Modern orthodontics have come a long way since first introduced to society. People of all ages suffering from crooked teeth now have more options available to them that fit their lifestyle needs.
Invisalign in Luton is the preferred choice of straightening device for teenagers and young adults who are looking for something more discreet than conventional braces.
Consult with our orthodontics team at Vogue Dental Care to see whether Invisalign in Luton or invisible braces are the right fit for you.
Conventional braces have been improving people’s smiles and dental health for decades. It is an investment that most do not regret because the result outshines the sometimes uncomfortable experience of wearing braces for an extended period.
But what if there was a way of making the process of obtaining straightened teeth easier?
Invisible braces were invented because there was a glaring gap in the market – young adults out of their school years would prefer to live with crooked teeth than sport a metallic smile for one to two years.
In this day and age, first impressions are everything, especially so if you are a professional trying to make it in the corporate world. Achieve the image you want while simultaneously straightening your teeth using the ever-discreet, clear aligner trays that are brought to you by Invisalign.
These aligner trays are custom designed to fit your teeth and so discreet that no one but you will know that you are wearing them.
Eat the food you want to and follow a regular cleaning routine
You have to be so careful about the food you eat when it comes to conventional straightening methods – taking a bite out of an apple could break a wire and eating a salad might leave you with leafy greens wedged in the metal, and a red face when a colleague has to point this out to you awkwardly.
Invisalign aligner trays are removable, which means you can enjoy the food you like without worrying about the damage it might cause, or getting morsels of your meal stuck in your teeth.
People with braces often complain about the time it takes to clean their teeth, especially after eating – this will not be something you should concern yourself with while using invisible braces.
But how does Invisalign work without using metal, brackets and archwires?
We follow the same method as any standard orthodontic device: we use pressure to move teeth gradually into place, but obviously, our execution is different.
You need to replace your aligner trays every two weeks – each set is a slightly different shape from the last. You might experience slight discomfort as your teeth adapt and move into their new position.
State-of-the-art technology means better fitting devices
Having putty pushed in your mouth is not fun – the taste of it is terrible, and some people possibly feel the urge to gag. Up until recently, to get dental impressions of your teeth, this part of the process was unpleasant but necessary and often needed to be repeated if the impressions turned out to be inaccurate.
The Itero Intraoral scanner has revolutionised the process entirely – making it more comfortable for the patient while producing highly accurate results. The scanner takes thousands of images of the teeth and mouth using a non-invasive, digitised magic wand. These images can be seen in real time, and allows the orthodontist to quickly and realistically map out the treatment going forward, and give you an indication of how your teeth might look post treatment before you have even started.
