No more metal tracks & pulleys for beautiful smiles

August 25, 2011

Many of us recall the memories…. Teeny tiny elastics stretched into the back of our mouths around the metal casings that were straightening our teeth.. yes those good ole braces evoke many memories, particularly the day they came off!
With all the progress in technology were not surprised that it reached teeth straightening. Yesterday we saw a presentation by Invisalign and marvelled at the clear plastic guard that sits around the teeth doing its magic, with no discomfort or self esteem issues!
Anthony from Bondi Rescue was there to show us how he is in treatment and we discovered that 93% of Australians surveyed by Invisalign believe there are benefits to having a nice smile.
This got me thinking… How important is it how your teeth look? is it yet another thing that we are concerned about? With 2 daughters I must say that I am pleased to know that if they need ortho work that technology is advancing for their generation.
Let us know what you think

    always worth an opinion from an orthadontist…apparently they werent suitable for me, so get a professional opinion. They are pretty expensive. Healthy teeth are imporntant

      We did talk to the guys about that and apparently as this is newish technology many dentists don’t have enough confidence or experience to treat all types of teeth mis-allignment. However, as the treatment becomes more widely used and accepted and confidence and training grows more people will be able to opt for this. I must say that we were both really impressed with this as it makes total sense and enables the person getting treated to just carry on with their life. They are expensive though which is a very big factor for most of us. It may be worth getting a second opinion if you really want to give it a go. Good luck!
