How will Invisalign straighten my teeth?

Invisalign has become a household name. While it’s hard to forget the uncomfortable nature of train track braces, Invisalign aligners are fast replacing alternatives as the go-to teeth straightening solution across the globe. 

It’s likely you’ve heard a lot about the effectiveness of Invisalign, but in order to make the best choice for your oral health it is essential to research how these braces work and whether they are suited to you. 

Keep reading to learn all about Invisalign clear aligners in Stirling, and how they will straighten your teeth with stunning results.


What exactly is Invisalign?

When considering the most ideal form of braces, the idea of invisible aligners sounds like the dream solution. Invisalign treatment in Stirling and Joondalup delivers just that – an essentially undetectable aligner that substitutes metal braces for a transparent removable tray. 

Just like every mouth is different, each clear Invisalign aligner is custom-made using safe BPA-free plastic to suit the exact specifications of every individual. While the main attraction may be the subtlest-imperceptible look of Invisalign, the level of comfort attained while shifting teeth is an impressive advantage when compared to metal brace alternatives.


The straightening power of Invisalign

Unlike other straightening aligners which focus solely on minor gaps or crowding issues, Invisalign is capable of tackling complex cases and delivering stunningly straight results each time. By replacing custom Invisalign trays every few weeks, teeth will gently shift into place following a 3-dimensional model of your mouth that ensures clear custom results. 

By using gentle pressure to reconfigure your teeth, slight discomfort is felt but no pain. Once you ensure the aligners are worn for no less than 20 hours a day, a significantly faster treatment time than alternatives can be expected depending on the severity of your bite issues.

Invisalign clear aligners in Stirling can straighten teeth and correct issues such as:

  • Severe overcrowding 
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Open bite
  • Cross bite
  • Gapped teeth
  • Crooked teeth


How long do Invisalign clear aligners take to work?

The length of time Invisalign takes to work heavily depends on your teeth and bite, as well as oral health and dedication to the process (aka wearing the aligners). While the average length for Invisalign use is 9-12 months – up to 18 months for more severe dental issues – certain cases can be resolved in a whopping 6 months faster than metal brace options. 

Invisalign in Joondalup must be worn for 20-22 hours a day, with new aligners received every 4-6 weeks – you play an implant role in the treatment duration so dedicated daily use and consistent oral health care is essential.
