Invisalign® in Rockhampton – Discreet Orthodontic Treatment for That Perfect Smile
Many people are put off by orthodontic treatment because they simply don’t want to wear fixed metal ‘train track’ style braces. There is, however, another more discreet method of straightening teeth in the form of clear aligners such as Invisalign. Our Rockhampton and Emerald dentist explains what they are and how they can help you achieve a perfectly aligned smile.
Clear Aligner Treatment at Rockhampton – What Exactly is it and How Does it Work?
Unlike conventional fixed orthodontic braces with visible brackets and wiring, clear aligners here at our Rockhampton and Emerald clinics consist of a series of removable custom-made clear plastic aligners that fit over the teeth just like an invisible mouthguard. No unsightly brackets or wiring are needed.
Each clear aligner is designed to move the teeth a certain distance before it’s discarded for the next one in the series. Our Rockhampton and Emerald patients can expect anything from 12 to 40 aligners that are worn sequentially depending upon the degree of their orthodontic problem. Typically, treatment takes around 12 months, but it can take as little as 6 months or as much as 2 years to complete.

The advantages of Invisalign clear aligners
Our Emerald or Rockhampton patients can benefit from many advantages when they choose clear aligner treatment such as Invisalign. They include:
- Discreet styling – When our Rockhampton/Emerald patients wear Invisalign they are virtually invisible. Unless you tell someone that you’re wearing them, they can be very hard to spot.
- The ability to remove your aligners when eating or drinking or brushing teeth – This makes the job of maintaining your aligners and a healthy mouth easier.
- Easily removable for special occasions – Although we recommend that you wear your aligners for 22 hours a day, they can be taken out for special occasions when the need arises
- No uncomfortable adjusting needed – Unlike conventional orthodontic braces, Invisalign clear aligners need no adjusting. Instead, sustained and gentle pressure will be enough to move your teeth.
