Time For Your Teeth To Get In Line!
Everyone wants straight teeth but more and more patients are unwilling to wear conventional braces to achieve the result. Having visible wires and brackets on the teeth has become unacceptable aesthetically which has led to the development of aligner orthodontics or “invisible braces”.
It’s not just the look of metal braces that puts people off. Metal braces have a reputation of being harder to maintain and clean. Many people who have used metal braces have found them to be physically uncomfortable. Aligner Orthodontics address these issues by providing a less intrusive, more comfortable and easier to manage process to straightening teeth. In many cases, they work in the same amount of time and produce the same end result.

It's Our Little Secret
With aligner orthodontics, the patient wears a series of clear, wafer-thin, removable aligners, which gently guide the teeth from their present position to the desired position. Each aligner is worn 22 hours per day for 2 weeks to move the teeth a certain degree before the next aligner continues the straightening process. The aligners are customised for each patient, giving predictable, effective results.
Due to their design, aligners have significant advantages over traditional braces with wires and brackets. The aligners are clear so they appear nearly invisible to the eye. They are wafer-thin so they are more comfortable to wear and cause less irritation and tissue trauma. They are completely removable which makes it much easier to clean the teeth as well as eat and drink.
What's The Best Way To Line Up?
When it comes to orthodontics and teeth straightening, most people prefer aligners over brackets and wires. Here are some benefits of using aligners for teeth straightening:
- No need for brackets and wires
- Virtually invisible when worn
- More socially acceptable
- Easier to maintain
- Can take out to clean the teeth and eat
- Less intrusive
- More comfortable
- Less trauma to soft tissues
- Just as effective as braces
Lots Of Ways To Straighten Things Out!
There are many brands of orthodontic aligners available such as Invisalign, ClearCorrect and ClearPath. You may of heard more about some of these brands than others. That is probably more to do with marketing then it is to do with results. At Central Brisbane Dental, we choose to use ClearPath. Why have we chosen to work with ClearPath? Well for us the journey to the end result is just as important as the end result. We are all about promoting short and long term dental health and aesthetics, and in our opinion ClearPath provides the best aligner to do this.
Unlike other brands, ClearPath’s patented technology allows each aligner to grip the teeth and move them precisely without the need for attachments on the teeth. Attachments are usually shapes of plastic filling material bonded onto the teeth to help them move when wearing orthodontic aligners. Although this filling material is removed after treatment is complete, they are disadvantageous during treatment. Teeth with attachments are less aesthetically pleasing, are harder to clean and are not as smooth as teeth without attachments. The filling material may also come off during eating and drinking, may be accidently swallowed and need to be replaced.
