Invisalign is a great method of teeth straightening in a discreet way. It is a highly popular treatment, which offers the same results in some cases as traditional metal braces. Invisalign Bromley acts to straighten the teeth with a gradual process, incrementally. The invisible braces are created from thermoplastic, this visually unobtrusive material enables the movement of teeth into the positioning the patient desires. These invisible braces come in sets and must be changed every two weeks so that the movement continues on to the prescribed result. Since the process is gradual the teeth straightening will not happen overnight. The aligners are custom made using 3D scans and X-rays of the patient’s mouth structure and all this will make sure that Invisalign Bromley fits on comfortably. If this treatment is something that is under consideration by you, get in touch with our dentist. We at Bromley Dental Practice have expertise in this field and can deliver the smile you have often dreamed of.
The various benefits of Invisalign treatment
There are plenty of benefits when receiving this orthodontic treatment from our dentist, not least the aesthetic advantage that comes with this process. One of the main boons of clear aligners is that they are removable when required, they also provide more comfort than the usual traditional metal braces. Metal braces have sharp, extruding edges which can cause cuts in the mouth area, but since Invisalign is made custom-made to match your unique mouth area it fits comfortably. Invisalign also fixes many dental problems, as having misaligned teeth can cause many dental issues. There is a higher risk of developing gum disease and plaque forming to cause dental cavities. By having straight teeth it is easier to brush them and you will have better overall dental health.
Another benefit is that there is no need for any dietary changes. When an individual has traditional metal braces there have to be food restrictions, this is because the wires must be treated carefully so that they do not dislocate. As Invisalign Bromley can be removed when eating you can eat whatever you wish to during the treatment period.
A popular advantage is that Invisalign treatment is normally of shorter duration. Metal braces can, in most cases, take approximately 16-18 months to achieve the final result. For others it may take up to two years or longer and this is a long period to wait to have straighter teeth. Traditional metal braces have a longer duration treatment period as they don’t have a specific movement planned out, whereas clear aligners have a specific movement plan from the very beginning of treatment.
Since Invisalign is designed and manufactured to be transparent, the public will not be aware that you are wearing braces. It means that you can have the best of both worlds, knowing you are having your teeth aligned in a subtle way, with little impact on your appearance whilst doing so, unlike many other methods of teeth straightening.
The side-effects of Invisalign treatment
Invisalign braces take time to get used to. There are a few potential side effects, however they are rare, for instance, some patients may get irritation or an allergic reaction to the Invisalign braces. However, this should heal itself within a few days, if not please contact us for help.
