If you are an adult who has considered teeth straightening, you have probably heard of Invisalign. This innovative treatment has been around for quite a few years and it is among the top choices for those who want straighter teeth without wearing unsightly metal brackets and wires.
At Vogue Dental Care, we appreciate that not everyone enjoys the idea of wearing metal braces in order to straighten their teeth. With Invisalign in Luton, you can straighten your teeth without anybody knowing. This treatment has many benefits over traditional braces and discreet appearance is only one of them.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign aligns your teeth with the use of clear, removable, plastic aligners, which are made with the help of 3D technology. To achieve straighter teeth, you will wear each aligner for two or three weeks (depending on your dentist’s instructions) before moving to the next one in the series. You can expect to wear the removable trays for approximately 20-22 hours a day, except while eating or brushing and flossing your teeth. In this time, your teeth will move gradually into their correct position. Treatment time is different for each patient, however, most people take 9-12 months to have their teeth straightened with Invisalign.
Benefits of Invisalign aligners
The most obvious benefit of Invisalign is invisibility. Since the aligners are made of transparent plastic, they are difficult to spot. Moreover, Invisalign aligners are made of smooth plastic with no metal in them, therefore, they cannot cut and scar the inside of your mouth or tongue. Because they are removable, personal oral hygiene is not compromised. All the same, you can enjoy your favourite foods. Finally, Invisalign is not painful at all and requires fewer adjustments by the dentist compared to regular braces.
Am I a good candidate?
If you wish to have Invisalign in Luton you are advised to call us at Vogue Dental Care and book an appointment. Generally, Invisalign is ideal for teenagers and adults with moderately crooked teeth. However, if you are typically forgetful or if you have an extremely complex bite problem or misalignment issue, our dentists may speak to you about more appropriate solutions, so you can still achieve a straighter, beautiful smile.
