Glenferrie Orthodontics is excited to have Dr Vicki Vlaskalic join our team to offer Invisalign treatment. Invisalign offers an alternative to conventional braces. It is a series of clear plastic aligners worn under the supervision of your doctor. The streamlined design of Invisalign means it is often difficult to notice.
Using a light based scan to create a 3D digital model of YOUR teeth, a computer program allows the doctor and Invisalign technicians to create the ideal tooth alignment and occlusion for the patient.
Once aligners are delivered, good COMPLIANCE is essential to ensure tooth movement occurs as engineered in the aligners. Aligners must be worn 20 to 22 hours daily, removed for eating, cleaning and the occassional social event! We provide specific instructions, an aligner "chewie" and regular monitiring visits to ensure movement occurs according to the program. Each aligner is worn for 1- 2 weeks, and the new aligner is inserted at night for maximum effectiveness. The aligner movement is conservative, a maximum of 0.25mm per aligner is programmed.
If you would like to find out if Invisalign is suitable for you please contact our office to schedule a time to discuss your treatment options with Dr Vicki.
