Use Invisalign to Straighten Teeth without Metal Braces
Invisalign is a virtually invisible way to straighten teeth without the use of traditional metal braces and wires.
New Smile Dental Centre’s Dr Sahba Habibi-Thomas is an accredited (non-specialist) Invisalign provider and can recommend whether Invisalign is suitable for you. In many (but not all) cases, the system can be used to effectively treat dental (orthodontic) issues including crowding, spacing, crossbite, overbite and underbite.
The straightening system can be used on both adults and teens with transparent aligners designed to be comfortable to wear and easily removable for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.
Unlike traditional braces, there are no metal wires or brackets to irritate your mouth or trap food. The benefits of straighter teeth include:
- Healthier gums – Clinical studies have shown that when teeth are properly aligned, it helps the gums fit tighter around the teeth, which can lead to better gum health.
- Better oral health – Makes it easier to brush and floss reducing the chance of plaque build-up, tooth decay and gum disease
- Improved chewing and speech – When incorrectly positioned teeth and jaws are left untreated, it can lead to speech difficulties and chewing issues
- To maintain comfort and tooth structure – Misaligned teeth and jaws can result in pain to supporting bone and jaw joints
- Smile aesthetics
