Clear aligners at Sandstone Point – A Discreet Alternative to Conventional Braces

How are clear aligners different?

Made from clear polyurethane plastic and worn over the teeth like a gum-shield, clear aligners do away with conventional brackets and wiring altogether. Rather than one fixed appliance worn for the duration of your treatment, patients will receive multiple clear aligners. These are swapped out every one to two weeks until your teeth reach their correct position.

Because they are designed to be easily removed, clear aligners are minimally invasive and cause little interference to eating and brushing and flossing your teeth. Moreover, they are virtually invisible so nobody needs to know that you are even wearing them.

How the process works

Our dental team will begin by taking digital images of your teeth in their current position. These will be used to plot the necessary tooth movements and create your clear aligners.

As you wear them, each one is designed to progressively shift your teeth around 0.33 millimetres. While that might not sound a lot, movement mounts up over the course of your treatment to achieve the final desired results.

Every time you pop a new aligner in, you may feel a little pressure on your teeth for the first few days. This is natural and proves that your aligners are working. They should be worn for between 20 and 22 hours a day in order to achieve the best results. Treatment takes between 6 months and 2 years depending on its complexity while the average duration is 12 months.

If you aren’t happy with your smile, but don’t fancy wearing traditional braces, come and talk to us about clear Aligners. Sandstone Point Dental patients can rest assured that they are in trusted and capable hands. Call today on 07 5429 5628 to book a consultation.
