Braces have come a long way in recent years. Today patients are able to benefit from the amazing teeth straightening effects of braces without worrying about visible wires and brackets embarrassing them during treatment.
One of the most innovative and popular brace treatments is Invisalign, favoured by celebrities and dentists alike.
What are Invisalign braces?
Invisalign braces are made from clear plastic material and fit over your teeth. Your Invisalign treatment will involve several sets of clear aligners, with a new aligner used every two weeks. Every aligner is slightly different in shape, so gently ease your teeth into their new straighter position. Your aligners will be custom made from impressions of your teeth to ensure that you receive the very best treatment and results from your braces.
What are the main benefits of Invisalign braces?
There are a number of positive benefits of Invisalign treatment, including:
- Completely clear, so treatment is very discreet
- Braces are removable, so you can eat and drink normally, as well as being able to clean your teeth properly.
- Highly effective, yet gentle for easier treatment.
What can Invisalign braces treat?
Invisalign can treat a whole range of orthodontic problems, including:
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Twisted teeth
- Misaligned teeth
Straight teeth are not only attractive, they also have added health benefits. This is because plaque and dental bacteria are less likely to become trapped between straight teeth. Crooked teeth, however, have crooks and crevices, which are a perfect place for debris and bacteria to hide. This can lead to decay and gum disease, so straighter teeth can actually help maintain the health of your teeth as well as looking attractive.
