Orthodontic dentistry is getting more and more advanced with time. As Invisalign providers in London we have seen the evolution of the system in the past decade. We are now able to straighten very complex cases with these aligners with amazing results! Invisalign is one of the most popular teeth straightening methods in the present times.
What attracts people to Invisalign?
According to dentists associated with modern teeth straightening using Invisalign, people want to straighten their teeth but want to avoid wearing metal braces in their mouth that draws unwanted attention to their smile. That is why conventional teeth straightening procedures using wires and brackets are steadily losing demand.
Invisalign treatment offers clear, custom-made retainers made of plastic. You can easily take the transparent retainers off at any time to enjoy your foods and drinks, partake in any sporting event or clean your teeth. It is important that you remember to wear it back as early as possible for timely and expected results.
How the aligners work?
Once you have made up your mind to go for the invisible or invisalign way to straighten your teeth, your Invisalign dentist will take photographs, scans and xrays of your teeth using high-end 3D software and latest range of scanners. Armed with these tools, our dentists will draw a Personalised treatment plan based on the condition of the teeth, your dental and facial anatomy and your expectations from the treatment.
Dentists at Invisalign braces in London have noticed that unlike its conventional alternatives, clear braces treatment causes minimal interference with your lifestyle. This is one of the major reasons behind its overwhelming popularity.
Based on the 3D imaging of your teeth, custom-made aligners are prepared at Align Tech lab that fit perfectly in your mouth. These aligners provide the necessary calculative force to move your teeth to the desired position inside your mouth. Usually, you will wear each set of aligners for about 1 week. Then you move on to the next pair of aligners in the set.
Invisalign offers numerous benefits. They remain discreet inside your mouth. The transparent plastic aligners are designed in such a way so that people can hardly notice you are wearing them.
Conventional metal braces restrict your diet and lifestyle to a great extent. Invisalign allows you eat and drink anything while undergoing the treatment. Just take out the plastic aligners for the time so that you can enjoy foods and drinks normally. It is advised to have them in for 20 to 22 hours per day.
Maintaining optimal oral hygiene with fixed metal braces is an uphill task. Brushing and flossing the teeth is practically impossible once these braces are attached to your teeth. Invisalign allows you maintain optimum dental hygiene through normal brushing and flossing every day.
Is invisalign painful?
Just like other orthodontic braces, you are likely to experience some discomfort initially after placing the aligners. This discomfort is expected because it means that the aligners are putting pressure to your teeth to move them to their desired positions.
Am I the right candidate for Invisalign?
Unfortunately, Invisalign treatment is not suitable for everyone. Experienced dentists associated with the Adult Braces Clinic in London explain that people with extreme problems are not suitable for this cutting-edge teeth straightening treatment.
