Den's Dental Blog

Hello! My name is Den. This blog is going to cover a range of dental topics. I am not a dentist or a dental nurse but I have recently undergone a lot of dental treatment. This treatment has given me a great insight into the world of dentistry and I would like to share everything I have learnt with you here. Last year, I developed terrible pain in my mouth. I was diagnosed with severe tooth decay. The dentist removed the problem teeth and then inserted false ones in their place. He also whitened my teeth to improve my smile. I hope you find my blog useful.

Why More And More Older Australians Are Turning To Invisalign

by Myrtle Banks

The trend of people seeking orthodontic treatments has been on the rise in recent years. However, what has been particularly notable is the increase in the number of older Australians opting for Invisalign. This treatment has become quite popular for those who are looking for a discreet and comfortable way to improve their smile. If you or someone you know is looking for a way to get their teeth into a more comfortable position without any drastic surgeries, then here are a few reasons you should consider Invisalign.

Easy To Conceal

For a lot of older Australians there simply wasn't money or the availability of orthodontics back in their youth, and many were too embarrassed to try and get braces when they became adults and had their own money. That has led to quite a few older Australians living with crooked teeth that can be fixed with a simple treatment plan created by an Invisalign specialist. The best part is that it is very hard for people to see Invisalign when you are wearing it, hence the name. There are no embarrassing questions or awkward moments, just a way to get your teeth straighter than they've ever been.

More Comfortable

Comfort is a major consideration for many older Australians when choosing an orthodontic treatment. Traditional braces can cause irritation, with brackets and wires often rubbing against the cheeks and gums. Invisalign aligners, on the other hand, are made from a smooth, comfortable material that does not irritate the mouth. The aligners are also custom-fit to each patient, ensuring a comfortable and precise fit. This makes it an ideal option for older patients who have more sensitive gums and are looking for a comfortable, pain-free orthodontic solution.

Very Effective

Invisalign is a highly effective orthodontic treatment that can achieve the desired results in a shorter period of time compared to traditional braces. The aligners are custom-fit to each patient, as mentioned above, ensuring a precise and effective treatment every single time. The clear aligners gently move the teeth into the desired position, resulting in a straighter, more attractive smile. This makes it an ideal option for older Australians who are looking for a quick and effective solution to improve their smile and don't want to wait years that braces would take to achieve similar results (if braces even could!).
