Invisalign or braces?
In this new age of technology it seems that we are constantly finding new and better ways to do amazing things that was once considered impossible to do.
Everyone has heard about braces to make teeth straight but Invisalign – no braces or clear braces, as some people like to call it, is not so familiar. So what if there was a way to straighten teeth with no braces that was almost invisible, much more comfortable, you can eat what you like and you could see virtual results before treatment even started?
Over Four Million Invisalign patients have been treated worldwide and this number is growing dramatically!
Well, there now is such an amazing technology, and believe it or not, it has now been available for over 10 years and over 2 million dental patients have had this new orthodontic treatment worldwide! If you haven’t heard about Invisalign or clear braces then you probably don’t have crooked teeth, buck teeth, severe crowding or gaps in your teeth. It can also correct patients that have problems with their bite such as over bites, underbites, deep bites, openbites or crossbites. In fact, not only can Invisalign – no braces straighten teeth or improve your bite but it has also helped dental patients to clean their teeth more effectively since there is less areas for food and plaque to get trapped. This means your teeth and gums could be a whole lot more healthier and easier to look after.
We are constantly improving our Invisalign treatments
My name is Dr Joseph Paino, a Melbourne dentist in St Kilda Rd who being so passionate about this wonderful new alternative to braces, I promptly introduced Invisalign into my Enhance Dental clinic when it first became available in Australia way back in 2002. I am so amazed about Invisalign technology, I attend every course I can find about it, study and research the system intently and continue to broaden my knowledge on Invisalign at every opportunity I get. In fact the latest advances in Invisalign technology which has been a huge leap forward is Invisalign SmartTrack™ technology and Digital Invisalign Scans. Enhance Dental proudly provides these technological breakthroughs at no extra Invisalign cost.
Invisalign no braces has become Enhance Dental’s most sought after treatment option
I have never looked back and now find with all the advances in Invisalign (clear braces), the decision between using metal braces, ceramic braces (porcelain braces), lingual braces, porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns or Invisalign is so much easier. Although we advise about all the above choices and certainly explain the advantages and disadvantages of every dental procedure to help you straighten your teeth or fix your bite, it seems that Invisalign has become the preferred choice for many patients. In fact Invisalign – clear braces is now the number one treatment at Enhance Dental that our dental patients now ask for. We are so confident that Invisalign may be a suitable alternative to braces, many of our patients are happy to show there before and after results at Enhance Dental’s Invisalign Gallery page.
Enhance Dental’s years of Experience with Invisalign is second to none
Invisalign certainly takes many years of experience to do it properly and to get excellent results, the company Align Technology has awarded Dr Joseph Paino at Enhance Dental “Elite Platinum provider” year after year. In a study titled “Braces versus Invisalign®: Gingival parameters and patients’ satisfaction during treatment: A cross-sectional” it was found the results patients treated with Invisalign® have a better periodontal(gum) health and greater satisfaction during orthodontic treatment than patients treated with braces. So why would you want braces when a technologically advanced, comfortable and discreet option is now available with greater patient satisfaction?
