Over the last few decades advances in dental technology mean that cosmetic dentistry has become an integral part of self-grooming. Everyone understands the importance of visiting the dentist on a regular basis for check-ups of their teeth, but cosmetic dentistry has now become more popular than ever, with a highly significant percentage of the adult population looking to improve the aesthetics of their smile.
Misaligned teeth can not only affect the way you feel about your smile, but can also have implications for the health of your teeth. This is because if your teeth are crooked or wonky then there are more hard-to-reach areas which you may not be able to clean effectively. Even your floss may not be able to reach them, which means that plaque and tartar can build up in your mouth and result in many different dental issues. Addressing the misalignment of your teeth will not only help you smile beautifully, but also promote better oral health for the remainder of your adult life.
Invisalign as an alternative to conventional orthodontics
Invisalign Luton is a highly popular cosmetic orthodontic treatment which has helped correct hundreds and thousands of smiles across the world. Its discretion and comfort make it a popular treatment choice among dentists and patients alike. This is because the majority of adults have a reluctance towards using conventional orthodontics, which involve metal braces that are fixed to the surface of your teeth for the duration of the treatment and are highly visible in your mouth. Although this still remains one of the most effective forms of straightening your teeth, most adults would rather be unhappy with the look of their smile than undergo such treatment. The advantage of Invisalign Luton is that, as its name suggests, it is almost invisible.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign Luton works using clear plastic aligners which are individually tailored and are manufactured using special three-dimensional scans. They provide maximum comfort and pinpoint precision to place enough pressure on your teeth to gradually move them into an optimal position. As with any orthodontic treatment it is important that you have healthy teeth and gums to be able to undergo Invisalign Luton. Your dentist will carry out a comprehensive examination of your mouth and make sure that any underlying dental issues are treated prior to your course of Invisalign. The treatment period itself usually takes between 6 to 12 months and is highly convenient, because the aligners can be taken out of your mouth and placed back in as necessary, therefore it does not impact any other aspects of your life.
The aligners need to be worn for approximately 22 hours of the day, however they need to be taken out at meal times or for drinks other than water. They are very easy to clean as you can brush them with your ordinary toothpaste and toothbrush and you’ll be given a cleaning solution in which you can soak them once a day, perhaps whilst you are enjoying your evening meal.
