Straighten Teeth with Invisalign

If you are unhappy with your crooked teeth or gaps in your teeth, Invisalign could be a convenient solution.


The popular teeth straightening system is one of Dr Cull's favourite dental services. It is a modern alternative to traditional metal braces and provides a more straightforward treatment that has some great benefits. Read more about Invisalign here.


What is Invisalign?

Invisalign® treatment uses a series of clear plastic removable orthodontic aligners to gently move your teeth in small increments.


For the best results, Invisalign clear aligners are to be worn 20 to 22 hours a day.


Each aligner is slightly different, you’ll wear a set of aligners for one to two weeks or as prescribed by your dentist, before moving onto the next set.


Invisalign products are clear plastic liners customised to fit your teeth. The liners push your teeth into alignment by applying just enough pressure to move them gradually without causing discomfort.


You may feel a bit of pressure on your teeth at first, but it is far from painful, and you will quickly get used to the feeling.



How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign uses advanced 3D software technology, that will allow you to see the end results of your treatment before you even decide on starting treatment.

Invisalign treatments can take anywhere from a few months to 12 months to create your new, beautiful smile.




The length of your treatment will be determined by the state of your teeth, but most people will require 3 or 4 liners over 6 to 12 months to get the best results.


Things You Should Know Before Getting Invisalign

It's always good to know what to expect with any dental treatment, like Invisalign®. Here are a few things to be aware of before you make your first appointment:

  • Most people do not have discomfort or pain

  • Invisalign Aligners should be removed while eating and drinking

  • You will go through several sets of liners

  • Retainers will likely be required after your treatment

If you have been thinking about your teeth straightening options, but don’t want metal braces, consider booking an Invisalign consultation. Want to know if Invisalign will work for you, Dr Cull can tell you if you are a good fit for the treatment.


Improve Your Smile with Dental Implants

Missing teeth are an embarrassment most people would rather live without. Gaps in your teeth can also lead to serious dental health issues.

Dental implants are an excellent solution for improving your dental health for many reasons. Dr Mark Cull has many years experience placing dental implants.


What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a high-tech tooth replacement. An implant mimics a natural tooth by using a titanium "root" to support a dental crown.


A dental crown is the “tooth” part of a dental implant or the part that you see. The replacement looks and feels just like a real tooth and will last a lifetime if it’s well cared for.


Why Get a Dental Implant?

As we mentioned above, missing teeth and gaps in your teeth can lead to dental issues. A gap can harbour food particles that are hard to remove with regular brushing and can lead to cavities and tooth decay of the teeth surrounding the gap.


Plus, the missing tooth gives your other teeth room to move out of alignment.


Eating with a missing tooth can take some getting used to. You will find yourself favouring one side of your mouth, which causes uneven chewing and excessive wear and tear of the teeth on the favoured side.


Bite strength stays the same when you lose a tooth, which means the pressure is spread over fewer teeth. A bite force that is spread over fewer teeth may increase the risk of fractures.


A missing tooth can also cause bone loss in your jawbone, making it critical you replace a missing tooth as soon as possible.


Dental implants restore natural balance to your mouth and make caring for your teeth a lot less complicated. Are you tired of not being able to eat what you want? Are you looking forward to having beautiful teeth and confidence in your smile?


What You Should Know Before Getting Dental Implants

As with most dental treatments, not everyone is a suitable candidate for implants, but your Gympie dentist can let you know for sure after a consultation. Here are a few things about dental implants that can help you decide if they are right for you:

  • Dental implants look and function like real teeth

  • They prevent further deterioration of your remaining teeth

  • Dental implants can last a lifetime with good care

  • Bone grafts are not always necessary

  • Due to extensive planning, dental experience, dental training and equipment we have very little issues with our implants.

  • Unlike dentures, dental implants are surprisingly low maintenance
