Are invisible braces for me?

Flashing straight teeth when you smile is the dream of many because most of us desire perfect pearly whites. However, when it comes to having them straightened, some are opposed to the idea of braces.

In today’s world, orthodontic appliances see a widespread, multi-generational use, with parents and their children now considering the possibility of realigning their teeth.

That being said, the stigma attached to braces still exists, with several Brits on the fence about straightening their pearly whites due to the metallic appearance of conventional straightening aids.

Fortunately, our clinic, Vogue Dental Clinic, offers the ideal teeth-straightening solution for self-conscious children and adults: invisible braces in Luton.

In this article, we’ll discuss the benefits of invisible braces, and why this straightening appliance could be right for you.

How do invisible braces in Luton work?

Invisible braces comprise multiple pairs of clear aligners that are slight variations of one another, that move your pearly whites into a desirable position slowly.

Every two weeks, you must replace your aligners with new ones to continue the process of realigning your teeth. 

When will I start seeing results?

The answer depends on the extent of the issue, or how much your teeth need to be moved or rotated.

If your bite needs severe correction or teeth are extremely crooked, your overall treatment time could last between 10 to 24 months.

If you’re an adult who had braces as a child, have noticed that your teeth have shifted and have opted for invisible braces, you could face a shorter time of approximately ten weeks!

Why are invisible braces in Luton the preferred choice?

In our opinion, invisible braces are popular due to their subtle design. The aligner trays are made from clear, high-quality plastic that’s undetectable. The only people who’ll know that you’re wearing them are the people you choose to tell.

However, an attractive appearance is just one advantage of wearing invisible braces. Where an inconvenience of wearing fixed braces is that you can’t remove the device to eat, thanks to the detachable nature of invisible braces, you can remove them whenever you need to.

Are there any disadvantages of wearing this straightening appliance?

Invisible braces are a life-changing device that has completely revolutionised the world of orthodontics. The user-experience has improved ten-fold, whereby the patients’ comfort during treatment is accounted for.

However, despite having many excellent features, it’s not a device suitable for everyone in that while it can successfully treat different malocclusions, it might prove ineffective in repairing more severe cases.

Additionally, people who wear invisible braces need to possess strict discipline because while the device can be removed, it should remain in your mouth most of the time. If you don’t wear the orthodontic appliance for the recommended time, your overall treatment might need to be extended.

The detachable nature can also become costly if you’re prone to losing things, as you’ll have to pay for extra sets of trays out of pocket. Specialised pouches that you can slip your retainers in will help you to keep track of them when they’re not in your mouth.
