Many people refrain from undergoing teeth straightening treatment because they are worried about the permanent nature of fixed appliances. Generally fixed appliances are made of metal and attach to the surfaces of your teeth for the duration of your treatment, meaning that your appliance is always visible and something that you need to commit to from day one. However, for all those people that have been searching for a subtle way to straighten their teeth, it may be time to find out more about getting Invisalign in Sydney CBD. This type of straightening treatment stands out from the rest as an unbelievably subtle one that is completely removable and is capable of straightening teeth in as little as six months. In some cases people may not even spot that you are wearing an appliance unless you point it out to them.
A removable appliance for a convenient treatment
This straightening treatment consists of clear plastic aligners that have been custom made to fit over your own teeth. You will be provided with multiple sets to wear in a certain order to ensure that your teeth are moving in the correct, most effective way to reach their final straightened positions. Your almost invisible aligners will need to be worn for a minimum of twenty-two hours a day, but they can be taken out for brushing your teeth and eating. This means that you will be able to carry on eating and brushing your teeth exactly as you did before you started your treatment, and as long as you maintain a good teeth cleaning regime you should be able to avoid a build-up of plaque around your appliance. It’s removable nature means that you no longer have to shy away from photographs either, just pop out your aligner and smile. Just make sure to put your aligners back in afterward, as not wearing your aligners for long enough each day could result in your treatment taking longer to complete overall.
Aftercare that creates long-lasting results
The satisfaction that comes alongside seeing your straight smile for the first time only grows as time passes and you still have a straight smile to be proud of. Seeing your smile in the mirror every morning and feeling good about it instead of insecure can make a difference to how you feel for the rest of your day. However, once you have worn your last set of aligners your teeth will not automatically stay in their new positions. You will need to wear a custom made retainer to make sure that your teeth stay firmly where you want them to be. This will be issued to you by your dental practitioner and should fit comfortably. Your practitioner will provide you with clear instructions on how you should wear your retainer to ensure that it works effectively. A majority of people will need to wear their retainer constantly for a period of a week after they have finished treatment, and then after this will only be required to wear it at night. Depending on your individual circumstances it may be necessary for you to continue wearing it at night for a few months, a few years, or even the rest of your life.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
