What are Invisible Braces?
Updated: Apr 9
Invisible Braces Wimpole Street are a breakthrough solution to straightening your teeth without the need for those unsightly metal ‘train track’ braces. This revolutionary treatment offers you a unique way of achieving the desired results you are looking for in a shorter amount of time, with the added benefit of being completely removable and almost invisible to your friends and work colleagues.
Why choose Invisalign treatment?
Boston Orthodontics is proud to offer Invisible braces or, to use the correct term; Invisalign. This new treatment is a highly favourable option for many people, especially those with professional careers or work around other people, as it has a much shorter treatment time and greatly reduces the impact of the treatment on everyday life. You can expect to achieve the results you are looking for in as little as 6 months. Although, depending on each individual mouth, this can take a little longer.
How does it work?
Using state of the art technology, your dentist at Boston Orthodontics will take a 3D scan of your teeth. Using this information we can quickly show you a visual demonstration of how your teeth will look once the treatment has finished. We will also use this data to create your unique set of clear, plastic Invisalign aligners. The treatment itself involves wearing a different clear, plastic Invisalign aligner and changing it every one or two weeks. Over the course of the treatment these different sets of aligners will gradually move your teeth into their desired position and to perfectly align your teeth and jaw.
What are the benefits?
Not only is Invisalign a less invasive and less painful treatment, it also has the added benefit of being completely hidden to the untrained eye while you are having the treatment. This, obviously, is of great benefit to those of us who may feel self-conscious when socialising or speaking in public, or at work. Another fantastic benefit of Invisible Braces Wimpole Street at Boston Orthodontics is that you can also remove the device whilst eating and to brush your teeth as you normally would. This helps keep your teeth healthy and completely clean while the treatment is being carried out, unlike metal braces which catch food and snag on your toothbrush. Of course, being removable is also very useful if you want to take a photograph at a special event.
Why straighten teeth?
Although one of the great benefits of Invisalign is how practical it is whilst carrying out this treatment, ultimately it is all about the end results. Invisible braces have been proven to be as equally as effective as more traditional ‘train track’ braces in straightening teeth. Straight teeth generally means healthier teeth. When your bite is aligned, there are less gaps and traps for food and plaque to build up which cause decay. So with that in mind. Invisalign at Boston Orthodontics is the best investment, not just for your short term needs but also your long term dental health. Make sure you book an appointment soon!
