Invisalign is a revolutionary way to achieve straighter teeth. It uses a sequence of custom-moulded and virtually invisible aligners that slowly reposition your teeth. Most people won’t even notice you’re in treatment, and the result? A brand new, beautiful smile that you’re proud to flash.
Invisalign is a straightforward treatment that takes around 12 months to complete. It is often unnoticeable, and the treatment programme doesn’t disrupt busy lifestyles – the aligners are removed only when brushing, flossing and eating. The system is also easy to use, making it popular worldwide – over half a million people have used Invisalign as alternative to uncomfortable, fixed braces.
An amazing new smile can now be achieved without irritating bands or wires in your mouth. You start out with your first custom aligner, and then every two weeks it is changed to move your teeth little by little. Regular checkups from your dentist allow progress to be shown and any issues to be corrected.
Straighter teeth are not only aesthetically more pleasing, they are also healthier; widely-spaced or crowded teeth allow for bacterial build-up and red and swollen gums, which are signs of gum disease. There is also an increased risk of cavity formation. By straightening your teeth you can do wonders for both your smile and your oral health! Your gums will surround your teeth more tightly when the treatment is complete, further increasing the health advantages.
With Invisalign removable teeth aligners, a better standard of oral hygiene is maintained. The aligners are smooth, but are removed when eating, resulting in no trapped food between braces – a hive for bacterial growth. In comparison to standard braces, cleaning your teeth is much easier. You can also brush and floss as normal to remove plaque and food, preventing plaque build up, tooth decay and gum disease.
Furthermore, properly aligned teeth also place less strain on the jaw bones and muscles. Also, the pain associated with an under or overbite can be lessened with straighter teeth, and a corrected bite can improve problems associated with chewing and speech. Invisalign invisible teeth straightening can therefore improve your smile appearance, oral health and any problems associated with an incorrect bite.
