Newwave Orthodontics on the Sunshine Coast has inspired 2 smiles this last year with the help of Invisalign
Our first patient was a 48 year old woman who was concerned with her smile due to a large crossbite and crooked teeth as seen below.
As you can see from the ‘before’ images of our patient she experienced a sloped structure of the teeth and protruding front teeth due to her crossbite. Her bottom teeth seemed to be slanted obscurely and some of her upper teeth were buckled behind her bottom teeth.
It was clear to us that this patient’s crossbite required treatment as it impeded the aesthetics of her smile as well as her jaw function when chewing and speaking. Her solution involved undergoing Invisalign clear aligner treatment with Newwave Orthodontics in Caloundra for 12 months. Invisalign treatment involves a series of 18 or more clear aligners which are fitted to your teeth and designed to induce gradual movement and improvement of crooked teeth. In this case they also worked to improve a crossbite, although Invisalign can also be used to improve overbites and underbites which can hinder the function of the jaw.
As you can see by the results, the Invisalign treatment totally corrected her crossbite and resulted in a substantial improvement in the protrusion of the two front teeth which is completely unnoticeable.
Our second patient was a 15 year old girl who visited our practice on the Sunshine Coast with mild protrusion in her top teeth which affected her self-esteem and confidence. As you can see in the photos below she also suffered from large spacing between most of her upper teeth.
In order to improve this spacing and her protrusion our qualified orthodontist recommended Invisalign. This highly sought-after and reliable treatment worked gradually over an 11 month period to close her gaps and mend the protrusion which is completely unnoticeable in the result photograph below. She is so happy and confident with the result that she has even entered Miss World!
Invisalign is a cohesive and versatile orthodontic treatment which can be used to aid a number of oral concerns including crooked teeth, small to larger gaps between teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites and protruding teeth. The treatment has been performed on over 2 million patients worldwide and it involves gradual pressure and strict dedication if you wish to see superlative and long-lasting results. In most cases Invisalign can be used instead of traditional braces which are considered unsightly and inconvenient by a lot of our patients due to their bulky brackets and wires.
