Invisalign Invisible Braces in Lower Hutt, NZ

Being told that you need braces may be alarming, especially if you are worried about the appearance of brackets, rubber bands, and wires. The good news is that the Invisalign system will give you the same results as traditional braces but without taking away from your natural smile. And it is comfortable, too.


Invisalign Defined

Invisalign is essentially a series of hard plastic aligners—moulded to create a tray that fits around your teeth—that can fix issues like an overbite, underbite, open bite, and crossbite.

The Invisalign Process

If you feel Invisalign is right for you, you can book an appointment for a consultation and digital scan of your teeth. The digital planning will help your orthodontist create a multi-dimensional sample and create phases for your Invisalign treatment. Once you and your orthodontist agree on a treatment plan, you will then receive a pack of aligners to change at home biweekly.

Benefits of Invisalign

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is removable. You can remove your aligners when you need to eat, brush or floss your teeth, or rinse your mouth. The series of aligners also allow you to visualise what your teeth will look like at the end of your treatment. For most people, the best part about Invisalign is that the aligners are barely noticeable to other people.

Invisalign Care

Although Invisalign is easy to remove, it is essential to remember that you need to rinse the aligners and brush them, just like you would with your teeth. You may experience tenderness for the first few days, which you can alleviate through over-the-counter painkillers.

How to Know if Invisalign is Right for You

Invisalign is ideal for less severe orthodontic issues, while more severe orthodontic problems may require traditional braces. You can consult your orthodontist to find out what is right for you through an examination, and then go over the costs that your specific plan may require.
