Invisalign: a tooth-straightening treatment to fit around your lifestyle

Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that enables your dentist/orthodontist to realign your teeth with minimal impact on your lifestyle. At Weybridge clinic Surrey Braces we believe that, whenever possible, dental treatment should fit around the patient, which is why we are pleased to offer a number of discreet teeth straightening treatments.

tooth-straighteningOrthodontics isn’t just for children and teenagers. At our Weybridgedental centre we are seeing an increasing demand from adults for teeth straightening treatment. It could be that you didn’t have the chance to have your teeth straightened in your youth, or you may have experienced adult relapse – in which your teeth shift back to their original position after treatment is complete.

A lot of adults face a conundrum: they wish that they had straighter teeth, but they are reluctant to wear obvious metal braces. That’s where discreet treatments, including Invisalign, come in.

At Surrey Braces in Weybridge we are always keen to point out that teeth straightening treatment is never just about aesthetics. It is easier to keep well-aligned teeth clean, because there are fewer gaps for food particles to get trapped in and for plaque and tartar to build up. Choosing to straighten your teeth, whatever your age, is an obvious boon for your dental health, and can have a positive impact on your general health, too.

Invisalign can be used to correct a wider range of problems than standard cosmetic braces. Treatment takes place in fortnightly increments; your dentist or orthodontist will prescribe you the required series of aligners and you will need to change them every two weeks as your teeth start to move.

Two huge benefits of Invisalign treatment are that the aligners are both clear – so invisible to the untrained eye – and removable, meaning they have next to no impact on your day-to-day life.
