Clear Aligners, invisalign, epping dentist

Invisalign makes the decision easy! You can get a great and healthy smile without people even noticing you’re going through treatment!

How does Invisalign treatment work?

Your Invisalign treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every two weeks for the next set of aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened and re-positioned into the final position agreed to by you and our dentist.

You can see upfront what your teeth are expected to look like by the end of the treatment with a virtual treatment plan generated by our  ClinCheck® software. It shows the series of movements your teeth will go through over the course of the treatment. Using the results of our ClinCheck software, your custom-made, clear aligners are produced especially for you.

What are the benefits?invisalign, epping dentist

Invisalign is the best way for transforming your smile without interfering with your day-to-day life:

  • The aligners are clear – so hardly anyone will know that you are straightening your teeth.
  • The aligners are comfortable – there are no metal wires or brackets rubbing against your gums or the inside of your mouth.
  • The aligners are effective – you will begin enjoying the benefits of a better smile, even before your Invisalign treatment is finished.  Teeth alignment starts from the moment you start wearing the aligners.
  • The aligners are custom-made – we take impressions of your teeth to produce personal custom-made aligners.
  • The aligners are removable – they can be removed to eat, drink, floss, brush and for special occasions.

What does the procedure involve:

The procedure involves:

  • taking some impressions of your teeth
  • taking photos of your teeth
  • taking a bite

Once you have approved your simulated procedure produced by our ClinCheck® software, we are ready to start.

What teeth spacing does Invisalign help with?

If you have overcrowded teeth, there is simply not enough room for all your teeth to fit normally in your jaw. When left untreated, overly-crowded teeth increase the risk of gum disease, as your teeth are harder to clean and their normal function can be interfered with.

If you have widely spaced teeth, you have extra space in your jaw. This could be due to small-sized teeth, abnormal jaw bone growth, genetic factors, missing teeth and/or tongue protrusion. When teeth are missing, problems can also be caused if the other teeth shift due to the extra space. Spacing issues can lead to some periodontal diseases including Gingivitis and Periodontitis that, left untreated, can lead to tooth loss.

crossbites dentist hornsby

If you have crossbite, your upper and lower jaws are both misaligned. It usually causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, but the bite can also happen on both the front and/or the sides of the mouth. A crossbite can cause wear of the teeth, gum disease and bone loss.

If you have an overbite, your upper teeth significantly overlap your lower teeth. It’s typically caused by either genetic factors, bad oral habits, or over development of the bone that supports the teeth. An overbite can lead to gum problems or irritation, and/or wear on the lower teeth. It can lead to painful jaw and joint problems.

underbites dentist hornsby

If you have an underbite, your lower teeth protrude past the upper teeth. This is usually caused by undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or both. An underbite can also be caused by missing upper teeth which prevent the normal function of the front teeth or molars and can lead to tooth wear. It can also cause painful jaw and joint problems.
