Invisalign: the story
Once upon a time, going to the dentist in Sutton to have your teeth realigned used to mean visible braces that were fixed to the teeth. During this period, some adolescents chose not to realign their teeth, because they didn’t want people to see them wearing braces. Fast forward to the present day and dentistry now offers more discreet options. Invisalign is a treatment option for mild to moderate alignment issues. It comprises transparent plastic aligners that are virtually impossible to see when they are being worn over the teeth. The aligners push the teeth into the targeted position in as little as 6 to 18 months, and the patients all lived happily ever after!
There’s more to this story: the benefits of Invisalign
One of the advantages of Invisalign, aside from the fact that the aligners shouldn’t be noticeable to other people, is the fact that the aligners can be removed when you need them to be. For a couple of hours, you are able to take them out and you should do so for meals, as well as cleaning your teeth. This will allow you to continue eating whatever you choose and you won’t have anything in your mouth to prevent you from maintaining your excellent oral hygiene afterwards.
Another benefit of choosing Invisalign is the fact that when you receive your aligners, they have been made bespoke for you. This is because our dentist in Sutton will use a digital scanner to map the measurements of your mouth and will send these to the Invisalign laboratory. The aligners should, therefore, feel great to wear and by realigning your teeth and getting them into the correct position, they should be easier to clean. You could also discover that your speech improves, as well as your ability to chew food. If you have suffered from jaw pain, this could also be reduced or eliminated by realigning your teeth. What’s not to love about that?!
Invisalign for the whole family
Invisalign has a range for adults and a special range for teenagers. Invisalign Teen is a treatment that is specifically designed for teenagers, so if your child is concerned about their smile, they can also benefit from Invisalign.
