How do invisible braces work?

Straighter, whiter teeth is a smile trait that millions of Australians might be interested in.

The great news is that anyone can redesign their smile without the dreaded "metal-mouth." While traditional orthodontics are very effective, we are here to answer questions Mount Waverley patients may have regarding the invisible nature of clear braces that work well with comfort and style.

How Clear Aligners Work

It's hard to imagine how discreet aligners are until you see them and experience them.

What many patients appreciate is that they never have to worry about or deal with metal brackets or wires. This benefit to plastic aligners allows many patients to remove their aligners before meals, before brushing and flossing, and before a special event or photo. 

Aligners work through a series of custom-fabricated trays that gently shift your teeth up to 0.25 mm to their desired position. 

Invisible Braces Can Treat Many Smile Flaws

Patients with mild to severe smile issues like overbites, underbites, spaces between teeth, and overcrowded teeth might be interested in the many benefits that invisible braces provide. 

Untreated misaligned bites or smiles can lead to joint problems, jaw bone pain, plaque accumulation, gum disease, and more.
