The Invisible Treatment for Crooked Teeth

Invisalign is an attractive alternative to metal braces. These aligners are less conspicuous, more stylish, and are very efficient at straightening teeth. Instead of metal braces that dentists fix to your teeth throughout the whole treatment process, you will get removable, plastic or acrylic aligners. In London, Invisalign specialists will digitally scan your teeth and use a computer to show you the treatment process. 

You will get different versions of your aligners, as the creators tailor them especially to allow your teeth to adjust throughout the treatment process slightly. Here are the types of Invisalign:

Invisalign Express 

This procedure is for those who require only minor adjustments. Through five stages that last around two weeks each, specialists can treat minor crowding or spacing issues. Dentists may also recommend this as a precursor to other cosmetic treatments like veneers. 

Invisalign for Teens 

Invisalign is perfect for teenagers as its creators designed them so that they would not intrude in an active lifestyle, especially if the teens play contact sports. Invisalign is also ideal for teens as the near-invisible design prevents the wearer from feeling self-conscious. On top of that, these aligners will not impede the teen’s daily routine as they do not have to worry about food trapped within the braces. Invisalign’s creators also included unique features in the design to accommodate erupting wisdom teeth.

Invisalign for Adults 

Adults who are reluctant to wear metal braces find solace in the fact that Invisalign is practically invisible and much more comfortable to wear. Also, since these aligners are removable, they promote better oral health.

To know more about Invisalign, you can set an initial consultation with a dentist in your area so they can give you a rough estimate on how long the treatment will last and how much it would cost. They can also determine if you are a good candidate for an Invisalign treatment or if there are other orthodontic options more suitable for you. Make sure to visit a certified Invisalign specialist in your area!
