Invisalign: a discreet method of teeth straightening for adults

A large proportion of the adult population are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth, and straighter teeth are up there as one of the top smile wish list items. Thanks to the advent of discreet orthodontic devices such as Invisalign, a dentist or orthodontist can now straighten your teeth subtly. Join us at Weybridge dental practice Surrey Braces to find out how this treatment has helped scores of patients, and how you could be next.

teeth-straighteningIt is a bit of a misnomer to refer to discreet orthodontic devices as purely cosmetic. Of course, the aesthetic gains are what most people will notice first, but at our Weybridge dental centre we are keen to stress that there are numerous additional health benefits to be gained from such treatments as Invisalign.

One of the key points a dentist will give for adult teeth straightening is that straighter teeth are easier to keep clean. When teeth are poorly aligned, gappy, crooked, or crowded, it is easier for food particles to get trapped and for plaque bacteria to build up.

Even with good dental hygiene at home, you are likely to struggle to clean these areas efficiently, which can lead to dental decay and gum disease. By using Invisalign to better align your teeth, you make them easier to clean.

If you have front teeth that protrude (stick out), they are naturally more likely to be damaged, broken, or even lost through accident or injury. A trip or fall in which the first part of your body to hit the ground is your teeth could be very painful, and very damaging indeed. At our Weybridge dental clinic Invisalign is just one of the options for treating protruding front teeth.

Sometimes, a clinician will recommend orthodontic treatment before other cosmetic procedures, such as the placement of crowns or dental implants. In some cases, Invisalign can be beneficial to older patients whose teeth have drifted due to gum disease or tooth loss.

At Surrey Braces in Weybridge, we believe you are never too old to enjoy the benefits of teeth straightening treatment. Why not join us for an Invisalign consultation?
