Make your impression with Invisalign
Do straight teeth seem like a far away dream? Perhaps you’ve wanted to straighten your crooked, crowded teeth for a while but don’t know how to. For many people the word ‘orthodontics’ or ‘braces’ conjures up all sorts of negative images about wires and metal being attached to the teeth.
Often an experience as a child or teenager is responsible for evoking these responses. Today, however there are many alternatives to the old fashioned ‘train tracks’, and one of the leading treatments in this field is Invisalign.
If you don’t want to make it look obvious that you’re wearing a brace, Invisalign is the choice for you. A market leader in clear aligner orthodontics, state of the art Cad-Cam technology is used to form an impression or digital scan of the teeth, from which a sequence of almost invisible plastic appliances can be produced.
At Woodborough House dental practice, we offer Invisalign to gradually straighten teeth. Designed for consecutive wear they straighten without the need for wires and laborious visits to the orthodontist. It is the most comfortable orthodontic appliance to wear and as it’s removable, you can take it out to eat and drink although it’s recommended you wear it for at least 22 hours a day. It’s virtually impossible to detect and it’s also the healthiest option for the teeth and gums as cleaning and oral hygiene is much simpler than conventional braces.
Choosing to straighten the teeth will not only improve the appearance of your smile but it can also help to slow down the effects of tooth wear and help to correct uncomfortable or damaging bites.
Invisalign is one of the fastest growing dental treatments in the world at the moment and our resident expert, Dr Mark Hughes has treated over 500 cases with Invisalign in the last few years alone. As it’s remarkably easy to wear and the treatment is usually quite simple, the average treatment lengths are from 12 to 18 months, but this can vary greatly, due to individual complexity.
