Convenient Invisible Teeth StraighteningSeptember 8, 2018 / byHealthier Societies / Categories : Dental
Anyone who has wonky teeth who hasn’t yet heard of Invisalign in Stanmore needs to get up to speed, sharpish. Why? Invisalign is an invisible teeth-straightening system. Enough said. Invisalign is the stuff of dreams for people who would love to have their teeth straightened, but hate the idea of wearing visible braces. Invisalign uses a series of invisible aligners to get teeth straight without drawing attention to themselves. If that wasn’t great enough, here’s the next bonus. They also work in a relatively short time period.
So, what do Invisalign aligners look like?
Invisalign aligners look much like the retainers that people wear after they’ve had traditional braces. They’re made of a clear, thin, plastic material and are custom-made to fit perfectly over the wearers teeth. Well, almost perfectly. They need to be slightly ill-fitting in order to work. Many reputable dental practices are offering Invisalign in Stanmore and other areas across the UK. The Centre of Dental Excellence for example offers a fantastic Invisalign service for their patients in Stanmore.
How does Invisalign in Stanmore work?
As anyone who’s worn Invisalign aligners will know that at first the aligners will feel as though they don’t quite fit. They will create pressure in one or more areas. The feeling doesn’t last for long though. In 1-2 weeks, the aligners will have done their job and feel comfortable in the mouth. This is the time to put the current set of aligners to the side and move on to the next set, with new pressure points. The system involves wearing a number of sets of aligners throughout the treatment. Each set moves teeth one step closer to being beautifully straight.
What’s the catch?
Compliance is the name of the game. To get straight teeth with Invisalign aligners, people have to wear them for the advised amount of time each day, around 22 hours. This can be a challenge if the wearer doesn’t like the feeling of having the Invisalign aligners in their mouth. However, usually the promise of a great smile is enough to keep up their side of the deal. Average treatment times are around a year.
