If you have decided that you want to finally take action and have treatment to straighten your teeth, the next step is to choose the best treatment for you. Along with the support of your dentist, there are a number of options available to most dental patients to choose from for treatment including Invisalign.
Invisalign has become hugely popular by delivering a new concept in teeth straightening and here are some of the reasons why you may find it is the best treatment for you.
The major draw for Invisalign is the discretion that it brings to orthodontic treatment. As the treatment uses transparent aligners that fit directly over the teeth, Invisalign offers a way to have treatment through ‘almost invisible’ braces.
See the end result at the start…
Thanks to a special 3D scanner, dentists can offer patients an accurate prediction of what their teeth will look like at the end of their treatment. Looking ahead to the end result will give you confidence and foster patience during treatment as you know what to look forward to.
Invisalign aligners are made from bespoke moulds taken from the patient’s mouth, which means they will have an excellent fit. This close fit to the teeth means any discomfort will be kept to an absolute minimum.
The aligners can be removed to eat and to clean teeth, ensuring that the patient can maintain high levels of cleanliness throughout treatment, reducing the chance of staining through hard to access spots that might be associated with wearing braces. As the aligners are placed over teeth instead of attached to the teeth the chance of any marks is also reduced.
Freedom to eat
Invisalign aligners need to be removed when eating which allows wearers to eat what they like without worrying about the effect on their braces. As long as teeth are cleaned properly, Invisalign leaves patients free to enjoy their favourite meals. However, to work effectively Invisalign must be worn for 22 hours a day with patients advised to only drink water when wearing the aligners.
Good dental hygiene
As Invisalign aligners can be removed for cleaning they allow for high standards of dental hygiene, helping to protect your teeth through the treatment.
Of course, the purpose of Invisalign treatment is to straighten teeth and the brand has an excellent reputation for delivering efficient results and leaving patients with the smile they wanted.
Invisalign is a fast, efficient and discreet way to straighten teeth, presenting patients with numerous benefits. However, not all patients are suitable for Invisalign treatment dependent on the severity of their problem.
A qualified dental practitioner will be able to advise you on whether Invisalign will work for you – as well as give you advice on other orthodontics options.
