At Clifton Hill Dental, we want everyone to have the opportunity to achieve the smile of their dreams. Many of our patients want to correct crooked or gapped teeth, and we are delighted to offer Invisalign® to our friends and neighbours in Clifton Hill and surrounding areas.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic technology that uses clear aligners to comfortably and discreetly straighten teeth. With Invisalign, patients can achieve the symmetrical smile they have always wanted in 12 to 18 months, though many patients see results in a matter of weeks.
Invisalign is customised to fit your smile, so your clear aligners fit comfortably and perform effectively. An Invisalign lab creates your unique aligners, and you wear each set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day. Patients typically change to a new set of aligners every two weeks, as directed by Dr Nick.
Each set of clear aligners gently and gradually move a patient’s teeth into the ideal position until they reach their desired results.
Can I Get Invisalign If I Have Cavities?
If you have cavities before Invisalign treatment, Dr Nick may advise you to have your cavities filled before fitting you for aligners. Filling a cavity before your Invisalign treatment allows your tooth to heal before placing additional pressure on the tooth.
It is essential to maintain an excellent oral hygiene routine to keep cavities and gum disease at bay, as these conditions can cause other dental and health issues in the future if not prevented or treated.
Because you can remove your Invisalign clear aligners to brush and floss your teeth, patients often experience improved oral hygiene, reducing the risk of developing cavities during treatment.
If you do develop a cavity, Dr Nick can quickly treat it so you can continue your Invisalign treatment without the risk of decay affecting your oral health or your teeth’s appearance.
