Want to know more about Invisalign? Five things you didn't know about word famous invisible braces
Fed up with being the only person at work with crooked teeth? Want to improve your smile and boost your confidence without drawing attention to yourself? Read on!
As a child, it was hard to understand the benefits of a brace; after all, there was probably a child at your school who had an orthodontic brace and sadly everyone made fun of them for it.
As an adult, you are probably wishing you could go back in time and get that brace fitted, but may be worried that it is too late. Luckily, you are wrong.
Many adults undertake orthodontic treatments and as dentistry has advanced, orthodontic options have become more visually subtle and have a faster treatment time.
At Boston Orthodontics, we are happy to be able to offer our adult and teenage patients invisible braces in Wimpole Street; the world famous Invisalign. Our dental team are specially trained to use this advanced aligner and its accompanying software, so you can feel confident that you are getting the highest level of expert care.
But why should you try invisible braces in Wimpole Street?
As the name suggests, Invisalign is barely noticeable to the naked eye.
When you try these invisible braces in Wimpole Street, you will not have to hide your smile or shy away from the camera; they are extremely discreet and are therefore perfect for adult and teenage patients, who may be concerned about their appearance.
As an adult, you don’t want to be taking on any uncomfortable treatments that will impact on your day to day life.
Luckily, Invisalign contains no metal and is made from a durable, but malleable plastic. It fits over your teeth like a sports guard and does not cause any uncomfortable friction against your gum line or inner cheeks. Also, for Invisalign to work to its full potential, you will need to wear it to bed, so you can rest assured that this aligner is comfortable enough to sleep in.
There is a common misconception that even with modern dental techniques, you will be wearing any brace or aligner for years on end.
One of the benefits of Invisalign is its fast turnaround time; at Boston Orthodontics, many of our wearers of this brace complete treatment in as little as six months, but this depends entirely on your clinical presentation.
Though the idea of an un-customised brace is odd, when our dentists at Boston Orthodontics discuss customised braces, we are talking about more than just fitting over the teeth.
Each Invisalign user has a set of aligners during their treatment, each designed for a different phase of the realignment, so you will have no unnecessary pressure or discomfort.
And last, but certainly not least, Invisalign braces are removable, meaning you can take them out to brush your teeth and eat your favourite foods without causing them damage.
This also allows you to maintain better oral hygiene throughout treatment, as it does not cause plaque accumulation or decay.
