It’s a decades old conundrum. You want to get your teeth straightened, but wearing metal braces for a year or more is not going to do your professional image any good. So, instead, you just put up with your wonky teeth and hope to goodness everyone else can too.
Why put up with wonky teeth when there’s Invisalign in Kings Hill? Of course, you may be putting up with wonky teeth because you have never come across this brilliant way of straightening out mild to moderate misalignments.
Even though Invisalign has been available for more than 20 years, it’s so discreet that unless someone tells you they are wearing these clear aligners over their teeth, you’d never notice.
Different from traditional braces
Invisalign in Kings Hill differs from bracket and wire braces in that there are no brackets and wires! Instead, you receive a series of smooth, rigid plastic aligners that look like mouth guards. They go on over your teeth, hugging the enamel and the gum line so closely that once they are in place, they pretty much disappear from view. Even you might not be able to see them when you glance casually at yourself in the mirror.
The aligners have carefully positioned pressure points located inside them. They press on your teeth, such that when you first put each one on, it will feel like it doesn’t fit. That’s deliberate. Stick with that feeling of discomfort and it was gradually ease over the next 7-10 days as the jawbone remodels itself to relieve the pressure.
When the aligner you are wearing starts to feel like a perfect fit, it has done its job. Discard it and put in the next in the series.
It takes a year on average for Invisalign to do its work. During this time, you must wear each aligner for at least 20 hours a day, but you take it out each time you eat or drink anything other than plain water.
Then brush your teeth and put the aligner back in. It’s that simple. No poking around behind brackets and wires to remove trapped food.
