The benefits of Invisalign
How it works…
Invisalign is a revolutionary treatment that uses clear aligner trays that are custom-made to fit your dental arches perfectly. Using our state-of-the-art Itero Scanner, a 3D scan of your teeth is conducted to produced a custom made treatment plan and 3D simulation of tooth movements. This scan eliminates the need for messy impressions! The treatment plan is carefully analysed and modified as necessary by the Orthodontist to ensure they are happy with tooth movements during treatment, and the alignment of the teeth at the end of treatment.
When aligners are worn they will exert gentle pressure on the teeth, effectively moving them bit by bit to the desired position. Quite a few numbered sets can be given at a time, with a new one inserted by you at home every week. Aligners should be worn for a minimum of 22 hours a day, to achieve the best results.
At the end of active treatment, retainers are important to maintain the orthodontic correction of your teeth. Removable retainers are worn at night. Fixed wire retention is also an available option.
MyOrthodontist was one of the first Australian Orthodontic practices to begin using the Invisalign system when it was first established here in Australia in 2001. Our own Dr Morris Rapaport was one of the first Orthodontists to use Invisalign and over the last two decades, he has regularly attended and lectured at international and local Invisalign Conferences.
Dr Tan and Dr Rapaport are experts in Invisalign, having over 30 years combined experience in the Invisalign System and thousands of very happy Invisalign patients. As such, MyOrthodontist is recognised as an Invisalign Platinum Elite Provider.
