Do you have crooked teeth? Embarrassing, but treatable with invisible braces
Crooked, protruding or misaligned teeth are more than a minor nuisance; they can seriously impact on your confidence, especially if you are either a social butterfly or you have a high-powered career that requires a lot of smiling.
Many people assume that when an adult has a minor misalignment of their teeth, there is nothing that can be done to correct it. However, as modern dentistry has progressed, more options for teeth straightening have emerged across the UK, including the increasingly popular braces Invisalign in Bedfordshire.
There are many reasons to opt for the world famous Invisalign but here are the top 5 reasons according to previous wearers.
The one thing there is never enough of in society! Many adults are aware that they would benefit from a correction of their misaligned teeth, but instantly assume that this would mean undertaking treatment with the traditional, orthodontic brace.
Invisible braces work significantly faster than traditional ones, with the average treatment time being around 12 months, so no time is wasted when it comes to straightening your teeth.
Another benefit of using an invisible aligner is that the majority of them are removable. While some clear braces are fixed to the teeth with brackets, many invisible braces are made of a flexible, clear plastic, which is designed to sit comfortably over your teeth, for about 20 hours per day.
An advantage of this is the ability to remove them when you are eating, drinking or brushing your teeth. No hygiene issues have been reported from the use of invisible aligners and they are suitable for every lifestyle.
We all remember that one friend at high school who wore orthodontic braces and was forever complaining of a dull ache. This is because the mechanism underlying traditional braces involves pulling the teeth into a new position with the aid of the traditional ‘tightening.’
Invisible and clear aligners work differently; using a system of opposing coils, the braces gently push your teeth into their new position, using minimal force. This is a much more comfortable option and as your aligners are custom fitted to your teeth, there should be no uncomfortable rubbing against your inner cheeks.
In today’s modern world, predictability may be seen as boring, but not when it comes to straightening your teeth!
Before the aligner is fitted, a member of your dental team will be able to show you each step of the aligner treatment using advanced computer technology, so you will not be in the dark about any step.
Invisible aligners are invisible to the naked eye; even your closest friends won’t know you are having your teeth straightened unless you point it out to them! This gives many wearers a great boost!
To summarise, invisible aligners are a great way to straighten your teeth and offer you the discretion and comfort not found with any other type of aligner. Call your dentist for more information to help you get the smile you are looking for.
