It might sound too good to be true, but you can really change your smile discreetly, effectively and, perhaps most importantly, more comfortably with Invisalign. Having mild to moderate alignment issues such as spacing between your teeth, crowded teeth, under or overbites, can all be treated with a popular removable aligner called Invisalign. There are numerous reasons why Invisalign is so effective and there a many benefits to choosing Invisalign Hertfordshire.
What it is
Invisalign is a convenient method for realigning your teeth, because it consists of clear plastic aligners, which fits over the teeth just above the gum line. The reason they are more comfortable is because they are 3D printed from your iTero scan to fit your mouth accurately. This 3D scan takes digital images to create a perfect model of your teeth. You are provided with a series of aligners. They are changed weekly and each set applies a small amount of pressure to gradually move your teeth into the perfect position. The iTero scan can also be used to create a digital animation, so you can see what your teeth will look like, before you even get started on wearing Invisalign!
Apart from the obvious benefit of getting a lovely smile, there are other reasons that Invisalign will make you cheerful. Perhaps one of the key reasons patients love Invisalign is because the aligners are not really noticeable. The other major benefit is that the aligners are removed for eating so you are not limited to only some foods. Oral hygiene is not effected as you can brush and floss your teeth as normal (and maybe get a sticker from the dentist next time you visit!). The plastic material the aligners are made from is also much more difficult to damage than other brace systems such as fixed metal braces with wires and brackets, so this means you shouldn’t need to be hot footing it to the dentist for too many emergency appointments, which means less time off work or school. And speaking of school, there is a special range of aligners for teenagers as well. Results can be seen in as little as 4-6 months, so it’s potentially a great option for those impatience patients, but be prepared that it can also take up to 15 months in more complex cases.
What to do now
If you are interested in finding out more about Invisalign, then you simply need to book in for an initial free consultation with your dentist to discuss your thoughts. Your dentist will be able to examine your mouth and will be able to advise about suitable treatments. You will be able to ask as many questions as you need to about any of the treatments that are offered and your dentist should be more than happy to explain everything clearly, so you can make an informed decision about the treatment you decide to go for. And, if Invisalign is your choice, you can get the most out of your smile in a convenient and discreet way – and that’s something to grin about!
