Orthodontics as a branch of dentistry aims to improve the alignment of teeth within the mouth. As a general rule, orthodontics can address a variety of issues as well as aiming to straighten teeth, they can correct an overbite, or underbite, and can deal with poor jaw alignment. All of which can affect a patient’s dental and overall health. Invisalign is essentially one form of orthodontics using clear aligners, they are simply one make, but are the largest producer worldwide. Invisalign is used when correcting mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth.
Why choose Invisalign in Weybridge over any other form of orthodontics?
We find many individuals may choose to undergo this particular form of orthodontics due to their aesthetically pleasing appearance, in that they are almost invisible to the casual observer. Invisalign is unique in the way that there is a lack of metal brackets being used and they are simply a plastic customised aligner which fits snugly over the teeth. Invisalign may be preferred by individuals who have previously undergone orthodontics, they can be used as a ‘top up’ or a ‘refresher’ treatment. Individuals of all ages can choose to undergo Invisalign treatment. Some people who are older and want to exude a more professional persona and those younger individuals who may suffer from a lower level of self-esteem and confidence find these aligners very convenient. Having clear aligners for young adolescents and teens can help to eliminate some of the insecurities traditional metal braces may hold.
How does Invisalign in Weybridge work?
Invisalign works to produce the pleasing outcome provided by other forms of orthodontics. All forms of orthodontics are similar in the way that they all aim for the same result; straight teeth. These clear aligners are replaced every few weeks with a new set, each one designed to take the patient nearer their desired straightened teeth. At our dental clinic in Weybridge we take the impressions and moulds of your teeth, these are then sent off to Invisalign, we then receive their finalised and individualised clear aligners.
