    To begin with, your dentist will carry out a thorough examination of your teeth and gums.

    This will help identify any underlying dental health issues which need to be addressed before you are ready to straighten your teeth. Your dentist will then carry out a smile assessment. This will determine how misaligned your teeth really are and which type of braces may be most suitable for you. By using the latest in digital dental technology your dentist can show you how teeth straightening will move your teeth to give you something to look forward to and a target to reach.

    Invisalign Sydney is one of the most popular choices of teeth straightening amongst adults in this day and age. It uses clear aligners to straighten your teeth rather than metal wires and brackets. Invisalign is a removable method of teeth straightening which means it is ideal for the modern generation who may not always want to be wearing braces and would prefer the freedom of being able to take them out and put them back in as necessary. Although this is a huge advantage and allows you to eat and drink as you wish, clean your teeth properly and take them out for special occasions or intimate moments, it is still very important that you wear your aligners correctly for best results. Your teeth will only move when the aligners are in your mouth, therefore the longer you keep them in your mouth the better the results you will achieve. The guidelines mention that you need to wear the aligners for approximately 22 hours of the day and by setting a timer when you take them out you will be able to adhere to the guidelines more easily. Each aligner needs to be worn for approximately two weeks and then you move on to the next in the series. The number of aligners that you need will depend on how crooked or wonky your teeth are to begin with. Most people have an average treatment time of approximately 12 months with more complicated cases taking approximately 18 months.

    This method is mostly used for mild or moderate orthodontic issues and for more complex cases you may need to undergo a combined treatment plan. Invisalign can be used by patients of all ages. It can be used by teenagers who want a beautiful straight smile, by adults who have never had braces before and are looking to straighten their teeth or by adults who have had braces previously, but found that some of their teeth have become crooked over time and want to perfect their smile. 

    If this sounds like the ideal solution for you, speak to your dentist today to find out more.
