Invisalign: the discreet teeth straightening treatment for adults

Whilst teenagers can benefit from this treatment too, a majority of the people who choose to have this treatment are adults. Unlike traditional straightening treatments, this appliance is barely visible and can even be removed. This makes it a much more discreet straightening option, tempting adults to get their front teeth straightened out once and for all. Whilst Invisalign Golders Green is only capable of rectifying minor misalignment issues, it is capable of correcting your smile in a much shorter time frame than other appliances. This makes it the ideal treatment if you have an important event coming up later in the year and wish to be photo-ready for it. To find out whether this treatment could benefit you we advise that you book a consultation appointment with one of our practitioners at The Garden Dental Practice so that they can carry out a full assessment of your mouth. They will be able to tell you the very same day if you are suitable for this treatment or not.

Say goodbye to bulky metal appliances

The main difference between Invisalign Golders Green and traditional appliances is that clear, removable aligners are used to correct your teeths’ positions instead of metal brackets. Metal brackets can be unsightly and can even end up marking the surfaces of your teeth if you aren’t careful. These clear aligners are made from a thin, clear plastic and sit comfortably over your own teeth. You don’t need to worry about what they look like, as they are almost invisible and incredibly difficult for other people to spot unless they know that they are there. In addition to this, the aligners are completely removable. It might be annoying to have to keep taking them out to eat food, but you can enjoy eating your favourite meal without worrying about getting food stuck in your appliance.

Simple rules for a long-lasting smile

Invisalign Golders Green does not just magically transform your smile on its own. You need to be making sure that you are doing your bit too, if you want to get the best results out of your treatment. This means following all of the instructions that your practitioner gives you, but luckily there aren’t many. You will be given multiple sets of aligners to wear in a certain order, as each set will gradually move your teeth closer to their final positions. It is vitally important that you do not try to skip a set of aligners or move onto your next set early, as this can end up damaging both your teeth and the aligners and may end up hindering the progress of your treatment overall. You will also need to ensure that you are wearing your aligners for the correct amount of time each day. Whilst you need to take them out for eating and brushing your teeth, you should still make sure that you are wearing them for at least twenty-two hours of the day. To help prevent damaging your aligners you should make sure that you are only drinking water when they are in.
