While improved mouth function and oral health are main aims of orthodontic treatment, the impact of straight teeth has a far longer reach and stretches to include benefits to physical and psychosocial health. This is why we at Weybridge Orthodontics have set ourselves the particular focus of providing top quality orthodontic care and access to industry leading teeth straightening appliances such as Invisalign Weybridge.
Treatment plans centred on Invisalign Weybridge require the dental practitioner to receive further training in the use of the system as well as practical experience in overseeing successful treatments that produce desired outcomes. We have taken great care to ensure our dental practitioners fulfil these must-have qualities to make certain that our patients benefit from incomparable exemplary orthodontic care. We take a look at some of the reasons why Invisalign Weybridge enjoys such a fantastic reputation for straightening teeth and what factors are most important to consider when deciding on using a tray-based orthodontic system.
What sets tray-based orthodontics apart from conventional appliances
The glaringly obvious difference of aligner-like braces is the look of them. Unlike traditional metal appliances that need to be attached to the teeth and that require manual adjustments to be made by a dentist throughout the treatment plan, tray-based braces resemble aligners made of clear plastic and can be removed and reinserted effortlessly by the patient. What is more is that instead of a single device, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom made trays with each tray in the set specifically designed to manipulate teeth into the desired position in incremental degrees.
It is in this precise design that the teeth straightening system is able to produce its remarkable benefits that are found to be second to none. The advantages of using removable trays include the following:
The clear plastic trays remove the awkwardness of having to reveal the highly visible metal braces that have been the cause of embarrassment for many a patient! This discreet looking orthodontic appliance has encouraged many adult patients to seek treatment to improve the symmetry of their smiles that they otherwise would not have done if their only choice were fixed metal braces.
The fact that the tray-based braces can be removed works to another looked-for advantage – that of being able to eat a more varied diet. Patients on traditional orthodontic treatments are usually asked to refrain from eating certain foods that may damage the metal components.
To reap the benefits of such positives, patients will need to consider a few factors that apply to the removable braces system. Patients will need to be willing to be more disciplined in following all our dentist’s instructions in regards to the using of trays. In addition to this, the patient needs to be scrupulous in their oral hygiene practice.
