Invisalign is an aesthetic treatment alternative to the metal braces our parents or we grew up with. It uses clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth and improve bite function. The aligners are virtually invisible to most observers and provide the most comfortable, aesthetic and hygienic treatment option; making Invisalign the ideal choice for older teenagers and adults.
After we take the patient records, we will use the latest technology in 3D iTero scanning, which replaces the uncomfortable and messy traditional impressions (moulds) of the teeth. A computer simulation of your teeth and bite is then generated, allowing Dr Piller immediate digital access to begin the process in treating your case.
Advanced digital imaging makes it possible to illustrate what to expect throughout your treatment, as your teeth move and your facial appearance improves, and to visualise the outcome.
Once Dr Piller has approved your treatment plan, he will provide the first series of aligners. We typically recommend that you wear each set of aligners for 7-14 days before graduating to the next in the series. Dr Piller will arrange orthodontic review appointments, scheduled at specific intervals, during your treatment to monitor changes and make any necessary amendments to your treatment plan.
Why Choose a Specialist Orthodontist?
Invisalign is the world-leader in clear aligner treatment with advances in technology and material that allow a skilled orthodontist to treat more complex cases that, in the past, would have only been attempted with traditional braces. Even if you have been told that you are not a good candidate for Invisalign, we encourage you to contact Eastern Suburbs Orthodontics to arrange an evaluation with Dr Piller. He has over twelve years' experience treating many complex cases with Invisalign.
Some of the following concerns can be addressed with Invisalign treatment:
- Crooked or crowded teeth
- Overlapping or twisted teeth
- Gaps between the teeth
- Bite issues - deep bite, overbite, underbite and crossbite
As a Platinum Invisalign Provider, Dr Piller has made this innovative and popular option a reality for many of our patients.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign allows you to maintain your normal lifestyle with comfort and convenience. Patients often let us know how flexible Invisalign is with their schedule and life/work balance. Invisalign aligners are removable; therefore, eating and oral hygiene are easier to manage, whilst providing the opportunity to enjoy professional engagements and social occasions with confidence and ease.
Post-Orthodontic Treatment Retention
Our practice philosophy is to ensure that your hard work, commitment and pleasing result is maintained long-term. The only way that we can ensure a stable orthodontic outcome is with life-long retention.
Immediately after orthodontic treatment has completed, the teeth are vulnerable to movement. This is because the bone around the teeth has expanded and requires time to condense and stabilise after treatment. This is the reason why fixed and removable retainers will be provided and are so important!
