Have the flexibility of fully removable orthodontic treatment, with the virtually invisible Invisalign
It’s the time of year where there is great food to be eaten and plenty of family photos to be taken; nobody wants to be held back by restrictive and highly visible braces. Invisalign could be the answer to solving your orthodontic problems with virtually invisible treatment. The added flexibility of being removable means you won’t have to feel embarrassed during those family photos, nor hold back at the dinner table.
Straightening teeth which are naturally crooked or misaligned is vital to maintaining good oral health. Not only providing a more cosmetically pleasing look, orthodontic treatment can solve issues such as: joint and jaw pain, bite issues and difficulty with speech. In the past, orthodontic treatment only meant braces, a bulky highly visible and restrictive treatment. At The Dental Practice, it is possible to straighten your smile without the need for braces. Invisalign, a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth, offers a range of advantages over traditional braces. If you are looking to get your teeth straightened here are some of the advantages that Invisalign can offer.
Traditional braces consist of metal brackets being glued to your teeth and held together using wires. Invisalign on the other hand has been specifically designed to be virtually invisible. Using clear aligner trays to gently push the teeth into their desired position, Invisalign is worn over the outside of the teeth and is extremely subtle. So when it comes time for those family photos around the Christmas tree you, won’t have to worry about embarrassing braces.
Made of smooth, comfortable, BPA-free clear plastic, Invisalign aligners are comfortable to wear. Whereas traditional metal braces have wires that can poke and cut the sides of your mouth and tongue causing discomfort.
Invisalign aligners are fully removable meaning you can eat, drink, brush and floss more naturally. Traditional braces which are not removable require a lot more effort when it comes to cleaning, as food can become trapped and cleaning in behind wires can be difficult. Traditional braces can also restrict the kinds of food you are able to eat, not the kind of thing you want to hear when lining up around the table for Christmas dinner.
Although Invisalign aligners are completely removable, it is recommended that aligners are left in for 22 – 24 hours per day over the course of your treatment.
If you are looking to straighten your smile, Invisalign is an excellent choice which provides comfort, convenience and a great aesthetic look. If you have any questions regarding treatment, or would like to book an appointment, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us today.
