Battersea Orthodontics – Enjoy Comfortable And Convenient Treatment With Invisalign

Posted Date :        April 8, 2015
Comfortable And Convenient Treatment With Invisalign

Many of us can admit to being envious of friends or work colleagues who have a knock-out smile. There’s something about a great looking smile that lights up a person’s face and helps others feel instantly more relaxed and comfortable around them. Crooked teeth can make you feel self conscious and even prevent you from smiling, mistakenly leading other people to think you are a miserable person. It’s true to say that most adults don’t relish the thought of wearing traditional metal braces on their teeth, but thanks to Invisalign Braces, Battersea dentists such as ourselves can offer an alternative method of tooth straightening which is both comfortable and convenient.

Straight teeth aren’t something that all of us are blessed with. Large teeth can be forced to grow in crooked, missing teeth can create gaps between teeth, and over crowded teeth can cause bite problems. However, dental problems such as these and more besides can be easily treated with Invisalign.

A corrective programme which means that:

  • Teeth are straightened using a series of soft, transparent aligners which gently guide the teeth to their correct position. Aligners are changed every couple of weeks as progress moves forward.
  • The aligners can be removed by the wearer to eat, and to brush and floss their teeth.
  • Invisalign maintains oral hygiene and lets the dentist treat any signs of decay far easier than if a patient was wearing metal braces.

Benefits of Invisalign

Unlike traditional braces which are bulky, unattractive, and uncomfortable to wear, Invisalign braces are clear and discreet, soft and comfortable, and because they can be removed easily, also very convenient.

Traditional braces can restrict the foods you eat. Hard and crunchy foods can bend the wires and sticky foods can get stuck on the wires. Invisalign wearers can remove their braces in order to eat anything they like and then simply pop them back in.

Invisalign braces give the wearer the choice of removing them to have photos taken for special occasions such as weddings and proms.

Although Invisalign aligners can be removed, it is essential that they are worn for at least 22 hours a day or progress can be disrupted. If progress goes off track, then the next series of aligners may not fit how they should, preventing them from doing their job correctly.
