The benefits of using Invisalign aligners to straighten your teeth

Invisalign clear aligners are one of the most popular methods of teeth straightening at Surrey Braces dental centre, Weybridge. They can be used to correct a wide range of orthodontic concerns and have minimal impact on your lifestyle – in fact, your friends, family, and work colleagues may not even notice you are wearing them at all.

Whilst it’s true a lot of adult patients initially come to our Weybridge dental centre with concerns about the aesthetic appearance of their teeth, they are often pleased to discover there are health benefits to straightening their teeth, too.

Most dental health problems – tooth decay, gum disease, bad breath – are caused by inadequate hygiene practices. The problem with misaligned teeth is, no matter how good your oral hygiene routine, there are likely to be areas that it is hard if not impossible to clean properly at home. By straightening your teeth and reducing the number of areas in which dental plaque can build up, you can cut your risk of the aforementioned problems, and ultimately of tooth loss.

Weybridge Invisalign treatment

If you are interested in straightening your teeth with Invisalign, we invite you to join us at our Weybridge dental centre for a consultation. Your orthodontist will conduct a thorough clinical examination to determine whether Invisalign is the most appropriate treatment option to suit your needs and, so long as it is, will take impressions of your teeth for your aligners to be made.

Thanks to the advanced 3D digital software that comes with Invisalign, your orthodontist will be able to show you the predicted outcome of treatment before you start.

You will be prescribed the required series of aligners, which will fit comfortably over your teeth and gently guide them into an improved position. Treatment takes place in fortnightly increments, and you will need to pop in for a check-up at our Weybridge dental centre approximately once a month.

Invisalign is great for dental hygiene because you can take the aligners out to brush your teeth.
