For many of us, feeling great on the inside is mirrored on the outside, particularly when it comes to having a healthy smile. Our patients' happiness and confidence is at the heart of everything we do and we understand that how we look can influence how we feel on the inside. Being proud of your smile can have a huge effect on your confidence and happiness and we strive to care for our patients' teeth to the highest level.
Yet for many, the effort to maintain a great and healthy smile is constant and the effort to maintain and care for their teeth is often overlooked. Having perfectly aligned teeth and good dental hygiene is an achievable goal for many and there are a range of dental treatments available to achieve this. One widely used treatment is a system that gently and gradually moves your teeth into place by using a straightening aligner: traditional braces? Surprisingly, no.
If you have ever found yourself crossing your fingers in the waiting room, hoping that the dentist will come out and tell you that braces aren’t needed, then there is an impressive innovation that will make it easier and more convenient for you to achieve the perfect smile. Invisalign aligners are the clear plastic alternative to metal braces that is taking the dental industry by storm by offering a more convenient and comfortable experience. Invisalign can help straighten minor and cosmetic teeth misalignment and it seems that the days of treating teeth with hard metal braces are behind us.
Invisalign aligners are preferable to other teeth-straightening treatments due to the range of advantages that they offer. Not only is the system a discreet and effective treatment, but it also could also greatly improve the lives of those who use it. Here are three reasons why Invisalign could make you happier and why we offer Invisalign treatment.
The main benefit of Invisalign is the higher level of comfort that it offers compared to more traditional treatments. Whilst alignment treatments such as braces meant countless visits to the dentist, discomfort and occasional pain, and limitations on which foods you can enjoy. Braces, and other forms of alignment treatments that include brackets, can cause high levels of discomfort and, if not properly cared for, can cause issues such as tooth decay and plaque build-up due to inadequate cleaning. Invisalign reduces or eliminates these concerns, as the aligners are made specifically for your mouth and can be taken out in order to eat, drink and care for your dental hygiene.
Whilst Invisalign wearers are still advised to visit the dentist for checkups, they are required on a less frequent basis than those who opt for other methods of teeth realignment. Similarly, Invisalign users are less likely to encounter complications or require adjustments with their treatment than those with treatments such as braces.
Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic and offer a highly-discrete alignment process as they are virtually invisible when they are being worn. Invisalign wearers are able to carry out their daily routine with confidence and engage in activities that many of us take for granted, such as smiling freely in photographs without the worries of misaligned teeth or metallic smiles, and enjoying dinner with friends due to being able to remove their invisalign.
Created using innovative technology that puts their users first.
With Invisalign treatment, the aligners are created using precise and quick 3D digital scans of your teeth and mouth and our invisalign-trained team members will work with you to map out a custom treatment plan that puts your requirements and preferences first.
The Invisalign brand excels at achieving picture-perfect smiles for its users through an unobtrusive and discrete process. The aligners are monitored through a virtual care feature on the Invisalign app, which the attending doctor can use to easily monitor the progress of the alignment and offer virtual feedback, reducing the need for in-person appointments. You will also have access to this app and be able to view your progress, as well as set reminders to wear your invisalign, ensuring that the process runs smoothly.
With over 25 years of development and research, Invisalign aligners have proven to be a reliable, effective and innovative treatment for teeth misalignment. Invisalign patients are able to continue with their daily life without making any significant lifestyle changes, and the clear plastic of the aligners allows the users to see their progress without wires and brackets in the way.
