Associate Professor Vaughan has been recognised as going even above and beyond this level, and was appointed Associate Professor of Orthodontics at James Cook University – where he teaches other dentists how to perform orthodontic treatments.
Invisalign is a style of clear aligner, which are similar to braces in that they move teeth, but do not require brackets or wires to be glued to the teeth. They are more aesthetic, more comfortable, and can be removed to eat or brush your teeth – all great advantages! You can also take them out entirely for special occasions, and most people will not notice you’re wearing them. They can be used to treat minor crowding or aligning problems in as little as 3 to 9 months.
However, Invisalign is not suitable for all teeth or for all crowding problems. The more severe the case, typically the less suitable clear aligners are for solving the problem.
