Invisalign is an increasingly popular method of straightening teeth for both adults and teenagers. It is one of a range of discreet orthodontic products offered at Sutton Coldfield clinic Sutton Dental & Implant Clinic, and one which has minimal impact on your day-to-day life.
The benefits of teeth straightening treatment
Orthodontics is no longer considered exclusively for children and young people. At our Sutton Coldfield dental practice, we believe that it is never too late to straighten your teeth.
The health benefits of teeth straightening treatment should not be ignored; as well as increasing your self-confidence, straighter teeth are much easier to keep clean, because there are fewer gaps for particles of food to get trapped and plaque bacteria to build up.
In many cases, Invisalign is the best option for teeth straightening in adults who have a busy professional lifestyle, as well as for teenagers who are self-conscious (or selfie-conscious).
Invisalign treatment in Sutton Coldfield
Invisalign is designed to be highly discreet, as well as to work around your lifestyle. Instead of fixed braces, this treatment involves the use of clear, removable aligners, which fit comfortably over your teeth and guide them into an improved position.
When you come into our Sutton Coldfield dental practice for an Invisalign consultation, your dentist will perform a thorough examination to ensure this is the best treatment option, and will take impressions of your teeth in order for your aligners to be made.
Thanks to the advanced computer software that backs up Invisalign, your dentist will be able to show you exactly what results you can expect before treatment begins.
You will be prescribed a series of clear aligners, which you should wear for approximately 22 hours a day in order for treatment to progress as planned. You change your aligner every two weeks as your teeth start to move.
