Invisible braces – Do you want your teeth straightening to go under the radar?
For many adults, the prospect of orthodontic treatment creates something of a quandary. On the one hand, you may be incredibly self-conscious about your crooked or widely spaced teeth and really want to improve their appearance, but, on the other hand, wearing a brace may feel a massive red arrow pointing to these flaws.
This is why a growing number of invisible braces and aligners are now available, particularly for adults who want straighter teeth without advertising their treatment to all and sundry.
Here at Blossom Dental Care & Implant Studio, we specialise in using Invisalign clear aligners because they are suitable for use in more complex as well as simple orthodontic cases. Like traditional wire braces, Invisalign invisible braces use low forces to gradually move your teeth into alignment. Unlike traditional braces, the aligners are made from a lightweight clear plastic, which makes them almost impossible to spot, even close up.
The aligners are comfortable to wear and can be removed whenever you want to eat, drink or brush your teeth, meaning that dental hygiene is easier to maintain than with wire braces.
In a recent study – Braces versus Invisalign: Gingival parameters and patients’ satisfaction during treatment: A cross-sectional study by researchers from Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz in Germany – it was found that Invisalign invisible braces offer a higher level of comfort and patient satisfaction than fixed braces. It was also discovered that Invisalign braces can significantly improve your gum health.
With Invisalign invisible braces, you will be given a new aligner to wear every two weeks. These aligners gently move your teeth into the right position and are the perfect fit for each stage of your treatment. For this reason, you should find that the aligners are comfortable and less likely to interfere with your speech than fixed braces. The only evidence that you’re having treatment at all will be that your teeth look better and straighter every day.
If you want to know more about invisible braces in York, especially Invisalign clear aligners, then the first step is to book at appointment here at Blossom Dental Care & Implant Studio. We will talk to you about the results you want to achieve and discuss whether you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign teeth straightening.
To plot the movement your teeth will need to make and create the aligners, we use Invisalign’s special ClinCheck® software. This innovative 3D modelling software enables us to create and show you your virtual treatment plan, so you have a good idea of how your smile will look at the end of your treatment.
Invisalign invisible braces are popular because, as we are able to give you a series of aligners at each visit, the amount of time you actually spend here in the dentist’s chair is kept to a minimum. This means you can plan your orthodontic treatment around your busy life rather than having to plan your life around your treatment.
Invisalign invisible braces are perfectly suited to a wide range of dental problems, whereas some discreet invisible orthodontic solutions are more restrictive.
