For patients with mild to moderate tooth alignment issues, there is discreet treatment available that achieves results in as little as 6 to 18 months. Invisalign Hertfordshire is one of these available treatments and has been gaining in popularity as one of the leading brands worldwide. Why? Because Invisalign’s aligners are convenient, comfortable and barely noticeable when worn.
Invisalign is a alignment system consisting of retainers that are made of transparent plastic.
When the aligners are placed over the teeth, they are barely visible, with only the teeth showing through them. Every week, patients are required to change into a new aligner, and each one applies pressure to the teeth to move them into the desired position. They are comfortable to wear because each aligner is custom-made for the patients teeth using iTero technology. iTero is a digital scan, which is used to scan the patient’s mouth to get the measurements required for their aligners to be manufactured in the Invisalign laboratory. From this scan, it is also possible for dentists to show patients what their teeth will look like upon completion of the treatment before they even get started. It’s a glimpse into the future, which shows how far dentistry has come!
For patients who are looking to realign their teeth without the hassle of having to wear fixed braces, Invisalign is a sound investment of their time and effort. With treatment being completed in as little as 4 to 6 months for some patients, it can feel as though the treatment has passed in the blink of an eye. The aligners should only be removed for around 2 hours a day, to allow time to eat, drink and brush teeth. It is very easy to maintain a great oral hygiene routine whilst using Invisalign, because patients can brush and floss without having anything on their teeth that gets in the way of this.
The benefits don’t stop there either! Addressing alignment issues and getting the teeth into the correct positions can make it easier to brush and floss, allowing you to get into those hard-to-reach areas more easily. What’s more, some patients’ misaligned smiles can cause jaw pain, chewing issues and speech difficulties, so getting their teeth in order with Invisalign can address these problems. And, let’s not forget that beautiful smile! Crowded teeth, gapped teeth, crossbites, overbites and underbites can all be treated with Invisalign, leaving patients with wonderful smiles that they can feel proud of.
