At SmileWorks Dental Doreen, we provide orthodontic treatment with Invisalign to help our patients achieve beautiful, confident smiles. Invisalign works by gradually shifting the teeth into the desired position using a series of custom-made, clear aligners that are removable, allowing for easy maintenance of oral hygiene.
The treatment typically takes six to eighteen months, depending on the complexity of the alignment issue and the individual’s dental condition. The dentists will provide a personalised treatment plan to suit each patient’s needs best and to ensure quality patient care.
The clinic is well-equipped with the latest technology to ensure quality patient care and the best orthodontic treatment possible. We strive to provide the highest quality of professional care and to help our patients achieve beautiful, straight smiles with Invisalign.
Maintaining oral hygiene during orthodontic treatment is essential for preserving dental health and preventing undesirable complications. A good oral hygiene routine includes brushing twice daily, flossing daily, and regular check-ups at the dental practice.
It is also important to clean the dental braces when wearing braces. Invisalign aligners are a convenient alternative, as they are removable and can be cleaned with the same level of hygiene as regular teeth brushing.
Timely and quality care is also essential for the success of any orthodontic treatment, and a good family dentist can guide you through the process. With the right care and attention, you can ensure the best possible outcome for your orthodontic treatment.
After your orthodontic treatment, you’ll likely need to wear a retainer to maintain the new position of your teeth. Retainers are custom-made devices that hold your teeth in their new alignment after braces or Invisalign treatment.
Some patients might need to wear them only at night, while others might need to wear them longer. Friendly experts at SmileWorks Dental Doreen often determine the duration by the complexity of your treatment and how well your teeth have adjusted to their new positions. SmileWorks Dental Doreen will guide you through the post-treatment process to ensure you retain your confidence-boosting smile.
It is common for those undergoing orthodontic treatment to experience discomfort or pain, and dentists can implement various strategies to help manage such sensations.
Over-the-counter pain relievers can provide relief from any initial discomfort. Additionally, orthodontic wax can cover up any rough surfaces from braces’ wires or brackets that may be irritating.
At SmileWorks Dental Doreen, we’re always available to provide advice and solutions to ensure your orthodontic treatment journey is as comfortable as possible.
Speaking with braces or Invisalign can be an adjustment, potentially resulting in a slight lisp or difficulty pronouncing certain words. However, with practice, this difficulty should diminish over time.
Eating with either orthodontic treatment can also be challenging, as braces can make chewing certain foods more difficult. Invisalign aligners, however, are removable and can be taken out during meals, allowing for a comfortable experience.
When wearing braces or Invisalign, patients should consider certain restrictions when deciding what to eat or drink. SmileWorks Dental Doreen offers a variety of care options, including traditional braces, Invisalign, and more, for comprehensive and preventive dental care.
Dental patients should avoid hard, sticky, and chewy foods when wearing traditional braces or Invisalign, as these can cause damage to the braces or aligners. Patients should also avoid foods such as popcorn, toffees, and hard candies, and patients should bite into hard fruits like apples cautiously.
For those wearing Invisalign, sugary or coloured drinks should be avoided as these can stain the aligners. It is important to remember to clean your teeth before reinserting your aligners after meals.
