I was lucky enough to recently be invited to be a delegate at the Asia Pacific Invisalign Summit 2018, held at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. Not only was this a chance to learn about all the exciting innovations in technology and techniques that Invisalign has to offer, but a chance to stay at the amazing Marina Bay Sands.
How could I say no?
The theme of the Summit was Technology Moves Us, focusing on new advancements in the Smart Track material that Invisalign has designed and implemented, and the broad range of new applications for Invisalign aligners. “Digitally driven dentistry”.
In short, Invisalign creates virtually invisible braces. Your Brisbane Smile Boutique dentist will take some very detailed impressions, or moulds, of your teeth. From these impressions, a highly sophisticated computer programme, along with your dentist, will design the ideal bite and smile position for your teeth to finish in. Using this result, the same computer software fabricates a series of braces or “aligners” that you will wear, moving your teeth a small amount each time you change your aligners.
What I learned from the conference is how many more applications we can now use Invisalign for. So many more patients may now be great candidates for Invisalign, even teenagers. If you have ever wanted to change your bite, move that particular tooth, or show off your smile more, contact us today to see if Invisalign may be suitable for you!
PS I did get some time off while in Singapore and went to visit the gorgeous and super cute panda bears. They certainly made me smile! 🐼
