Straighten teeth without braces

Patients are often concerned that once they hit a certain age, orthodontic treatment is no longer an option. The general consensus is that having braces over your smile looks unprofessional, but having straight teeth has a number of benefits for career development and even relationship development – according to a study carried out by Kelton in the US.

Clear Aligners Sunshine Coast

Our elite orthodontist, Dr Peter Miles, was one of the very first providers of Invisalign in QLD. With his extensive knowledge, Dr Miles will be able to discuss the clear aligner treatment and process with you in depth. By using our own Cadent iTero digital impression system, we can take a highly accurate virtual impression of your smile, meaning no more messy dental moulds! This system allows Dr Miles to submit your digital scan directly to the laboratory where they will manufacture your aligners.

Why should I choose clear aligner treatment?

Clear aligners use clear, medical-grade plastic aligner trays that are completely customised to your smile which means they are comfortable, virtually undetectable and lifestyle-friendly. These aligners are worn for around two weeks after which Dr Miles will give you brand new aligners to continue treatment. Often Dr Miles will give you your new aligners in advance to ensure a convenient and cost-effective solution. Your clear aligners are also completely removable, which means you can:

  • Maintain your regular oral health routine every day
  • Be camera-ready for special events
  • Be confident throughout that big business meeting

It is important to note that your level of compliance throughout treatment will impact greatly on your overall end result.

How clear aligner systems work

Dr Peter Miles at Newwave Orthodontics uses advanced 3D imaging software to customise the aligners to suit your smile. Using a series of trays, the treatment works by gently moving the teeth into your desired position.

Generally the trays will be upgraded on a fortnightly basis. For the treatment to be time efficient and effective, you’ll need to wear your aligners day and night. You can remove the aligners for eating and brushing your teeth but it is important that you wear your aligners as often as Dr Miles recommends.

Who is suitable for clear aligner treatment?

For patients who exhibit less complex orthodontic problems like misaligned or crooked teeth, clear aligners may be the appropriate solution.  If you have more complex jaw or bite alignment concerns, clear aligner treatment may not be the most appropriate treatment for you. During your clear aligner consultation, Dr Miles will assess your smile and diagnose your condition for you to ensure you are choosing the best solution for your concerns.

Dr Peter Miles has been using Invisalign since its inception and is very experienced in discerning its suitability for individuals.

Clear aligners use cutting edge technology to work as invisible braces

Instead of using traditional braces, clear aligner technology sits over the dental arches just like a typical mouthguard. These aligners are completely transparent and are custom made to your or your child’s smile for a comfortable fit and virtually invisible appearance.

Clear aligners are also virtually invisible, removable for ease with oral health and maintenance, lifestyle friendly and requires no tightening visits!

Blending dental science with the subtle beauty of art, Dr Miles uses the latest in technology, techniques and evidence-based clinical orthodontics to ensure you receive the best results.
