisalign® journey. Our practice also has an advanced digital workflow, with direct connection to the Invisalign® production centres via our iTero® Element 2 intra-oral scanner, eliminating the need to take impressions (moulds) of your teeth and making the entire process much more efficient.
