What is Invisalign, and why is it such a preferred method to straighten teeth? Visit our clinic, Weybridge Orthodontics and we will provide you with the information you need to decide whether this groundbreaking treatment suits your needs and whether it will give you the smile you have always wanted.
What draws people to Invisalign in Weybridge?
People want straight teeth and the perks that come along with it: fact. What people do not want, especially adults is to wear metal on their mouth for a prolonged period that draws unwanted attention from their peers.
You will not experience the above wearing clear, custom-made Invisalign retainers. Carry on with your life unhindered by your straightening aid. Even enjoy a few hours retainer free while you eat, clean your teeth and play sports – just remember to put it back afterwards for effective results.
How to these aligners work?
Once you have decided that Invisalign in Weybridge is right for you, our orthodontist will take photographs of your mouth using a state-of-the-art scanner that produces thousands of dental impressions in seconds.
With these, we will draw up a treatment plan that outlines the series of movements your teeth need to make. Each set of trays must be replaced every two weeks, which will slowly, bit by bit, move your teeth into their final desired position.
You can benefit in many ways by using Invisalign. First and foremost is their discreet appearance, which will appeal to image-conscious adults and teenagers alike.
As an adult, you can maintain your professionalism and straighten your teeth at the same time. The aligners are made from plastic, so most people will not know that you are wearing them.
Do you have nightmares about eating salads with braces and having the bits of your meal unknowingly stuck to your metal? Being able to take out your invisible braces while you eat eliminates the possibility of this happening.
Brushing your teeth will not require you to clean between your wires where plaque build up is likely to gather because you will not have to change your cleaning habits in the slightest. Keep to your regular brushing and flossing routine.
Will I experience pain?
Like any other orthodontic device, you will experience some discomfort when you replace your aligners. This is because these aligners are placing pressure on your teeth to adjust to a new position – you are bound to feel some tenderness.
Unfortunately, not everyone is a candidate for Invisalign. If you are someone with a severe bite problem, invisible braces are not likely to be the best fit for you. As such, these invisible braces are restricted in what they can achieve, so only those with mild to moderate issues that are relatively straightforward to fix are suitable for a straightening aid of this kind.
Come to us, and we will examine your mouth and assess whether Invisalign at Weybridge Orthodontics can help you. If not, there are several alternatives worth considering that are still better than conventional methods.
