Straight teeth are important not only for children, but also for adults. As we age, our teeth tend to grow inwards and become crowded – a common issue for many teens and adults. As a result, it is difficult to keep teeth and gums clean and healthy.
There are many reasons as to why teeth can become misaligned, but luckily, at Vogue Dental Care, we are able to correct these issues with Invisalign. Invisalign clear aligners provide an effective method to straighten your teeth while remaining almost invisible. This means you can get the smile you have always wanted without altering your lifestyle.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign is an alternative to metal braces and a means of aligning your teeth into straighter positions. Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of transparent, custom-made, plastic aligners.
Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into their correct positions, based on the exact movements your Luton dentist has already planned for you. You will need to wear your aligners at least 22 hours per day and see your dentist every 4 to 6 weeks for review and a set of new aligners. This makes it possible to straighten your teeth anywhere between 6 and 12 weeks, depending on your case.
Being a removeable appliance, Invisalign allows you to take your aligners out at mealtimes and when you brush or floss your teeth. However it is important to note that if you wear your aligners for fewer hours than recommended, you could end up significantly increasing the amount of treatment time overall.
Am I eligible?
Treatment with Invisalign in Luton is ideal for people with moderately crowded upper or lower teeth, gappy teeth, protruding front teeth and uneven bites. If you are suffering from severe misalignments or your teeth are extremely rotated, you may find that Invisalign is not suitable for you, In these cases a different teeth straightening treatment may be best. Your dentist will help you determine your suitability.
