Invisalign clear braces on the Mornington Peninsula
Whatever your stage in life, there never been a better time to straighten your teeth with the most popular clear braces in the world.
With Dr Fady Goher now on the team, our Mornington dental practice is proud to be a certified provider of Invisalign clear aligners. Now we can give you a clear, convenient, and comfortable option to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
Dr Goher has training in both traditional braces plus modern clear orthodontics. His orthodontic knowledge, together with his background as a dental surgeon, means that he can help you make the best decision for the lifetime health of your teeth.
Why choose Invisalign treatment?
When you are considering orthodontics, your first thoughts are probably of a pimply teenager wearing metal brackets with an intricate array of wires. Although these are still the only viable option in some cases, for many others there is a less conspicuous alternative in Invisalign clear braces.
The advantages of Invisalign clear braces
Up to 50% faster treatment times
Invisalign offers weekly aligner changes compared to the fortnightly wear provided by some of our competitors.
The length of time may depend on your response to treatment, especially if you are a mature adult. Dr Goher will keep a close eye on your progress and may consider lengthier periods for the best results.
Advanced materials and orthodontic technology
The SmartTrack material and SmartForce attachments are clinically proven to improve control of tooth movement with Invisalign clear aligners.
Effective orthodontic treatment
Invisalign clear braces can treat a wide range of orthodontic conditions, including crooked teeth, crowding, open bites, gappy smiles, overbites, underbites and crossbites.
The Invisalign trays apply a constant, gentle force to the teeth.
The Invisalign clear aligner trays are smooth and comfortable to wear.
Aligners made from SmartTrack material are comfortable, fit well and are easy to put on and take off.
Virtually invisible braces
Most people won’t even notice that you are wearing the aligners because Invisalign braces are almost invisible.
Braces that allow you to live your life
Because they’re also removable, that means you can continue doing all the things you normally would, from brushing and flossing to eating whatever you like.
Convenient in a busy lifestyle
Treatment is ideal for your busy schedule since you only need to visit our practice every 6 weeks. An excellent solution if you live in Mount Martha or further down the Mornington Peninsula or have to travel south from Frankston or Mount Eliza.
The Invisalign Treatment Process
Your initial consultation
At your first consultation, we will discuss your orthodontic needs and evaluate whether Invisalign treatment is right for you.
We customise your treatment plan
We will use a 3D digital scanning system to create fast, precise 3D digital images of your teeth. From here we can map out a specific treatment plan just for you. We can predict the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will be.
You will even be able to see how your teeth will move, and we can show you a preview of your new smile.
Your begin wearing your Invisalign clear braces
You begin wearing your Invisalign clear aligners 20 to 22 hours a day for the best results, and take them out only to eat, brush, and floss.
You progress through the aligners
Your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place as you progress through each set of aligners. We recommend that you begin wearing a new set of aligners each week and schedule checkups every 6 weeks or so.
Retaining your new smile
Just like conventional braces, it is essential to wear a retainer following treatment to prevent the teeth from moving back into their old position.
When your treatment is complete, ask us about a Vivera retainer. Vivera retainers are custom-made using the same state-of-the-art technology as Invisalign clear aligners.
How to care for your teeth during Invisalign treatment
One of the significant advantages of Invisalign is the ability to remove the aligners for oral hygiene.
When using Invisalign, it is more important than ever, to brush and floss daily. Also, you will need to brush after every meal and even snacks to ensure food remnants are not trapped under the aligners. Trapped food could promote the formation of cavities and increase your risk of gum disease.
The aligners themselves also need cleaning regularly. Cleaning can be easily accomplished by simply brushing and rinsing them in lukewarm water.
