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.
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Twisted teeth
- Misaligned teeth
Why are crowded teeth problematic?Crowded teeth can make your smile look unattractive but they can also increase your risk of developing dental diseases. This is because it is often very difficult to clean all the surfaces of the teeth when they are pushed up against each other. If you’re not happy with the look of your smile, it can also affect your confidence, especially when you’re around other people. Dental treatment creates more attractive smiles, boosts confidence and enables you to eat and clean your teeth without any trouble at all.
What can be done for crowded teeth?Orthodontic treatment is the best course of action for crowded teeth and today there are all kinds of amazing treatments available. Crowding is a common problem that usually results from a lack of space in the jaw. Braces help to reposition the teeth, create more space and align the teeth perfectly. The range of options available to you will depend largely on the severity of the crowding. In minor cases, aligners and fixed braces may be viable, while in complex cases, fixed braces are usually the best option. In some cases of crowding, it might be necessary to remove some of the teeth before the braces are fitted, as this creates space for the teeth to move. Your dentist will go through your options and the treatment processes when you have your consultation.
The benefits of orthodontic treatmentOrthodontic treatment is designed to benefit those with issues that affect the alignment of the teeth, the relationship between the upper and lower sets of teeth and the jaw joint (this is known as the bite). As well as producing beautiful, straight smiles, orthodontic treatment also helps to increase confidence, improve speech, reduce the risk of oral health problems and improve the overall facial aesthetic. Nowadays, treatments are faster, more discreet and more effective than ever before and there is a wide range of treatment options available to patients of all ages.
