Why You Should Invest In Invisalign
Everybody wants a beautiful, straight, white smile but few people are lucky enough to have one naturally without needing some help from their dentist.
As much as those who suffer from misaligned, overcrowded or gapped teeth would like to have them straightened, the thought of having to go through the process of traditional metal braces and everything that comes with them is often too daunting.
However, for a lot of patients there is the option of Invisalign, which unlike the train track style braces people commonly associate with orthodontics, they can straighten teeth quickly, comfortably and discretely.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign are custom made, removable, clear retainers which work to gradually move teeth over time into the correct position. These almost completely invisible aligner trays come in numbered sets, each needing to be worn for around 2 weeks at a time in the correct sequence as determined by the orthodontist.
Here we take a look at some of the reason why investing in Invisalign Essex might be the right decision.
Improved Oral Health
Patients who have an underbite, overbite, or teeth that are crowded or misaligned can develop various long term dental issues. When the teeth are at an awkward angle, or overlap it makes them very difficult to clean properly, leading to food particles becoming trapped, causing bacteria, gum disease and decay which require extensive treatment.
Correcting the alignment of your teeth can help to lower your chances of developing these issues now and further down the line.
A Comfortable Solution
Most people would likely be aware of or associate conventional braces with discomfort and pain due to the sharp brackets, regular tightening’s and metal material which can rub on the gums and cause cuts, sores and ulcers.
Although there is always some tightness when moving onto a new tray in the sequence, Invisalign is much more comfortable to wear and because they are custom made for each patient they should fit perfectly in the mouth with no rubbing or irritation.
Metal braces are fixed to the teeth and depending on the complexity of the treatment and the individual patient can need to stay in place for years at a time.
One of the best reasons for investing in Invisalign is that they deliver great results without being attached to the teeth. These clear, plastic, retainer style trays are removable and can be taken out quickly and discretely in a matter of seconds when you need to eat or brush your teeth. They do need to be worn for at least 22 hours a day in order to achieve the expected results, but this means that if there is a special occasion then you have the freedom to remove them if you wish.
Being worried about how your teeth look when you speak, smile or eat in front of other people can have an extremely negative effect on a person’s self-confidence, causing them to attempt to keep away from social situations, cover their mouth with their hands, avoid smiling and so on.
With Invisalign, not only are the final results going to give you a great looking smile, but you won’t feel more self-conscious during the treatment like you would with traditional braces. Instead, you can go about your normal life wearing these near invisible aligners and enjoy seeing your teeth gradually improve week by week.
