Orthodontics involves the proper positioning of teeth. It deals with the relationship between your teeth and the jaw bone.
A common orthodontic problem is malocclusion (bad bite). Typical reasons for malocclusion are crowded teeth, extra or missing teeth, wrongly positioned teeth, or misaligned jaws.
Orthodontic treatments are designed to straighten your teeth or realign your jaw over a period of time.
At Coastal Dental Care, we offer two clear aligner orthodontic treatments:
Invisalign is a braces-free orthodontic option. The treatment consists of a set of custom-made clear aligners.
The patient can remove these aligners when they eat, drink or as they wish – as long as they worn for the prescribed 20-22 hours a day.
Invisalign treatment has no age restriction. Whether you are 14 or 40, depending on the severity of your orthodontic issue, you may be eligible for this treatment.
Similar to Invisalign, SmileStyler is a removable, clear aligner system. The key difference is that SmileStyler aligners are Australian-made.
SmileStyler also fabricates the new aligners after a new scan in each of your treatment stages whilst Invisalign aligners are made at the beginning of your treatment.
If your case is suitable for SmileStyler, the treatment method can help realign teeth and improve your smile cosmetically and functionally.
The overall treatment process takes between 24 and 72 weeks, depending on the aligner type you choose. Ask your dentist today to find out if your case is suitable for SmileStyler treatment.
