With your wedding coming up you’re considering ways to straighten your teeth and get the perfect wedding day smile! At Geelong Dental Group we are an accredited Invisalign Go provider and offer the clear removeable aligners as the perfect option for you. We have helped many of our patients get straighter teeth using Invisalign Go, with the shortest treatment being only 10 weeks.
First step is to come in for a consultation and an intraoral scan of your teeth. This scan enables us to work with Invisalign and create a simulation predicting how long your treatment will take. Once we get the final simulation back, usually within a few days we arrange a second consultation to go through it with you. If you’re happy with the results and want to go ahead we order the clear aligners which take approximately 2 weeks to manufacture and get delivered.
As soon as the aligners have arrived we will arrange for you to Invisalign Go is virtually invisible and gradually moves your teeth over time into the perfect Wedding Day Smile! Each week you are given a new retainer to switch out the old one.
Do I remove the aligners?
You are required to wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day. You should remove them to eat food, brush your teeth and floss.
What is the difference between Invisalign Go and traditional braces?
Invisalign Go is a set of clear aligners to straighten your teeth whereas braces give you a mouth full of metal wires and brackets. Invisalign Go is a more comfortable and better looking option!
Is Invisalign Go treatment painful?
Most people will feel a bit of discomfort for the first few days with each new set of Invisalign Go aligners. This is good because you want to feel a bit of tightness from the aligners, this means the aligners are doing what they are supposed to do: moving your teeth to the desired position, so of course you will feel a bit of pressure in the beginning. This slight discomfort is nothing compared to the pain caused by the metal wires of traditional braces.
Can I go to any dentist for Invisalign Go treatment?
How often do I need to wear my Invisalign Go clear aligners?
It depends on how good you want your result to be. We generally advise our patients to wear their Invisalign Go clear aligners for at least 20-22 hours a day. The aligners should only be removed for eating, brushing or flossing purposes.
Can I still indulge in my favourite food and drinks during my treatment period?
Of course! This is the beauty of the Invisalign Go clear aligner system compared to traditional braces, it works around your lifestyle rather than disrupts it. As long as you remove your Invisalign Go aligners before you eat and drink, you can continue to enjoy all the good things in life and wine and dine as you wish. However, to prevent bad breath and poor hygiene, it is advisable to brush and floss your teeth after every meal before inserting back your clear aligners.
Will my Invisalign Go aligners fall out by accident?
That would be very embarrassing, wouldn’t it? Don’t worry, your Invisalign Go aligners are custom-made for you only so they are designed to fit your teeth snugly. They will not fall out by accident when you talk, laugh or sleep.
