If your teeth are only mildly to moderately out of alignment, say a couple of twisted teeth or a bit of a lean in or out, do you really want to have to wear metal braces on them? The cure seems worse than the problem when the person most conscious of your mild alignment issues is you. Why make everyone notice your wonky teeth when only a few ever commented in the first place?
There may be no need to get metal braces fixed to your teeth at all. If you come into Weybridge Orthodontics and let our highly trained dentists take a look at your alignment issues, it could well be that the best, and most discreet, way to correct them is with Invisalign in Weybridge.
If you have never seen or heard of Invisalign in Weybridge this is probably because these clear plastic aligners are almost invisible when they are in place over the teeth. You’re not going to spot anyone wearing them in the supermarket or on the bus.
What is Invisalign in Weybridge?
Off your teeth, Invisalign clear aligners look like very thin clear plastic mouth guards. The plastic is only 0.3mm thick and it is transparent. The aligners are made from digital scans of your teeth, so they fit exactly, like a second layer of enamel over your teeth.
You receive a series of these 3D printed aligners. You start at number one. When you put it on over your teeth, you will notice that it presses, and feels a bit uncomfortable. These are the built-in pressure points in action, pressing on your teeth to get them to move. Over the next 7-10 days, bone in your jaw will be dissolved to relieve the pressure by your tooth, and built up again behind it. Once the pressure has completely worn off and your aligner feels like it fits properly, it’s time to move onto the next one, which will feel uncomfortable as slightly different pressure points nudge your teeth along the path to correct alignment.
