Invisalign orthodontic aligners

Peoplecare Eyes & Teeth, Wollongong CBD’s one-stop dental and optical store, is now a provider for the clear orthodontic aligner – Invisalign.

Why is Invisalign® popular?

Have you always wanted the braces result but don’t want to look like a teenager? That’s the key reason many adults and teenagers use Invisalign.

Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners to progressively straighten your teeth. The aligners can be removed for up to two hours a day – giving you more freedom and flexibility, as well as ease of tooth and aligner cleaning.

Unlike getting braces through an orthodontist, you don’t need an appointment every month. With Invisalign, you only need to come in to see one of our friendly dentists every 2 months.

 

 

The Invisalign system is a virtually invisible and hygienic orthodontic treatment that uses an innovative approach to effectively straighten teeth.

The Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made removable aligners created for you and only you.

Invisalign straightens teeth affected by crowding, spacing, overbite, underbite and deep bite.

Around 12 months is the average treatment time.

The key difference is that Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners (which are a lot like retainers) that can be removed to eat & drink.

Regular braces are made of metal that is attached to your teeth. Incrementally increasing the tension of the wire that threads through the metal piece on each tooth.
