If you never had the chance to straighten your teeth as a teenager, teeth straightening can offer many advantages to your smile. However, not that many adults are happy about wearing metal brackets and wires due to cosmetic and other practical concerns. Well, we’ve got news for you. You can now straighten your teeth invisibly by taking advantage of adult teeth straightening options, specifically created for self-conscious adults.
At Weybridge Orthodontics, we use Invisalign to help you straighten your teeth without compromising on the rest of your appearance and lifestyle. Invisalign in Weybridge offers a safe, effective and invisible alternative to metal braces.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign is an innovative approach to teeth straightening. Your Weybridge dentist will provide you with a series of custom-made, transparent, plastic aligners to help move your teeth into their right position over a specific period of time. Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth and unlike metal braces they do not cause any irritation or sensitivity on your gums.
Wearing the aligners for at least two weeks before moving to the next set in the series, will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist has planned for you. Treatment with Invisalign can last anywhere between 12 to 18 months, although each patient case is unique.
Advantages of Invisalign
Invisalign advantages are clear, making Invisalign ideal while you go on with your life. Invisalign aligners are also removable. This means that – unlike braces – they can be taken out to eat and drink whatever you want without having to worry about hard, chewy and sticky foods. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would. However, you must remember to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours per day for effective treatment. Invisalign aligners are very comfortable and do not cause any irritation to your mouth the way traditional braces potentially would.
And no matter how old you are and what stage you’re at in life, you will greatly appreciate the minimal interference of Invisalign in your life.
