Image is important to most of us and in the past, the look of braces and the thought of a mouth full of metal have been a barrier for many thinking about having orthodontic treatment. Now, thanks to innovative invisible braces, we can correct orthodontic imperfections without compromising your looks or the image you portray and nobody need know that you’re wearing braces. We are delighted to offer Invisalign treatment, which offers you the chance to undergo treatment in secret and achieve a beautiful smile with minimal hassle.
The ins and outs of Invisalign invisible braces
Invisalign has really changed the face of orthodontics and many people who were reluctant to have treatment in the past have found this a much more accessible and appealing option. Invisalign is different to conventional orthodontic treatments because it uses a series of appliances, known as aligners, rather than a single brace. Each patient is given a set of aligners, which are created based on their individual treatment plan. This plan is drawn up using state of the art software and it plots the movement of the teeth. Each aligner is slightly different and there is a set order to follow.
The beauty of Invisalign aligners is that they are virtually invisible. They are made from clear plastic and there are no unsightly metal parts. When the aligner is in place, it is undetectable, so you won’t have to worry about hiding your smile away or contending with comments or looks from others.
The treatment process
The treatment process for Invisalign is slightly different to that of fixed braces, as you wear a series of aligners. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and then you swap them over until you reach the end of the sequence. Although the aligners are removable, it’s important that they remain in place for a minimum of 21-22 hours per day to ensure the best results. You can take your aligners out to eat, drink and clean your teeth and this makes it very easy to maintain good oral hygiene and keep decay at bay.
