Straightening Teeth Without Using Brackets and Wires

Older teens and adults can now straighten their teeth without using wires and brackets.



Do you want to treat your misaligned teeth but don’t want anything related to wire-and-bracket braces? Worry no more! At Northern Beaches Dental Group, we can improve your smile’s health and appearance without using brackets and wires.

Invisalign refers to the teeth-straightening system that straightens your teeth without using brackets and wires.

We use aligners, also referred to as personalised, crystal-clear trays, to straighten your teeth properly. You only need to remove the aligners when drinking hot liquids, eating, or cleaning your teeth.

This teeth-straightening system works excellently for adults and older teenagers. You should wait between 12 and 24 months for the desired results, but we always create a treatment plan suiting each individual’s needs, meaning you can have a shorter or longer program. We’ll develop a customized treatment plan together and update you about your progress.

Why Invisalign?

Invisalign comes with several benefits:

  • You’re required to visit the dentist for traditional braces from time to time to get the wires tightened and brace condition reviewed. For Invisalign, you only switch to the next aligners that dentists create as per your needs.
  • Traditional braces are likely to leave your teeth with marks because of the cement and brackets that support them. Stains are likely to accumulate around the brackets, even when practicing proper oral hygiene habits. This issue can result in permanent discoloration.
  • With Invisalign, you can’t feel restricted from eating all your favorite diets. But for traditional braces, you need to give up crunchy diets and sticky foods to avoid damaging the braces’ wires and brackets.
  • The traditional braces’ wires are likely to irritate the delicate tissue, causing pain and discomfort.

The Right Solution To Healthier, Straight Teeth


When To Choose Invisalign

Invisalign is the perfect option if your teeth look out of their place or you have a protruding underbite or overbite.

Common Problems Treated By Invisalign

  • Crossbite
  • Wide gaps
  • Open bite
  • Protruding teeth
  • Crowding
  • Unusual spacing

Invisalign Care

You can keep the teeth healthy by practicing proper oral hygiene, and Invisalign helps a lot in making all this easy. When brushing and flossing, you need to remove the teeth aligners. Remember to brush the teeth aligners and use warm water to rinse them or keep them safe from bacteria and good shape by using the Invisalign cleaning kit.

Don’t clean or rinse the aligners using hot water because the plastic is likely to warp. However, remember to update us immediately if you find yourself in this condition. Also, remember to update us immediately if the aligner cracks or gets distorted.

Make it a daily routine to brush the teeth after each meal before replacing the aligners. By doing this, you’ll prevent bacteria from collecting and causing gum disease, decay, or bad breath.
