Braces are necessary when the teeth have become crooked or displaced. Crooked teeth can be more serious than just a cosmetic issue and can cause serious complications for your jaw alignment and function. Tooth erosion can also occur in areas that have a higher level of contact with other teeth and can therefore become susceptible to cavities and tooth decay.
Fixed braces are an excellent option for restoring crooked teeth to their natural state, however, they do carry some disadvantages. One of the main disadvantages of fixed braces is the association they have with being a teenager. Many teenagers undergo fixed brace treatment, as this is when their teeth are more malleable, and their adult teeth have all erupted, so they can be correctly aligned as soon as possible. Therefore, many adults can be averse to fixed brace treatment for this reason and avoid braces entirely. The intensity of braces can also be a deterrent, as many adults can think that their teeth are not crooked enough to justify fixed braces. A solution to these problems is Invisalign. Weybridge Orthodontics has a wide range of treatments that are committed to giving you the treatment that will give you the smile you deserve.
Invisalign is the answer to many of the problems and assumptions that fixed braces can bring up. Invisalign is only available to adults, as it is only effective on fully developed adult teeth, so any growth will render the treatment ineffective. Invisalign can also make extremely acute adjustments, so no matter how crooked your teeth are, you can use Invisalign. One of the key benefits of Invisalign, is that due to the transparent nature of the braces, it will be extremely difficult to tell that you are wearing Invisalign. Weybridge Orthodontics is committed to delivering the best possible service to you and making sure that you are informed at every step of the way. It is also important to us that you are as comfortable as possible, which means building up a rapport between dentist and patient, so that the treatments are as friendly and as comfortable as possible.
Beginning Invisalign Treatment
To begin Invisalign treatment you will first need a consultation about Invisalign in Weybridge, to assess your teeth and have a scan, as well as clear up any queries you might have about Invisalign treatment. Once scans have been taken, they will then be sent off, and a series of plastic braces will be specifically made for you. As opposed to regular braces being tightened and adjusted, Invisalign braces will simply be replaced. This will happen approximately every two weeks, and your dentist will be able to assess your progress and steps with the treatment.
Invisalign is also beneficial in that they can be easily removed, which means you are free to drink and eat whatever you want to. If you are looking for Invisalign in Weybridge, then we have all the facilities available for the treatment. Book a consultation with us if you would like to find out more.
