So, you’ve just been to the dentist and you’ve been told you need braces. The first image that goes through your mind is that friend you had in school who had metal braces on their teeth and you understandably cringe a little.
In today’s society, many adults and teenagers opt out of having orthodontic treatment as they worry about how they will look with metal braces. This means that they will lose out on treatment options that can improve their confidence due to a short-term aesthetic issue.
Over the years, dentistry has advanced and so have orthodontic options for teeth that require realignment. At Leamington Spa Dental Practice, we can offer our patients a wide variety of orthodontic options, catered to their specific needs.
Invisalign in Leamington Spa is one of our more popular alternatives to braces that can straighten your teeth without disrupting your smile.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign in Leamington Spa is a clear, custom fitted brace that is made of a clear, flexible plastic. It fits over your teeth and is invisible to the naked eye. It is also removable.
This treatment is ideal for adults and teenagers who don’t want to wear traditional, fitted metal braces as it is easy to fit the treatment around your lifestyle and not impact your self-confidence.
Other benefits of Invisalign
Although being discreet is one of the main advantages of Invisalign treatment, there are many more that our patients at Leamington Spa have been happy to tell us about.
When you start Invisalign treatment, your dentist will take a 3D scan of your teeth. Then, they will use a 3D computer model to track each stage of your treatment. Your dentist will then make a set of custom fitted, clear braces for each stage of your treatment.
This means that from the beginning of your treatment, you are aware of each step and will have an idea of how your teeth will look throughout and at the end of the procedure, this predictability is extremely reassuring.
Although we have touched on the impact that Invisalign will have on your confidence, this is not the only positive aspect it will have on your lifestyle.
With traditional braces, people are often told to avoid certain foods, such as sticky or hard foods, as they may damage the braces. If you love toffee, this is a difficult situation!
With Invisalign, you can eat what you want, drink what you want and don’t have to worry about your brace; it is removable, so you can take it out prior to meals and just put it back in afterwards. No need to change your diet or avoid your favourite foods.
As Invisalign is removable, before brushing your teeth, you can simply take the aligner out, brush your teeth and put it back in. Traditional braces are often make it difficult to maintain good oral hygiene and can cause further issues due to this.
