What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a specialist field in dentistry that focuses on straightening and aligning your teeth. It focuses on the diagnosis and treatment (both corrective and preventative) of dental or facial irregularities. Orthodontic work can be carried out by a dentist with more complex orthodontic issues may be referred to a specialist orthodontist.

Is orthodontic treatment right for me?

Orthodontic treatment is suitable for patients of all ages, not just teenagers like commonly thought. You are never too old to benefit from correctly aligned teeth. There are now many different types of orthodontic treatment available to suit all ages including Invisalign, a modern technique that is practically invisible and can be removed while eating, drinking and cleaning your teeth.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is essentially a teeth-straightening system designed for patients with misaligned teeth, who prefer a more aesthetic and comfortable alternative to wearing traditional braces. Invisalign can create your new straighter smile, using no brackets, no bands and no wires. Straightening your smile invisibly. Invisalign involves an innovative method of straightening teeth using a series of clear, almost invisible, removable aligners, providing a clear alternative to wires and brackets.

Is Invisalign right for me?

Although Invisalign is appropriate for mild to complex cases of misalignment, gaps, or overcrowding, it may not be an appropriate solution for treating severe orthodontic issues. In general, Invisalign can effectively correct:

  • Gapped teeth
  • Overly crowded teeth
  • Over bite
  • Under bite
  • Open bite

If you have a dramatic overbite, large underbite, or crossbite, traditional orthodontic treatment may be necessary. To evaluate whether your condition can be effectively corrected with Invisalign, the company offers a complimentary smile assessment. Although this tool can help you begin developing realistic expectations, only a dentist can decide whether you are a good candidate for treatment during an Invisalign consultation.
