What are invisible braces, and why may I choose to receive invisible braces?

invisible braces in Luton are essentially a form of orthodontics. Orthodontics within modern dentistry comes in many forms, however, essentially it deals with the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of badly positioned teeth and jaws. Many individuals may only think of traditional metal braces when orthodontics come to mind, however this is not the only type of teeth straightening device available. Invisible braces and traditional metal braces differ in the way they produce results, but they both aim for straighter teeth. ‘Invisible braces’ refer to more subtle forms of orthodontics (such as clear aligners). Individuals who may prefer invisible braces to more traditional forms of orthodontics may wish for discreet dentistry. People may feel as if traditional metal braces could hinder their career prospects, as well as reduce their self-confidence. These subtle braces come in several forms, one of these being clear aligners.

What are clear aligners, and why may this be a preferred form of invisible braces in Luton?

Clear aligners could be argued as the most popular form of subtle orthodontics, and have risen dramatically in popularity within recent years. Despite common misconception, Invisalign is just one provider of clear aligners, and not in fact the general name for clear aligners. Invisalign or ‘clear aligners’ are essentially transparent plastic trays which are inserted within the patient’s mouth. Clear aligners are popular due to their subtle appearance, and the fact that they are virtually invisible.

How do invisible braces in Luton work?

At our practice, Vogue Dental Care in Luton, we aim to reduce the number of dental appointments required, which is why we create the clear aligners as soon as the treatment process commences. During the Invisalign process, your teeth imaging is stored on our computer, which is how we track our patients’ alignment process. Initially, we allow our patients to decide which orthodontic option is best suited for them, in a consultation. During an initial consultation, our dentists will take an impression of your mouth, in order to create the first set of clear aligners (transparent trays). Invisalign works by slowly encouraging the teeth to move in a certain direction, doing so by you replacing your aligners every few weeks.
