Invisalign can be the right option for you if you want to have beautiful, straight teeth without having to wear braces. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign uses advanced software and digital moulds of your teeth to precisely design the movements required to create a straight and beautiful smile.
At Sutton Dental & Implant Clinic, our experienced dentists will examine your teeth thoroughly and determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign in Sutton Coldfield. Generally speaking, Invisalign is ideal for most adult patients with moderately crooked or misaligned teeth.
However, it may be not be a good option if you are suffering from severely misaligned teeth. In that case, your dentist may recommend traditional braces.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable, smooth, plastic aligners that are virtually invisible. This way nobody will know that you are undergoing teeth straightening treatment. Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective over many years of use and clinical trial.
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss your teeth. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will gradually move until they have reached their final position.
Visiting the dentist is required about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-10 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is 18-30 – both numbers vary from individual to individual.
Benefits of Invisalign
The biggest benefit of Invisalign is invisibility. Invisalign aligners cannot be seen while you are wearing them. Moreover, because the aligners are made of smooth, rounded plastic, they are less likely to irritate your mouth and soft tissues, like metal braces often can.
Invisalign aligners are entirely customised to fit your mouth and they can be removed, so you don’t have to change your daily habits. Finally, with Invisalign in Sutton Coldfield you will notice a significant difference to your smile before the treatment is complete as you gradually progress through the different aligners.
