Are you self-conscious about your smile but reluctant to wear braces because of cosmetic reasons? For some people, a less than perfect smile is nothing to worry about, but for others it can knock their self-esteem. As an adult, you may have put off teeth straightening treatment because you can’t face the thought of months in a row wearing metal braces, or perhaps you feel the costs cannot be justified.
That is why, here at Weybridge Orthodontics, we offer Invisalign – an affordable, safe, and effective alternative to metal braces, which has minimal impact on your lifestyle.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign employs 3D computer technology to create transparent, plastic removable aligners. These move your teeth at a rate similar to traditional braces, but without any metal or wires. The invisible braces are entirely custom-made and can be removed to eat and clean your teeth.
Invisalign aligners are made of transparent plastic, so they are generally unnoticeable when worn. Using computer imaging technology, your dentist in Weybridge can develop a personalised treatment plan for you to shift your teeth into the necessary positions and give you back confident smile. based This imaging technology helps create your series of custom-made aligners, which have to be worn for about 2 weeks, before being replaced by the next in the series.
Although each case is unique, the usual treatment plan for adults who opt for Invisalign in Weybridge typically lasts for a year, using an average of 18 to 30 aligner trays throughout the treatment.
Am I eligible for Invisalign?
Generally, Invisalign is suitable for most patients with healthy teeth and gums. Invisalign can correct common dental issues such as crooked teeth, gappy and crowded teeth, as well as misaligned bites. However if you need to correct more severe jaw problems, your Weybridge dentist will likely recommend another treatment option.
Ideally, patients who pursue Invisalign should have good self-discipline. Invisalign is removable, but to work effectively, the aligners must be worn between 20 and 22 hours per day.
