Fewer and fewer people seem to have wonky teeth these days, but you never seem to see anyone wearing braces. Maybe you have even noticed some people in your life, a colleague, or someone in your local shop, having lovely straight teeth when you could have sworn they were wonky. How on earth did they do that without you ever seeing them wearing braces? Well, in Luton, Invisalign could be how.
At Vogue Dental Care in Luton, Invisalign is one of our favourite ways to get wonky teeth to line up, especially for adults. We say that because a lot of adults would far rather go through life with misaligned teeth that are hard to keep clean and fail before their time, than suffer the indignity and embarrassment of wearing metal train track braces. After all, it’s hard to be taken seriously when you have a railway junction where your teeth should be.
In Luton, Invisalign does away with all those problems, by being as good as invisible on your teeth.
The advantages of Invisalign
The Invisalign system doesn’t even use brackets and wires. Instead, it uses very thin aligners that look like mouth guards. The transparent plastic aligners are only 0.3 millimetres thick and all but disappear once you snap them on over your teeth. The casual observer, actually even your friends, won’t know you are using Invisalign unless you choose to tell them.
Even when you are eating, Invisalign can remain your secret. You just take out the aligner and store it in its case before meals. Then, you can eat whatever you like without worrying about stuck food. You just need to clean your teeth before you put your aligners back in. Also, you need to wear them for at least 20 hours a day if the carefully designed pressure points inside are going to nudge your teeth into alignment according to your schedule.
After your teeth reach alignment, they will need a bit of holding in place, which means wearing a retainer for about a year. Without one, teeth tend to drift around. You can get one bonded to the backs of your teeth or wear one at night.
