Why Your Dentist in Luton Recommends Invisible Braces for Crooked Teeth

Having crooked teeth that ruin a perfectly good smile is a fairly common problem and there are a couple of options at your disposal to help solve this. One method you may find we recommend at Vogue Dental Care are corrective transparent braces as these are proving to be quite popular with patients looking to straighten up their smile.

What are they?

If you have never heard of this treatment, it’s essentially a clear plastic brace that we fit to your mouth and over time this corrective brace will slowly straighten your crooked teeth.

Each brace is also created to custom fit only your mouth. We manage this by using a series of scans with LEDs or lasers to map out the topography of your teeth. Then using this image, we mould the braces that you will be wearing. A neat benefit of using this treatment is that you will get to see how your corrected smile will look at the end of the treatment before you begin the procedure.

The treatment is fast and simple

The procedure for being fitted with invisible braces in Luton is relatively quick and easy. As we mentioned it just involves lights scanning your teeth, so there’s no residual dental plaster to worry about cleaning off your teeth. Plus, treatments are quick, and you will usually be out in a fairly short time, so you don’t have to commit to an entire afternoon in our practice.

They’re transparent

One of the reasons why this treatment has become so popular with our patients, aside from how non invasive treatments are, is the fact that the invisible braces in Luton are almost completely see-through. Having this transparency means that you won’t have to feel self-conscious about wearing orthodontic apparatus whilst out in public.

And considering that you will normally have to wear these for up to 12 months to permanently reposition your teeth, the fact they are practically invisible can be handy.

Easy to clean

When it comes to maintaining your brace, you will also find a relatively easy job ahead of you. To keep it sparkling and shiny we recommend you mix a small amount of aligner cleaning solution with water, then give this mixture a light scrubbing all along the brace. This will help clean off any built up bacteria and reduce staining.

Advice for wearing braces

After you are fitted for invisible braces in Luton there will be some mild discomfort wearing them as your teeth are being realigned with gentle force. We recommend you combat this with over the counter painkillers, you can also remove the brace briefly, but otherwise keep it in place for at least 22 hours a day. Taking the mouthpiece out too much could potentially hinder the whole realignment progress.

These are just a few of the benefits to trying out these braces. If you’re interested in fixing up a few of your crooked teeth without invasive treatments, then ask your dentist on your next appointment at the practice.
