Removable And Discreet Teeth Straightening With Invisalign London

Removable And Discreet Teeth Straightening With Invisalign London

Straightening your teeth is a great way of improving the appearance of your smile. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, then you need to speak to your dentist and find out about the different types of orthodontic treatment available for you. Many people avoid orthodontic treatment as a child because they are scared or embarrassed by the idea of braces drawing further attention to their teeth. Others do not visit their dentists regularly enough to be recommended for orthodontic treatment, and some do not need braces when they are younger; however, as adults, either the shape of their jaws change, or they grow more teeth, for example, wisdom teeth, which result in orthodontic issues.

Whichever category you fall in, there are braces to suit you; these could be traditional metal braces, ceramic or clear braces, lingual braces or removable aligners. Your dentist can help you choose the proper type of braces to meet your unique dental needs. If you are provided with different options, you must decide on what you prefer. Would you like braces that must be fixed to your teeth and work continuously to address your orthodontic issues? Or would you prefer braces that can be taken out of your mouth and replaced as you wish? Note that the latter means that the results of the treatment will depend on how well you adhere to the protocol.

Removable Invisalign aligners

If you would prefer removable braces, speak to your dentist about Invisalign London. Invisalign is a modern method of teeth straightening. Removable braces are very popular because they are more convenient than fixed braces. However, it is also important to remember that fixed braces produce highly predictable results, whereas with removable braces such as Invisalign, although they are highly convenient, you must ensure you wear the braces correctly. This means that they need to be in your mouth for at least 20 hours a day. If you do not wear them correctly, you will not be able to achieve the results you are looking for. If you are determined to wear your aligners correctly to achieve optimal results, then Invisalign can be an excellent solution.

Invisalign can address different types of orthodontic issues; however, it is most suited to moderate orthodontic issues. It can correct cosmetic issues quickly and easily, sometimes in as little as three to six months. For mild and moderate orthodontic issues, the average treatment time is between 6 and 18 months. If you have more complex dental needs, for example, if you are correcting a bite disorder, the treatment can take between 12 and 24 months.

As well as being removable, another excellent advantage of Invisalign is that it is almost invisible, as the name suggests. So if you are embarrassed by your teeth or conscientious about drawing further attention to your mouth, rest assured that you can straighten your teeth without anyone even noticing.

How does Invisalign work?


The aligners themselves are designed using advanced digital dental technology. An intra-oral scan of your mouth will be translated into a digital image. Your dentist will address the misalignment of your teeth and show you how your teeth can look once they are well aligned using Invisalign. The before and after positions of your teeth will be measured and used to design the aligners to help you achieve these results. Each custom-made Invisalign aligner will move your teeth approximately 0.25 millimetres towards the desired positions. Each aligner should be worn for approximately 2 weeks, after which you must move on to the next aligner in the series. The aligners will be numbered to avoid confusion. You will be provided with the full set of aligners at the start of the treatment, and the process can be carried out in the comfort of your own home. You can keep in touch with your dentist through an online monitoring app, discussing any concerns or asking any questions when necessary.

Once you have completed straightening your teeth with Invisalign, you will have a neatly aligned smile that is pleasant to look at and will help boost your self-confidence and self-esteem. By straightening your teeth with Invisalign, you will also be able to brush your teeth more effectively, reduce the chance of developing tooth decay and gum disease and enjoy healthier teeth and gums.
